Jamal Williams – the Most Valuable Player in last season’s BBL Trophy final – will return to the Worcester Wolves for a second season.

The Canadian joined the club with a reputation as a hard worker, but proved at critical points during the last campaign that he can offer much more than graft alone.

When Wolves triumphed over Glasgow Rocks in March in the BBL Trophy Final, it was not one of the team’s usual suspects that grabbed the individual headlines, but, instead, it was the 27-year-old Williams.

He led the way with 26 points, including a burst of ten points in as many minutes in the critical last stretch of the victory.

Talking about his return to the club, Williams said: “I’m looking forward to seeing familiar faces and to another season with the Wolves. I’m very thankful for another opportunity to play in an amazing arena and in front of the best fans in the BBL, the Wolf Pack!”

Small forward Williams averaged an overall return of six points and four rebounds last season, while being on court for just over half of the forty minutes game duration, and coach Paul James is delighted that he will be able to call upon Williams again in the coming season.

“Jamal joined us last year after spells with several BBL sides,” James said. “I knew when we signed him that the BBL had not yet seen the best of him. 

“He’s always been a solid player, but he had the chance to go beyond that with us. He grabbed that chance with both hands and was a fundamental part of our success. It’s great that he’s back on board for another year and is ready to help our quest to continue winning trophies.”
