Worcester Wolves have signed up a new player ahead of the start of the season.

Andrew Bachman is the latest player to be added to the Wolf pack.

The 6’6’” guard forward arrives in Worcester straight from Tiffin College in America and rejoins former team mate Ashton Khan.

Andrew said: "I am extremely excited to be joining the Worcester Wolves basketball club.  I have heard many good things about the club, coach James, the current roster of players, and the level of fan appreciation.  

“I am eager to get started and work hard in order to earn court time as a first year pro and do whatever I can to help make the team better.

“I would also like to take this time to thank God, my mom, dad, brother, friends and all my former team mates and coaches who have played a part in helping me to achieve this incredible opportunity."

Last season Bachman attended NCAA2 Tiffin College where he averaged 11.2ppg, 5.3rpg, shooting 35 per cent from behind the 3-point line and 80 per cent from the free throw line.

Coach Paul James said he was pleased with the latest signing.

He said: “Andrew will bring more quality and competition to our guard positions and I like that. He is a talented player who reads the game well and scores in different ways so I’m very happy that Andrew has decided to join our basketball programme.”

Wolves Managing Director Mick Donovan said: "As the new season approaches, we have been really happy with our recruitment so far and Andrew certainly strengthens the Wolves team that we will be putting on the court."

The Wolves will play two pre–season home games ahead of the regular season opener against Cheshire Phoenix. The pre-season games will be played on Friday 16th September against the Sheffield Sharks and Monday 19th September against Bristol Flyers.

Both games will tip off at 7.30pm and tickets can be purchased from the University of Worcester Arena box office online or by phone 0844 888 9991 or via the Ticketline Mobile App.
