Richard Wellings Small Forward for the Senior Men's team

RWellings3

Rich was a fantastic pick up for the mens team at the beginning of last season. He brings a lot of experience to the team having played the game at the highest level in this country. I was excited when I heard he was interested in coming to the club having first met Rich at Milfield Basketball Camp when he was playing for Reading Rockets in div 1. He was a big part of our success last season.
