Teesside Lions Top Signing - Basketball Star
Just in case this a new story for you this is what has been going on over the past few months at the massively ambitious Teesside Lions-

It all started with a real head turning moment at the start of May - National Basketball League Division Three outfit Teesside Lions have pulled off a major coup with the signing of GB Coach Marc Steutel in a move that will raise eyebrows around the sports community both at home and abroad.

Steutel is one of the most highly rated coach’s in Europe and turned down several offers including BBL and overseas to commit to the Lions.

He is a respected international coach and has been part of the team that has produced Great Britain’s best season with an impressive 7 wins & 1 loss record in 2019/20.

Steutel is synonymous with success. Leading his country to an 81-73 victory in February over powerhouse Germany in the European Qualifiers as the acting head coach is the pinnacle so far, but he also boasts an envious record of achievement.

The extensive list includes leading GB u20 to their highest ever finish at the European Championships in 2018, five National Championships with Northumbria from 2011-2020 and three time NBL Coach of The Year.

Then in the last few weeks - Teesside Lions have announced three major new player additions including the ‘huge’ signing of 7 foot centre Theo Turner in an audacious move that will be recognised as the biggest player signing in the club’s history and one of the biggest signings in the National League.

American Justin Loblack and Newcastle model Alex Parr have also signed for The Lions

So, massively ambitious then at Teesside Lions

Teesside Lions Top Signing - Basketball Star
Excited for the upcoming season. I started going to watch the Lions at the back end of last season just before lockdown and enjoyed it. Despite the club clearly being stretched with injuries and players not being available, they were great in parts. I'm hoping it's possible to attend games when the season starts.
