The Knights are delighted to announce that Romonn Nelson and Oliver Hannam will be representing the Knights in the BUCS Premiership North and NBL Division 2 in the 2016/17 season. Both players will be studying their Master’s degrees at Newcastle University and both players bring a lot of talent and experience to the roster.
Nelson is coming into the programme off very strong seasons in NBL Division 1 with Tees Valley Mohawks. Romonn has proven he can score in the league averaging 23 points per game in Division 1 in the 14/15 season. Nelson will be coming to the Knights to refine his point guard skills and continue to his development as a player. The explosive guard can play multiple positions and will be looking to help the Knights continue their success.
Hannam is also coming to the Knights with a wealth of NBL Division 1 experience having played for Team Northumbria in NBL Division 1 and in the BUCS Premiership whilst studying there as an undergraduate. Oliver is a strong and smart defender and will bring a toughness the Knights will need in their new divisions. The creative, high IQ guard can also play multiple positions and his experience will benefit the younger members of the team. Hannam has also represented England at U15 & U16 level.
