Take a trip back in time, 5 years to be exact and you’d find the Wasps preparing for their first season in the National League. Now five years on six faces remain on this year’s roster that have been with the club every step of the way.

John Kelsey, James Rayner, James ‘Jimmy’ Coulson, Liam Wordsworth, Adrian Blatherwick and Coach Matthew Fawcett have been involved from the very inception of the Hull Wasps basketball club.  However taking a trip down memory lane is not something that these guys are interested in at the moment.

“If we looked back over our Wasps years I would count them as failed seasons. We have to always look towards the next season.” John Kelsey said.

With new signings and a new attitude the Wasps originals are excited about the future of the team. Coach Fawcett added, “All these new faces coming in, this is what Hull basketball now looks like and it is a very exciting time for the city. We have a team on the brink of doing something special.”

With the season starting in September and preparation well underway you can expect to see a blend of familiar faces and exciting new recruits working together on the court for the Wasps with the focus solely on winning.
