The Wasps have continued recruiting big names this summer by signing Spanish big man Manuel Medina Guzman. Manuel will be joining the club in mid-September and after numerous conversations with Coach Fawcett the talented big man has opted to join the Wasps for the upcoming season.

Manuel has a very rich basketball background and has played all over Europe, two seasons ago Manu played in Poland and last season played in the Spanish EBA for Club Andujar,  an extremely high standard and thought of as one of the premier professional leagues in Spain.

Coach Fawcett commented on the clubs latest addition. “The club have worked very hard to bring in excellent players this summer and Manuel fits that description. He is a versatile big man with a great touch inside and clear desire to win. He is very passionate about what he does and I think he will make a big impact for the club this season.”

Guzman also commented on his new club: “I am very excited; it’s a new team, a new league and a new challenge. I see how focused the players are and I am excited to be a part of it.”

Manuel should hopefully be with the team in time for their first national league game of the season against Childwall.
