The Wasps can officially announce the signing of 6ft 6" forward Lee Brown. The Wasps have been in long negotiations with Brown, who had a number of teams chasing him, but who nevertheless has decided to come and join the Wasps.
Coach Fawcett was very happy with the club's latest signing.
“Today we have signed a very exciting prospect. Lee will bring a lot to the table this season and has already impressed his teammates with his high flying displays in training.”
Lee has been with the squad for a couple of weeks but wanted to see if the club was going to be a good fit for him personally.
Brown commented on the news this morning, “It was an easy decision to come and play for the Wasps. This is an established club. They have been around for five years and have the stability and drive that other clubs do not have. I'm excited to play for the club and the fans and cannot wait to get going.”
Chairman Dave Bushnell added, “We have set ourselves goals for the upcoming 12 months. One is to establish ourselves as one of the premier places to play in the country. A player of Lee’s calibre signing with the club is a great signal that we are heading the right way.”
With just six weeks to go before the season, Lee will have plenty of time to get used to the team before putting on the prestigious Wasps jersey and taking the floor for the first game of the season!
