Glasgow Rocks confirm signing of Greg Richards

Rocks Sign Greg Richards from the Open Trials that were held in August…


The Glasgow Rocks open trials was bigger than ever this year with over 22 young men coming to the Kelvin Hall for Rocks Coach Sterling Davis to put them through a vigorous training session in an effort to un-earth the best talent available to him. Sterling has always been supportive of the open trials, and younger players.

“Open try-outs are a great opportunity for any young basketball players looking to breakthrough to a professional level. This year we saw a great turn-out of young talent, so much so that we have decided to take some of them in to the Rocks for this upcoming season”.

The first product of the open trials this year was British born Greg Richards who impressed Sterling from the outset. The 29 year old has spent the last 5 years playing for the Huntington Hawks in England where he averaged a near 20 points per season. Before settling in Huntington, Greg spent 2 years in Turkey where he competed in the European Championship, as well as 2 years in the states playing High School Basketball.

Coach Davis was enthusiastic about the finding of Richards.

“We found Greg in our open trials and saw a natural talent in him to play the game. He has got that very soft left-handed touch from the perimeter and a good build body-wise.”
