PRESTON, England — Myerscough Basketball is excited to announce that it has formed a player-pathway link with BasketballPaisley, which Academy director and head coach Neal Hopkins confirmed on Friday.

“This is a great opportunity to build on the success and dedication that Paisley have in developing their players,” said Hopkins. “We are excited to help provide an option for those who are looking to move into an Academy and importantly build a relationship with the staff at Paisley and Myerscough.”

Myerscough and BasketballPasiley will work together to develop opportunities available for current juniors at the Paisley club looking to pursue basketball at the Academy level. Myerscough will help facilitate and advise players and parents with regards to playing and academic opportunities.

“This partnership with Myerscough is a great addition to our basketball pathway,” said BasketballPaisley director of basketball Chris Cleary. “It will allow players to experience academy basketball and it will also provide them with a stepping stone to their future prospects. This pathway will promote opportunities available and will provide players throughout the club with short and long term progression goals.”

BasketballPaisley has seen the success of players coming to the Preston-based Academy, including Callan Low, Mikey Irvine and Jack Thomson. All have utilised Myerscough’s platform and benefited from the outcomes post graduation.
