Bristol Flyers Unveil New U.S. Signing

Bristol Flyers have signed American guard Bree Perine in time for this Friday's BBL Cup semi-final.

The 26 year-old joins the Bristol BBL team out of NCAA Division One team Wisconsin Green Bay, where he averaged 11.2 points, 2.8 assists and 2.3 rebounds while shooting 33% from behind the arc.

Flyers Coach Kapoulas said; “It is great to welcome a player of Bree's quality ahead of our BBL Cup semi-finals this Friday, against Glasgow. Dealing with the loss of Doug Herring through injury has been tough on the team. The last couple of weeks all our players have stepped up their game to cover Doug's absence and that has been evident in our recent performances over Worcester and Newcastle, as well as our crucial home win over Manchester last Saturday."

Perine, who is represented by AGSS Basketball, played last season in the Israel National League where he was the third leading scorer, averaging 19.4 points, 3.1 rebounds and 2.5 assists in 35 minutes per game.  Previous to this he played in the Netherlands (averaging 15.8 points) with his former Green Bay teammate and current Newcastle Eagles player Rahmon Fletcher.

On joining the Flyers Perine said; “I can’t wait to get playing and meet up with the rest of the team. I’ve been talking to Rahmon to do a bit of background on the BBL and feel confident I can do what is needed for Coach Kapoulas. It would be great if we end up playing Rahmon and Newcastle in the BBL Cup Final – we just have to make sure we do the business first against Glasgow this weekend!”

Coach Kapoulas added; “Bree brings more depth and versatility to our team. He is a very talented player with valuable experience from his spells in Israel, Netherlands and Hungary. His size and height make him really tough to guard and I think he will fit very well to the Flyers family and what we want to achieve.

“We are really sad to let Doug Herring go but with his knee injury taking him out for the rest of the season we have no choice. It is crucial in this, our first BBL season, that we perform to the best of our ability. I thank Doug for the huge impact he has had on the Flyers and we will be following his rehabilitation closely and wish him all the very best.”

Come and see Bree Perine in his first game in action for the Flyers in the BBL Cup semi-final against Glasgow Rocks at SGS WISE Arena this Friday, December 12th, tip-off 7:30pm - click here to buy tickets.
