Fred Thomas heads home to continue rehabilitation

Fred Thomas has returned home to continue his injury rehabilitation.

The American forward sustained a season-ending wrist injury during the 2019 BBL Cup Final, and following successful surgery, has now flown home to continue his road to recovery alongside his friends and family.

Joining the Flyers from Norwegian top-flight outfit Kongsberg Miners in July 2018, Thomas led his former club to the 2017/18 BNLO Championship, whilst also being named the league’s Defensive Player of the Year.

He quickly became a highly-regarded figure at the WISE Campus and went on to receive the club’s 2018/19 Most Valuable Player award.

Thomas made 21 appearances for the Flyers this season and played a crucial role in helping the club reach its first BBL Cup Final, leading the team with 19 points per game during the Cup campaign.

Flyers Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas said: “Fred has been a great person to have in our programme.

"He certainly made an impact since joining us last year and has become a popular member of the squad, both with his team-mates, staff, volunteers and fans.

"He has flown home today to be with his family and we will be working closely with him in the coming months to ensure the best rehabilitation process possible.”
