Greg Streete awarded testimonial game

Bristol Flyers can confirm Greg Streete will be awarded with a testimonial game in celebration of his outstanding contribution to the club.

After taking a break from the game, the former Flyers captain has confirmed his retirement from professional basketball, with a celebration of his playing career to take place at the SGS College Arena on Saturday, September 15th (6pm tip-off).

Streete has given the club over a decade of dedicated and exceptional service, after coming through the academy system at SGS College, having also represented England and Great Britain at junior level.

He took on the role of first team captain in 2009 and led Bristol Flyers to the NBL National Cup in 2010 and the Division One title in 2011.

The 30-year-old made 102 appearances during his three years in the BBL, becoming the club's all-time leading scorer with 1,009 career points.

"There are simply no words to describe Greg’s contribution to basketball in Bristol,” said Flyers head coach Andreas Kapoulas.

"He has shown exceptional loyalty to the Flyers for more than a decade and stands for everything that is good about this organisation.

"Everybody around the club knows how much the Flyers mean to him and we’re delighted to be able to help celebrate the career of an outstanding player, who’s given so much over the years.

"We're excited at the prospect of bringing together some of Greg’s former team-mates as well as some of the best players that he’s played against during his professional career.

"The Testimonial game will be a very special moment for him and his family and we hope it will also be a memorable day of celebration for the Flyers Family too."

Streete will take the court for one last time on September 15th, with full squads and ticket information to be announced soon.
