Bristol Flyers v Surrey Scorchers
BBL Championship
Friday, February 1st, 7.30pm
SGS College Arena
SOLD OUT
Bristol Flyers look to return to winning ways when they host Surrey Scorchers at the SGS College Arena (7.30pm).

Everything you need to know on Friday night’s opponents can be found below.

SURREY SCORCHERS

It’s been a rough start to the season for Scorchers fans, with just three wins in 17 games. After winning their opening game of 2019 against London City Royals, the Scorchers have been unable to capitalise and remain five wins adrift of a play-off position. 


HEAD COACH

creon raftopoulos

Having led up the Scorchers franchise under it’s previous names Guildford Heat and Surrey Heat, Creon Raftopolous achieved a top-four finish with the team in 2012/13 and reached the BBL Trophy final in 2011, before being dismissed ahead of a takeover which saw the club’s name changed to Surrey United. Reforming under the Scorchers name in 2015, Raftopolous was reinstated as head coach following the takeover from Surrey Sports Park.


ONE TO WATCH

QUINCY TAYLOR

Surrey Scorchers’ Quincy Taylor has led the way offensively this season. His offensive prowess has given opposing defences issues all year long. Taylor is the sixth leading scorer in the league and he currently averages 18.8 points and 5.3 assists per game.


LAST TIME OUT

Bristol Flyers were unable to complete a double winning weekend, going down 102-97 after five minutes of overtime.
