HEAD COACH

Creon Raftopolous - Having led up the Scorchers franchise under it’s previous names Guildford Heat and Surrey Heat, 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.

BOX SCORE



ONE TO WATCH

#15 Tayo Ogedengbe - Scorchers’ longest-serving player was the franchise’s first-ever signing in 2015 and remains a talisman on and off the court. The Surrey captain played in all 33 games for the Scorchers last season, posting an average of 16.9, 4.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game.


WHAT THEY SAY

"It's a quick turnaround - Surrey is a very difficult place to play, so we need to be mentally prepared."

Chris Taylor
