Mayindombe returns for 2019/20 season

Panos Mayindombe has extended his stay with Bristol Flyers for the 2019/20 season.

The 31-year-old combo guard enters his third season with the club, after joining from Durham Wildcats in August 2017.

Mayindombe becomes the sixth player to commit to Andreas Kapoulas’ squad for the 2019/20 campaign, after the announcements of Lewis Champion, Fred Thomas, Daniel Edozie, Marcus Delpeche and Chris Taylor.

Speaking on his decision to return to the club, Mayindombe said: It was very simple decision, I didn’t even need to think about it.”

"It's the first time in my professional career that I have stayed with a club for longer than two years and I’ve become very settled in Bristol. I love the city, the culture, the people and the Flyers family.

"Team chemistry is so important, the fact that we’re keeping that core group of players will ensure we start on the right foot."

Mayindombe played for the Panathinaikos Academy as a child, before signing his first professional contract with the club at the age of 19.

He went on to play six years in the Greek A2 Basket League and subsequently moved to the BBL in 2014.

In his first year in Durham, Mayindombe posted 7.9 points per game before returning to the Greek second tier for a further season.

"Panos is a great addition to the team,” added Coach Kapoulas.

"He's a great guy to be around who brings energy and personality to everything we do.

“He came back from injury at the start of last season and those first couple of months were difficult for him, but we really started to see him playing some great basketball as the season went on, especially in the quadruple overtime game against Glasgow.

"He plays the game with heart and passion and he'll do anything for the team to be successful.”
