Rogers signs one-year extension

Josh Rogers has signed a new one-year deal to stay with the Bristol Flyers.

The Bristol-born forward has committed to a third year with his hometown club and has been named club captain ahead of the 2021/22 season.

Speaking on his new contract, Rogers said: “I’m really happy to be back. The Flyers are my boyhood club, so to be named club captain is amazing.

"Dan (Edozie) was a great leader when I first came in, so I want to pick up where he left off, lead by example and bring the group together.

"I felt my role on the team increased a lot last year, so it’s just about continuing to build on that this season. I really like how this new group is coming together, so I’m excited to get started.

"It was very strange playing in empty arenas last season and we can’t wait to play in front of the fans once again."

 

Rogers came through the ranks at the Flyers and graduated from the SGS Basketball Academy, making his senior debut in September 2011 at the age of 17 in NBL Division One.

He went on to sign a full athletic scholarship with Carson-Newman in NCAA Division two, making 110 appearances during his collegiate career, posting an average of 9.4 points and 6.8 rebounds in his senior year.

Rogers signed his first professional contract with Hapoel Beer Sheva in Isreal’s second tier, where he played a single season before a move to back to the BBL came in 2018.

He made 21 appearances for the London City Royals in 2019, playing a key role in their BBL Trophy-winning squad.

"Josh really stepped up last season with his on-court performances and leadership qualities under difficult circumstances,” said Flyers Head Coach Andreas Kapoulas.

“He's someone that truly understands our programme having been through our pathway and knows full well what it means to wear the Flyers uniform.

"We are thrilled to have him on board for the upcoming season and announce him as club captain.”
