with the team in August.
Dip Donaldson who is the owner and of the Coventry based
basketball club says:
"I am anticipating a successful season, and am doing
all I can in order for that to come about, by combining a very strong side. Pierre will be
aiding to our success with their contributions and that will help in our campaign to
finish back at the top of the league again this year.
"I am really excited about the potential the Crusaders
team has for the 1999-2000 season. It will be a great show all the way!"
