Worcester Wolves’ head coach Paul James is delighted to announce another new face to the ‘Wolf Pack’ for the forthcoming 2016-17 BBL campaign.
Jermel Kennedy joins the Wolves from Spanish team CB Clavijo Logrono, where he averaged 5.6 points and 3.1 rebounds per game last season in LEB Gold.
Coach James said, “The club has worked very hard to secure the services of Jermel, because we believe that he has all the qualities that will contribute to making us a very good team this season.
“Jermel will contribute in many different ways, giving us some great options as I believe his all-around game is perfectly suited to the BBL. I’m sure he is going to have a great impact on the team and the league.”
He brings experience from 2013-2014 when he played for TV 1862 Langen (Germany-ProB) and averaged 16.5 points and 7.2 boards per game. A year later, Kennedy stepped out for AB Contern (Luxembourg- Total League) before signing with Finish team Porvoon Tarmo (Finland-1st Division) and racked up 18 points and 9.3 rebounds per game.
The forward then moved to Club Atletico Marne Montevideo (Uruguay-Metropolitan), where he averaged 17 points and 7.7 rebounds per game.
Meanwhile Wolves’ Managing Director, Mick Donovan added, “I am sure that the Wolves fans will be excited to see Jermel join the club and hopefully show our ambition once again.
“He is certainly a very explosive player, who has made a positive impact wherever he has gone.”
Kennedy holds a British passport and attended NCAA2 Lander University, who play in the PeachBelt Conference.
