Caledonia Pride have confirmed that six home-bred players have committed to Scotland’s only female professional basketball team for this season.

All six players have already gained Women’s British Basketball League (WBBL) with Pride last season.

Sharp-shooting Sarah Thomson will be joined by Beth Mackie, Kirsten Simpson, Hannah Peacock, Hilary Wood and Hannah Robb.

Thomson is pleased to have a core of Scots players returning to the programme.

She said: “I am super excited for the season to get started again, especially with how much we progressed in our first season in the WBBL.

“Each game at home is amazing for myself and the other home grown players.

“We have a really good chance to grow the game here and we can’t wait to get started in October.”

Pride will be in home-court action at their season opener on Saturday, October 7 when they take on defending champions, Nottingham Wildcats.
