The Plymouth City Patriots have confirmed their first signing of the summer as they’ve announced the return of Club Captain and Albanian international Elvisi Dusha for the forthcoming season.
Dusha has signed up for his third season with the Patriots after averaging over 10 points and six assists per game last year – the latter being good enough for the third-best tally in the British Basketball League.
A veteran of the League, some of last season’s performances were Dusha’s best in his career as he was named Molten Player of the Month for November and led a changing Patriots side with his experience throughout the season.
Entering his 11th season in the League, Dusha discussed his excitement at returning to the Pavillions:
“I can’t wait for season three with the club! The fans here are the best in the league and feel like family to me. Time to put on a show!
Patriots Head Coach Paul James added:
“Elvisi is our captain and has led us from the Patriots very beginning. He has always been a fantastic facilitator, and last season showed he can also be a scorer when we need him to. We’re very happy to have him back.”
