Coventry Tornadoes’ players are reeling following the notice issued to them by owner Paul Adams informing them that he has quit the Warwickshire Basketball League with immediate effect!
“Tall Paul” (pictured) sent out the notice earlier this week saying that he could not continue to run the side and cited lack of commitment, payment issues and shortage of players.
He said how sorry he was to have come to this decision and would be happy to support players if any of them wished to transfer to other clubs. This posed a problem to The Executive Committee for the deadline for transfers and registration passed last week but it was decided at on Wednesday that any players wishing to move to another club may receive special dispensation and should contact Warwickshire Basketball for approval. Paul is also looking to bounce back next season stronger and better equipped
THE BEAR FACTS understands that the remainder of Tornadoes’ operation will continue as normal…………….Under league rule 3g Tornadoes’ results to date have been deleted.
