Swalve returns!


Hemel Storm are pleased to announce that fan-favourite, sharp-shooting American guard Seth Swalve will rejoin the club for the 2023/24 season.

The Alabama-born star enjoyed a successful first year for Storm, averaging 12.4 points per game and was an instrumental part in the unprecedented 41-0 season, playing a key role all over the court and constantly sacrificing his own glory for the good of the team.

A good example of Swalve’s importance to the squad was seen at the end of season awards, when he picked up the players’ player award, showing in his very first year he had become a highly valued, respected member of the team.

Swalve first became familiar to Storm in the annual pre-season friendly against the USA Select touring party of 20/21, when he remarkably made 32 points, shooting 78% from the field to impress the locals in their very own StormDome, before the club acted on what they saw to recruit him a season later for the 22/23 campaign. Previously, Swalve had impressed at his home-town college in the States in NCAA D2, starring for Alabama-Huntsville.

Fans and coaches alike can look forward to Seth’s shooting ability, selfless plays and on-court vision for the year ahead and Swalve will be keen to continue last year’s good work, carrying on from where he left off.

This announcement was made on the "Let's Go Storm" Podcast. Check out what Seth has to say about his return via youtube here or spotify here.
