Newman returns!


Sam Newman will return to Hemel Storm for the 2021-2022 National Basketball League Division One season.

After completing his finance degree at the University of Essex, the 2019 Storm Trooper’s Player of the Season is coming back and we know how pleased the Storm faithful will be by this news.

Newman, heading into his 5th season in Division One, has been a key piece to all Division One sides he has been apart of. His maturity, character, playmaking and scoring ability was on full display for the Essex Rebels last season and established himself as a leading guard in the National Basketball League. The 2019/2020 campaign was Newman’s finest season to date, posting averages of 15.9 points, 7.4 rebounds, 4.7 assists and 2.2 assists.

Newman is back in the orange and black – for hopefully, many years to come.
