GREEN IS GO FOR EAGLES
“Tajh has a motor on him and he never stops playing or competing — no matter what the circumstances.
“That’s just one of the many reasons why I’m looking forward to seeing him compete in an Eagles jersey this season — rather than for a rival club.”
“I honestly think that Tajh has just scratched the surface as a basketball player and I think he can continue to get better and continue to develop,” added Stuetel.
“It will become apparent this season just how hard he works for his team.
“It’s fantastic to get Tajh up to the Vertu Motors Arena ahead of what promises to be an extremely exciting domestic season and ENBL campaign.
“I’m so happy that we’ve completed another significant signing and I can’t wait for our fans to see this team come together.”
The Eagles remain determined to reprise the club’s glory days and Great Britain head coach Marc Steutel is on a mission to match capacity crowds with on-court success.
And Newcastle fought off serious competition for the signature of breakout star Green with a clutch of British rivals on the trail of the former Giant.
At NCAA Division Two Benedict College, the sports management major averaged 14 points and seven boards.
Green was named MVP of the HBCU All-Star game and picked up the SIAC Player of the Year award.
That form was enough to earn a first professional contract with Manchester and secure the opportunity to learn his trade alongside Eagles legend Fletcher.
Fixtures for the forthcoming British Basketball League tip-offs are expected to land in the next couple of weeks and season tickets for the new campaign are still available from the Newcastle Eagles Box Office.
