Matthew Bryan-Amaning departs Scorchers

We can confirm Matthew Bryan-Amaning has left the Surrey Scorchers, as he heads to Zamalek in the BAL (Basketball Africa League), sponsored and organised by the NBA.

MBA featured in five games for the Scorchers, averaging an impressive 17 points, 7.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists.

Matt would like to thank the fans for their support during his time with the team.

He said: “I want to firstly thank the whole Scorchers organisation.

“It is by far one of the most professional clubs I’ve been a part of.

“The fans and community in Surrey are amazing – the support they show the team and myself during my time here was incredible.

“I really enjoyed my time and being part of the team, and I’m sorry I couldn’t help in the month I was here.

“Creon as a coach is a really good guy who understands basketball, but does so much more for that franchise.

“If things can go the right way I definitely can see myself returning to play for him again in a Scorchers jersey in the near future.”

Regarding his new move, he added: “My next step is the new Basketball Africa League, sponsored and organised by the NBA.

“I got the opportunity through Luol Deng, the league ambassador, and Dzaflo Larkai, both former Brixton Topcats players and obviously two big time professionals.

“The opportunity was one I couldn’t turn down as its in the inaugural season and always good to get in at the beginning.

“I will join the team from Egypt called Zamalek and can’t wait to play in my fathers home nation.”

Everybody at the Surrey Scorchers would like to thank Matt for this efforts and professionalism during his time with the team, and wish him the very best of luck in his exciting new venture.

Once a Scorcher, always a Scorcher.
