Biography

Having captained Zimbabwe in his younger years, Creon Raftopoulos moved to the UK in 2001 to trial for Teesside Mohawks. Raftopoulos sustained an injury and moved into coaching as he joined the Middlesbrough Basketball Academy Coaching staff. After a number of years coaching he was given the shot as the rookie to coaching the Guildford Heat in 2010. The Guildford Heat evolved into the Surrey Heat and Raftopoulos guided the side to a top four finish. When Scorchers formed in 2015 there was only one man right to lead the franchise, and Raftopoulos has taken the side from strength to strength every season at Surrey Sports Park.
