Former Sheffield Sharks junior, Nathaniel Montgomery, is all set for a fifth year as a Shark.
The 5’10” guard enjoyed a breakout season as he became part of the four- man guard rotation during the 2021-22 campaign.
“I was very pleased with my progression especially in the latter half of last season,” said Nate. “Coach Lyons challenged me to work on my strength and fitness last summer and earn my playing time.
“I’m pleased to say it paid off, so here I am ready to go again and hungry for more.”
Coach Atiba Lyons was pleased with the progress as the young guard transitioned through the ranks into the team rotation.
“Like anyone looking to establish a career in any professional sport it takes time and commitment, and Nate has that in abundance,” he said.
“We all knew he can shoot the ball however the game is played at both ends of the floor and he showed great progression in all areas. I’m pleased for him and I’m happy to welcome him back into the fold.”
Nate joins teammates Rodney Glasgow Jr and Marcus Delpeche both having recently committed their own futures to the organisation.
“I’m really looking forward to this season and being part of something big here at the Sharks,” added Nate.
“We have a new arena on the horizon, and I get the feeling this is going to be a big year for the team, the organisation and for myself. I can’t wait to get going, it’s been a long summer.”
The Sharks take on the London Lions in the first match of the season Friday, 23rd September in Sheffield at 7:30pm LIVE on Sky Sports.
