The B. Braun Sheffield Sharks are pleased to announce that their sixth signing of the close season is Oscar Baldwin.

The 22 year old British forward is local to Sheffield coming from Grindleford in Hope Valley and is entering his second season with the Sharks.

Baldwin began his basketball career at the Juniors Sharks U18s and then spent two seasons playing for Hallam University in the BUCS basketball league under former Sharks assistant Ariel Parrucci.

Sharks Head Coach Atiba Lyons is happy about the signing,

‘It’s great to have Oscar back on board. This past season was a huge step in his development, and we will look to continue to nurture and grow that going into year 2. With his size, athleticism, and ability to knock down the outside shot, he has all the tools it takes to become a productive player in this league.’

Oscar Baldwin joins Mike Tuck, Jordan Ratinho, Marcus Delpeche, Aaron Anderson and Joe Jr Mvuezolo as the Sharks continue to build their roster for the 2021-22 BBL season.
