GB Star set for Germany

Jackman will be hoping to play here a few times over the years
Orlan Jackman, who has recently been called up to the Team GB squad will be departing Britain for Germany next season.

Jackman who played for the London Lions last season in the BBL will be moving to NOMA Iserlohn Kangaroos.

The forward was called up by Joe Prunty for the GB squad and could feature in the friendly clash with Puerto Rico at the Copper Box.

Ironically, Jackman's former club London Lions will play at the venue next season as they move into their new home as part of the Olympic Legacy.

Jackman scored on average 16 points for the London side and also averaged 7.5 rebounds per game.

He will be hoping the move will secure a place in the GB squad in future years, and will join Myles Hesson as a GB player in Germany.
