London Lions captain Joe Ikhinmwin makes it six straight seasons after the club confirms his return once more ahead of the new season.

Fan favourite Ikhinmwin joined the Lions in 2013 and has been an ever present since and will line up once again at the Copper Box Arena.

This past season the London native led the Lions to second place in the League and a place in the Playoff Finals at the O2 Arena.

Joe averaged just under seven points a game on 50 per cent shooting from the floor and 35% from the three point line.

“It’s a great honour to be returning to the Lions for my sixth season with the club,” Ikhinmwin told the club website.

“We did well last season despite setbacks along the way, but we fell one short on our aims, this year we will do whatever it takes to get over the line and I can’t wait to get started.”

More signings expected.
