The disastrous start to the season has forced the Board’s hand at Tenerife Rural, where three summer signings have now been shown the door and replacements brought in.
Roe in to strengthen the side 29.11.2009
- The trio of new arrivals include veteran Lou Roe, who has one of the most chequered careers in Spanish basketball. Roe, now 37, said during his inaugural press conference that “his legs were much younger than his passport age” and he was convinced he would make a great contribution to the club’s revival.
With almost 300 top flight games under his belt in Spain, Roe is one of the most experienced and most highly respected figures in the game here and has no qualms about dropping down in category to help the Canarian outfit. “I am not here for the money, I think the move is good for me and for the club. I don’t believe this is my last year in the game and in any case I would like to end my career in Spain” added Roe. Tenerife’s two other signings are Dave Fergerson and Gustavo Ayón.
