Our very own James Beckom moves onto pastures new in the coming days as he plots his next move in his basketball career by moving to Rome in Italy with ASD Lido Di Roma Basket Academy. James was head hunted by clubs throughout Europe after his outstanding performances in the U16 European Championships last August.
James has been an outstanding Demon since he first put on the Demons jersey at 6 years of age and this culminated with James winning the very prestigious John O’Brien Memorial Juvenile award at last seasons awards night. James is everything we want in a true Demon, loyal, tough defensively, a huge work ethic on both ends of the floor. An outstanding team mate and best of all a good guy, who no matter what the result, knows he has given it his all for every minute he wears the jersey.
James will be sorely missed by us all in Demons, but on behalf of the club, we wish James all the best with his Italian adventure. I am sure he will remain in contact!
There will always be a place in Demons for ‘Becks’.
All the best James…..we will meet again and we know you will give it your best shot (as always)!
