Starlites announced they will be resigning US import players Bobby Ahearn and Travis McConico ahead of the new season which begins on October 24.
Former Binghamton forward Ahearn from Massachusetts, who joined Starlites last January from Swords Thunder in Ireland, seems to have impressed despite the season having been cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic. According to Ahearn’s agents, Starting Five Agency, the 6’6 player was happy to come back to Malta after the trust shown by Starlites.
Similarly, former Charleston Buccaneers and Jacksonville Giants forward McConico from Florida had only played one game before the forced ending of the season but is looking forward to continuing where he left off at his first overseas club since finishing his NCAA career in Charleston in 2019.
Starlites had been in pole position before the season ended with 16 points after nine games.
