LIMERICK Celtics have completed the signing of former St Francis University guard Andre Wolford for the upcoming 2021 – 2022 Men’s National League season.

Andre played his college basketball for St Francis University (PA) and was one of the nations top three point shooters.

Announcing the move, Andre has said that he’s looking forward to the new challenge.

I’m excited to announce I will be continuing my pro career playing in Ireland this upcoming season! The game was taken away from me due to covid last year and I won’t lie, it has been a tough journey since then. Having something you love taken away from you really puts things into perspective. It makes you realize to never take any opportunity for granted
