I’m very excited to arrive in Scotland and am looking forward to playing for Bart and for Pride. This is an amazing opportunity to continue my education and playing career that I plan to take full advantage of!Brooke Bailey
Pride Head Coach Bart Sengers spoke on his recent acquisition,
Adding Brooke to this team is great. We needed more power at the point guard position and Brooke gives us that. I expect her to easily move to the 2 position as well, so she gives us some flexibility in the back court and scoring power on top of that. We are excited to figure out how we can fit all our players together into an effective team during the next few weeksBart Sengers, Head Coach Caledonia Pride
Pride open their WBBL season up with an away trip to Essex Rebels in just under two weeks.
