We are happy to announce that Lloyd McVeigh will be joining the North Gold Coast Seahawks for the 2022 NBL1 North campaign.
With big brother Jack on the way, the younger McVeigh is an exceptionally exciting prospect who could very easily follow in his older brother’s basketball footsteps.
McVeigh had his first taste of NBL1 action last season as a 17-year-old and didn’t disappoint, being a huge spark off the bench averaging 5ppg at 49%, 3rpg in just over 10 minutes per outing, 2022 may just be a breakout year for the confident youngster.
Having the opportunity to play alongside his brother was a driving factor for the younger McVeigh to make the jump.
“Jack and I are the best of friends, and we spend as much time together as we can and one of the things we have always wanted to do is be on the same team, so I’m really excited we are going to be able to do this,” said McVeigh.
“I’m ready to make a huge impact this year, and under Luke McGuire’s guidance, I believe I can really help our team to achieve our overall goal of winning a championship”
“I’m excited to get to the pre-season and get around the group as much as possible”
Head Coach for the Seahawks NBL1 team, Luke McGuire, is happy to have the McVeigh family on board.
“Lloyd has a lot of basketball qualities that Jack possesses, so it will be interesting to see the pair of them battle it out at practices,” said McGuire.
“Lloyd is an exciting prospect, with genuine size on the wing, as well as the ability to sniff out a bucket. I think we might see a breakout year from him,” said McGuire.
“I’m not really sure I was ready for one McVeigh let alone two, but I know our team will be much better for it” McGuire said jokingly.
