  • 5ft 3"(Guard)

    Lynne joined the Silverbacks in September 2014. Having spent several years playing as a point guard at top flight basketball in the WNBA, she decided to return to the UK to continue her studies reading Environmental Science and more recently has further explored the field of Acoustics. She's the fearless 'Warrior' on the court, often seen hustling near the floor but also leads the stats for rebounding. A loyal team mate committed to the club, the Warrior is proud to wear the #12 bearing the mighty Silverback on her chest. She gives it her all in every game. Off the court 'Lynne the Gin' is the driving force of the Social Committee (master baker of the club) and Ladies Team Secretary. She is a qualified Basketball England Level 2 table official and often assists Jack with coaching at Babybacks. With two young boys  Lynne is keen to champion basketball and to bring it to those in the local community who may not usually get the opportunity to play. She will soon be embarking on a course to obtain her coaching qualifications in order to progress with this. Her commitment & hard work earned her the Chairman's award for 2014/2015
