At London Thunder we work closely with all our young people, and we have reached some truly magical success stories. An  example of this is Rowell Graham who our head coach Steve Bucknall met whilst doing some school sessions.

Rowell was at the time in danger of being excluded from school. To avoid this Steve negotiated a move to another school (Forest Hill) and Rowell began training with the club.

Under the watchful eye of Steve Bucknall and the club Rowell went onto represent his country and now plays professionally in Europe.

  • Represented at England u18s in the 2011 UEFA European Basketball Championship in Varna, Bulgaria.
  • In 2012 represented Enagldn U18s Basketball Championship in  Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
  • 2013 represented at the u20s Great Britain team in Pitesti, Romania.
  • 2014 u20s Great Britain team in Heraklion and Rethymno, Greece.

Rowell has represented England Basketball and Great Britian Basketball at a international level and has played across Europe for teams such as Real Valladolid CB, CB Almansa and Loewen Erfurt.
