Worcester Wolves coach Paul James has admitted it will be a special occasion when he faces former club Guildford on Saturday.
James was abruptly fired last summer after leading the Heat to every major honour during their first four years in existence, before returning to the BBL with the Wolves three months ago.
“There will be some emotion there because of some great friendships developed with some of the supporters who will be at the game and some of the players too,” he said. “I think it might be more emotional for the supporters because of what they had in recent years.”
A win for the hosts would see them overtake Guildford in the race to catch Worthing for the eighth and final play-off spot. Yet James insists it won’t be a grudge match.
“They are a different club now, going in a different direction,” he declared.
“All my focus at the moment is on trying to develop and bring success to the Worcester Wolves moving forward.”
