Pirates Welcome Taylor Young to The Ship


The Pirates are excited to announce that Taylor Young will be joining our Platypus Networks Men's NBL1 Team for the 2022 season.


Taylor is an American 190 cm combo guard. He last played QBL in Australia in 2019 where he averaged 21 ppg 6 assists and 2 steals. He has been waiting patiently during COVID to make his return to Australia and we are very happy that we can now welcome him to the Piratecrew.


"From the talks I had with coach Edwards, the style he wants to play and the faith he has in my basketball ability, I felt this was the best situation for me to excel both on and off the court. I can’t wait to start competing with the roster he has put together. I appreciate everyone involved in having me this season." - Young


We look forward to watching Taylor take to the court very soon. Welcome to The Ship Taylor!
