Caledonia Gladiators can officially confirm the latest new signing to join the club, hometown hero Hannah Robb from Arbroath, who last suited up for Leicester Riders for three seasons. The 5’6″ guard previously spent three years at the then-Caledonia Pride to begin her professional career. This came following a youth career spent with Tayside Musketeers (the same side as Gareth Murray), also representing Scotland and GB at all levels.
In her final season north of the Border with Pride (19/20), Robb put up 13.5 points, 4.8 rebounds and 3.7 assists a night. Now, in her most recent campaign with Krumesh Patel’s Riders, she had 11.2 PPG, 3.8 RPG and 2.6 APG, as one of the squad’s top contributors and biggest shooting threats.
She has always been known as an efficient shooter, last year hitting 36.5% of her shots beyond the arc, the eighth highest ranking league-wide, making it her best shooting season in a Riders jersey.
In the summer, the Scot joined fellow Gladiator Erin McGarrachan in Chema Bucheta’s final 12-player Great Britain squad at EuroBasket, having been involved with GB and Scotland squads at all levels in the past – cementing her name as one of the best young guards in the country.
In 2022, Robb was a part of the 3×3 contingent at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, representing Scotland alongside Erin McGarrachan, Kennedy Leonard, and Sian Phillips. There, the squad finished a respectable fifth place against solid competition from around the world.
On signing with the club, Hannah said: “I’m really excited to be coming home to Scotland and joining the Caledonia Gladiators. Having the opportunity to play in Europe and in our own arena is huge for the club and for Scottish basketball and I can’t wait to be part of it! I’m eager to get to work and achieve big things with the team this season!”
