One of the most experienced British players still active in the game today, Haslam made his mark on the GB programme in impressive fashion in 2006 and 2007 when the team was gaining promotion from the B to the A Division of European basketball.

Originally from Southport in Lancashire, the 6’10” forward/centre played for four seasons at the University of Wyoming before returning to his homeland with the Birmingham Bullets in 1997.

His performances in that rookie year were enough to earn Haslam a contract in the highly-regarded Greek league with Apollon Patras, the start of an eight-year career on the continent which saw him feature for Pepinster (1999-2002) and Liege (2002-03) in Belgium and Weissenfers in Germany before moving to Italy.

Haslam played for Messina, Livorno and Teramo over the next three seasons before the summer of 2006 saw him called up to GB duty for the first time. Having been capped already, 42 times by England, it was no surprise that Haslam proved invaluable to that squad, both in 2006 and 2007 when GB clinched their place in the A Division.

By that stage, Haslam had returned to play for GB assistant coach Tony Garbelotto, first for London United and then, when his coach moved to the north-west, for the Everton Tigers for whom Haslam was still playing in 2009-10.

Chris Finch says: “Another guy who was an invaluable and key player for this programme in its first couple of years. He is extremely smart, experienced and versatile and he did a great job of accepting his roles as they changed over the couple of seasons.”
