FRESH off con­sec­u­tive top three fin­ishes in the State Bas­ket­ball League MVP race, Cock­burn Cougars stal­wart Gavin Field has re­signed with the club for the next two years.

The Cougars life mem­ber, who fin­ished third in vot­ing for the league’s high­est hon­our, has com­mit­ted to the club un­til the end of the 2021 sea­son.

Over the past two years, the bean­pole af­fec­tion­ately nick­named ‘Bob’ has av­er­aged more than 24 points per game, eight re­bounds, over 40 per cent from the three-point line and was run­ner-up in the 2018 MVP count.

Cock­burn Bas­ket­ball As­so­ci­a­tion gen­eral man­ager Ty­rone Th­waites said Field’s re-sign­ing was sym­bolic of what the ‘Cougar Fam­ily’ stood for.

“We couldn’t be prouder of Gav’s ser­vice to our proud fam­ily, the ex­am­ple he sets,” he said.
