Shaxon returns to Rebels after year in Italy

August 23, 2021

Essex Rebels are delighted to welcome back former club captain Ellie Shaxon. 

Shaxon signed for the Rebels for the 2019/20 season where she helped guide the team to an improved 8th place finish before signing to play in Italy for the 2020/21 season, where she has helped her team to one of their best ever finishes and its first ever finals appearance along with a club promotion to the Italian first division.  Shaxon also has experience of playing in the German Bundesliga. Prior to that Shaxon was a key player in the Essex side that won the WNBL Division 1 and National Cup.

Tom Sadler, Head of Basketball Performance said “Ellie returns to the Rebels for her 2nd season, it is great to have her back after a year away.  Ellie has a key role to play this season in supporting our front court players”.
