Matt Bissonnette Returns

Matt Bissonnette has signed on the dotted line and will be returning to the Hull Pirates for the 2020/21 season.

Known favourably amongst fans as The Bizz, the 6ft4 Canadian joined the Pirates midway through the previous season playing a total of 17 games collecting an impressive 35 points.

Matt explained his reasons for  coming back aboard: “It was an easy choice to come back. I really enjoyed my short time in Hull and i’m looking forward to playing a full year for the Pirates! The great Pirates fans made this decision very easy. I can’t wait for next season! 

Player Coach Jason Hewitt also spoke about why he decided to re-sign Matt: “Really happy to have Bizz returning to us, he was really good for us down the stretch and was hitting great stride before the premature end of the year. He’s a great guy in the room fitted in well with our group and offers great experience and accountability to our team. With a long summer ahead giving everyone a good amount of rest and time to get in shape for the coming season I think we will see an even better version of Bizz this  year!”
