BILLY Singleton has bolstered his struggling squad with the signing of former Jets favourite James Hamilton.
The player/coach swooped for the veteran forward ahead of the February transfer deadline and immediately put him straight into the side that took on Scottish Rocks at the weekend.
Hamilton begins his third spell with Jets having previously played a pivotal role in a number of triumphs including the famous 'Jet-wash' of 2001 and Singleton believes he can add some much needed depth and quality to his roster.
He said: 'James's pedigree speaks for itself - he is 6ft 9in and can play in four positions on the floor. We're delighted to have him and he brings a wealth of experience and knowledge to our team.'
The 35-year-old endured an injury plagued campaign at London Towers last season before taking a break from the basketball courts.
He is now hoping he can recapture some of his old form to help Jets secure that all-important playoff berth.
Meanwhile Jets' mini resurgence came crashing to an end on Sunday after a heavy defeat at joint BBL Championship leaders Scottish Rocks.
Billy Singleton's men had been hoping to build on last week's double triumph over Sheffield Sharks and Brighton Bears, but despite a bright start they slumped to an 86-60 defeat.
Jets have now lost all three of their encounters with the Rocks this season and although they scored the first bucket of the match they found themselves 22-19 down at the end of the first period.
The home side have been in impressive form throughout the season and they took a stranglehold on the match midway through the second period with an 8-2 run which gave them an 45-32 interval lead.
Jets continued to battle in an attempt to reduce the arrears but the points gap continued to rise and after closing out the third period 61-45 ahead, Scottish Rocks clinched a comfortable victory with Julius Joseph stretching their lead in the final stanza.
Phil Gilbert top scored for Jets notching 15 points, with Damon Bailey scoring 13 and Shawn Myers 11.
Next up Jets travel to Birmingham Bullets on Saturday before taking on Milton Keynes Lions at the Northgate Arena on Sunday. Tip off 5.30pm.
