It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Dr Steve Mansfield, the man who was at the helm of the rebirth of the Manchester Giants in 2012.

Steve was an integral part of the team who had the vision to bring back the Giants to the top flight of British Basketball and without his efforts there wouldn’t have been a ‘second coming’.

Steve had battled with cancer for the past nine months, passing away on Tuesday, March 22, 2016. He will be sadly missed by everyone at the Manchester Giants and we send our love, support and gratitude to his family and wife Madeline at this difficult time.

Watch Steve in action
