Dougall Baillie Associates is proud to sponsor Clifton Moore, one of the rising stars of UK basketball

It has always been a given at Dougall Baillie Associates that when we see talent, we go out of our way to encourage it to reach its full potential.

That is why we are proud to be sponsoring one of the rising sporting stars of his generation – the immensely talented Clifton Moore Jr, centre for the fantastic Caledonia Gladiators, the professional basketball club based in our own home town of East Kilbride.

The Gladiators are the only Scottish team in the British Basketball League – the top tier of the game in the UK – and 6ft 11in Clifton has already made a huge contribution to its stunning run of successes.

He and the team play at the Playsport Arena in East Kilbride, which has ambitious plans to build a new 6,000-seater arena when it outgrows the current, recently constructed, 1,500-seater. DBA also has a history with Playsport, where we were involved in the original construction of the golf course.

Clifton will be sponsored by us for the entire season – his own debut professional season – and will bring his impressive versatility as a centre to the team’s frontcourt.

The Pennsylvania native’s standout college career at Providence showcased his prowess on both ends of the court, making him a promising addition to the Gladiators’ roster for their British Basketball and European campaigns.

The 24-year-old graduate in Higher Education, who also has a certificate in Sports Administration, hails from Ambler in the Keystone State. The son of Clifton and Kandi Moore, when he is not hitting winning shots, he enjoys music and fashion – and his favourite foods, steak and lobster.

Why Clifton? It’s simple. We pride ourself in supporting young, up-and-coming talent, whether in Civil Engineering or in sport. We already sponsor Joe Wilton, goalie for Largs Thistle, and Glasgow Riders junior cycling club. We have also supported GHA Junior Rugby over a number of seasons.

Clifton Moore Jr is in his first season at the Gladiators and looks to be a great find. He was interviewed on Sky Sports at the weekend after being the stand-out player in the first half. It was bizarre seeing the DBA logo on Sky Sports. A very proud moment for us.

Clifton should be visiting the office over the next couple of weeks to meet his sponsors.
