British guard, Jessica Eadsforth-Yates becomes the Queen's first signing for the 2022/23 season. The former England youth international spent last season with rivals Newcastle Eagles and before that a 4 year collegiate spell in the USA, most notably with NCAA Division 2 University, Davis and Elkins.

Jessica had this to say about her move:

I am beyond excited to be joining Gloucester this upcoming season. I truly believe in the vision of our coaching staff/ownership and feel we are building something special here. I look forward to bringing my skill set and leadership to the team and seeing where we stack up within the league table. I am confident that the group we are putting together will achieve the goals we have set out for the season. The future is bright for the Queens and I am grateful to be a part of it.

Head Coach, Jimmy Bower had this to say about his first signing:

Jessica really impressed me last season in her performances against us, she has a real will and drive to win. In our conversations Jessica had this inner fire to grow as a player, want to be in a constant competitive environment and help us create a winning culture. We are delighted she has chosen to continue her professional basketball career with us here in Gloucester.
