{{Birmingham Moseley club) Rotherham Titians 9 Jan 2014 - Rotherham's coach, Lee Blackett,rarely picks out individual players for praise, but more often than not when he does, the name of Jack Preece comes top of the list.

Lee Blackett “In Jack I believe we are getting the best open side on the floor at stealing ball in the division, I have no doubt about that whatsoever, he is the best. Jack could have gone elsewhere but he’s chosen Rotherham because of the good things he’s heard about the club and he’s another one who’s desperate to come here and show people what he can do.”
