Sullivan first signed for Riders back in 2011 and after a brief spell at London Lions, returned in 2015 to continue his historic spell at the club. Since moving to their Leicester Arena home, Riders have dominated British Basketball and for Sullivan in particular, he has overseen a series of glories at the sides new home. After a treble winning season, Sullivan's decision to retire after 21 years will see him move into coaching as well as into the world of martial arts.

A number of former teammates will return to the court, with Barry Lamble and Anthony Rowe both confirming their place in the game.
