Next Sunday (26th April), Mike Thompson will be running the London Marathon to help to raise money for the Rockinghorse Appeal, a Brighton based charity which provides equipment and funds for local children's health facilities in the Sussex Area.

The charity has personal significance to Mike. One of the facilities that has benefited from the charity's support is the Royal Alexandra Childrens hospital. Mike's sister was taken when she was diagnosed diabetic in 2005. Since then they have been able to move to a new purpose-built facility, thanks in part to the Rockinghorse Appeal’s work.…
There is no Sharks training this weekend, as the Crusaders squad will be training for the first time together at the New Park ground. Due to the Sharks having several players in the squad, plus the Sharks coaches, it is unfortunately not possible to run both sessions. Normal Sharks training will resume next Sunday.
A few weeks ago, Chichester hosted a round of trials for the Crusaders - one of four regional development teams for the Great Britain Lions flag football team. A number of Sharks players were successful in making the squad - hopefully we can reveal the names soon. In the meantime, take a look at the video that was was shot on the day. Turn on your speakers if you have them. Well done to all that took part on the day and congratulations to those that made the Crusaders flag football team. More details to follow. httpv://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6qL7k2fyrKk
