A couple of seasons ago, when the team started to grow, we formed a 2nd team of rookies. We dubbed them the Thespians in ‘honour’ of our town’s theatrical heritage (and no Billy, a Thespian is not a baby Shark). It was done in a jokey manner and is hardly a manly, fear-inducing moniker.
Over the past year or so, our approach and attitude has changed. Last year the team developed some bite and began challenging the first teams of our rivals.
With the drawing up of the new rosters and a new season nearly upon us, its time to give this team a new name.
It has been suggested that as we are all Sharks (and wear the shirts to prove it!), it might be a good idea to keep the new name shark related. And as its your team, we thought you’d like to be involved in the naming. So suggestions please?!
Here a couple to get you started (all types of Shark):
Mako (maori for ‘Man-eaters’)
Dakuwanga (Fijian Shark god – ‘Eater of Lost Souls’!)
