The Sharks are competing in the 7 team MH Cup tournament on Sunday 20th January in Andover. There was going to be an England vs Wales return International but the Wales team called off just after Christmas.
The Sharks are sending a depleted squad as a number of players have moved overseas in the last couple of weeks, while injuries and unavailability has also left only a skeleton squad. Speaking the day before the event, newly installed Head Coach Dayle Kirby said “Although we have a number of players missing I have full confidence in the team we are sending out tomorrow. We have to be adaptable with individuals playing on both sides of the ball. This is the kind of resilience and team effort which won us the title last year. We hope to try out a few new things and will use this as a warm up for the forthcoming inaugral BAFL Flag League which I and the rest of the Chichester Sharks are fully behind”.
