DBL Sharks Sheffield have announced the departure of star forward Antone “TJ” Robinson - who only re-signed for the club in July.

Sharks announced via their Facebook page that due to "unforeseen circumstances", Robinson would not be re-joining the Sharks for the 2016-17 season.

This news will come as a massive blow to Sharks fans as Robinson played a vital part in his side’s BBL Play-off final victory at the end of last season.

Robinson became known as the “double double man” in Sheffield due to his reliable 17pts and 11 rebounds per game, which will be sorely missed in the upcoming season.

Sharks did however announce that a replacement has been secured and will be announced in “due course”.
