Sheffield Sharks have resigned former MVP Mike Cook.
The 6’4” guard/forward, a former NBA prospect said: “I am excited to be coming back to Sheffield, it feels like family here and home away from home, I have had great experiences and good support on and off the court. I feel like we have a reputation to recover, last season was definitely not what we expect at this club and we need to set our record straight.”
The Sharks head coach Atiba Lyons, presently in the States on a recruitment campaign said: “Mike is a very focussed player with a winning mentality, he is a mature player with a lot to offer younger guys in terms of their development and preparation.”
With three returning players so far to the roster the Sharks Head coach was buoyant about the year ahead.
“I am looking forward to it, I haven’t finalised my roster I am still looking at a couple of critical pieces but I have a plan and if I get what I am looking for with the quality of maturity on the team I have I am optimistic, said Lyons”.
The Sharks campaign begins on Friday September 18th when the Sharks face the Newcastle Eagles at home at the EIS, tip off 7.30pm. Watch out for summer early bird offers on www.tickets.com
