THE Sharks will be taking a step into the unknown tomorrow night when they travel to take on a totally revamped Mersey Tigers squad in the BBL Trophy.

Only yesterday did the Tigers, who won three trophies last season, announce their roster for the campaign.

The future of Great Britain captain Andrew Sullivan looks in doubt after the club’s change of ownership but national team squad member Devan Bailey will definitely be leading the Tigers backcourt

There is also a spot for 29-year-old Dutch passport holder, Matthew Otten. The 6’5” guard played in the BBL with the Cheshire Jets during the 2007/08 season.

Veteran 6’8” forward Calvin Davis remains in the north-west as he swaps Cheshire Jets for the Tigers.

Davis will be joined by promising young talent Myles Hesson and 25-year-old 6’6” Canadian Kris Douse.

After beating Cheshire Jets twice last weekend, the One Health sponsored Sharks will be confident of reaching the last four of the Trophy with a strong show on Merseyside.
