The South Hobart Sandy Bay Sharks are pleased to announce that Trent Keep will return to the club for season 2014/15.
Trent played 35 matches for the Sharks in his two previous seasons from 2011 to 2013 before returning home to play for the Latrobe Demons in 2013/14.
Last season Trent made 758 runs for Latrobe at an average of 42.11 and a highest score of 150 not out and returns to the club a more mature, well rounded player and young man who will increase the young batting depth at Queenborough.
We are delighted to have gained Keepy’s services this season to carry on a very proud recent history of player retention at the club – once you’re a Shark you never swim far from home.
We look forward to a successful season for Trent on field and more importantly welcome Trent and the Keep family back to Shark Park. Stay tuned for more announcements regarding coaching developments and other player acquisitions in coming days.
Sharkman is thriled to announce Na will be returning for 2014/15! Na had a very successful season herself, being picked as captain in the CTPL Women's team of the year which is a mighty achievement in her first year in Australia. The girls loved playing under Na and are looking for even more success this season after a great 2013/14!
While Sharkman doesn't go much on the cold weather, a number of Sharks are keeping themselves busy over the off-season!
George Bailey led the Kings XI Punjab to the final in the Indian Premier League and were close to going all the way.
Alex Doolan is playing well for Australia A in Darwin while Sean Willis is playing in the same tournament playing for the National Development Squad. The pair take on India A and South Africa A as well as playing each other!
Robb Macmillan, Trent Keep and Harry Nichols are all playing cricket over in England.
Hamish Kingston is back in Hobart for Tasmanian pre-season training after having a stint with Leigh CC in England. Kingo was rewarded for his outstanding form last season with a Tigers contract. Well deserved Mish! This now takes the number of Sharks with an Australian or Tasmanian contract next season up to seven!
Also a special mention to Shark and Test player Alex Doolan who married the beautiful Laura over the off season. Many congrats from the Sharks family!
