President’s Message: Finals Round 2

Hi All Sharks, 

The Sharks send their condolences

It is with a great deal of sadness that I write to advise you of the sudden passing of Cooper Ratten. Cooper was tragically killed in a car accident in Yarra Glen in the early hours of Sunday morning. 

Cooper was 16 years of age and had previously played at the Sharks. He is well known to the players of our Colts Black, and his younger brother, Tanner, is a player in our Under 13 Black team.

The Sharks community express our condolences to the Ratten family at this difficult time and wish to assure them that as a community we are here to support them.

Semi Final Results!

Last week we had seven starters for the finals, and now five remain! 

Well done to our Under 12 Blacks coached by Gary Moerenhout, and Under 14 Blacks coached by Andrew Mortlock for your fantastic season.  Your attendance week after week and the bonus of making finals is reward in itself! 

Congratulations to our Under 11 Red coached by Andrew Schafer, and Under 15 Red coached by Mark Lowther for winning their semi-finals and moving through to the Grand Final on Sunday 23 August 2015.  Great effort all!

Best of luck to our remaining teams who get another chance at a potential finals birth this Sunday.  It would be great again to all the Sharks family out this Sunday in support of our remaining teams.

Preliminary Finals – this Sunday!
