Phil Sharkey RIP

We are extremely saddened to have to report the death, on Friday, 1st March, of Phil Sharkey, who managed our National Young Athletes team and was one of the founders of our "Wasps" section on Saturday mornings.

Phil-Sharkey

It was Phil and Steve Dunn's idea to add another training option for our Under 11s back in 1994-95. During the first few years training was irregular, but from 1998 it became more formalised, with membership fees and t-shirts, and the name "Wasps" was adopted.
