B. Braun Sheffield Sharks last night announced the first commitment of the 2021-22 campaign, as long serving Captain Mike Tuck has signed a one-year contract extension into his 13th season with the Sharks.
The Toronto, Canada, native and dual passport holder joined the club way back in 2009 and has won four major pieces of silverware with the club including two back-to-back BBL Cups (2010 & 2011), the 2013 BBL Trophy, and the 2016 BBL Play-Off Final, for which he was also awarded Most Valuable Player.
“I’m extremely lucky to still be playing the game I love and will always be grateful to the Sharks for providing me with the opportunity,” said Tuck.
“The past two seasons have, by far, been the strangest in my career due to COVID, so I am looking forward to returning to some sort of normality in the upcoming one.”
Meanwhile, the search continues in the background as Head Coach Atiba Lyons continues to fill out the rest of the roster for the forthcoming season.
“Having Tuck back helps build that solid foundation,” said Lyons. “We have some exciting announcements to make in the coming weeks and can’t wait to get back out there in the upcoming season.”
