The Shark was at Woodseats Primary School to present medals to Y4 basketballers who were runners-up in a South Yorkshire schools’ tournament. The team also played during the break of a Sheffield Sharks BBL play-off semi-final at the Institute of Sport.

School staff member Helen Morris said: “We had a brilliant visit from Mike Turk. He spoke during a special assembly and brought the fantastic trophy that the Sharks won in the BBL final in London.” Pupils were delighted when the sports star then joined some of them of a basketball game outside and posed for photographs.
