Haydn Annakie will lead the Dover Sharks 1st team for the 2017/18 season. Hayden has come through the youth system of the club and has now established himself as a first team regular for a number of seasons. He is an established number 8 but is extremely versatile and can play in a variety of positions within the pack and has been known to have the odd stint in the centres.
Haydn is also currently training hard along with his twin brother Nathan as they have been taking part in the national and international 7's competitions for Jamaica. They are both looking to be selected for further high profile international competitions in the future.
On accepting the captaincy Haydn said ' It is an honour to captain a club that I have been a part of for so long. I look forward to the challenges ahead and will do my all I can to help us have a successful season. We have had big but positives changes this summer, both in coaching team and ethos and I am very excited for the season ahead'
We wish Haydn all the best for the season ahead
