Ben Purton took over the management of the squad and renamed it first to Slough Sharks and then Sambuca Sharks. A merger with Grantham followed to create today's Grantham Sharks. He also uses the name "Sons of Anarchy" for the rapidplay squad (this year's winners)
Looking from the outside, it seems more complicated than that. Ben was already running a team under the Slough banner but with a separate registration list from that of Nigel Johnson's first team, and it could be said that the original Slough team of 1993 ended when Nigel Johnson's team declined to re-eneter in 2005.
No doubt the point can be argued differently too; and I stress that I am just an outside observer here. But it is a further example of how difficult it is to trace the histories of teams over the year. For the record, I regard the Barbican team which re-entered in 1996 as a different entity from that which played between 1993-5; then arguably it became a different entity again in 1998 when it became its own club (Barbican 4NCL), quite distinct from the (then still continuing) London club.
