Not used at provincial level with the ball, he was effective for Montrose and during his first three seasons abroad, firstly for Stony Stratford CC (2011 & 2012) and a trip to Holland in 2013, joining HBS whom he would return to in 2018 for another Topklasse campaign.

In 2011, Sharn had a sensational start to his first overseas trip, with three hundreds in the first month of the season, Sharn was asked to turn out for the Northamptonshire 2nd XI. Three solid seasons were followed by a 5 year hiatus before a permanent move North saw him return to the Topklasse competition, whereby he scored 656 runs @ 38.59 in 2018 for HBS. He backed this up in 2019 with an outstanding summer, finishing as the leading runscorer in the country with 832 runs @ 52.00 with a best of 123.
