The new A-Team
We put in much work to find a strong talented team and after some bad decisions, we hope now that we have build up a team, that could bring us a great success in future seasons.
Long time plans with Director Arina Evelina Saizewa and headcoach Jamiro in the lead should work well and both have the full confidence of Ruse.
But lets take a look at the squad.
There we plan with Adele Morvan as number one. The 24 year old french keeper has nearly full key stats and was a wishplayer from Arina, who saw in the exchaser a perfect keeper talent. After long training we are happy that Adele has settled with her new position.
Our chaserline is lead by german chaser Rainer "The Commodore" Kurth (middle of the picture). Kurth joined us from the Cardiff Corgis. Around him we try to build up a team. Kurth could also become a future teamcaptain and is at the moment the high charismatic player at the field.
Beneath him we plan with northern ireland talent Crosby "The Valeyard" Eaton (Left) and Kerry Mahmood (r.), as defensive Chaser. The Ex Keeper Talent Mahmood shown good talents as chaser, while the Valeyard has strong beaterqualitys. As strong and aggressive Chaser should Eaton bring in some harshness in our game.
Our beater duo will be composed of the only scottish player in our future starting line Nicole Matthews and the irish talent Baron Boyle. While Boyle is maybe the stronger player at the moment, Matthews could become the fanfavourite of our team. Matthews joined us buy our ex parent club Swansea Alchemists, has played at the Raven Academy from sisterclub Hygh Wycombe and is beneath her scottish origin also a very fan near and friendly woman, which always have a smile and some words for her fans.
Both will need some work but shown good talent to be a dangerous duett for our oponnents.
At last we are happy to get Albert Gallais. The most expensive player in our squad is also the most controversialplayer in our team. With strong qualitys which nobody likes to deny him, he is the star in our team, but as player from our missed rival Manchester Gryphons he also have to work hard if he likes to win the heart of our fans and if he struggles he will feel much more pressure then the rest of our team.
Albert himself hope that the fans gave him a chance beneath the old rivalry with his ex club, but also he miss the gryphons and feel sad to see them go out of the game.
As seeker he has beaten sisterclubseeker Gertrude Johnson in his direct duels last season which impressed not only Arina and shown his qualitys and if he plays that way again he could become a legendary Victoryplayer.
At last we like to take a look at our bench, which we like to build up for future times.
At first we are happy to keep one player from our beginnings. As surprising second Keeper we nominate "The Oncoming Storm" Selenna Brennan. The Ex Chaser should show her great flyingskills from now on as keeper and the number seven should keep the spirit from our last seasons success in our team. Brennan feels happy to stay in Ayr equal if she plays or not. She feel fine in Ayr and enjoys to be the most beloved player by the fans.
As reserve chaser we plan with max McKay. The Us boy is near to the first line and has to fight against The Valeyard to win a place in the starting lineup. Maybe he is more talented, but also he struggles more at his broom.
At last we have youth player Aaron Pritchard who could become maybe a chaser, but has to work very hard at his dexterity to become a higherleagueplayer.
With new teamcaptain and completely transfer mistake Justine Cook we don´t plan anymore.
The aged chaser has cost more then 20k and is a good leader for our young chasers, but with the decision to build up a complete new team she hasn´t a future in Ayr and is searching a new team.
Goodby we have to say to many great players, like Randolph Blackburn, Bernice Cole (who is the first player which not joins us via loan which reach reaches honoueleague) and the retiring ex teamcaptain Barnaby Ahmed.
At the end we are very happy with our new team. Which also suggest their future quality. We are 14th in Bronze with five wins and could maybe come back at the relegationbattle with only one game behind the Bullets and the Fireballs.
