Season 45 nears the end. The Valkyries will stay safe in Gold league, but had to fight a long time against relegation.
With the outlook of having many old players its now a big question of new plans for our future and Manager Harley Shaw has much to do now, to strength up the team.
Before we talk about our future outlook we like to take a look at our past trades.
There we had to say goodbye to Legend Gertrude Johnson. The English seeker was one of the best in honour league un till she was sold to us.
With constant great games she lead our team into Gold League and plays herself into the heart of our fans.
As replacement we welcome our new record Transfer Mandy Gallacher.
We paid 80001 G for the scottish seekerstar who joined us from the Plymouth Catchers.
Untill now fans are torn about her. At one side she has a good stat but she lost to many important duells and don´t win enough games, if we compare her to Gertrude.
Shaw himself trys to protect her, but after a complete season is the argument, that she didn´t play many games for plymouth and that she needs time to get at her best level, not a very strong reason for her protection.
The same feelings have many fans about Orlena Speake. Speake plays a weak season with just 51.7% Bludger Hits. The fact that 36 year old beaterpartner Lorelei Miller reaches 51.8% is not a good argumtent for speake. At one side Miller was always a strong beater, but when Speake in her best years can´t beat an aged player like Miller its understandable that fans ask for the sense behind the 80k trade from Orlena.
At our keeper position we welcome Flavia Hermoza. The spain talent returns from Feederclub Windsor Wings and replace Ramsay Uddin, who joined the wings.
The 24 years old Keeper needs time to develop and so we don´t beat her for playingnot that strong for our team. But she has everything to become a wonderful player.
