Now that HC Landsberg's 2020/21 season in the Oberliga Süd has come to an end, the first personnel decisions are already being made for the coming season. Two important defensive specialists have already been signed again.
Coach Fabio Carciola's contract was extended early on, and now two important defensive players have signed new contracts. Both captain Tobias Wedl (27) and Markus Jähnichen will continue to play for the Riverkings next season. Both are true Landsberg homegrowns and have done well in what has been a difficult Oberliga season overall. Wedl played a major role in ensuring that the team got along well despite some lack of success, said team manager Michael Oswald. "And he is a rock-solid Oberliga defender."
Markus Jähnichen, on the other hand, had positively surprised those responsible. "He was one of our most consistent defenders at times, is physically robust and occasionally gets involved in the offense."
Dennis Sturm, Michael Fischer and Maximilian Rass will no longer play for the Riverkings. Vice-President Gerhard Petrussek thanked the trio: "We are very happy that they have gone along with us. For them, it was a time-consuming effort that they had not planned for. The planned intensification of the training rhythm will increase this effort even more in the future. It was therefore mutually agreed that they would go their separate ways after this season. "All three are great guys who are always welcome for a beer," Petrussek said.
