TSV Landsberg signs a top-class player thanks to 3C-Carbon

A large part of the Bayernliga was after him, but Alex Benede finally gave the nod to TSV Landsberg. The commitment was made possible by the main sponsor, 3C-Carbon Group AG.

3C-Carbon Group AG, TSV Landsberg's main sponsor for many years, agreed to significantly increase the sponsorship budget once again at the club's request. This made it possible to make the 32-year-old defensive specialist an offer that ultimately convinced him. "This is really a great thing, the way our main sponsor has once again shown an exceptionally strong commitment to us. We can only say thank you for that and hope that we can repay it with good sporting performances," said head of football department Sebastian Gilg.

With Benede, TSV Landsberg has landed a real top-class player. He trained with 1860 Munich and FC Bayern, among others. In the latter's 2nd team, he also played several third league games with now well-known stars such as Holger Badstuber and Thomas Müller. In recent years, Benede, most recently as player-coach, was the defining figure in the build-up of play at Bayernliga rivals SV Pullach until they unexpectedly parted ways a few weeks ago.

"I had several offers after that, but it was impressive the way Landsberg made an effort to get me," says Benede. "Here I meet a club with really professional structures and Mike Hutterer, with whom I already harmonised very well in Pullach. I'm really keen to play here."

HCL signs Leon Lilik

HC Landsberg has announced its first new signing for the 2021/22 season: defender Leon Lilik has transferred to the Lech from the EXA Icefighters Leipzig.

With the 25-year-old defender, Landsberg will gain a lot of experience and probably also more stability in the squad. Lilik learned to play ice hockey with the Frankfurt Young Lions and ended up in Leipzig after playing for the Frankfurt Lions, Selber Wölfe, Moskitos Essen and Hannover Indians. He has already played a total of 286 Oberliga games.

According to team manager Michael Oswald, Lilik has turned towards Augsburg for private reasons, "We have been in contact for some time and are pleased that we were able to come to an agreement quickly." The newcomer is a robust playing defender, "who is stable in defence and can also bring the physically tough component into the game."

At the same time as signing Lilik, the Riverkings extended the contract of Jonas Schwarzfischer. The 22-year-old forward is a homegrown from the HCL junior team and most recently completed his first Oberliga season.

HCL sets course for the coming season

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.

Riverkings go one better

Things haven't gone as well as they would have liked for HC Landsberg in the Ice Hockey Oberliga Süd lately, which is why those in charge have now reacted and signed two new players, Mathias Jeske and Dominic Erdt.

The Riverkings were able to keep up with their opponents at times in the most recent games, but in the decisive moments it was always noticeable that the young squad lacked experience. That's why the HCL didn't hesitate for long when Mathias Jeske became available on the transfer market. The 29-year-old defender has already gained Oberliga experience in Peiting and also attracted attention with consistently good performances in Waldkraiburg and Erding. With a height of 1.96 metres and a fighting weight of 115 kilos, he should also have the physical presence that has been missing in Landsberg's defence lately.

Jeske will be joined by a familiar face for the Riverkings. The 20-year-old Dominic Erdt already played for the Landsberg junior team before moving to El Paso (USA), where he scored 87 points in 96 games in the Western State Hockey League. Due to the Corona pandemic, he was now unable to return to the USA after a home leave and will therefore strengthen his home club in Landsberg in the coming weeks.

Feigl reinforces the Riverkings

While two players leave HC Landsberg for different reasons, Marvin Feigl from ERC Ingolstadt is a promising young talent coming to the Lech.

The 18-year-old Feigl is now collecting Oberliga playing practice in Landsberg. In Ingolstadt he is the top scorer of the DNL team and ranks seventh in the German league table. The young striker has also trained with the Ingolstadt DEL team. The transfer came about through the former EVL coach and current sports director in Ingolstadt, Larry Mitchell. HCL President Frank Kurz: "Marvin is a young, hungry striker who can skate very fast and shows the necessary bite to assert himself in the senior's area".

In contrast, Patrick Seifert's days with the Riverkings are already over. However, it was to be expected that he would leave the club sooner or later in the season. The 30-year-old defender, who had been signed on short notice, had never made a secret of the fact that his goal is DEL2 again - he has now been signed there. "He is still in his best ice hockey age and it was clear that his time with us would end sometime," says Vice President Gerhard Petrussek. "We are very grateful that he supported us in the first games in the Oberliga."

Middle striker Markus Kerber is taking an indefinite break. He has some highly vulnerable persons  in his immediate family circle and does not want to expose them to unnecessary risk. President Kurz fully understands this. "He did not make the decision easy for himself. His thoughtfulness fits the kind of person we appreciate in him, he is a very social and circumspect person. In human and sporting terms, the break is of course a pity, but there will also be a time after Corona."
