The Polish Men’s Volleyball team Jastrzębski Węgiel announced that they have signed a two-year contract with Graham Vigrass.

 

Jastrzębski hired Canada national team middle blocker Vigrass. A 30-year-old player is familiar with competing in the Plus Liga as he defended the colors of ONICO Warszawa last season, winning the historical championship silver medal for the club from the Polish capital.

Vigrass has been building his professional career through the French, Tunisian, Turkish, and German Championship (two-time winner with Berlin Recycling Volleys) before coming to Poland. He was named Best Middle Blocker of the 2017 FIVB World League.

A bit earlier, Jastrzębski announced tying Brazilian setter Raphael Margarido “Vinhedo“, who returned to the club after seven years, from Chemik Bydgoszcz. A 35-year old player even got the military rank of a sergeant in his home country. Vinhedo took part in winning the 2005 FIVB World League with Brazil national team.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

ECH U16 W: Turkey outplay defending champions Italy to win gold medal

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
