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.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
