The runners-up of the Russian women’s volleyball championship, Lokomotiv, started to compose the roster for the next season.

 

Lokomotiv, who wittingly lost the top spot in the 2019/20 Superliga Parimatch regular season, which turned out to cost them the title as the competition ended due to coronavirus pandemic (regular-season winners Dinamo-Kazan won the title), made two contract renewals. Back-up outside hitters, both Russia National Team members, will stay in the Kaliningrad team one more season: Tatyana Yurinskaya and Irina Voronkova.

Last season, they were overshadowed by Margarita Kurilo and Tatyana Kosheleva. Lokomotiv fans are certainly eager to hear if the latter will keep wearing the jersey of their club in 2020/21 but it’s yet unknown.

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
