After performances in schwaig and gotha, the eltmann heitec volleys were guests of the second division team in hammelburg for a test match last friday. Especially in the fourth set, you could see that the players were exhausted from the hard training session in the early afternoon. Eltmann ultimately prevailed 3:1 (25:20, 25:18, 25:17, 22:25).
Coach marco donat saw a "small step forward. "It was clear that the players would run out of steam as the game went on, and that mistakes would pile up", donat wanted to attach only little importance to the result. It was clear that TV/DJK hammelburg, which starts the new second league season next weekend in kriftel, is already a little further ahead than eltmann when it comes to fitness. For donat, the main objective was to improve coordination between the individual parts of the team. The heitec trainer was "quite satisfied" with the result.
Guest players from norway
There has also been a new face in the ranks of the first division leader. Peeter ostwik, 20-year-old norwegian national player "will help us out until the end of september", as donat explained. With mathaus jurkovics and luuc van der ent still with their national teams, the eltmanners have arranged for the norwegian to play as a guest player. A commitment of the 20-year-old is at least currently not up for debate. Fans and team met for the first time on sunday. At the meet and greet in the georg schafer hall, it was all about introducing the almost completely newly assembled team to the eltmann supporters. "It was a great afternoon. Great to sit down with the fans again after the long summer break", donat says about this PR action.
