Ahead of F4: European boom and SEHA tradition

Meshkov Brest

Five years ago, when they joined the League, motto was pure Coubertin - most important thing was to take part. Now, they have reached their fifth F4 and a chance to fight for the title in front of their fans.

Season was tough, something completely new for Sergey Bebeshko. They’ve, for the first time, played in CL elite group managing to get through and by that fighting for regional final tournament until the very last moment. Primary goals are reached and Belarus has even played in France WCh eighth-finals which surely was an additional stress for the team.

11 wins, 2 draws and 5 losses is their SEHA - Gazprom League regular season score. Biggest results are a draw in Skopje against Vardar and win against PPD Zagreb in regular-season finale. Biggest minus - loss in Nasice.

Jamali and and Ostroushko have throughout the season proven to be big reinforcements and they’ve lost much with injuries from Nikulenkau and Tioumentsev. Pesic, Stojkovic and Kristopans were leading them.

They are a new thing in European handball and a thing to count on while keeping traditional SEHA role. Handball which is not as fast as Vardar’, not as tough as Veszprem’ but handball which has everything needed for the title at home.
