Spring transfers in SEHA - Gazprom League

Klemen Ferlin

With many handball teams already preparing for the next seasons, some SEHA clubs decided to strengthen their rosters for upcoming seasons. Particularly Meshkov Brest and Gorenje Velenje confirmed new signings that will join their teams in July.

Meshkov Brest officially completed the signing of Aliaksandr Bachko from Finland. Bachko is a Belarusian international who played for Kronon and SKA Minsk, before moving to play for Cocks in Finland in 2016. He plays as a centre back and played against Nexe in the group stage of the EHF Cup this season. The 29-year old will join Meshkov in the summer, and has signed a contract for two years.

After Klemen Ferlin decided to join Celje PL at the end of the season, Gorenje Velenje were quick to find a replacement. Emir Taletovic will make his return to Velenje, after coming through the ranks of their handball school. The 28-year old goalkeeper also played for Maribor Branik, Gwardia Opola in Poland and Bruck in Austria.

Celje PL have secured the signing of Grega Oklescen for the 2019/2020 season. The 22-year old Oklescen is currently playing for MRK Krka and has recorded 469 goals in 155 appearances. He will stay in Krka for another season, before joining Celje PL in the summer of 2019. Oklescen plays as a centre back, and definitely has a bright future in handball.

Some news are also coming from Novi Sad. After not succeeding in winning the domestic cup, Vojvodina have decided to part ways with Kasim Kamenica. The new head coach is Boris Rojevic, who was promoted from the position of an assistant coach. Rojevic has been in the club for a very long time, and the club felt this was the right move. They are defending the title in the Serbian national championship.
