„HEART OF STEEL”
New coaches at the Academy
Already this week, our youth teams have also started the preparation.
Two new coaches will be added to our professional staff for the 2021/2022 season. The resigning Ákos Orbán will be replaced by Szabolcs Törő, who will be the coach of the U15s, while an experienced specialist, Mihály Bacsi will assist the work of our teener I. team.
Szabolcs Törő does not really have to be introduced to the handball lovers of Dunaújváros, as the multiple Hungarian national handball player became a professional handball player in Dunaújváros. He started his coaching career two years ago in Dunaföldvár, and from there he comes to us from the handball department of Holler UnFC. Last season, he and his team remained unbeaten in the men’s NB II, South-Western group.
Our other arrival, Mihály Bacsi, arrives in Dunaújváros from Székesfehérvár. There, he first took over the then U10 age group, born in 2003-2004, and trained them for three years. He also achieved nice success later with the 2007 age group, with whom he spent five years. It is safe to say that our youths are thriving with an excellent coach.
Almost forty young handball players took part in our Academy’s “festive” selection day.
Three young players have signed a long-term contract with our team.
The Professional and Competition Committee of the Hungarian Handball Association (MKSZ) declared to end all the youth series of competitions for the season 2020-2021. They are however giving the opportunity to teams to organize tournaments for the period between 22nd May and 30th June 30.
Within three days our youngsters competing in NB II gathered two victories.
While the youth tournaments are still suspended, the fight among the adults for the Academics has continued.
