Those were the clear words: “At some point we’ll get the Shit Trophy,” said Jason Dunham (51), sports director of the Lower Bavarian Delhi Club Strubbing Tigers, during “Talks at the Powder Tower” on Tuesday evening. In terms of the team for the new season, a lot remained in the dark, but after this year’s quarter-finals against Adler Mannheim, the German-Canadians set a much larger goal: the German Championship.
Two key pillars remain loyal to the Tigers: coach Tom Pokal and captain Sandro Schoenberger. Schoenberger (34) said in reference to the program, “Even though I can’t find any smaller ones,” the two continue under the Powder Tower.
Fans can also expect that goalkeeper Sebastian Vogel will be in the Tigers’ goal again in the new season. “I’m sure we can come to an agreement,” said Dunham of the state of affairs in the context of the Nidderburn contract extension, “He is a team leader.”
According to Dunham, his Lower Bavarian goalkeeper colleague Timo Pelmire, who debated with his former club ERC Ingolstadt on the court about the arrears of salary, “is not an issue”. And he did not want to comment further on this personality.
The head of the game strongly opposed reports that players such as Sena Acolatse or Kell Moelriot have already left Lower Keria. “They are definitely not a departure yet,” Dunham confirmed. “All the players here have performed brilliantly over the years and they should be rewarded for this.” One of them is likely to be Travis James Mulk. “I think we can find a compromise,” the sports director said of the German-Canadian forward’s career. As happened with Antoine Lagnaire or Jeremy Williams (both of Canada), Dunham was not specific about this. The two are already back in their homeland, but offered Dunham that he could “call them in four weeks”.
In “Talk at the Powder Tower”, Dunham did not want to divulge which players were leaving the Strabbing Tigers and who would join Tom Pokell’s squad. “It is unprofessional to publicly talk about contract details,” the 51-year-old put all speculation to a halt. And: “We will announce all new additions in three to six weeks.” And they are safe like the new season, because “we always need new young players”.
In addition, the Tigers require more space for the office, as employees work there, according to the words of Tigers managing director Gabby Senjebon, on the border. But Strobinger has already taken the initiative to build a larger office and wants to move forward in the next year – perhaps he will work with “Shisha-Pokal”. – which ones
