In the recent round of the Hungarian Championship we visited Siófok. Our green and white team made a lot of mistakes in attack and defence which the home team always revenged and could take advantage of the opportunities, so we ended up with a five-goal defeat.
Announcements of the 2020/21 season will continue at Győri Audi ETO KC’s team. Silje Solberg comes to the goalkeeper position, replacing Siófok's jersey with a green-white jersey. “She is a really experienced player that we have been following for a long time. She is a two-time European and world champion who is the number one goalkeeper in the Norwegian national team and knows Hungary very well since she has been playing handball in Hungary for the second year. A couple of weeks ago, when we announced Laura Glauser, I mentioned that we are looking for a long-term solution to the goalkeeper position, with two young but extremely experienced player planning to reinforce our team. This concept fits perfectly with Silje Solberg, a true sportsman, a very positive personality who will surely be a great long-time goalkeeper with Laura Glauser in our team. We signed a three-year contract with Silje.” said dr. Csaba Bartha, President of the club.
“I am very pleased to be able to join Győri Audi ETO KC this summer. It's the best team in the world and it makes me excited. I want to fit to the high expectations here, and I want to be able to take part in future success. The fact that in Győr we have to keep doing our best I am even more motivated to change because I am a perfectionist and I always want to bring out the best from myself. I hope I can have a lot of great success, but in the meantime I am trying to help my current team.” said Silje Solberg.
