"This is a great fit for Rolf as Duisburg is a traditional Bundesliga club having last year be its first in non-Bundesliga due to finances and is expected to compete from promotion," remarked SSM's President Justin B. Stone.  "It is important for Rolf to enter a new market, and I am confident Germany will provide him with a positive environment."

Chencinski -_Hasharon

Back to back Israeli champions Maccabi Tel Aviv has loaned Canadian International Goalkeeper Tomer Chencinski to Hapoel Nir Ramat Hasharon for the 2014-2015 season. With Maccabi Tel Aviv's #1 returning to the club with eyes on advancing further in European competition, it was agreed that it was best for Chencinski to get loaned in order to play and gain further experience.

Last January, Chencinski was loaned to another Israeli club - Hakoach Ramat Gan - and performed well during the loan stint.  Chencinski is looking to build on that momentum with Hasharon who is looking to get promoted back to the top division after last season's relegation.  Stone Sports Management would like to wish Chencinski well in his transition to his new club and expects the loan to be fruitful for all involved.  Check out some video from last season's loan below.
