Ungureanu and Stanca arrive
The Constantin Stanculescu Memorial tournament was a great opportunity for all Oltchim fans to see two new faces in the team. Line player Ionela Stanca returned after a season in Rulmentul Brasov. The Romanian international signed a two-year contract for the team of Radu Voina.
Goalkeeper Paula Ungureanu arrived from Podravka Vegeta. She will be an excellent replacement for Luminita Dinu who decided to retire at the end of last season. The 29-year old signed a one-year contract.
The third player to sign was Ukranian international Olga Vasciuk. The right back born in 1987 comes from Motor Zaporozhye.
Compared to last season, Luminita Dinu, Rita Borbás, Elena Avadanii, Roxana Cherascu and Raluca Ivan left the team.
On 21st August Oltchim Valcea will take part in the Szabella Cup in Debrecen, Hungary, together with Győri AUDI ETO, Hypo Niederősterreich and Debrecen.
