Marin Marinov agrees: SV Fellbach’s basketball players will receive additional reinforcements before the upcoming regional league season.
SV Fellbach’s basketball players now have a very good connection with Bulgaria. This is due to the involvement of Kristiya Borisov. The new full-time youth coordinator and regional league assistant coach continues to maintain the best connections in his home country. The pioneers behind the scenes could announce the agreement with Nikola-Alexander Jekov in mid-August. The 19-year-old wants to combine basketball with studying sports science in Stuttgart. Now Fellbacher’s design team around department head Andreas Tsiminos has managed to win another player from Bulgaria to SVF: Marin Marinov will also be part of Iakovos Peidis’ team next season. The 23-year-old man is characterized by versatility. He is 2.05 meters tall, athletic and quick, so he can be used in almost any defensive position. “Marin’s build is the perfect basketball player,” says Andreas Tsiminos. The young professional already has experience in Bulgaria’s first league. Likewise, in the international Balkan league, where he was in the team of BC Beroe Stara Zagora, the representatives of Bulgaria, last season. After the trial phase, he has now decided to switch to SVF, with whom he wants to become Pro B in the coming round, if possible, the lowest professional level of this sport in Germany.
The goal is to advance to Pro B, Germany’s lowest professional platform
Before the start of the season in eight days, on September 17 at 17:30 at Gäuäckerhalle I, the Fellbachers have a promising team together against the newly promoted team from Lich. The best remained, Lars Berger ahead and Lithuanian Tauras Ulevicius. In addition, last season’s table evening, where many things did not go as expected, gets plenty of confirmation. Not only from Bulgaria. For example, 33-year-old Andreas Kronhardt, new from TSG Schwäbisch Hall and 2.04 meters tall, has played in the Bundesliga and several professional posts behind him. Zaire Thompson from Chicago, who grew up in Germany, has been involved in various positions in Pro B and Pro A, most recently with the Wizards in Karlsruhe. From now on, he is responsible for building the game in a new job, above all with Tauras Ulevicius, who has been at SV Fellbach since 2020. In addition, the American Andre William Gillette, 32, has fully returned to the SV Fellbach first team squad. “We look very strong on paper,” says Andreas Tsiminos.
