Choi Seok-gi, who came in the 19-20 season, is the ‘longest’?… Our card without ‘5th year ↑’

A one-club man. Usually, in the professional sports world, it refers to a player who has been playing for only one team. 

Representatively, Seon Han Han, a setter who has been with Korean Air for about 16 years, Jae-deok Seo, an apositive spiker who has been the face of KEPCO for 12 years, and Yeon-kyung Kim, who has been with Heungkuk Life Insurance for about 18 years in the women’s division, and IBK Industrial Bank for 12 years. There is Kim Hee-jin, who played in 

On the other hand, Woori Card is famous for ‘new farming’ every year since the management of Shin Young-chul. There is no one club man. As of the 23-24 season, the player who stayed with the club the longest was Choi Seok-gi, a middle blocker who came over before the start of the 19-20 season. As of the 22-23 season, it has just entered its 4th year. If he stays until next year without transferring, he becomes the team’s only fifth-year or older player.

On the 26th, Woori Card conducted a one-on-one trade with OK Financial Group to exchange outside hitters Song Hee-chae and Song Myeong-geun. It has been one day since the news of the trade between KB Insurance and Han Seong-jeong and Hwang Seung-bin was announced. 

Director Shin Young-cheol said through the club, “We made a trade to strengthen the position necessary for the team in preparation for the 23-24 season.” hope,” he said. 

Shin coach took over the team in the 2018-19 season. At that time, Woori Card had not been able to play spring volleyball for more than 10 years since its founding. Coach Shin’s frequent ‘team maintenance’ began at this time. Starting with the one-on-one trade of outside heater Choi Hong-seok with setter Noh Jae-wook (then KEPCO), large and small trades continued.

Noh Jae-wook also moved to Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance in a super-large trade about two years after joining the team. At the time of the 20-21 season, Samsung Fire gave Ryu Yun-sik, Song Hee-chae, and Lee Ho-gun, and Woori Card gave Hwang Kyung-min, Noh Jae-wook, and Kim Kwang-guk. When we gave away Noh Jae-wook, who made a good contribution to the team, and Hwang Kyung-min, who received the rookie award, the backlash from fans at the time was strong. 

Even after that, ‘trade farming’ continued. In the middle of the 21-22 season, Han Seong-jeong was traded one-on-one with Kim Jae-hwi and sent to KB Insurance. In the 22-23 season, Ryu Yun-shik and Lee Ho-gun were sent back to Samsung Fire & Marine Insurance, and Ha Seung-woo and Jang Ji-won were sent to KEPCO. Outside hitter Kim Ji-han and libero Oh Jae-seong also came to the team through a match trade during this time. 

However, the most shocking transfer news was separate. It was news of the transfer of Na Gyeong-bok, who was the pillar of the team.

Na Kyung-bok joined Woori Card in the first round of the 2015-16 season as the first choice and has been with the team for 8 years. Ha Seung-woo, a setter who joined in the 2016-17 season, was traded to KEPCO and was effectively the team’s last franchise player. However, after completing the 22-23 season, Na Kyung-bok, who obtained the second free agent (FA) condition, headed for KB Insurance with a total annual salary of 800 million won. 

In addition, veteran outside hitter Song Hee-chae was traded one-on-one with Song Myeong-geun (former OK Financial Group).

Currently, almost all of the players have been recruited to the team since the 2020s. Middle blocker Choi Seok-ki was recruited after the 18-19 season before the 19-20 season, and Jang Jun-ho (middle blocker) and Kim Gwang-il (setter) joined in the 20-21 season. 

Players recruited in 2021 include Kim Dong-min (outside heater) and Kim Jae-hwi (middle blocker), who were traded for Han Seong-jeong in December. 

Players who entered the 21-22 season are Lee Kang-won (apposite spiker), Kim Wan-jong, Lee Sang-hyeon (Lee Sang-middle blocker), and Kim Young-jun (libero). Then, ahead of the 22-23 season, Oh Jae-seong (Libero), Jeong Seong-gyu, Kim Ji-han (above outside hitter), Park Jun-hyeok (middle blocker), Han Tae-jun (setter), and Hwang Jun-tae (libero) joined the team. 

Here, ahead of the 23-24 season, Han Seong-jeong was traded back to Woori Card after 1 year and 5 months. Woori Card gave away Hwang Seung-bin, the main setter, in return for bringing back the player who had been sent out. Middle blocker Park Jin-woo also returned to his home team as a compensation player for Na Gyeong-bok. 

In addition to striker Issei Otake (Japan),먹튀검증 who was recruited by implementing the Asian quota system for the first time in professional volleyball history, Matei Kok (Slovenia), the only ‘new face’ outsider among the seven clubs, joined, and the new board drawn by the new coach is even more difficult to predict. lost.

If Choi Seok-ki is transferred with a trade card, there will not be a single player on our card who entered the 2010s. 

Meanwhile, the 2023-24 season V-League will kick off the regular league from October 14th. Previously, from August 5 to 13, the men’s and women’s professional volleyball cup competition will be held at the Park Chung-hee Gymnasium in Gumi.
