Sarich Back to Win a Championship

Sarich back for a 3rd season
“Lets Win a Championship” says Sarich

Steelers defenseman Rod Sarich has turned down offers in Germany and Finland in order to secure a further years contract with the club, and is coach David Matsos final defensive signing ahead of the new season

Sarich said “I had offers elsewhere in Europe which is flattering, they were good offers for a lot of money, however I enjoy Sheffield, I love playing for the Steelers at the Arena, I am settled in England and I am excited about the team Matty is putting together. So when I sat down and weighed things up the decision to come back wasn’t a tough call for me at all

”When I spoke with Dave, talked about the team, how we were going to play It just convinced me that I should stay in Sheffield, I went home and said to my self “lets go win a championship” and I think with the team we have right now there is a good chance we can go and do just that”

Sarich joined the Steelers for the start of the 2005 season and has since notched up 114 games for the club scoring an impressive 76 points

Coach Matsos believes the Steelers couldn’t have found a better player to complete their defensive signings “I’m delighted Rod is back, at the end of last season I understood that he wanted to test the market in Europe, I know he had some good offers but I also knew he loved living in Sheffield and was settled here.

”When we spoke I got the feeling he wanted to stay and it didn’t take us long to iron out a deal. Rod is a great team guy, he causes a coach no problems, he comes to play every day. We saw last year that he has benefited from the rule changes and with his great skills he will cause every team we play against lots of problems”

Steelers have just 2 further signings to make before completing their roster for the 2007-08 season. The club will announce a pre season schedule in the next 7 days.
