On April 30 an IFC team "Nikolaev" was gathered after a three-day pause. Meeting at which football players informed on the decision of the management of club and trainer's structure took place. The decision to refuse services at once seven players who didn't justify the hopes rested upon them is made.
It is a goalkeeper Roman Smishko, defenders Denis Stoyan, Maxim Stoyan, Oleg Shevchenko, halfbacks Alexander Babor, Artem Proshenko, Alexander Vasilyev.
Witz - the president of IFC "Nikolaev" on sports work Leonid Nikolayenko gave such comment:
- Search of an optimum cast of IFC "Nikolaev" proceeds. The first five games and, especially - the last match in Ilyichevsk, most were seriously analysed. Conclusions of rather game qualities of the football players who have been recently invited in a team are drawn. Quality of a play of the team doesn't satisfy neither heads of club, nor fans. Trainer's structure and heads of club came to unanimous opinion that some players don't correspond to level and requirements. Them already left. Thus, from twenty six declared football players in a holder of team there were nineteen that is sufficient for performance in the remained matches of the present championship. Selection work is continued, we will attentively watch capable performers. We will pay special attention to pupils of the Nikolaev soccer. So, for example, Vladimir Malevanny (on May 18 he is eighteen years old) is already involved in trainings of team, playing for IFC "Nikolaev-2". To prove and be fixed in structure all opportunities both the invited nonresident football players, and local children - Cholariya, Belous, Gorobets and others have.
Head coach of team Mikhail Kalita:
- If at the first meetings still there were encouraging gleams, the last match with "Bastion" greased all picture. Constantly we inspire in football players that it is necessary to be given to fight in each match, to work at each training and in game. As it befits true professionals. We went to Ilyichevsk behind a victory.The starting lineup had to carry out the tasks, and the fresh players who have come for replacement (Komyagin, Rotan, Rybak) - finally to achieve a goal. At the end of a meeting it was succeeded to strengthen game, to intercept an initiative, to fray defense of the home team. But players of a starting lineup, unfortunately, didn't justify hopes, having passed optional goals. Didn't execute installation on game. The team now carries out two times trainings. Probably, on May 5 we will hold a meeting with IFC team "Nikolaev-2". On May 8 we leave to Cherkassy on the next duel of the championship.
