The Pioneers are still making changes despite a difficult season that ended with honors due to an unexpected return. The club already faces two departures, despite the announcements by the leaders that they want to build their workforce in 2022-2023 around a core group of French players.
Fabien Kazarine, who left Anglet for Anglet in the first season, was, we must admit, disappointing. The second departure is much more concerning. Loic Coulaud should be officially recognized by the Pioneers. The offensive's major component was revealed in the four seasons that were spent in the Chamonix shirt. He is very important and will be difficult to replace.
Second, the leaders wanted to confirm the renewal of Scott Jacklyn and Marc Lefebvre as coaches behind the Chamonix bench. Both men are hard at work rebuilding this team. They had a successful season, resolving a complex situation and ensuring that the team was eligible for the play-offs. This is a confirmation that the club wants stability.
Clement Ginier made the last announcement about Richard Sabol, the goal lining. After good performances, he was able convince coming from Roanne. We do not know the future destination of Olivier Richard from Briancon, but we do know that he is being replaced. This 25-year-old player, who was a minor in Mont-Blanc, will be returning to Haute-Savoie.
A departure was also made by the defense, with the solid Finn Konsta Meikamen leaving. Meanwhile, Johanesse Nilsson, the young striker, was named as a starter. We will be hearing more announcements in the coming weeks. Let's learn more about the new Pioneers image for next season.
