Martinsen for apple – second division handball team Coburg reacts to injury misery – sport
Handball second division team HSC 2000 Coburg, in which three of the four goalkeepers are currently injured, has signed an interim keeper in Havard Martinsen. The 44-year-old should already put on the Coburg jersey in the game against Eintracht Hagen on Saturday. Martinsen already played at HSC from 2004 to 2015. “We are very pleased that Howie would like to help us in this very demanding personnel situation for our club. We are in contact from time to time, but it is anything but natural that he now agrees directly and gets involved,” said HSC Managing Director Jan Gorr about the obligation. In addition to the long-term injured Kristian van der Merwe and the veteran Jan “Wolle” Kulhanek (torn biceps tendon in the upper arm), Fabian Apfel was recently absent. The young goalkeeper tore a muscle bundle in the adductor area of his left leg in the closing stages of the game against VfL Potsdam and is expected to miss HSC for four to six weeks.
