CL sensation Tomis CONSTANTA celebrate sixth national league title
News from the clubs

Constanta, Romania, May 5, 2015. Tomis CONSTANTA extended their supremacy in domestic competitions and eventually claimed their sixth crown in Romania’s national league after a thrilling and dramatic final. On Monday night, Tomis delighted their home fans by claiming the deciding match of the Championship series with CSVM ZALAU by 3:1 (25-13, 27-29, 25-9, 25-23) to cap the best-of-five finals. This way the guys from the Black Sea put the icing on the cake of an already terrific season where they left their mark also on the European stage by sweeping five straight matches in Pool A to make the Playoffs 12 of the CEV DenizBank Volleyball Champions League for the first time in their history.

Tomis CONSTANTA started the Championships series with two 3:1 consecutive wins before their opponents of CSVM ZALAU responded by claiming round 3 and 4 by 3:0 and 3:2, respectively. On Monday the race for the title came to an end as Tomis exploited the home advantage to cash a 3:1 win and celebrate their sixth national league title. This way Tomis also got their revenge after losing the final of the national cup played on April 9 in Cheile Gradistei where ZALAU had stamped a rather surprising 3:0 victory (25-21, 25-19, 25-18). However, that match was played under special conditions since Tomis were missing three of their key players – Ventzislav Simeonov, Stanislav Petkov and Nikola Rosic.

As they could count on a complete roster for the final stage of the national league, Tomis won all of their three home matches and could celebrate their sixth crown following those previously seized in 2007, 2008, 2009, 2013 and 2014. The roster around Martin Stoev and his assistant Radu Began includes the following players: team captain Andrey Zhekov, Andrei Stoian, Ventzislav Simeonov, Andrei Laza, Andrei Spinu, Sergiu Stancu, Robert Vologa, Bojan Janic, Adrian Aciobanitei, Dragos Pavel, Razvan Tanasescu, Stanislav Petkov and Nikola Rosic.

“I want to congratulate all the players, because they showed a lot of character and these last five days they were able to get back the strength to win the title, which is very important for us,” their mentor Martin Stoev said. “I think for Tomis it was a great season and I want to dedicate this title to our club president, Sorin Strutinsky, who is going through a difficult situation at the moment. I want to wish him to be strong and get back out there and stronger than before, so as to build for the next season a team that will be even more competitive than it already was this year,” declared the Bulgarian coach of Tomis, who in the finals won the clash with his father and mentor of ZALAU, Stoyan Stoev.

“It’s a feeling of great joy, because it was the hardest title I have won so far in Romania. There was a lot of pressure in the final game, but we know that we are the best team in our country. We focused on this deciding game and we eventually won even though it was a very hard battle,” said the Romanian middle blocker Andrei Spinu.

“I scored the last point of the final, but it might have been also the last point of my career. I have not decided yet if I continue or I will retire after this championship. Now, I am very excited. We are very happy for this victory and I think we deserve this title. After such a tough match, the taste of victory is particularly sweet,” says the Bulgarian-born opposite of Tomis, Ventzislav Simeonov.

“It was the most closely contested final of the last ten years, a final where the opponents fought for each point, a final which was a perfect show for all Volleyball fans who had the opportunity to see world-class actions. We will do everything possible for this team to continue to play at the same level also in the future,” concluded Serhan Cadar, Executive Director of Tomis.
