Sumerel re-signs for Dale

Garth ‘Vader’ Sumerel re-signed for Dale midweek as Manager Mr_Mayhem hit the transfer market once more. The 33 year old agreed terms with the club quickly, as once he knew Dale were interested there was no way he was going to let the opportunity pass to return to the club where his career began.

Sumerel transferred to U.C. Sminkio four seasons ago in a £1.2M transfer after making 245 appearances for the Dale, before going on to make 76 appearances for U.C.S.

Sumerel missed on on the league match at the weekend, but it’s thought he may feature in the midweek GL match against Polomint.

A defender at heart, but able to operate as a holding midfielder, Sumerel brings additional reinforcements to an ever fragile looking defence. Once again, like last season Dale suffer somewhat from injuries, and with an aging backline it is likely to get worse. Most recently, 张 (Zhang) 偌锋 (Ruofeng) picked up a right arm injury, which looks set to keep him out of the squad for two weeks, couple that with central defender Daniel Sattler being sent off, and so missing the next league match, Sumerels arrival is well timed.
