Previously, the Korea Expressway Corporation announced that it had terminated her contract under an agreement with Katarina Jovic, her former foreign player, and recruited Catbell as her new foreign player.
Through the official account, the Korea Expressway Corporation said, “With half of the regular league passing, we decided to recruit Catbell, who has experience in the Korean league, based on the judgment that a substitute player needs to join and adapt quickly.”
Even on the 3rd (Korean time), the day before Catbell, she posted a picture of her boarding a plane to Korea on her SNS account, predicting her going to the V-League.
Later, when the road construction company officially announced her recruitment, she also expressed her delight by telling Catbell about her joining.
In a phone call with this magazine on the same day, Road Corporation manager Kim Jong-min said, “Catbell is currently preparing for the match on the 6th. I reviewed it, but I thought Catbell was the most suitable choice.”
In addition, coach Kim said, “Catbell is a player I have been watching constantly, and I have experience with (Bae) Yuna at previous GS Caltex, so I will adapt to the team soon. He is the player who knows best what role he has to play.”
Catbell is a reliable scorer when he is in good shape, and he has experience as a middle blocker, so he is expected to shine especially in blocking.
Catbell will start immediately from the match against KGC Ginseng Corporation on the 6th, the first match of the 4th round.
