VfB Hallbergmoos has struck on the transfer market and caught the Sassmann and Hones brothers. There are still question marks behind two posts.
Hallbergmoos – After the frustrating relegation from the Bayernliga, those responsible at VfB Hallbergmoos are looking ahead. The fact is: It should only be a temporary farewell - in addition, the club has already almost completely assembled the squad for the restart in the national league. After a number of new additions in the past few days, only two positions are likely to be tainted with question marks.
Well-known greats are the brothers Moritz and Yannick Sassmann, who will be chasing points together for the Hallbergmoos team in the future. Moritz (26) comes from TSV Buchbach and definitely has the potential to be a Hallbergmoos king transfer: In the past two seasons, he made 59 appearances (four goals) for the Regionalliga club. He is an offensively variable player who can play on the wings or in the centre. Moritz Sassmann was trained in the youth of SE Freising and successfully kicked for the yellow-blacks in the Landesliga before making the career leap to Buchbach. His brother Yannick (22), who also grew up with the Lerchenfeld junior team, recently laced up his football boots for FC Moosinning in the district league and definitely has his home on the wing.
Marcos Hones from SE Freising is also moving to Hallbergmoos
The next brother transfer is the signing of Mateus and Lucas Hones from Schwaig. Attacker Lucas (22) made 24 appearances (one goal) for the neighbouring Landesliga club last season. Midfielder Mateus (20) played 14 games (one goal). And as a perspective player, striker Marcos Hones (19) from SE Freising is also the third brother: He recorded 21 Landesliga appearances and two goals in the past round. The new signings fit into the image of VfB, which consistently strives for the best footballers from the district and the immediate vicinity.

On the other hand, the Hallbergs have several departures with Andreas Kostorz, Andreas Giglberger, Moritz Mühlrath, Martin Dinkel, Aldin Bajramovic, Andrew Addo and Philipp Beetz, but these have already been compensated for by the newcomers. Sporting director Anselm Küchle assumes that the list of departures will not be much longer. With Kostorz and Giglberger, two club legends will take a step back in football in the future, while regular Beetz will change as a result of his move to Munich.
Who guarantees goals?
Küchle currently sees only two question marks in the Hallbergmoos squad puzzle - in relation to a centre-forward and a left-back. VfB have always struggled on the left side of the back four – and now Moritz Mühlrath has put an end to training after many injuries and long journeys.
However, the crucial question with regard to the championship capability in the national league is who guarantees the goals. Küchle points out that almost every club is looking for reinforcements in this position or at least keeps its eyes open. With Maurice David (21) and Fabian Diranko (23), the Hallbergs have two highly talented strikers who have only scored a few goals in the Bayernliga. Of course, this was also due to the fact that Hallbergmoos, as a cellar child, was not able to create so many chances per se. However, it is quite possible that the two existing attackers will personally make a leap forward with the step back into the national league. In any case, the VfB sporting director sees few candidates on the market at the moment. And it feels like the really good strikers have all already committed to their clubs.
