The UEB Gesteco Cividale announces that it has reached an agreement with the athlete Martino Mastellari for the next sports season. Mastellari is a forward/guard raised in the Fortitudo Bologna nursery, in full maturity and certainly reliable for the A2 series. In fact, the Chieti player also wore the shirts of Ferrara, Poderosa Montegranaro, Napoli, Orzinuovi and Mantua in the Italian second division, as well as those of Pistoia and Brescia in the top flight. Mastellari is a pure shooter who can also score in the transition from the outside. His solidity will be a crucial pivot on the chessboard for coach Stefano Pillastrini.

WORDS FROM PRESIDENT DAVIDE MICALICH
“Personally, Mastellari has been following him for a very long time and I am delighted that he has joined our family. The agreement between the parties came about within a very short time, a sign that we both wanted each other. From a technical point of view, Mastellari is a player who, according to our assessments of the characteristics, the outside shot, the freshness, the hunger and the desire to make himself available to the group, fits perfectly into the UEB chessboard. Paradoxically, being one of the “veterans” of the group, we are sure that its figure in the external pack will also be of great importance as a guide for newcomers to this sector. With the signing of Mastellari, we decided, in full consultation with coach Pillastrini, to put together a squad that will only have one foreigner in the starting line-up. We want to take the time to shape and mold a renewed and young group through the daily work in the gym with a top-notch staff. Then, if we deem it appropriate, we’re then ready to step in and add the foreigner if needed. Without haste, we keep the joker in the drawer according to the wishes of our coach. Completely in line with our planning from day one.”
