Bertram Derthona, Edoardo Buffo will be part of the roster in the 2019/20 season

Bertram Derthona is pleased to report that Edward Buffo, guard born in 2001, will be part of the first team roster in the 2019/20 season.

Born in Cernusco sul Naviglio on 8 April 2001, Buffo arrived in Tortona last summer and played in both the Under 18 DNG championship with the black and white shirt and in double membership, the Lombard C Silver with the Olympia Voghera shirt.

Edoardo was also among the young players added to the first team during the 2018/19 season and made his debut in Serie A2 during the match played on the Leonis Roma pitch on Saturday 13 October 2018.

During the 2018/19 season, Buffo took the field in ten games with the Juventus Club shirt in Serie A2, scoring six points. In the 2019/20 season, Edoardo will instead be included in the ten players on the roster who will face the sporting year.

These are the words of Marco Ramondino, head coach of Bertram Derthona: ʺWe are happy to give continuity to a technical project started last season with Edoardo Buffo. For him this is an important step, in the awareness of having to work on many aspects of his game in order to become an added value to the rotation over the course of the year. I think this is also a good message for the other young players in our club, who will have a concrete example of how in Tortona there are real spaces for the kids in the youth sector..

So Edoardo Buffo: ʺI am very happy with this opportunity given to me by the company. I will do my best every day, in training and in matches, to achieve the expectations placed on me by the coach, the team and the club. The past year was difficult but at the same time formative, I hope the next one will be full of satisfaction and great emotions. I felt very comfortable in Tortona and I am convinced that it will be the same in the future.".
