Tainted Minds add dexter and ferg

The Australian organisation, Tainted Minds, has acquired the services of former Winterfox player, Christopher "dexter" Nong and veteran, Fergus "ferg" Stephenson as the new coach of the team.

Since the departure of Travis "⁠wizard⁠" Richardson earlier this month, the former Athletico players were seen competing in the Australian division of ESEA Premier Season 24 with two new additions in their roster. 

It has now been confirmed that Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong will replace wizard as the new fifth man. He was most recently seen playing under the Winterfox banner in the previous North American season of ESL Pro League, where the team finished 10th.

On the other hand, Fergus "⁠ferg⁠" Stephenson will join the squad as coach, guiding the young lineup with his experience gained in the past decade from competing in 1.6 at a high level, representing Immunity in Australia and Against All Authority in France with David "⁠Xp3⁠" Garrido.

Although not achieving the same success in CS:GO, he was active in the scene as a player recently, representing STREAMLINE, Exile5 and Athletico with several other top Australian players during the past few years.

Tainted Minds are currently ranked second in ESEA AU Premier (5-1), just behind their undefeated rivals, Chiefs, who are 6-0 up on the ladder. Besides ESEA, the roster have the upcoming ZEN Esports Network Asia-Pacific League to prepare, which will commence on March 6th.

Tainted Minds now have the following lineup:

Australia Stuart "⁠sonic⁠" Rayner
Australia Jesse "⁠InfrequeNt⁠" Barker
Australia Jay "⁠Liazz⁠" Tregillgas
Australia Connor "⁠chuch⁠" Morgan
Australia Christopher "⁠dexter⁠" Nong

i have high hopes for these guys, gl!

dexter was the obvious pick-up for TM. But the next move for WinterFox if they bring in someone form the AU scene will be to pick up Liazz and give Moku the boot.
