Sharks confirm Lucaozy signing
The 19-year-old rounds out the Portuguese organisation's roster after over a year with DETONA.
Sharks have announced that they have secured the services of Lucas "Lucaozy" Neves after working out a transfer with DETONA. The 19-year-old becomes the second signing made by the Portuguese organisation in just two weeks following the arrival of Fillipe "pancc" Martins from W7M.
Lucaozy spent 15 months with DETONA following his transfer from Reapers in August 2019, helping the team to win the OMEN Atlantic Challenge, a tournament that was held in Lisbon and also featured Heretics, Movistar Riders and eXploit.
On Twitter, team coach Hélder "coachi" Sancho expressed his delight at the signing, saying that Lucaozy was the "missing piece in the team" after the departure of Mateus "supLex" Miranda and the benching of Luca "Luken" Nadotti.
"I am very happy that we have signed Lucaozy," coachi said. "I am sure that he will have more impact with us than he's ever had before."
Sharks will officially return to a five-man roster following the expiry of Leonardo "leo_drk" Oliveira's loan deal with MIBR. The 21-year-old entry-fragger is averaging a 1.02 rating for the Brazilian giants, who are taking part in the BLAST Premier Fall season and will also attend Flashpoint 2.
With this signing, Sharks now have:
