Frickenhausen hopes to get better results for the next season because it just shared the bottom of the table with Aleksandar Karakasevic's Pluderhausen. To achieve this objective, Frickenhausen brought Kenta Matsudaira back to the club. Matsudaira was expected to be one the main players in the Japanese team but his game hasn't evolved as thought. Even the player wasn't part of the team in Dortmund and is out of the Olympics. But doubtless, he will be a key element for the next season as well as his brother Kenji in the last season.
However, Frickenhausen continued looking for another player to reinforce the team and signed Koki Niwa. The raising star player is only 17 years old and is ranked Nº 15 in the world. Niwa shone last year as he followed Kenta Matsudaira's steps and became world junior champion but he caught more attention as he defeated Ma Long at the Asian Olympic Qualification Tournament, where he booked his ticket to London. Doubtless, the German club is well-prepared for the next season.
Besides, Frickenhausen signed German Steffen Megel. The German player was team mate of Ruwen Filus and Patrick Franziska in Hanau but they also had to look for new horizon because the club announced that it won't compete in the Bundesliga's first division for the next season. Ruwen Filus will be part of Zugbrucke Grenzau, while Patrick Franziska moved to Fulda-Maberzell.
Nevertheless, the German club didn't stop there and looked for a fouth player. The last signing was Wang Yang, Chinese-born player, who moved from Slovakai's Stavo Impex Holic.
