Rače, currently occupying the 12th place on the standings of the 3rd SNL East after the initial part of the season and facing the challenge of avoiding dangerous waters in the fall, have secured a significant reinforcement. Returning to Slovenian football pitches is none other than Timotej Dodlek, a former player of Maribor, who, at the age of thirty-four, evidently still feels motivated enough for proving himself on the Slovenian third-league stage.
Timotej Dodlek last played in neighboring Austria, where he was initially a member of the club SK Sparkasse Stadtwerke Voitsberg, and later played for Sv Rottenmann. In the Austrian lower leagues, he played 48 matches and scored 11 goals. Before that, he also played for Nafta, Mura, Dunaujvaros, Zavrč, Lithuanian Utenis, Hrvatski Dragovoljac, Bačka, Fužinar, Koper, and Aluminij.
The former youth national team player of Slovenia, who excels on the left side of the midfield, has played 176 matches in the Prva liga Telemach in the past, and 33 times in the 2nd SNL. Now, he faces the challenge of the 3rd SNL, where he has never played before.
It’s quite surprising for Rače to also have a footballer from – Spain! Jorge Guimerans is a left full-back who has previously proven himself in the jersey of the lower-league club Alondras CF. He has also signed for Rače alongside Michael Rakar, a former Celje prospect who has scored 22 goals in 47 matches in the 3rd SNL. In Slovenia, he last played for Šampion, and in the fall, he scored 3 goals in 12 matches for the Austrian lower-league club FC Holcim PHP Management Ehrenhausen.
