President Stefano Osti's company has gone fishing abroad for a bomber that has the characteristics that fit well with the needs of Federico Paghi's team, intent on taking a leap of quality from the tournament just finished.
Alex Mount, originally from Herne Bay, a seaside resort in Kent County, England, where he was born on June 22, 1998 (will celebrate Tuesday 23 years), is the second European player chosen by the Skaters Circle in his story, after Dutch Theo Habraken in the s.

He made his debut for RHC Invicta and then for Herne Bay United, founded in 1924, playing the U1 5 and U1 7 championships.
Alex's career leap took place in 2014-2015 with the passage to Sanjonanense, Portugal.

In the past season the Mount team, now from Three years in the titular quintet, he closed in eighth place, the best result in his recent history.
Mount started playing roller hockey following his dad at the Herne Bay races. ′′ Hockey - said neobiancorso - has always been my number one sport and I've had great times. I've had many coaches in my career but I wouldn't be the player I am today if it weren't for two coaches: Ken Pughe, who taught me the basics of this sport, and Carlos Amaral, who allowed me to take the leap to quality and going to Portugal ".
Alex perfectly remembers his first-team debut: ′′ Availed away at Letchworth. I was years old. I played the last five minutes and I missed a penalty, but that was the best fight ever ".
′′ Sanjoranense debut was better - he continued - despite losing 7-1 in Porto coach Vitor Pereira put me on the track for five minutes. I was only 17 years old and scored a direct shot against Nelson Filipe in front of 1500 spectators. The best goal? The one scored against Spain at the European under 17 championships in France in 2014 ".
The Skating Circolo welcomes Alex for this new Italian adventure in Maremma and wishes him the best of luck in a white-red shirt.
