Niemelä, Risteli rejoin injury-ridden SSRA

SSRA Oulu, presently second in F-liiga NLA, are rejoined by two club veterans as Emmi Niemelä and Sanna Risteli are back in the roster.

SSRA have been performing better than ever this season but lately, injuries have thinned their ranks. Therefore, forward Emmi Niemelä and defender Sanna Risteli have filled in first on training and are now back officially.

After last season, Emmi Niemelä’s number 22 was retired and Sanna Risteli downgraded to Haukiputaan heitto in women’s 2nd Division. Niemelä has played 147 highest league games scoring 125+59=184 and Risteli has 149 games with 86+55=141.
