7 – Shoki Hirai   Leave a comment


Name : Shoki Hirai 平井 将生

Position : Forward

DOB : 4 Dec 1987

Height: 1.79m

Weight: 69kg

The big signing of for the 2014 season Shoki comes from Gamba Osaka and a career which has seen him score a hattrick in the Asian Champions League and 14 for the season in 2010.

He is a forward who likes to feed on through-balls and run direct at goal, with his biggest strength being his ability to score goals.

It makes something of a conundrum as we have options as our goal-scorer in Sakata and Punosevac so he may be asked to play a lot of the season cutting in from the right.
We play a system which allows the front 3 to switch position, but he doesn’t appear to be a player who creates much for anyone else.

Undoubtedly a good talent, we will see how willing he is to apply himself and put the work in to be one of the top scorers at J2.
