After a short period of time without a fifth, K10 have confirmed their new AWPer. In comes James “Flicky” Errington to complete the team, as they went into a rebuilding period after the end of the last ESEA season.
Flicky comes in as a replacement for Nino “NiNo” Roos, who stepped down both the team, and competitive Counter-Strike, in general at the end of September. This was one of two changes K10 have made recently, with Connor “Bigun” Suddons coming in as a replacement for Jamie “Tree” Callan, with the latter player moving to Ex-Coalesce just before the final ESL Premiership season.
Flicky joins after playing in that same ESEA Main division as K10 last season. He played for Holy Trifecta at the back end of that season, replacing Earl “Earl” Stephenson to finish out the season. While the team finished 43rd with an 8-4 record, and thus outside of playoffs, his personal performances in those final matches placed the player on K10’s radar as their new acquisition.

We knew we needed to set our sights on a GOAT to complete our squad, and there was no one better than the one and only @CSFlicky!

K10 started to make their changes after narrowly missing out on promotion to ESEA Advanced last season. The team made the playoffs of ESEA Main Season 46, but fell out in the second round of the lower bracket after losing to Ukrainian team ESC Gaming and Russian roster AVT, while taking a win against Russians MST during that run.
The team currently compete in ESEA Main and UKIC Division 1, the latter of which is where Flicky made his debut with the team the other day. It’s safe to say that the AWPer got off to a good start with his new team, top fragging as they headed to a 13-6 win over Souls-Land in their opening fixture.
Ethan “fl0wZ” Rogerson, Owner and COO of K10, gave UKCSGO the following comment: “James has been rising through the ranks of UK CS rapidly and after a fantastic debut in ESEA Main last season we are excited to welcome him into the team. James brings a strong mechanical base upon which we will help him build on, I’ve already seen him grinding out theory and can’t wait to see him compete under the K10 colours.”
K10’s roster is now as follows:
Adam “AdamJC” Colwell
Rik “ve1nzo” Zwegers
William “wiiam” O’Shea
Connor “Bigun” Suddons
James “Flicky” Errington
Elliot “Fett1s” Fettis (coach)
