Freshly or newly formed?

I'm writing an article about Polish biking teams and the latest world championship success. Which form is more suitable for the following sentence:

Freshly formed Polish team or Newly formed Polish team

For me freshly sounds more natural but maybe it's not the best pick?

Kind regards,

    'Newly formed' is neutral: there wasn't a Polish team before this. 'Freshly formed' rather suggests there was one before, and it ceased to exist or has been disbanded, and a new team has been formed afresh: starting again.
