This weekend of September 17th and 18th, it was back to school for the sixteen Aveyron formations engaged in R2 (5) and R3 (11). An overview of the forces involved.
Luc, Rodez III and Sources Aveyron
as regulars, Comtal and Capdenac
With no less than five representatives in Pool C of Regional 2 (Comtal, Capdenac-Figeac, Luc-Primaube, Rodez III and Sources Aveyron), Aveyron has pride of place in this division. Opportunity to attend many derbies for fans. However, after the departures of Rigaud and Lacroix (Onet), Roda (stop) or even Alvernhes (Pareloup), the championship does not stop at these Aveyron-Aveyron duels for Luc-Primaube in full reconstruction. Yellow-green coach Franco Vignola had to recruit to compensate for these departures and give his group new impetus. “The chicken is very tough, we’re going into the unknown, so we’re not planning,” he confided before continuing. Rodez III and Sources Aveyron are starting to look like regulars and will be looking to go one better than last season, especially with the arrival of ex-Raf player David Merdy in charge of Sévéragais to replace the Nurit-Poujol duo. Two promotions remain, Comtal and Capdenac-Figeac, who will discover the level. However, with two rookies with longer teeth, the discovery shouldn’t take too long than it seems. Comtala is expecting a crazy start to the season and the first derby against the Ruthenian neighbor from Saturday evening at 20:00.
The return of Millau and Réquista
New in Regional 3: Aveyronnais are shipped with only two hens instead of three in previous years. As a result, in pool G we find the always ambitious player Bassin and the descending from the upper floor Druelle among the favorites. Espoir Foot 88 and Rieupeyroux start an exercise they know how to do. Promoted Réquista will try to thwart predictions with almost the same group as last season on his return to R3. In Pool H, Le Monastère and Saint-Affrique should once again be in contention for the top spots, while Naucelle and Salles-Curan-Curan will want to get maintenance as soon as possible to hope for better. It will also be necessary to take into account the castonétoise reserve, which could benefit from a large number of pennants and its progress. Look out for the return of Millau and their coach Alfredo Perez to the regional level after several years of cleaning up in the district. A place to play.
