After FC sand’s first team has successfully kept its place in the bavarian league, coach dieter schlereth’s team is now planning for the new season. After the club was able to keep the rough part of the team and also the first new commitments were made, now the fine tuning is still pending. FC sand relies on its own youth.
Departing players must be adequately replaced in order to be able to field a powerful squad in the 2019/20 season as well. However, this is only possible within the available funds and will still require some effort, as sports director erich barfub announced. But FC sand is lucky to have good youth work, which has taken the U19 team all the way up to the state league. From this team five players are now "ready" and are to be introduced to the bayerliga team – via stints in the second team, which will compete at least in the district league, and perhaps in the bezirksliga as well.
The preparation decides
The five young kickers are sebastian albert, christian knobloch, sebastian krines, andre lorzer and luca zeib. The quintet will participate in the preparation of the first team and then will be assigned to the individual team squads in the club. If the level of the five is not yet sufficient, this is, according to barfub, far from being a break. The junior players then remained under observation and could develop further in the second team.
Regardless of this, all five will begin winter preparation with the bavarian league squad before a final decision is made as to which team they will play for until the end of the season. According to barfub, it’s now up to the boys themselves to offer themselves and develop further – they have the talent, now it’s about the meat.
