l’essentielFrédéric Zadro’s team begins their season this Saturday by hosting the Girondins. The goal is to start with a victory.
After a little over a month of preparation, the VCGB returns to competition by hosting the Mérignac team. This match will take place in Castéra-Verduzan at 8 PM. Indeed, the storm on June 21st caused a flood on the floor of the Jacques Baurens Hall, which is currently not usable.
Despite this fact, Lionel Trépout’s teammates have undergone a preparation with results and performances that suggest interesting things. Only two defeats in Layrac and TOAC (NM2), but above all, a total involvement of all the players, a good integration of the new ones, and already, boldness from the young players who have joined the group.
Du costaud, d’entrée
Face à Mérignac, les Vécégébistes débutent un périple qui s’annonce des plus difficiles avec une poule qui sera, très certainement, plus relevée que la saison dernière. La formation Bordelaise a subi de nombreux changements avec le départ de leurs deux meilleurs marqueurs Théo Larrey et Georges Tournier.

However, he maintains a core of experienced players with four who have played in Nationale 2: Chery, Jean-Pierre, Kouloumbia, and Pontens. Coach Romain Carrasset can also rely on the dynamic point guard from Agen, Rayan Khelifi, who caused so much trouble for the Gersois.
As mentioned, the championship is expected to be highly competitive and every victory will be important. With their new coach, Frédéric Zadro, President Vivès’ team hopes to regain some consistency and serenity and avoid losing points at home. They can rely on both the « veterans » and the new players who have joined the team in Gers, such as forward Rodrigue Munsi Kaniki, point guard Samuel Otoo, and the returning player David Seremet.
