The CBA aims to reach a thousand this Saturday against Touraine.

Une semaine après les joueurs du CBA, battus à Vineuil, c’est au tour des bouillants supporters des Vauzelles de renouer avec la Nationale 3 ce samedi (20h) à…

UOne week after the CBA players were defeated in Vineuil, it is now the turn of the passionate supporters of Vauzelles to reconnect with National 3 this Saturday (8pm) as they host Touraine BC.

« Ideally, it would be to surpass the symbolic milestone of 1,000, » states Yohan Salmon, co-president of the CBA, who has decided to keep the matches free of charge.

Five years after the liquidation of CCBB (N2), Cognac is back at the national level. And plans to settle there. It is a challenging task for an inexperienced Cognac group at this level, which will compete in a group of fourteen teams where four will be relegated.

La défaite à Vineuil en est l’illustration. Même s’il y avait des circonstances atténuantes. « On n’a pas à rougir. On avait deux absents pour diverses raisons. On est toujours en recherche de notre poste 5 (pivot) », glisse Yohan Salmon.

Fortunately, the resolution is near. « We are currently resolving the administrative matters. If everything goes well, he will be here next week. »

This Saturday, the mission against Touraine BC, who won their first match against Clisson, will be even more challenging. « We don’t know this group too well, » says the co-president. « We know they had a good season last year. Their ambition is promotion. As I explained to the boys, it’s probably better to face them now. With the support of the crowd, we are not safe from a surprise. »
