Both will have the dual role of coach-player. After the adventures of last season, the question then arose of starting again this year. But no question of abdicating for the leaders and the staff. “The question only really arose for a second. Already because we have a young president, Mathieu Loti Viaud, determined to do everything to save his club. We still have a core of 13 players who were always there last season and who were very disappointed with the packages. With all this, we could not give up. Also from a personal point of view, I could not stay on this failure, ”adds Brice Sentenac.
The off-season was therefore not easy to build a group and avoid finding the same problem. “We had a lot of work. Currently, on a workforce of about thirty players. It’s not huge either but we should get by. »
In the short term, management wants to be cautious. The first objective, namely to save the club, has already been fulfilled. For the rest, we will have to wait several days before knowing where this team is in this Regional 3 championship. With the reception of Vélines, Sunday September 25 (3 p.m.), Le Buisson has a good opportunity to restore its image.

“It’s going to be a special moment for sure, against a team that has experienced squad problems like us. It’s up to us to respect them and get a good result for this first game. You have to be well aware that our adversary is not going to give up until the last minute”, resume Sentenac. For their part, the Vélinois were beaten at home in the opening by the Copo (13-26).
