Nimes Olympic

Chemin des Amoureux training center? On October 26, in the same section, we talked about the desire of Rani Assaf to build a new training center in Garons. Even if we are still far from the first blow with the pick, this idea originated in the mind of the President of the Crocodiles, who met with the municipality of the Garonne two months ago. The latter directed Rani Assaf to land north of the city. The main shareholder of NO, who is very interested in this flood-free area, also plans to install housing for the club’s young players there. Now he must convince four interested owners to sell their land. If the deal goes through, Nima’s next training center will be located on Chemin de Amour in Garon, a few hundred meters from the Joseph-Zanon stadium. ” I have no news from Mr. Assaf, but we would love the opportunity to welcome the Olympian Nîmes to our city.” explains Alain Dalmas, Mayor of Garon. When you arrive from Nîmes, this sector is accessible via the Saint-Gilles (D 42) and Arles (D 6113) roads on the D 442 road. Supporters may no longer say: I’m going to Bastide ” corn ” I go to Lovers “. A whole program.

Chemin Bas in Costier? The incredible epic at the Coupe du France de la Jeunesse Sportif Chemin Bas d’Avignon will continue on the weekend of 18 and 19 December with Ligue 1 club Clermont Foot in the 32nd final. It is obvious that during this meeting he receives the Petit Poucet Nîmes prize. At this level and in front of such an opponent, Stade Jean-Bouin is no longer favored. Thus, according to our information, on Tuesday morning, the city of Nîmes contacted Rani Assaf, President of Nîmes Olympique, to organize this event at the Costier Stadium. The NO majority shareholder has hinted that he is in favor of welcoming the Nîmes amateur team to the venue. This does not present a problem for Crocos, who will travel simultaneously to Toulouse, the leaders of Ligue 2.

Daniel Delprat awarded. Last night, the Garda Association of Football Pedagogues presented the Grand Hotel with the traditional Georges Boulogne trophy. This award rewards the Gard educator for all his work. This year the honor was awarded to Daniel Delprat (son of the former crocodile Hubert). This former professor of EPS (Physical Education and Sports) was also a trainer at the IFM (Institute for the Training of Sports Professions). He also played in NO youth teams and as a senior in Nîmes Gazélec. The evening was presented by Patrick Champ and Arnold Alfon-Lair, President and Treasurer respectively of the Garda Football Educators Association. Henri Emile (former member of the management of the French national team) was supposed to be the guest of honor, but due to lumbago, he had to refuse. He was soon replaced by Bernard Blacard. The former Nimes Olympique coach spoke for the first time about his coaching career: “My job is the director of a training center, not the coach of a professional team. » The one who took Nimes to Ligue 1 in 2018 also recalled the importance he attached to training centres: “ If there is in all clubs except Nimes, then there is a reason. » AEFG awarded Bernard Blacard with an honorary trophy. This meeting also provided an opportunity to pay tribute to Henri Noël, who passed away on October 17, 2020, through video recording and a moment of silence, and to Guillaume Duthwaite, former NO speaker and LFP delegate, who died in November. 2020.

OAC in search of a scorer. As we announced this Sunday (read here), Osama El Bakkal abruptly left the OAC and joined his former club Ecole Municipale Angloise de Football (R2), less than a year after his arrival in the Cévennes. While the Cévennes club has not been in contact with the matter so far, the still very optimistic Alesian general manager Philippe Mallaroni refuses to see it as a blow. “Last year was a good draw. We were very happy to welcome Ussama, but I don’t doubt for a second that we can find someone else who is just as effective and who will fit perfectly into our project.”, – he admits with a touch of bitterness, but paying tribute to the one who scored 12 goals in 15 matches for the KLA. Moreover, the Corsican does not hide his surprise: “You can be a National 3 club, first in your group with the ambition to move up to National 2 and have players who choose to stop to play R2. Surprisingly, but in the end such is the life of football. » It has “sport reasons”will also bring together “personal motives related to the family aspect” explain the attacker’s hasty departure. But let the supporters of the Cévennes do not worry. because “One thing is for sure, we will take someone to support Arnold Abelinti to keep the ambition very high”, promises Philip Mallaroni. And add: “Good can come out of evil. The world is not without a solution! »
