The managers of SV friesen, which plays in the state league, seem to have come to terms with the fact that they narrowly missed out on promotion to the fubball bavarian league. At least there has been a lot of planning behind the scenes in the last few weeks. With success.
Board member josef geiger has convinced five new players to put their shoes on the "grun-weiben" in the future cords. The main sponsor placed great emphasis on youthful elan and regional identification. The newcomers are all very young and just starting out on their careers.
Andreas baier, who has been eligible to play since april, fits this profile exactly. The 18-year-old has now decided to continue playing for SV friesen in the coming season.
Talents from the frankenwald
With andre munch (20/offensive midfield) from gifting and elias kocher (19/offensive midfielder) from geroldsgrun, two talents from the frankenwald were signed, who were last in the squad of the bavarian league relegated FC trogen. Although neither of the two players made a breakthrough there, their excellent training at the hof junior training center promises to be a great success. In any case, coach christoph boger is convinced that the duo is capable of development and has the prerequisites to play at a high level.
The same applies to carsten hahn (19/inside defender). He also earned his first spurs in the youth department of spvgg bayern hof before moving to FC burgkunstadt in the regional league last year drew. There he played almost every game for 90 minutes as a strong central defender with a strong header. The three new SV friesen youngsters study together at bayreuth university.
The coach is particularly excited about the fourth young player: michael kestel (attacking midfield) has joined the friesen team from kronach district class champion TSV weibenbrunn. The only 17-year-old gundelsdorfer, who is still allowed to play in the youth, is said to have not yet exhausted his usual talent and to be capable of much more than "just" playing playing in the district league. At SV friesen, he now wants to prove what he is really made of.
As already reported, marco fleibner (22/sturmer) is another new. After a year at TSV monchroden, the fast and tricky track and field forward from furth am berg returns to the "grun-weiben", where, according to his own statements, he always feels "pudelwohl" has felt. Goalkeeper nico angles and max partheymuller also joined the squad from the youth team.
With this blood-young quintet, the functionaries in friesen hope to be able to compensate for their painful departures. As is known, 25-goal man aleksander hurec moved to FC eintracht bamberg in the regional league. Johannes muller returned to his hometown club FC mitwitz and maurice koch is looking for a new challenge at FC redwitz after two successful years in friesen.
Painful – in the truest sense of the word – for the SV friesen, however, is the loss of captain frederic martin. The team leader was injured so severely in the relegation match against TSV garching that a cartilage injury will force him to take a break of at least twelve months.
By the way, coach christoph boger will be asking for his first training session next thursday.
