Papin at the Vélodrome, a Eurelian against Bayern, a former Rambolitain winner of the Coupe de France … the echoes of football in Eure-et-Loir

Jean-Pierre Papin, the coach of a C’Chartres Football who has nothing left to play because National League 2 is about to end, missed training last weekend. He had been invited by Pablo Longoria, president of OM, to participate in the return semi-final of the Europa League Conference Marseille-Feyenoord Rotterdam on Thursday 5 April. From the grandstand of the Vélodrome, the former striker of the Marseille club, icon of Canebière, saw the Olympians being kept in check 0-0 and being eliminated. These Marseillais would have needed a striker of his caliber to qualify …

Millot, baptism at the Allianz Arena

A decisive passer-by a week earlier in his Stuttgart side’s 1-1 draw against Wolfsburg, Lucéen Enzo Millot made his first experience at Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena on Sunday 8 May. But the midfielder this time remained on the bench when the VfB won a precious 2-2 in the race to stay on the lawn of the German champion.

Blas, from Rambouillet to victory in the Coupe de France

As captain of Nantes, 1-0 winner of the final against Nice, Ludovic Blas had the honor of being the first to lift the Coupe de France this Saturday 7 May at the Stade de France. Alongside FC Rambouillet, we witnessed the scene with emotion and pride. The Yvelines club have had the midfielder in their ranks for four seasons. The Colombes (Hauts-de-Seine) native landed there at the age of 7 before leaving at 11 for Montrouge following a professional transfer from his father. Finalist of the 2009 League Cup, with Guingamp, on Saturday he won his first trophy. And if he stays in Nantes, he will discover the European Cup, the Europa League, next season.

Chartres U13 in the final

C’Chartres Football will field a team in the national final of Festifoot U13, on 3 June, in Capbreton (Landes). The Chartraines qualified on Saturday 7 May by winning the regional final in Châteauroux (Indre). Among the boys, the competition was won by Saint-Cyr-sur-Loire while the Euréliens made a group shot: CS Mainvilliers 3rd, C’Chartres Football 4th and Entente Nogent-le-Rotrou / Authon-du- Why 6th.

Versailles will play in Saint-Gratien

Leader of group A of National 2, that of C’Chartres Football, and guaranteed to join the national team with three days to go, Versailles are already preparing for next season. The club, whose main stadium has no lighting, has found a base. He will play his home games in Saint-Gratien, about 30 km from Versailles. It will necessarily be at a disadvantage when it will be necessary to be strong to avoid a promised six-team descent, as required by the reform of Ligue 1 and Ligue 2.

From National 2 to Regional 3: here is the ranking of Eure-et-Loir scorers

Ettori keeps Tours FC

Promoted this weekend after a 3-3 draw against FC Drouais, Tours FC sportingly won the right to play in N3 next season. It remains to be seen whether this time it will have the right to board, after the ban on boarding the N2 in 2020 and the administrative relegation in 2021. Meanwhile, the commercial court has accepted the recovery plan proposed by owner Jean-Marc Ettori, who he promised to settle the debts (4 million euros) in ten years. The takeover bid by former club player Omar Da Fonseca was therefore rejected.

The farewell of Goncalves

Chartrain Anthony Gonçalves, at the end of his contract, greeted the crowd at the Ornano stadium in Caen, where his team won 2-0 against Quevilly on the penultimate matchday of Ligue 2, this Saturday 7 May. It will be a start, but not a stop. At 36, the former Strasbourg midfielder has already indicated that he wants to continue his professional career. Where, it is worth seeing … Even if someone already sends him to Laval, his training company, back in Ligue 2 at the beginning of the school year, nothing is done. But the C’Chartres Football option seems more hypothetical.

Five changes at the national level?

As with the pros, next season there should be five possible changes in all eleven national leagues. The proposal comes from the executive committee of the French federation, which wishes to adapt its regulations to a request from the International Football Association Board (IFBA). National 2 and National 3 will be interested if this development is adopted during the general assembly of the French federation. In these divisions that Chartres evolves into, clubs with a large workforce would necessarily have an advantage. To think about preparing for next season …
