As every day from Monday to Friday, discover the essence of Gard sports news in a few pieces of information.

Olympic Nmes

It’s moving forward in defense† For the time being, it seems in defense that the transfer window of Nîmes Olympique is progressing best. Central defender Maël Durand de Gevigney comes from Versailles (N2). Among the nearly completed files is that of Moustapha Mbow. The Senegalese defender, who was out on loan for six months during the second part of the season, must first renew with Reims before being loaned again to the Crocos. He is in fact associated with the Champagne club until June 2023 and cannot be loaned out during his last contract year. Stade de Reims would normally have to extend it, which would lead to the extension of his loan to Nîmes for a year. As for Anthony Briancon and Pablo Martinez, talks about possible extensions should start after the championship ends. Angers would still be interested in bringing in the captain of Nîmes. One of the priorities of the recruitment cell that we have to find in the red jersey next season is called Thibaut Vargas, right in Châteauroux (N). His arrival is about to be arranged. In the middle, the club approached Thomas Mangani (35) at the end of his contract in Angers, but more clubs are on the way. Originally from Carpentras (Vaucluse), the midfielder is close to Pablo Martinez, whom he associated with SCO in the 2016/2017 season.

Lepaysant on the whistle† The last game of the Crocos season, Saturday at 7 p.m. at the Costières stadium against Bastia, will be whistled by Benjamin Lepaysant. It is the fourth time in his career that the 33-year-old man in black will lead a meeting of Nîmes Olympique. The first three games this season, each time at Costières, and the balance is in favor of the Gardois with two wins and one loss. On the orders of Mr. Lepaysant, the NO defeated Dijon (2-1) on the second day before the first game of the season at home and Nancy (2-1) just before the winter break. In contrast, Dunkirk won 1-0 at the beginning of February. During this game, Omarsson was ejected.

The U17s are opening. The 2021-22 season could well be that of all joys for the Alésiens. Pending the formalization of the pennant team turnout in National 2, the OAC U17s have already validated their ticket for the upper floor. Guaranteed to finish first in their group in Regional 1 (12 wins, seven draws and no losses), they are sure to progress to the national level. Mehdi Sidane’s players will be able to celebrate their promotion on Saturday at the Pierre-Pibarot Stadium, as they will play in the opening match of Alès – TFC II. It’s now up to the first team players to do what it takes, which is to beat Toulouse, take turns going up and the party will be complete.
