Strullendorf – FC strullendorf has written a thick chapter in the history of the club in the past season of the fubball-landesliga nordost. Under the coaches mario herrmannsdorfer and rene finnemann the strullendorfer missed as table last (25 points, 44:73 goals) the class preservation clearly. Now there is to be a new beginning in the district class.
Sports director richard rodel takes stock: "we started the series with the goal of staying in the league. We clearly missed this target, which is why we are naturally all disappointed. The squad was put together according to the ideas of the two coaches. He was in any case suitable for the national league." But the season stood from the beginning under an unlucky star. Rene finnemann, who was supposed to drive the team with his routine, suffered a serious knee injury in the cup match against memmelsdorf and was out for almost the entire round. In addition, manuel ostriz and tobias mirror. Then daniel probst also withdrew due to injury and professional commitment back. Sven wenzel injured his head badly and dominik oppelt had health problems. Therefore the FCS engaged philipp and heiko felsheim afterwards. Coach herrmannsdorfer helped out as a player.
The lack of injuries contributed to the fact that the team never found a real unity. So the sporting success was missing, although relatively many games were always lost with only one goal difference. Rodel: "so we were to be found from the beginning always in the table cellar, which gnawed naturally at the morale. We achieved respectable successes, such as the draw with the promoted team in neudrossenfeld, the away victories in vach and pegnitz and, above all, the convincing home victory over our neighbors pettstadt. But all in all we just didn't score enough."
The important first game after the winter break against our rivals burgkunstadt was supposed to be won, but it was only enough for a 2-2 draw. There followed another draw at derghaspor nurnberg. But then there were the games against the top teams "which we all lost", so rodel. "Here, however, we also had to bring in points, but it lacked before the goal simply the kaltschnauzigkeit." In addition, the squad was depleted by new long-term injuries. The goals came from stefan karl, maximilian vetter and david kroak. "In the last eight games we even had to rely on substitutes from the second team in order to be able to play with eleven players", explains the sports director. "We couldn't use any regular players from our reserve team, because this team still needed points to stay in the league. Thus the relegation became apparent early on, and even the surprise victory in burgkunstadt did nothing to change that."
With a complete squad the FCS had realized the class preservation, is rodel sure. In the decisive moments have the team a "real leader", a pronounced goal scorer was missing. Rodel: "relegation is always bitter, especially since the squad is scattering to the four winds. We responsible persons must look however forward and convert our intention, the new start, into the act. Our first team will start in the new series in the district class. We are again relying primarily on our own players."
The club must be restored to health and put on a new footing. "We hope for our members, supporters, advertising partners and sponsors", means rodel. "We are sure to make the right step in the right direction." In the last few years, no one had really noticed the landesliga anymore. This starts with the number of spectators and continues with the number of visitors to the sports home. Rodel: "in addition, due to the ever-increasing demands of the BFV, cooperation in the club leaves a lot to be desired, not to mention the annual financial adventure. It should not be the playing class that is decisive, but the continued existence of the club."
