The Girondins took on SG Going on Wednesday afternoon, for their first pre-season friendly. Bordeaux thrashed the local team easily (0-12). This wasn't so much a match as a training session, such was the gulf between the two sides. But the Girondins showed great respect and took their opponents seriously until the very end. Smiles all round at the end, from our players and the amateurs.
The Girondins de Bordeaux unveiled some important changes to their Academy set-up yesterday.

The Girondins de Bordeaux are delighted to announce that Abdou Traoré has signed a new contract with the club. The Mali international has signed a deal which will keep him at the club until 2017. The No.7, who first arrived in Bordeaux in 2006, will thus become one of the Girondins' longest-serving players.
The Girondins' first match in their brand new stadium delivered just what the fans had hoped for: a victory! Diego Rolan, the last player to score at Chaban, also got the two first goals in the Nouveau Stade. Rolan scored twice in the 1st half (9' and 39'), before Bakar pulled one back for the visitors after the break (63'). The Girondins finish the season in sixth place, with the new stadium ready for next season. Bordeaux will find out if they have qualified for the Europa League next Saturday, depending on the result of the Coupe de France final.

This is another great addition to the squad, and we look forward to watching Fred continue his progress with the Girondins.
Before the final game of the season against Montpellier in the Nouveau Stade, the Girondins rounded off their travels for the season with a draw in Lyon.
