Final standings for our youth sides
BILAN - Saturday, May 16, 2020 - 17:00
With the rest of the season called off, let's look back over the performances of our Academy sides in 2019-2020.
The Reserves were once again in the National 3 division this season. The Girondins ended the season in 7th place, with middling stats of 7 draws, 5 wins and 5 defeats. ,The team was on a positive run of form towards the end, and finished with a draw.
The Ladies reserves finished the season in 5th place, after a decent campaign.
The U19 Nationals ended the season in tenth place, in a fiercely competitive division.
Things were a little different for the U19 Ladies. The season is split into two phases, starting with an initial group of five teams. Each team plays the other four teams in the group twice. Over the course of those 8 matches, the Girondines racked up 18 points to finish top of the group. That saw them qualify for the second phase of the league season, which was cut short after just five matches.
All told, it was a good season for the U17 Nationals, who finished 4th in a league of 14 teams. With ten wins from twenty games, the boys put in a good showing.
The U17 Regionals, meanwhile, had an excellent campaign. They finished joint first with Pau FC, although Pau's superior goal difference saw them awarded the title.
The situation was much the same for the U16s, finishing in joint second with Mérignac Arlac (21 points each).
