With the entry of the three National 2 clubs (Sporting club Toulon, Hyères 83 football club and star Fréjus/Saint-Raphaël), six representatives from Var were involved in the draw for the fourth round of the Coupe de France, organized Thursday evening on the side of the Mediterranean league. And we can say that the qualification remains playable.
An example? The three representatives of the Gulf of Saint-Tropez, namely the Union sportive tropézienne, the Sporting club cogolinois Cogolin and the Football club of Ramatuelle, have real chances of qualification.
In particular Petit Poucet varois, SC Cogolin (Departmental 1), who can believe it, with the reception of FC Luynes promoted to Regional 1 the weekend of September 24 and 25.
Complicated for the US Saint-Tropez
« If we can make history by reaching the sixth round, we are not going to deprive ourselves of it, confided the coach Damien Fresia, at the end of the ceremony. Last season, we eliminated Mandelieu, before falling to AS Cannes. It’s interesting to rub shoulders with opponents of such caliber. But our fine run had also cost us points in the championship. «
It will be just as complicated for the neighbor of the US Saint-Tropez (R2), with a perilous trip to Mandelieu (National 3). It will be necessary to achieve the feat to continue the road.
Everything remains open for FC Ramatuelle of Cyril Cauvière, who will travel to Peymeinade (D1) who defeated the Gardia club in the previous round (1-0). « I would have liked to take a big one (a team of N3 or N2) with us, says Cauvière, who was already dreaming of a » huge party » home.
« For the players, the objective was initially to reach the fourth round to have the jerseys so it’s done, he continues. At club level, the idea is to go as far as possible to store a collective experience. This is the second time in club history that we have reached the fourth round.«
