On Saturday, the Coastal Boys host the Sint-Truiden of Bernd Hollerbach and former KVO (assistant) coach Markus Pflanz in their own Diaz Arena.
The Jugglers started the competition hesitantly with 3 in 12. With Union, Kortrijk, Gent and Anderlecht, the program was not exactly a piece of cake. Despite the heavy schedule, the Limburgers picked up a point each time against Union, Gent and Kortrijk. Against Anderlecht, they lost without a chance by 0-3.
Hollerbach's team wants to play a quiet season with some outliers against the top teams in our domestic league. With Kaya (Ingolstadt), Dumont (Standard), Coppens (Duisburg), Bocat (Mouscron), Fabinho (Benfica), Boya (Antwerp) and Bruno (Gent), the team gained a lot of experience and talent. Buatu and Lucas returned to the Limburg heimat after a rental. On the other hand, with Klauss, Lavalée and Pius a number of familiar names left.
On game day 4, Sint-Truiden lost to Anderlecht with the following team: Schmidt, Al, Leistner, Bauer, Hashioka, Boya, Brüls, Koita, Bruno and Hayashi. Kagawa, Van Dessel, Janssens fell in. Christian Brüls escaped a red card after a wet kick on Verschaeren. Hayashi scored the only two Jersey goals so far but he is out for a few weeks so will not travel to Ostend.
Last season, the meeting between the Coastal Boys and the Canaries ended on a spectacle score.
