Philibert first. The young central defender yesterday celebrated his first appearance with the Nîmes Olympique professionals at the Sébastien Charléty stadium. Reached 85me Minute instead of the Japanese Naomichi Ueda, the young 19-year-old Crocodile could not avoid the defeat of his team.

Proust in Charléty. The president of Nîmes Métropole was in the capital on Tuesday for the Europe / International convention of Republicans. Franck Proust took the opportunity to attend the match between Paris FC and Nîmes Olympique, along with Reda Hammache and Jean-Jacques Bourdin.

OAC

The OAC meets. As part of the federal educational program, all Olympique d’Alès en Cévennes licensees, from U6 to the senior group of National 3, are invited to meet this Wednesday evening. The event organized at the Espace Jules-Cazot should allow all members of the club to get to know each other and create links between the teams of the different categories, including women. In addition, before moving to Narbonne this Sunday (3:00 pm) as part of the 4th day of N3, Stéphane Saurat’s men will meet their rival for the 4th round of the French Cup after having pulverized the Héraultais of the US Mauguio last Saturday (1-9). If the draw has already been held in certain regions, it will only take place this Thursday at 12 noon for Occitania. A member of Group C in which Aigues-Mortes also appears, the OAC could inherit AS Béziers (N2), or a much more forgiving draw with US Vielleveyrac (D4). The meetings will take place the first weekend in October (Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd).

Tennis

Bonzi: is the match too much? Winner of fifteen consecutive games in the last three weeks, Benjamin Bonzi has embarked on a true marathon crowned with success. With three titles at stake and a place in 61st place in the world, Anduzien were in full confidence when they left France for Astana, Kazakhstan. On the menu, an ATP 250 tournament, a cut above the Challengers that he won. For their entry into the race, the Gardois faced off against Finnish hopeful Emil Ruusuvuori, a rival Bonzi had beaten in Round 1 at Roland Garros 2020. But sick and diminished, Anduzien couldn’t fully defend their chances. He was finally forced to fold after conceding the 1st set 6/2.
