You’ll have to believe

Between a team playing in R1 and another professional, there is a world. As proof, the Cholet reserve is developing at the same level as the clubs of Sables-d’Olonne, in R1.

After all, FCOC is taking this draw as a chance. The thing about organizing a big party! And to look good.

We always have the ambition to go further. It’s certainly not the best draw, but to progress you have to be able to hit harder. A cup success is possible, we saw that in the previous round. We will condition ourselves for that, even if it will not be easy to catch them.

Kevin Dommangeau, FCOC co-coach.

FCOC – SO Cholet, Sunday 16 October at 15, Albert-Robin stadium.
