Many foreign players lacked rooting in the community, which is why there was unfortunately little interest in the team, “says SVR board member Gerhard Schiermeier. While the first team since 2014 in the Regionalliga West at the start, the U 23 has risen to the sechstklassige Westfalenliga, thus playing three classes higher than the “third”.

In the league, the Alemannia won four times in a row and climbed to third place in the table.
Second leg before the first leg: Bastian Muller is fit again at SC Verl. The 26-year-old defender came back on Saturday in the match against his former club Fortuna Dusseldorf U23 (0: 1) already used after he had previously suspended because of flu with the training.

Starting shot for action “map godfathers”: For the game against Rot-Weib Oberhausen on April 7, promoted KFC Uerdingen has now launched the action “Kartenpaten”.

However, the cards may not be resold, but only released as part of an action free of charge – for example, as an event for their own employees, as a customer campaign or as a gift to schools, clubs or institutions.
