A super attack, a “battery” of unders still to be completed, and the need for renewal between the posts, especially after the “forced” farewell of the veteran Murriero. The activity of the new Oltrepo Fbc (born from the merger between Varzi and Broni) is now starting to get to the heart, which will play the home league matches at the via Ferrini facility in Broni and will have the red and white colors (first jersey). The ds Nicola Raso is working to complete the staff by mid-July, when the new squad for the 2022-2023 season should be defined and will be under the orders of Mr. Omar Albertini and his staff.
The team will be in training camp from 1st to 14th August, in Val Seriana, in Rovetta (“GP Marinoni” sports center). Two friendlies have already been set: on 10 August Oltrepo A-Oltrepo and 14 Oltrepo-Vertovese.
We said, a super attack. If last year Varzi had leveraged by focusing on the ballistic and construction skills of only Grasso and Pizzini, with the addition of the young Citterio, this year there will even be 7 players available to Mr. Albertini: the confirmed Grasso ( 18 goals last year), Citterio (6) and the young Mancinelli (from junior ex Varzi), and the new faces of Pedrabissi (21 goals with Sestese), Zani (7 goals with Sancolombano) and Zanellati (for him it is of a return), 16 goals with Robbio. Alessandro Paparella (2001) coming from Leon (3 goals in Serie D) is also about to wear the overseas shirt.
On the goalkeepers front, the Oltrepo was orphaned by Marco Murriero. On the threshold of 40 years and a job that does not allow him to train in the afternoon, the “Albatros” was forced to abdicate and from today he is officially on the market, looking for a new team. The three new goalkeepers (two for the first team and one for the Juniors) will be young and in the under bracket. The defense will also focus on the certainties of Gnaziri, Scarcella and Calloni, as well as June (defensive winger but also usable in midfield), with the novelties represented by the new Negri faces (2000) from Pavia and Daniel Selmo (2003) close to the signing (from the Primavera del Renate). The department will be completed by the arrival of an experienced player and some other under. The midfield will be led by captain Rebuscini. Beside him the certainty Iervolino, in addition to the new under, Casiroli (from the Pavese Academy). Here, too, an expert and a few (external) unders are missing. –
