When the round ball was successful at the Frigoulou stadium

Flag bearer on several occasions for amateur football in the Gard region, even in the region, in the years 1962-1982 with F. Pallade, C. Souche, R. De Malavas, L. Vincent, H. and P. Merle, P.

Unfortunately, since the 2014 season and for various reasons, the Chemists have sunk into the depths of the district championships where they evolved in the most complete anonymity before sinking definitively two years ago. So the supporters had become scarce since 2012 and were less and less numerous whereas before, as confirmed by our 2007 photo of the time of the Comte-Maouche duo, the stands of the stadium on the road to Célas (more than 250 people) were sold out at each of the pennant team’s performances.
