Because several of the girls will leave during the next few years, David Desloges wished to make the full of recruits in the short and medium term.
The head coach of the women’s soccer program the Red and Gold of the University of Laval has made a first step in this direction, magnetising six recruits for next season.
“There are little girls who went to Laval over the past two years and it is necessary to provide for the renewal in the coming seasons, told Desloges, who saw his first recruit after taking the guides from the team in may of last year, when most of the graduates had stopped their choice. There are a lot of good girls who will go out of Garneau and of Sainte-Foy over the next two years, several of which will experience beautiful university careers. It is perfect for us because we have specific needs and for the recruits who will have the opportunity to get a real opportunity to quickly. We want to keep all the good girls of Quebec at home. Last year, some had left due to the uncertainty.”
Desloges placed a hand on the guardian, Anne-Marie Laroche, the middle of the field Geneviève Girard and the defender side by Arianne Langlois, Elks Garneau; the defenders Genevieve Beauchemin and Frédérique Lemay, the Dynamics of Sainte-Foy; and the ombudsman, Ema-Eve Lecompte, of the Nordiques Lionel-Groulx.
“All the girls that we had targeted, opted for the Red and Gold, he said. Arianne was very much in demand. Three of these girls have evolved in the PLSQ (Premiere Ligue de soccer du Québec) last summer. They have played at a high level. Our last season was not a factor in the recruitment process. We talked of the future and not the past.”
For its second season at the helm of the team after succeeding Helder Duarte, who died suddenly in the winter of 2019, Desloges believes that it will rely on a workforce that will be competitive. Third in the standings last year, the Red and Gold has been sidelined in the semi-final by the Carabins of the Université de Montréal, who have reached the canadian championship, with the residents of the UQAM in the provincial final.
“Even if our new recruits will have real opportunities to play quickly, we will nevertheless rely on a group that is mature and deep, stressed Desloges. The main nucleus will be back. We have advanced this winter when the season interior and everything is more clear to everyone. We will be better equipped for success next year.”
The end of the activities of the RSEQ march 13, due to the COVID-19 has not upset the season since the Red and Gold no longer had a match to play at the time of the suspension and the playoffs had been discontinued this year. Desloges wished now that the summer season in the civilian network is not completely cancelled.
