Monday 13 March from 18.30h onwards, the official draw for the 2nd KDB Cup will take place in Drongen. Afterwards, Tom Boudeweel (VRT-Sporza) talks to a few football stars about the importance of youth football and how difficult or easy it is to get through to the A-core. At his table are:
Hannes Van Der Bruggen (KV Kortrijk and ex-KAA Gent): moved from the youth academies of Burst and FC Dender to AA Gent. The ex-youth international moved to KV Kortrijk last winter.
Olivier Deschacht (RSC Anderlecht): via the youth of AA Gent and Lokeren he ended up in Brussels and developed into a fixed value with Anderlecht
Herman Brusselmans (writer, ex-VW Hamme and Lokeren): was a talented left winger in the 70s. But he preferred the literary path to the glitter and glamour of his favourite ball sport.
Joric Vandendriessche (KBVB, U15 coach): together with his assistant Gaëtan Englebert, he works with the talents of the future and prepares the potential Red Devils for the big work.
The event takes place in the canteen of KVE Drongen, Sint-Gerolfstraat, 16, 9031 Drongen-Ghent and is free to attend.
