2011/12 End of Season report: Patrick Hinrichsen and SV Darmstadt 98 II

Patrick, seated far right.

REMAINS A CONTENDER in the Verbandsliga Group South is what Patrick Hinrichsens team has accomplished for the 2011/12 season. 

Patrick began the season in the player pool for the team and was hardly used or included in a game roster. This slowly changed as the season drew to a close. By the end of the season, the 21 yo midfielder saw playing time as a reserve and even as an occasional starter for his 6th tier team.

2011/12 End of Season report: Rob Gier and Ascot United FC

A rare photo of Rob in Ascot United kit!
Less than a middling team, is how one can describe Rob Gier's Ascot United last season. It survived a bad campaign season and is ready to begin climbing the table for the 2012/13 season.

It is important to note that Rob was away from the team for more than half a season either from supporting the Azkals in its FIFA friendly games, the AFC Challenge Cup campaign where he effectively was the Captain of the team and led the Philippines to its highest ever major tournament results(a 3rd place finish as an underdog team all the way), or because of injury, suffered in the Los Angeles Galaxy vs Azkals exhibition game. 

IN PICTURES! Training camp for our European based players.

Stephan Schröck is fitting in well with his new team mates as they undergo training camp in Bavaria.

TSG 1899 Hoffenheim is a newer 1.Bundesliga club who finished 11th in the 18 team German premier league for the 2011/12 season. They finished with a 10-11-13 record with 41 goals scored and 47 goals allowed. Clearly there is a need on both offense and defense. From a article the team management is currently aiming for a 6th place finish at the very most but conceded any position from 10th place is a step in the right direction. Surely Stephan will be of great use for the team.

This article is actually a post by a member named "bakdrap". He has been a member since Dec 2010 and is based in Myanmar hence his first person account. To any true blue Philippine footy fan, the game, even if "watched" through was a devastating and heartbreaking event. We want explanations, now we have a first person account.
