Diversity is given at JFG Zwieseler Winkel simply because many parents’ clubs have joined forces in youth work. However, the term in youth category D has a completely different meaning: in addition to German children, many boys and girls whose parents come from nine other countries around the world play here.
In addition to well-known countries such as Syria and Ukraine, young people have ancestors in Uganda, Romania, Thailand, Albania, Serbia, Canada and Colombia. The D2 team coach, Moses Katarega, is also from Uganda and is fluent in several languages. “Sometimes understanding in the parent group is not easy. But in the end everything always works out as it should. And the best thing is to see that football brings children together, that friendships are made and that you can make a great contribution to integration, “says the D1 coach Marcel Buchinger.
In terms of sports, things went really well for young D in the hall when they narrowly lost in the semi-finals of the district championship, but they were happy with the third place.
Other JFG teams are also successful. The U15 teams are looking forward to the fall tournament. The C1 boys of coach Michael Kolpel lead the Deggendorf district class and the C2 squad of Florian Lemberger and Tobias Irschina in the intermediate forest group. Young Paul Schrödinger finished fourth in the Bavarian Forest District Championship (we reported it). Young B, coached by Tobias Berndl and Stefan Pscheidt, would like to attack in the Freyung regional league.
