GAS Zweite (Second Team) was founded in January 2015 out of the ruins of GOS or German Old Stars, a well-intended but relatively short-lived initiative.
It has been put upon returning ex-GAS Coach Z (as most “Ueberlebenskuenstler” he only goes by one Letter) to assemble a mix of experienced yet highly-motivated members with those who’ve been left disillusioned by the incredible speed and skill-level of the GAS Erste.
He was soon joined by Frank”The Tank” Reitermann to share the burden of team selection and most importantly trying to get proper replies in terms of availability from the team members, which despite all the fancy ways of modern communication seems more difficult than one might think.
It was decided to sign the team up for the EFL Qualifying Division, which proved to be an inspired choice by the management.
Instead of being the new whipping boys of the league we managed to hold our own more than respectably and will most probably finish the season right in the middle of the pack on 4th spot.
We can truly say that so far this team has been a great success on and off the pitch, and we’ve already managed to establish a regular base of players and are never really struggling for numbers.
Nevertheless the more the merrier as they say, new players are always welcome to join us as we try to ensure proper playing time for everyone.
As the current season has already come to an end, we will continue with a couple of pre-season friendlies starting July 11th with a derby against our Erste.
Zicke Zacke Zicke Zacke!
