The bayernliga-fubballer usually travels to an away game in a friendly way. Whether by car or bus – the journey should be stress-free in order to be able to focus on the upcoming match in a rested state. Jogging to an away game like spvgg jahn forchheim (and back again at the end of the game) is unusual – and a clever invention by coach christian springer, who took the field as a pacesetter.
Sure, it was just a friendly match, and the distance to the SV buckenhofen field is not too far, just under six kilometers. Nevertheless, the endurance run had left its mark on the preparation phase, which was in any case a strenuous one.
The fact that the jahn only managed to beat the district league champions 4:2 is largely due to the following factors. "The guys were flat, lacked effervescence. But that’s normal in the preparation phase," says team manager, says team manager mesut kimiz. On the other hand: the SVB with its well-rehearsed team did not make it easy for the newly assembled jahn. "Buckenhofen was present and gave gas. Really strong", says kimiz.
