Secretary Jean-Marc Descazeaux then spoke about the journey of the youth teams, members of the Entente du Haut-Béarn. Alongside players from 6 clubs, the U 16 have changed during the season to obtain 3 wins and 1 draw, which augurs well for the future. Very good season for the U 18 which had 6 players from Aramits: first in their group, they were eliminated by Massy in the round of 16 of the French championship. As for the U 19, they have 5 wins and 7 losses.
Record squad for rugby school
Under the leadership of Gaël Artçanuthurry, well assisted by Lucette, the rugby school posted a record number of 53 licensees. Aged 8 to 15, they won 7 tournaments while Charline Moretti reached the Pôle Espoirs de Pau. Note in this regard the role played by parents in facilitating travel.
“After the Gironde last season, we will visit Lot-et-Garonne in 2022-2023”. Following this geographical remark, Thierry Bonne was delighted that supervised by a new staff, the seniors have around fifty licensees for the season which will open at the end of August with 2 friendly matches in Morlaàs and Lourdes.
Change at the office
A season marked by several changes at the office level: Maurice Miramon will lend a hand as a simple volunteer, Jean-Marc Descazeaux becomes assistant to secretary Luc Sagouspe while Jean-Michel Larbiou will be at the treasury of that of Bénédicte Daudignon also becoming vice-president.
A greatly appreciated turn of events was then to occur with the arrival of deputy Iñaki Echaniz. “The values of rugby are dear to me,” he said to warm applause before Jean-Michel Larbiou presented a balanced financial statement. It only remained for Lydie Althapé, mayor of Lanne-en-Barétous, and Jean-François Casaux, deputy mayor of Aramits, to close the session with particularly complimentary remarks.
