Westerlo and coach Peeters: an excellent commitment

Bobke Peeters! Bobke Peeters! “In the précorona period, this name regularly rolled out of everyone’s mouth. And rightly so! Our immensely popular coach has been at the head of our Kemphanen for three years and that was celebrated appropriately today.

In his first period with our club, he kept us in the highest class on the last matchday. Last season were the best of the class with offensive and good football. Unfortunately, the format was still set up in such a way that we had to see to it that both the third and fifth clubs were allowed to promovate to he first division. Must be unique in the world!

We started this campaign with fresh courage until corona came. Just a dip, but slowly we come back to the surface. The merit of our coach and his hardworking staff who put our core focus on a daily basis. Every core player is important. Even if you fall beside the core, there is always a next time and then you have to be ready. You know, our slogan AND ALL TOGETHER!

We have the coach and his staff, we have the players, we have the qualities, we have to believe because we have one mission this season: to be among the first two!
