Mr. Markert, are you the last rock’n’roller??

Mr. markert, are you the last rock'n'roller??

Erwin markert recently found a new love: his love for the sea. Soon he will set off on a second cruise, with the destination as good as set. But before that, he has another mission to accomplish, one that he doesn’t know where the journey will take him. The 63-year-old has once again stepped in as an emergency helper at FC eibelstadt.

For no other club did markert embark on such a daring adventure for the third time. Twice it has already gone well, but will he be able to save the team as successor of the luckless karl-heinz zehnder also this time from the relegation from the district league? If not him, then who, seems to be the motto at the club. Markert is known as a tough dog, but what he demands is not primarily diligence or obedience, but passion for the cause, his cause, fubball. It was and is his elixir, his joy. 1978/79 he played 38 games in the second division with the wurzburger kickers (three goals).

What connects him with werner lorant? What does he think about today’s generation of players?? Why does he do this to himself again and again??

1.60 Meters of energy

2019 could succeed the rough throw. This is how "miss allie" met on monday evening at the bamberger basketball-bundesligaspiel against bremerhaven not only at the charity throw, but also wants to take off on other stages.

What many of the nearly 6,000 sports fans didn't know at the time: the petite luneburg girl has a promising future ahead of her. With a german-language album under her belt, she is touring the republic this year to "build up solid fan bases here and there". It already has one in the frankenland: around the staffelberg. As the winner of the hanns-seidel-foundation's young talent competition, she performed at "lieder auf banz" in july 2018 and inspired the visitors on the klosterberg as well as the tv viewers in august with honest and thus cheeky, sometimes snotty lyrics. Philipp gob from the event management team at brose was also drawn to the "little blonde" and booked them for a performance in the foyer and during the breaks in the brose arena.

As part of her germany tour, the singer/songwriter, who chats about everything except her burger name and age, has already recorded two sold-out concerts: both in april at the loffelder brewery on the fube of the staffelberg (12. And 13. April). Once again, she can be seen and heard in the bamberg area in november: on 2. November the 1.60 meter coarse energy bundle makes a guest appearance at the kulturboden in hallstadt.

Chairman only available for six months

Chairman only available for six months

Good response at the annual general meeting of the ATSV nordhalben: 57 eligible voters and some children and young people attended the meeting.
Chairman christian popp and his board of directors with the division managers reported on the past 24 months at the 737-member club. Since it is becoming increasingly difficult to run the association as a member without regular contact with the home town and no successor has been found, the chairman only stood for election for a transitional period of six months. The majority of the remaining board members, on the other hand, stood for re-election for the entire term of office.

Financial plus

Financially the association closed the last two years with a profit. Auditor heiko scherbel attested to exemplary and flawless cash management. Treasurer thomas daum and the board of directors were then unanimously discharged.
The reports of the divisions reflected a social tendency that shows less permanent commitment, but more individual use of club offers. There is a strong demand for children’s and youth sports lessons, and there is also a demand for trendy gymnastic sports. The recreational bowlers have grown, and classical gymnastics is back in the program. A new offer is "bodyshaping" available.
In contrast, the two performance divisions, sportschutzen and spielmannszug, operate on the fringes of the competitive and competitive-playing divisions, respectively. After three successful years, the volleyball department had to withdraw its women’s team due to a lack of players. There are currently no new recruits in the training program either.
The trampoline department, on the other hand, is at the limit of its capacity, reported department head margarete wunder-blinzler. It is looking for energetic support in training and competition work.

Chairman for half a year

At the new elections under the leadership of honorary chairman rudolf ruf, the previous board of directors and the club committee were largely re-elected. However, the association will have to look for a new first chairman within the next six months, as christian popp then wants to quit.
Newly appointed were ski department head jonas ruf, assessor tanja stumpf and cash auditor ralph stumpf.
The newly elected BLSV district chairman mario schmidt introduced himself for the first time at the second-largest club in the district. In his speech, he and mayor michael pohnlein pointed out various courses offered for club work at the association and intermunicipal level.

Mainleus: federal police have the perpetrators in their sights

Mainleus: federal police have the perpetrators in their sights

9.10 p.M., schrepfersmuhle parking lot in kleinziegenfelder valley: 200 "soccer fans" (all of them police students from bamberg) arrive in a fully occupied bus. They want to play an explosive deciding match in the waldstadion in weismain.

For the 200 officers of the bayreuth federal police department, who regularly attend such events, the "normal police support, roughing up is a routine operation. As it happens every weekend at football games in the federal republic of germany. Personal checks. Separate angry and violent fans from the peaceful ones. "Fishing" this is called in the jargon. The forces have no idea at this point that the game of football will soon become a minor matter.

"The officers taking part in the exercise do not know what to expect.", explains veit diettrich, who is responsible for public relations at the bayreuth federal police department.

Security concept: clear decision demanded

Security concept: clear decision demanded

"The problem is that some clubs don’t take the issue seriously. They have a responsibility to ensure the safety of the spectators in the stadium. It can not be that some clubs say: violence in fubball? Never heard!", said the CSU politician friedrich "sport bild plus". League president reinhard rauball also took the clubs to task once again before the members’ meeting on wednesday in frankfurt/main: "in my opinion, we need a clear decision and not a delay."

The exclusion of dynamo dresden from the cup, which was handed down by the DFB sports court on monday evening, lent additional explosiveness to the meeting. The judges of the german soccer federation saw the second division club as a repeat offender and knew no mercy. Reason for exclusion from cup competition next season was rioting at cup match in hannover late october.

At that time, the police had recorded a total of 41 offences. There were nine injuries and three arrests. Hannover 96 was sentenced to a fine of 70 000 euro. The sentence is "very understandable in view of the aggressive fubball chaotes in the fan rows of dynamo dresden. The decision shows that the DFB is not afraid of consistent punishments and drastic measures," said lower saxony’s interior minister uwe schunemann. Like his colleagues in office, the CDU politician is demanding that german soccer implement a new security concept.
