Club NXT (U21) open the season with a 0-8 win at Charleroi

Club NXT (U21) started the new season with an away match against Charleroi. The youngsters hadn't lost a single preseason match, so they were eager to get the new season on the way. Coach Rik De Mil, with new T2 Steve Colpaert by his side, could count first team players Perez, Sandra and Shinton.

At the old stadium of Olympic Charleroi, on a pitch with poor conditions, Club NXT started the match lively. Sagna was elusive for the home defence and created a few early chances. The first one sailed just over the crossbar, but a few minutes later he finished off a great pass by Audoor. Shortly after Sagna assisted Sandra who coolly slotted home. The game was just ten minutes underway. Perez wanted in on the fun, but he was stopped by two defenders who returned just in time. Mondele and Servais tried their luck as well, but their shots were off target. On the half-hour mark Charleroi created their first chance, but Bokoum scuffed his finish just wide.

Then it was Club again. First Perez headed a cross over the target, but Sagna scored his second of the evening after a mistake in the Charleroi defence. On the stroke of half-time Club NXT was awarded a free-kick just outside the penalty box ... blasted into the top corner by Servais: 0-4 at the break!

More of the same after the break with Club NXT carving out chance after chance. Perez headed over the target again and then missed in front of an empty goal. But the forward was rewarded for his hard work. When De Roeve tried to sent substitute Aelterman through on goal, a handball by a Charleroi defender meant a penalty kick for the blue and black. Perez behind the ball and he fired it in. Just like Aelterman, Vermant and Engels had come on enthusiastically. Vermant headed in on a cross by Aelterman, before Shinton did great to keep out a free-kick from Charleroi.

In the closing minutes Spileers and Fofana came on as well. The latter almost thanked the coach with a goal, but the goalkeeper was equal to his effort. Club NXT kept going forward and saw their energy resulting in two more goals. Vermant lobbed the ball over the goalkeeper to score his second and in the closing minutes of the match Perez broke through the home defence and played the ball into the path of Engels who made it eight.

A great match for Club NXT to get their season started!
