Here we go: TSV Altenstadt and FC Wildsteig/Rottenbuch are starting the season in district 4. Key positions have been filled in both teams.
District – After the league reform, the three district league teams from the old district of Schongau all play in Group 4, in which the battle for points begins this weekend.
TSV Peiting - last season's runners-up is one of the favorites - will not start until a week later.
The home game against FC Penzing planned for Saturday was postponed at the request of the guests and will be played on October 5th.
The name “Schmitt” and TSV Altenstadt – they have been inseparable for the past few years.
That will change next season.
The brothers Simon and Christoph Schmitt left their home club to face a new challenge with the district league team SV Raisting.
"Christoph had been certain for a long time that he would leave, but Simon's move came as a surprise to us," explained Daniel Hindelang, who succeeded Christoph Schmitt as coach.
With goalkeeper Alex Traxl, who will step back, TSV lost another veteran.
Max Gast from the second set moves between the posts for him.
Meanwhile, a returnee should pull the playful strings on the pitch.
Robert Kanzler, who has led FC Wildsteig/Rottenbuch to two consecutive promotions as player-coach in the past two seasons, will play for his old club again.
In addition, Dominik Streit returned from his studies in the USA.
Simon Reich and Mario Stegbauer moved up from the second set.
Two newcomers from outside, on the other hand, will not be able to play at TSV until next year because they were banned by the releasing club.
"We have a good squad, but it's not that big.
Not much can happen,” says Hindelang, who was very satisfied with the preparation: “It went well, the boys are doing well, only the consistency is still missing.”
By the way: everything from the region is also available in our regular Schongau newsletter.
And in our Weilheim-Penzberg newsletter.
On Sunday (6 p.m.) the Altenstadters will play against league newcomers SV Unterdiessen.
“Between is not an easy patch.
They come through the fight and will start with a lot of promotion euphoria”, Hindelang expects a difficult test for his team.
On top of that, TSV is plagued by some injury worries, as playmaker Yasin Akcakaya, among others, is out.
To make matters worse, Simon Schmitt will be getting married the day before and all of his old team has been invited to the wedding.
"We wanted to move the game, but Unterdiessen only agreed to a postponement to the early evening," says Hindelang, who is nevertheless hoping for a successful start to the season in order to lay the foundation for getting a place in the promotion round.
FC Wildsteig/Rottenbuch starts against FT Jahn Landsberg
The break for the FC Wildsteig/Rottenbuch players after the successful promotion relegation was very short at two weeks.
However, the newcomer in the district league 4 accepted that without complaint.
"We had an average of 30 people from the first and second team in training, and the lads did a great job," reports Fabian Lindauer, who is now training the promoted team together with player coach Martin Hennebach (who came from the state league, FC Garmisch-Partenkirchen).

The duo succeeded Robert Kanzler, who announced his departure after two promotions in a row in order to play again for his hometown club TSV Altenstadt.
With striker Roman Trainer, who switched to TSV Murnau, who had been promoted to the district league, FC had to put up with another important departure.
In addition, veteran Christian Engelniederhammer stopped.
"Of course, the three hurt us," says Lindauer, who also got two more experienced players.
Sepp Noder is back for his old club after a football break, and Hennebach is also coming along.
Both assets "we need for our young squad," said Lindauer.
According to the coach, the preparation went “very well, and the level of fitness is also good”.
So the coach sees FC prepared for the home game on Sunday (3 p.m.) against FT Jahn Landsberg.
The opponent "we also know from the district class a few years ago, that's going to be a real indicator," says Lindauer.
He hopes that his squad can convert the promotion euphoria into points.
Although he doesn't want to rule out setbacks after two successful seasons.
"Maybe we'll have to learn the hard way this season," Lindauer speculates.
If the targeted relegation doesn't work out, the FC coach hopes to be able to achieve the second goal of the season.
"We want to further develop our young people," says Lindauer.
