BELGIUM: R Société Sportive Salmienne (1924-2017) / RCS de la Salm (2017-)

Champ des Dames, Salmchâteau (RCS de la Salm, formerly RSS Salmienne)

Belgium, province: Luxembourg

21 IV 2017 / RSS Salmienne - US Sartoise 1-1 / Belgian Luxembourg, Provincial League 2C (= BE level 7)

Note: photos taken on the occasion of the last game ever of RSS Salmienne, matricule 555 and founded in 1915 under the name Salm-Union - the fouth-oldest football club of Belgian Luxembourg (after RSC Athusien, R Excelsior Virton, and R Standard FC Bouillon, not taking into account the province's oldest club R Jeunesse Arlonaise, the matricule of which was lost in the merger with FC Le Lorrain Arlon in 2010); Salmienne are merging with RCS Vielsalm to form RCS de la Salm. There were emotions all around, as, also on the side of US Sartoise, the manager - also former coach of Salmienne - and goalkeeper disputed their last game ever. Sadly for the latter, he had to concede a goal in the final seconds of the match (cp. photo 15).
