After Charles Vanhoutte last week, there is another academy player from Cercle who has now played in 50 matches with the first team. Thibo Somers (22) was in the starting eleven for the Groen-Zwart in the 1-2 victory against STVV and therefore had something extra to celebrate in addition to the win. Congratulations!
50 matches in Green and Black for academy product Thibo Somers!
You will find it hard to find a player who represents the Groen-Zwart more than Thibo Somers. Thibo has been proudly playing for Cercle for more than 15 years. After he signed his first professional contract with Cercle in 2019, that contract was extended last year, together with those of Robbe Decostere and Charles Vanhoutte, until 2023.
Just like Charles Vanhoutte, Thibo Somers is also a past winner of the Pop poll, run by the supporters' group d'Echte. Two seasons ago Somers won with his love for Cercle, beating out Giulian Biancone and Stef Peeters.
This season, Thibo has already played 14 times for Cercle and scored 3 times.
