On Thursday afternoon, Cercle won a friendly against Virton 4-1. Hotic, Vanhoutte, Braem and Velkovski scored for the Groen-Zwart.
Just before kick-off, Dino Hotic was awarded the Pop-poll by a delegation from the supporters' association d'Echte, having been named the player of the season.
At the start of the second half, Cercle immediately were looking for more goals. This happened fairly quickly when Vanhoutte popped up at the far post and was able to turn in a cross from Decostere, making it 2-0. Cercle really had things under control, but still would concede a goal to Virton, after Axel Vitris curled the ball nicely past Langenbick into goal, 2-1.
It was thus a nice victory to deliver a good end to a great season for Cercle. On Friday the players and staff members will be on break until the beginning of June.
