The 'Association des Anciens Girondins' (the Club's Association for former players) was founded in 1964, with the club passing through a turbulent period in terms of performances and results. Former club players came together in a spirit of soildarity which has lasted for over 40 years. The aim of the association is to bring together players and directors under the banner of the club which they hold dear, the club which they had the honour and pleasure of representing. The 'Anciens' are an integral part of the Football Club des Girondins de Bordeaux, a key contributor to our identity.
With well over 40 years of history, the association includes 130 members who come together several times a year for meetings, dinners, gala matches and testimonials. The association is governed by a board of 11 members, elected at the ordinary and extraordinary General Meeting of the Anciens Girondins association held on 10/09/05:
Marius Trésor was one of the greatest defenders the game has ever seen, and now serves as the President of the Club des Anciens. He works hard throughout the year to coordinate the association's business, and to make sure the Girondins shine in testimonial matches.
"The Association des Anciens Girondins provides a link between the different generations of players and directors who have shaped, or are still shaping, the history of the Girondins de Bordeaux. Our goal is to bring together as many players as possible who have worn our famous shirt, for gala and testimonial matches.
In the last few months, Rolland Guillas and Christian Montes have worked tirelessly to organise numerous gala matches which have been of excellent quality. This season, our aim is to increase the number of these occasions, to promote the reputation of the Anciens and the whole club.
I would like to appeal to a few people. Firstly, to all former players and directors who are not members of the association: join us, we promise you'll have a great time on and off the pitch. Secondly, I would like to appeal particularly to players living in the south-west of France, to encourage them very strongly to get involved with the Association's events and matches. Vive les Girondins ! "
