RSCA Futures: mid-season recap

After 16 matchdays, RSCA Futures are now entitled to a winter break without any games. They will resume the league on Friday 12 January with a away trip to Beerschot. A good timing to take a look at the Neerpedeboys' first half of the season.


RSCA Futures are the highest-ranked U23 team in the Challenger Pro League, ahead of Club NXT, SL16 FC and KRC Genk. They ended the first half of the season ranked 9th, just 9 points behind the leader Zulte Waregem. They also have the third-best away record in the league.


27 players have been used this season by coach Marink Reedijk. Neerpede's 2005 generation, led by Tristan Degreef, Anas Tajaouart, Luca Monticelli and Naïl Moutha-Sebtaoui, stood out. Foreign talents such as Nilson Angulo and Robbie Ure also made their mark.

Average age

18,8 years old. That's the average age of the players featured by the RSCA Futures in the 2023/24 edition of the Challenger Pro League. The young Nunzio Engwanda, born in 2007, made the headlines when he broke the record for the youngest player in Belgian professional football against Beerschot at Lotto Park.


Marink Reedijk and his staff have seen their successful month of October (3 wins out of 3 games) rewarded with the Coach of the Month award. A real achievement, given that this trophy concerns both the first and second divisions of Belgium's football.

The RSCA Futures still have 14 games to play in the Challenger Pro League, starting with a trip to Beerschot on Friday 12 January at 8pm. Keep up the good work, lads.
