This week it was a normal one.

Friendly match

We had three practices and one friendly match against São Paio de Oleiros again.

It was the second friendly match against them. On the first, we won by 12 goals. However, they didn't have all the players in the squad available and because of that we decided to play a friendly match again, but this time they had to have the full team.

Well, in the end with or without the full time they lost again against us, this time by 8 goals.

So, it appears that we are in the correct path to try to achieve the season goal that is the promotion.


Since it is my first and I hope the unique one playing 3rd division, only now I understand this championship have 3 phases:

  • 1st phase between 08/10/2022 - 25/02/2023;
  • 2nd phase between 18/03/2022 - 03/06/2023;
  • final phase between 16/06/2023 - 18/06/2023;

Championship Group

During the last week it was decided our championship group (in 3rd division exists group stages and them two first teams going to the next phase playing for the promotion).

Zone 3

AD Carvalhos
AD Godim
Estrela Vigorosa Sport
Académico F.C.
Boavista F.C. 'B'
F.C. Gaia 'B'
G.C. Tarouca


The green circle represents our location (AD Carvalhos).
As you can see, most part of our games are quite close (8 km, 12 km and 13 km) to our locations, but we have two travels that are far away (67.2 km and 66.2 km).

These two "large" travels will be the most complicated ones regarding the wear and tear of the trip, but we have quite complicated games in the closest trips.

It was also defined our championship calendar:

08/10/2022AD Godim vs AD Carvalhos
