Figure of AS Angoulême, the former defender Silvio Sérafin died this Friday at Camille-Guérin hospital in Châtellerault at the age of 82. Arrived from Angers in D1, the defender had spent the last four years of his playing career in Angoulême from 1966 to 1970.
He had largely contributed to the golden age of the club with the semi-final of the Coupe de France lost to the piece against Lyon in 1966, the rise in D1 in 1969 and the 4th place in 1970.
At 32, he had retired and started a career as an amateur trainer at Châtellerault where he ran a café. His body rests at the Funeral Home of Naintré (Vienne), where a ceremony will take place on Friday. It will be followed by cremation.
