2009 - 2010
After a season in second class, STVV is happily competing in first class again. It started with a fantastic performance on the field of defending champion Standard (2-2). It became a season for licking thumbs and fingers. The team of coach Guido Brepoels gathered one point after the other. On 12 September, Anderlecht once again exposed their buttocks to Stayen (2-1). An unforgettable moment followed: STVV in first division! After 44 years back 'top of the league'.
A few moments to cherish: Sidibe was top scorer in Belgium, Simon Mignolet and Denis Odoi were allowed to perform with the Belgian promises.
STVV closed the regular season in fifth place.
In play-off 1, the Canaries continued along the same path, resulting in a fourth place. Only Anderlecht, AA Gent and Club Brugge did better. Goalkeeper Simon Mignolet was elected best goalkeeper of the year by his fellow professional footballers and decorated a transfer to Sunderland AFC. An STVV member in the Premier League, we are proud of that.
