Two former Olhanense players have been making the news.

Rui Duarte, who captained the Olhão-based team when they won promotion to the Primeira Liga eight years ago, will continue in charge of SC Farense next season. In addition, players André Vieira, Tavinho, Neca, Livramento, Nuno Silva, Fabinho and Cássio have re-signed for the coming season.

Not such good news for Louletano where former Olhanense keeper Ivo Soares was boss last season. Due to financial constraints the manager and a number of players are expected to depart. Centre-back Pedro Kadri is expected to move to Farense.
