Olympique Alès is a French association football club founded in 1923, based in the commune of Alès. The Cévennes club currently playing in the Division d'Honneur Régionale – the seventh division – of the Ligue du Languedoc; the club in the past has played for six seasons in Ligue 1. The OAC is currently at a low point in its history, having been relegated to the 7th division at the end of last season, whereas it played in the Ligue National – the 3rd division – just three seasons ago. Over the last, disastrous, season, the club saw as many as three managers. In January 2006, Patrick Synaeghel was dismissed and replaced by Rudy Gargallo, who was then replaced in April by Henri Orlandini. Club president Claude Crégut resigned in March, when it was clear the club would not escape further relegation. The new trainer is Jose Carrascosa, and the new general manager is Jean-Marie Pasqualetti, a former player of the club.
