Career as a player


Seiderer started playing football in the youth department of 1. FC Nürnberg , moved up to the first team at the age of 18 and was used in the Middle Franconian regional league . After some of the regular SpVgg Fürth players who had died in the war had to be replaced, Seiderer decided in May 1917 to switch to SpVgg Fürth . Seiderer, who is considered a goal threat - he scored 20 goals in 19 league games in his first season - earned the nickname "little gazelle" due to his game elegance . He won his first title on April 21, 1918 with the 2-1 victory over the Stuttgarter Kickers in the final of the South German Cup . In his four other finals, all of which he won, he only scored a goal on June 17, 1923, in a 4-3 win over FC Bayern Munich with a 3: 3 goal in the 33rd minute.

In the final round of the German championship in 1920 he reached the final with SpVgg Fürth for the first time , but it was lost 2-0 to 1. FC Nürnberg. With his two goals scored in the quarter- and semi-finals, he was together with Viktor Hierländer and Heinrich Träg however scorer .

In 1926 he reached the final of the German championship again with his team . Although his use in Frankfurt am Main seemed questionable for a long time due to an injury, he scored a goal in the 4-1 victory over Hertha BSC despite his weakness and, when his injury got worse and he could almost only play standing football on the left wing, the flank to the last goal by Willy Ascherl . When SpVgg Fürth reached the final for the third time on July 28, 1929 , he was no longer a member of the team. In eleven finals matches in which he was used, he scored a total of seven goals.

National team

On June 27, 1920, he played his first international match for the senior national team, which lost 4-1 to the Swiss national team in Zurich . He scored his first international goal in his second appearance for the DFB on September 26, 1920 in Vienna in the 2: 3 defeat in the game against the Austrian national team with the goal to the final score in the 87th minute. He played his last international game on April 21, 1924 in Amsterdam in a 1-0 victory over the Dutch national team .
