Olomoucký Kraj - IV Třida (10th level) skupina a
FC Hrubčice 0 Sokol Kladky 5 (0-0)
Game rating: 6.5/10
Welcome to the lowest level of football in Czech pyramid. Hrubčice is a small village of around 800 people located 6km southwest of Prostějov. Getting to the village on a Sunday was slightly more difficult as buses are so infrequent to villages on weekends. So, I had to take a train to Bedihošt´ and then walk 2km to Hrubčice. The village is surrounded by flat farmland, and it also has a chateau, which is in need of renovation.
As for the ground of FC Hrubčice. It is located on the edge of the village. As to be expected, the pitch was slightly bumpy, and the facilities were quite old. A few benches were placed on the slope of a hill, which served as the main seating area. There were also picnic tables behind one of the goals.
The game itself was decent, especially given the level of play. In the first half, both teams played to a 0-0 draw, but it was the visitors who enjoyed much of the play. If luck went their way, they could have scored two or three goals. The second half was much the same, but this time Kladky took full advantage of their chances and ran out 5-0 victors. A few of the goals were well taken, and would not have looked out of place at a higher level.
