Olomoucký Kraj - Okres Prostějov - IV Třída - Skupina A (10th level)
Haná Prostějov "B" 7 Zdětín "B" 1
Game rating: 6.5/10
This was the 2nd round of games in the IV Třída, with Haná Prostějov "B" losing their first game 4-1. A regional weekly sports newspaper has tipped Haná Prostějov "B" as favourites for promotion this season. Based on their play against Zdětín, I would say that they are not far off.
The pitch where Haná plays is being redeveloped. From what I understand there will be a stand with capacity for around 120 people, and some sort of sports hall. The plan is to have the men's team of 1. SK Prostějov reform after a few years of inactivity. They use to play in the 2nd division but were relegated a number of times in succession. I have heard that 1. SK Prostějov wants to play in the Czech 4th division next year. I am not sure where this will leave Haná Prostějov, but I have hopes that they will be able to share the new facility with 1. SK. One thing is for certain, I will not be jumping ship and supporting 1. SK next season.
As a result of this reconstruction, the pitch and surrounding area is a mess. The few rows of cement steps have been removed; there are fences everywhere; and it is very muddy. It certainly will not be a very nice place to watch a game this season.
The first half was very one-sided, with Haná domininating the play. I do not think the visitors even had a shot on goal. The second half was much the same, and Prostějov were full value for the win.
