Winter training friendly
SK Prostějov 4 Čechovice "B" 1
SK Prostějov currently play in the 10th tier of football, but as I have written before, they played in the Czech 2nd division back around 8 years. The club fell into some financial problems, and poor performances on the pitch. This saw them fall all the way down to the 5th division. For a few years, the club only ran youth teams, but this season saw the return of a men's team. They play in the Olomoucký Kraj - Okresní Prostějov - 4 třída Skupina B, where they are currently leading. Their league resumes April 2nd. Their opponents yesterday was Čechovice "B", who play in the Olomoucký Kraj - Okresní Přebor Prostějov, which is the 8th tier of football in the Czech Republic.
This game was played on the artificial turf next to the main pitch in Prostějov. Come to think of it, I don't even know what the stadium is called. I am sure it most have some official name, and i will try to track it down. Anyway, there were no proper stands nor seats to watch this game, as one could only stand at the back of the main stand. The artificial turf wasn't of the best quality, but I suppose it is better than nothing. Most of the people at the game seemed to be the Prostějov supporters who go to home and away games.
Despite playing two levels below Čechovice "B", Prostějov deserved the victory. They were quicker and more talented then their opponents. When Čechovice "B" had a few chances, the Prostějov keeper made some key stops. I can't imagine Prostějov failing to get promoted this year. Actually, I'd be shocked if they didn't. From what I see, they certainly could compete in the 8th tier. It'll be interesting to follow their progress over the next few years.
