Novmeber 2nd, 2013 - Dub nad Moravou 3 Haná Prostějov 2
November 2nd, 2013
Olomoucký Kraj - 1 A třída, skupina B (6th tier)
Dub nad Moravou 3 Haná Prostějov 2
Admission - 20kc
Attendance - 75
This is the second year Haná has played in the 1 A třída, skupina B, but I was unable to get to Dub nad Moravou last year, so I made a point of it this year. Dub has a population of 1,600 people and it made headline news about 10 years ago, for all the wrong reasons, when a 75 year old priest was murdered outside of his church.
The village is only about 15km from Prostějov, but unfortunately there were not any direct buses from Prostějov at the time I needed to leave. So, I had to go to Olomouc, walk to a bus stop, and from there take another bus to Dub. All in all, it took about 75 minutes. The way back was not any easier, as I had to take a bus to a village called Blatec where I caught the train back to Prostějov.
The football pitch is about a 5 minute walk from the centre of the village. The facilities were decent, at least for this level. There is a small covered seated stand which seats about 50 people, and park benches lining one side of the pitch.
Both sides going into the game near the bottom of the table, so it was perhaps the most important match of the season. Dub nad Moravou had a better run of it in the 2nd half and in the end probably deserved the three points.
