Oct 13, 2014 - OFS Olomouc - IV třída - Střeň 2 Slatinice B 1

October 13, 2014 - OFS Olomouc IV třída - 10th division
Střeň 2 Slatinice B 1 
Attendance - 100
Beer - Klásteř on tap

Střeň is a small village of 580 people located about 13km from Olomouc.  On the weekends, trains from Prostějov via Olomouc leave towards Šumperk, with a stop in Střeň, almost every hour.  So, it is very easy to reach by public transportation.   The ground is about 1km from the train station, but there is a pub half way if you get the need to drink some beer.  The pitch is located right beside a road, and surrounding by trees.  It has to be one of my most favourite pitches I have visited over the past few years.

The game was typical for the 10th division, with both teams fighting hard and many yellow cards handed out.

October 5th, 2014 - Kralice na Hané B 0 Haná Prostějov 1

Bus stop in Prostějov

Kralice na Hané

October 5, 2014 - Okresní Přebor Prostějov - 8th division
Kralice na Hané B 0 Haná Prostějov 1
Attendance - 90
Admission - 10kc

Kralice is a village of around 1500 people located a few kilometers from Prostějov. This was my second visit, with my first being in March 2008 for a 5th division match between Kralice na Hané and Mikulovice.

There are a few buses from Prostějov that pass through Kralice na Hané on the weekends, but they are for the most part not convenient for football.  So, I took city bus 5 to the last stop Čechůvky.  From there it is about a 1.5km walk to Kralice.  

The ground is quite basic, with a small stand and benches.  The best thing about the ground was the pitch, as it is quite good for local football.  Overall, the game was not the best, but Haná deserved the 3 points.
