February 7, 2016 - Friendly - HFK Olomouc 1 Ústí u Hranic 2

Februarz 7, 2016
HFK Olomouc (III) 1 Ústí u Hranic (V) 2
Attendance - 25

Holice is a part of Olomouc and has a population of around 6,400.  The football pitch is located just off the main road.  If you do not have a car, Holice can be reached by bus from the main train station.

HFK Olomouc was a decent little club that bounced between the 2nd and 3rd divisions for a few years.  However, they are struggling a little now on and off the field.  A perfect example was watching them lose to a 5th division side. 

Of interest to some is that Marek Heinz is still playing for HFK.  He is now 38 years old but he has played for Sigma Olomouc, Hamburger, Dukla Prague, Ostrava, Borussia Monchengladbach, Galatasary, Saint-Etienne, Nantes and he has 30 caps for the Czech national team.  Marek is from Olomouc so it makes sense for him to play for a local side as his playing days wind down.

I hate winter friendlies, which is why I have not been posting as much as of late.
