Okres Šumperk - 8th tier - Loučna nad Desnou

Okres Šumperk - 8th tier

Loučna nad Desnou is a town of 1900 people located 55km north of Olomouc and 191km east of Prague.   The area is probably most known in Moravia for skiing, and most certainly not football.  The local side currently plays in the 8th tier.  During the 2009/10 season, the club played in the 6th tier, but after the season they relegated themselves to the 8th tier.  Perhaps the most well known player who started their career at Loučna is Radoslav Kováč. The former Czech Republic international began his career at the age of 9 with Loučna and went on to play for Sigma Olomouc, Spartak Moscow, West Ham, and Sparta Prague.
