Södra Sandby

Ground: Södra Sandby Idrottsplats  (Sandbyvallen)

Visits: 1

Date: 25th May 2019

Match: Södra Sandby - Malmö City  2-0  (Division 3 Södra Götaland)

Attendance: 109

Södra Sandby is a town with a population of around 7,000. It is situated just east of Lund and from where I live it takes around an hour by car to reach Södra Sandby. In 2018 the local football club, Södra Sandby IF, managed to win Division 4 Skåne Östra and 2019 is the first time ever for the club playing at level 5 in Sweden. Kick-off this Saturday afternoon was at 15.00 and I left home as early as 12.30. A colleague of mine lives in Södra Sandby and I stopped by her house for a coffee and ice-cream before leaving for the ground. Her son had played a game at 9am this morning at one of the smaller pitches next to the ground so this was actually her second match of the day! We arrived shortly before kick-off and there was not exactly a rush to enter the ground. The official attendance was later given as 109 and as the match was about to start we observed a minute of silence for a long-serving away supporter. For this level Södra Sandby IP is quite a nice ground with a natural grass pitch and a covered seated stand in the south side of the ground.

Södra Sandby have had a decent start to the season but with 3 teams being relegated and fourth from bottom ending up in the play-offs it is important to pick up many points early on. The first half was an even affair but the only goal was scored by the home team, 1-0 at half-time. In the second half Malmö City had a few chances early on but their players seem to run out of energy and Södra Sandby could eventually score another goal to win 2-0. As I left Södra Sandby IP I said good bye to my colleague and I have now (once again) completed the most southern of the 12 Division 3-leagues in Sweden.
