Date: 28th May 2016

Match: Vejby - Varbergs GIF  2-5  (Division 3 Sydvästra Götaland)

Attendance: 210

 

Vejbyslätts IF was founded in 1921. In 2009 the club changed its name to Vejby IF and the club play their home games at Vejby Idrottsplats. From Laröd, where I attended Hittarp vs Kungsbacka earlier in the day, it takes around 30 minutes to drive to Vejby IP and I arrived some 40 minutes before kick-off. In 2014 Vejby IF won Division 4 Norra (Skåne) and 2016 is only the second ever season for the club at this level. The most famous player from these parts is probably the goalkeeper Pär Hansson who has played 193 Allsvenskan games for Helsingborgs IF. Helsingborgs IF play at Olympia and that ground is currently being rebuilt. It seems The new stand in the north side of Vejby IP seems to be made of old seats from Olympia. There are around 200 seats in this stand and with the row numbers being 9,5,4 and 2 (in that order) I guess this stand is never sold-out. Anyway, Vejby IP is a nice ground with no running tracks and a grass pitch. For this game more than 200 fans, including around 20 from Varberg, turned up and we had an entertaining afternoon in Vejby.

 

Varbergs GIF made it 0-1 in the 20th minute but eight minutes later it 2-1 to the home team. With Vejby being third bottom (and Varbergs GIF fourth from bottom) three points from today´s game was important for the home team. That was not to be the case though. Vejby seem to run out of energy in the second half and Varbergs GIF completely turned things around on the pitch. Four goals meant the visitors could win 5-2 and Vejby have to improve if the club wants to stay in this division. Two new grounds for me this sunny Saturday and but at the moment it seems my next match won´t be until EURO 2016 starts in France, Ireland v Sweden at Stade de France in two weeks time.
