Vinberg

Ground: Vinåvallen

Visits: 1

Date: 1st August 2015

Match: Vinberg - Tvååker  1-3  (Division 2 Västra Götaland)

Attendance: 744

 

In April I went to the local derby between Tvååker and Vinberg. The two villages are situated around 20 km from each other and the attendance back then was 570. For a match in Division 2 (level 4) 570 is a very good attendance and I decided to try and go to the reversed fixture as well. That fixture was played the first day in August and with it being a local derby, 4th vs 1st, nice weather and free entrance I was hoping for an attendance over 1 000 at Vinåvallen. Kick-off was at 14.00 and after a 2-hour drive I parked my car outside the ground an hour before kick-off. Vinåvallen is, for this level, quite a nice ground with stands on two sides. The main stand is a covered, wooden stand in the south side of the ground. The opposite side has an elevated open stand and on both sides of this stand there are plenty of benches to sit on. In April it was raining and cold. This time around it was 18-20 °C and sunny with some clouds, perfect weather for football!

 

Before this match newly promoted Vinbergs IF were 4th in the table, four points behind leaders Tvååker. As the match kicked-off there were plenty of people inside the ground and as the attendance was later announced as 744 I was actually a bit disappointed. 744 is the best attendance in Division 2 Västra Götaland this season but I was still hoping for 1 000 to turn up. Anyway, the actual match was a good and entertaining one. Tvååker played some great attacking football in the first half and as the whistle went for the half-time break it was 3-0 to the visitors. Former Allsvenskan player Joakim Sjöhage scored two of those goals and even though Vinberg pulled a goal back in the second half Tvååker were by far the better team and I wouldn´t be surprised if they win this league. The match finished 1-3 and Tvååker are now three points clear at the top of the table.
