Match: Glimåkra - Vanneberga  1-2  (Division 4 Skåne Östra)

Attendance: 130

Glimåkra is situated just north of Kristianstad and by car it takes around 35 minutes. The small town (pop. 1,400) has always been good in sports and apart from football there is also an ice-hockey club in Glimåkra. When it comes to football the by far most famous player from Glimåkra is Ingemar Erlandsson. He left Glimåkra in 1976 and then played 11 seasons for Malmö FF, including the 1979 European Cup final. He also made 69 appearances for Sweden with the highlight being the 1978 World Cup. The local football club Glimåkra IF nowadays play in Division 4 and in tonight's game they were hosting Vanneberga. That is kind of a derby and this lovely Tuesday evening I was expecting a decent crowd.

Trollavallen is located next to the ice-hockey arena (Trollarinken) but it is unfortunately quite an uninspiring ground. A few years ago the club decided to build an artificial pitch next to the old grass pitch and since then Glimåkra play their home games on the artificial pitch at Trollavallen. The old grass pitch is still used for youth games though. As kick-off approached I noticed the sports editor of the local paper was at Trollavallen as well this evening. Being an old friend we then watched the game together. In the first half we could witness two goals. Glimåkra made it 1-0 in the 33rd minute but two minutes later Vanneberga equalised when Anton Persson scored with a great half-volley. It was 1-1 at half-time and as the sun disappeared behind the trees it was quite chilly at Trollavallen. I changed to their other side, there was still some sun, but it was still quite cold. The 2nd half was for 87 minutes boring. In that minute Vanneberga was awarded a penalty but no one in the crowd knew why. It was apparently for handball and there were heavy protests from the Glimåkra players who claimed their player was pushed before handling the ball. The resulting penalty was eventually put into the back of the net and it ended 1-2 at Trollavallen. The attendance was slightly lower than I expected but of those present around half supported the visitors. Those visiting fans left Trollavallen top of the table.
