Huaröd

Ground: Huaröds Idrottsplats

Visits: 5

Date: 9th June 2021

Match: Huaröd - Degeberga  4-0  (Division 6 Skåne Nordöstra B)

Attendance: 130

Growing up in the village of Degeberga the main rivals in football were the clubs from the neighbouring villages. One of those clubs is Huaröd and in the 80s I went to several derbies at Huaröds IP. I especially remember a promotion decider in the penultimate round which ended 3-3 in front of almost 300 spectators. Nowadays both clubs are playing in Division 6 Skåne Nordöstra and once I noted the derby was played on Wednesday evening I decided to revisit Huaröds IP for the first time in 30+ years. It was actually the opening game of the season for both clubs and I was of course looking forward to the match. Due to a severe accident on the motorway there was a massive queue leading out of Kristianstad but I eventually made it to Huaröd in time for kick-off. The referees actually arrive only 15 minutes prior to kick-off and I guess they were held up as well. Huaröd only has a population of 230 and a few years ago they advertised for new players in the local paper. As a result more or less every player in Huaröd lives in Kristianstad which unfortunately takes away some of the rivalry. Degeberga had mostly local players though and I spotted several familiar faces on and off the pitch. The weather was really nice this evening and I estimated around 130 fans had made their way to Huaröds IP for this derby, for a game at level 8 that is a really good attendance.

As soon as the game got underway it was obvious Huaröd were by far the better team. They needed a penalty to break the deadlock though and at half-time it was “only” 1-0 to the home team. Early in the second half Degeberga had a really good chance to equalize but a woeful finish made sure it was still 1-0. Huaröd then scored once again from the penalty spot to make it 2-0 and it was then just a matter how many goals the home team would score. When the final whistle was blown Huaröd had scored four goals to win 4-0 and no-one could question the fairness of that result. I will most likely watch Huaröd on Saturday as well and hopefully that means plenty of goals for me yet again.
