NETHERLANDS: UVV Albatross

Sportpark Ugchelen-Brouwersmolenweg, Ugchelen (UVV Albatross)

Netherlands, province: Guelders = Gelderland

10 VI 2018 / UVV Albatross - Sportclub Brummen 2-1 / District East, Sunday Leagues 3 & 4 - promotion-relegation play-off semi (= NL levels 8 & 9)

Note: UVV Albatross, founded in 1919, were given this rather unusual name, as their first suggestions ('UVV' and 'Stormvogels') were turned down by the Netherlands' FA as these had already been taken on by other clubs (both still existing today, from Utrecht and IJmuiden respectively). Albatross moved away from a ground at Ugchelsegrensweg to settle down at their current premises in 1988.

NETHERLANDS: VSV

Hofgeest, Velserbroek (VSV = Velseroorder Sportvereniging)

Netherlands, province: North-Holland

9 VI 2018 / VSV (za) - Atletico Club Amsterdam (za) 0-0 A.E.T. - VSV wins penalty shoot-out: 5-3 / District West I, Saturday Leagues 3 & 4 - promotion-relegation play-off semi (= NL levels 8 & 9)

Note 1: VSV, founded in 1912, won the Netherlands' cup final in 1938 and were a professional league side from 1954 until merging with IJVV Stormvogels in 1963, becoming Telstar. Whilst Telstar have remained a regular in the Dutch professional leagues ever since, both Stormvogels and VSV withdrew into non-league. Having played at several locations in and around Velsen, VSV settled down at the Hofgeest ground in Velserbroek in 1997.

Note 2: according to the locals, the 'hoist' (cp. photos 10, 14 & 15) is the original scoreboard of Sportpark Schoonenberg, home of Telstar, which has sported a modern remake since a couple of years. Unfortunately, VSV's scoreboard is not in use any longer.
