NETHERLANDS: vv Hillegom (1981-2012) / SV Hillegom (B) (2012-)

Sportpark Zanderij West, Hillegom (SV Hillegom - B pitch, formerly vv Hillegom)

Netherlands, province: South Holland

June 2018 / no match visited

Note: SV Hillegom are a merger of vv Hillegom (formed in 1951 and playing at Sportpark Zanderij from 1981 on) and SV Concordia, concluded in 2012. To suit the newly formed merger club, Hillegom's town council completely renovated Concordia's club house and main pitch for first team football. The main pitch of vv Hillegom, who occupied the western half of Sportpark Zanderij, has been left largely untouched and is nowadays being used for lower team football.

21 VI 2018 / SV Hillegom - vv Kolping Boys 5-2 A.E.T. / District West I, Sunday Leagues 1 & 2, promotion-relegation play-off QF (= NL levels 6 & 7)

Note 1: SV Hillegom were eliminated in the first round of the promotion-relegation play-offs by HSV (and emphatically so, 0-5), but as HSV were eliminated from the competition by Dutch FA after unlawful conduct in their last regular game of the season, they were replaced by Kolping Boys - and a second chance to proceed to the play-off's semi which Hillegom grabbed with both hands.

Note 2: SV Hillegom are a merger of SV Concordia (formed in 1920 and playing at Sportpark Zanderij from 1976 on) and vv Hillegom, concluded in 2012. To suit the newly formed merger club, Hillegom's town council completely renovated Concordia's club house and main pitch for first team football. The main pitch of vv Hillegom, who occupied the the western half of Sportpark Zanderij, has been left largely untouched and is nowadays being used for lower team football.
