BELGIUM: K Achter Olen VV (1954-2015) / SK Achter Olen (2015-2017) / Olen United (B) (2017-)

Zonnebloemstraat, Olen Onze-Lieve-Vrouw-Olen (SK Achter Olen, formerly K Achter Olen VV)

Belgium, province: Antwerp

13 IV 2017 / SK Achter Olen - SAV Sint-Dimpna 0-7 / Friendly

Note 1: Achter Olen VV, founded in 1932, moved to the Zonnebloemstraat ground twenty-two years later. In 2015, K Achter Olen VV merged with SK Hezewijk to form SK Achter Olen. This club, in its turn, will merge with KAC Olen (from Sint-Jozef-Olen) in 2017, becoming Olen United. First team football will be played at KAC Olen's Gestelstraat.

Note 2: to my surprise, one of the away team's players turned out to be Sepp De Roover (photo 7, guy in black/white closest to the camera), who took part for Belgium in the 2008 Summer Olympics, won two caps for Belgium's national squad, and - most impressively - played two seasons for 'my' club NAC.
