NETHERLANDS: SCH (1926-2017)

Sportpark De Biezen, Nijmegen (formerly SCH = Sportclub Hees)

Netherlands, province: Guelders = Gelderland


July 2018 / no match visited

Note: SCH, formed in 1921 (albeit under a different name, NHC - Nijmegen-Hees-Combinatie - given up in 1926), moved to Sportpark De Biezen in 1926. In January 2017, after continued irregularities on and off the pitch, all SCH teams were banned from participating in regular competitions - upon which the club board decided there was no other option but to fold. In December 2017, Nijmegen's town council decided to knock down the clubhouse. Nowadays, the ground remains in use as a sports facility for several local schools.
