SV Herkol was founded in 1976 and before 2002 the club always played at the 3th or 4th provincial level. In 2003 the club managed to promote for the first time to the 2nd provincial league, followed by an instant relegation. One year later the club became champions again and stayed for 6 seasons, until 2010. In 2010 they relegated, followed by another relegation in 2011, back to the lowest provincial league. With back-to-back promotions, the club quickly returned to the 2nd provincial league (2013). In 2017 SV Herkol became champions in the 2nd provincial league which meant they would start for the first time ever at the 1st provincial level.

In today's game against Weerstand Koersel, the visitors got already in front after just 12 minutes. As both sides didn't got much chances, it was still 0-1 at the break. After the break the home team started to play better which resulted in an equalizer at the hour mark; 1-1. With only 10 minutes to go the home team seemed to have scored the winner (2-1) but 3 minutes from time the visitors from Koersel equalised, which seemed a very fair result.

By visiting Park FC Houthalen yesterday, only 3 more clubs remained unvisited in the Limburg 6th division. With SV Herkol, I ticked another off the list, leaving 2 more to do.
