After the game in Veenendaal between GVVV and FC Lienden I went to Groesbeek where Achilles '29 and Kozakken Boys were meeting each other. As it's in the club name, Achilles '29 were founded in 1929. The club was actually the first club in history who were willing to promote from Dutch amateur football to the professional 2nd tier, after there were only 16 teams left as AGOVV and Veendam went bankrupt. Nowadays the club is relegated from professional football as they didn't meet the requirements, while they currently still have a lot of financial troubles.

The Kozakken Boys are having a good season with only Katwijk in front of them while Achilles '29 will probably relegate again. The visitors were already in front after 10 minutes and could or even should have scored much more, while Achilles also got a few good chances. After the break El Azzouti scored 2 more goals, completing his hattrick; 0-3.
