Kozakken Boys – Katwijk VV 26-05-2018

Date: 26-05-2018
Game: Kozakken Boys - Katwijk VV 0-0
Competition: Tweede Divisie, Netherlands
Stadium: Sportpark de Zwaaier, Werkendam

Kozakken Boys has been on my programme for so many times but until yesterday I never managed to visit them. With the final game of the season against Katwijk VV, a title deciding, it was the perfect moment to visit them, together with 4500 football fans, including 800 visitors.

Kozakken Boys were founded back in 1932 and managed to reach the top of the Dutch amateur football by 1970. In 2015 the club became general Saturday champions in the Netherlands. The club has been using Sportpark de Zwaaier since 2001, which has been sold out 2 times before in the KNVB Cup against AZ and Ajax.

A lot of pyro before today's game delayed the start with a few minutes but as soon as the game started you could see both teams were very nervous. Kozakken Boys tried to create a few chances and almost scored with a great shot from distance while Katwijk's danger was more sterile. The same kind of game after the break in which the best chance came only a few minutes from time; a great strike against the post which should have crowned Kozakken Boys as champions. Overall the game was quite boring but luckily both set of fans made it very entertaining.
