Football revival in the mountains of Tyachiv region (PHOTOS)
Because of the distance from the district and regional centers as well as lack of roads, men from the villages of Russkaya Polyana and Komsomolsk (Nemetskaya Mokraya) in Tyachiv district took part in this year’s first football match, which was held yesterday, on July 29. There competed younger and older footballers. One team was composed of those who are in early twenties, another – of older players. Players were equally good, at least in the first half they drew 1-1.
Vasiliy, the local school gym teacher and member of the village council, said that although the announcement about the match had been hung in the village just three days before the meeting, there were a lot of fans.
Both younger and older players hope that soon they will be able to arrange their pitch (sometimes proudly called the stadium), and soon the village will have a proper team that will compete with "external" rivals.
