🏆 Third League A, Amateurs, Belgian League
⚽ RCS Brainois – Rapid Symphorinois 1-0
🏟️ Stade Gaston Reiff, Braine L’Alleud, Brabant Wallon, Belgium
For a long time I was looking forward to come back to this ground, Stade Gaston Reiff, home of RCS Brainois, located in Braine L’Alleud just outside Brussels and very close to the Waterloo memorial/battle ground.
With my youth team I played several games on this ground in the past and everytime I was really impressed to play on this pitch. The very small stand, a the track and field around the pitch, the old-school dressing rooms and a small player’s tunnel made me feel like I was playing a big Champions League game.
Unfortunately home team, RCS Branois didn’t play their game on the old ground but played on their second ground on a synthetic turf pitch. Quite disappointing. RCS Brainois scored the 1-0 in the first half and defended succesfully their lead till the end of the game against their opponents Rapid Symphorinois.
