The village of huttenheim, with its 600 inhabitants, is quiet and tranquil in many respects. The wine village on the kitzingen county border that pays to willanzheim is not necessarily known for fubball. Last year, SV huttenheim missed out on a place in the A-class by just two points. At the end of this round, the club is expected to emerge from the shadows of the B-class into the light again. That would be a precision landing just in time for the club’s 50th anniversary in the summer.
"It was," says sporting director stephan stadtelmeyer. But just before the game at the so far unbeaten class leader TSV gobmannsdorf, the huttenheimers, who have nine points, but are also two games behind, have made a mistake. The opening match against the second team of FC eibelstadt in the district league was a 3-2 loss. Sporting director stadtelmeyer blames adverse conditions for his club in recent weeks. "That was our first game ever after the winter break. In the preparation we could not play at all, first because of the weather, then once the scheduled opponent canceled at short notice because of personnel problems."
