Beukenhof, Sint-Lambrechts-Herk

posted in: Limburg, Stadiums | 0

The Beukenhof is one of those football grounds where you can still imagine how it must have been in 1956 when Herk Sport was founded. There is, of coursemuch added since then but the sense of calm, the nearby fields and nature and the friendly character of the Hasselt municipality contribute to an almost Zen-like football experience.

The owner of this slice of heaven is Herk sports and the high point in the club’s history was the 95-96 season when the club, in their first year in the Fourth Division immediately finished 2nd.

The success would have no sequel, a nice 8th place was achieved the following year but in the 97-98 season Sport was relegated back to the Provincial Divisions. 

Herk Sport relegated twice in the followings two years and had to start the new millenium in 3rd Provincial. While moving back up to 1st Provincial the team is now back in the 3rd Provincial Division.
