BELGIUM: R Union Wallonne Ciney

Joseph Lambert, Ciney (R Union Wallonne Ciney)

Belgium, province: Namur = Namen

10 III 2012 / RUW Ciney - JS Habaysienne 3-0 / League 4D (= BE level 4)
26 VIII 2017 / RUW Ciney - Union La Calamine 3-0 / ACFF Div. 2 (= BE level 4)

Note 1: Joseph Lambert was Ciney's mayor from 1959 until his untimely passing away in 1968. Works on the stadium bearing his name in Ciney's Parc Saint-Roch began in 1970; it took no fewer than five years to complete the construction. By way of celebration, an inaugural match was held on August 3rd, 1975, against Slovan Bratislava (from what was then Czechoslovakia).

Note 2: below, a combination of photos taken during two different match visits: numbers 1-14, 16-17, 19-20 & 23: August 2017; numbers 15, 18 & 21-22: March 2012.
