Chris Slade describes the son et lumiere presentation at the abbey of Bon Repos called "Le Pays de Conomor" in Brittany, which takes place during the first two weeks of August.
It was one of the biggest events for Plestin FC on Sunday, as they have been having a good run in the “Coupe de Bretagne” and had drawn Quimper first team at home.
Quimper are 6 divisions higher than Plestin, so it was a prestigious match. There were a couple of hundred people in attendance.
Neither of my boys were playing as Xav is in the B team, and Bas attends training irregularly. In the event, they chose 9 defenders, as they played 1.9.1. The goal keeper had an outstanding match, and it wasn’t until after the hour that Quimper scored their first goal.
The main difference between the 2 teams was fitness, and Quimper made Plestin look laboured towards the end, as their superior stamina levels won them the match. There was a good ambiance and a complete hush when they scored their first goal.
