German fans at our game yesterday

There is a Twin Town committee that is council funded. They arrange trips to each town once or twice a year and personally host the visitors. They arrange trips around the UK when they come and visit. The last visit they went to Derbyshire/Matlock area.
My friends dad is on the committee. However, I got the impression that the majority of people on the committee are pensioners and my mates dad who is in his 70's said he was the youngest.. They are desperate for new members to keep the committee running, otherwise they will lose the funding. Not sure these football fans are part of that though.

I went to Oberhausen on a german exchange trip as a kid (1990s) and have always looked out for their results ever since. Wouldn't suprise me if that was reciprocated by them.
