FC Cimrishamn played a draw on Sunday afternoon when the top team IBK Lund visited the Jonebergshallen in Simrishamn. After a strong turnaround, it could even have won the Simrishamn team which, however, had to settle for 6-6 on the scoreboard after the 60 played minutes.
Larsson held the FCC in the match
After a great introduction with high tempo from both teams, the guests took the command and also received a dividend up to 0-1. The minute later it was close to 0-2 but an incomparable rescue of Martin Larsson in the home goal put an end to the two-dimensional substandard. The mobility in the attacks of the much younger guys from Lund forced Cimrishamn down into a tight box which in turn forced the Lund team to play around the ball and shoot from a distance. The guests' takeover gave fair dividends when one minute remained of period one. A nice release behind his back relieved Martin Holgersson who lifted 0-2. The home player of the period was Larsson in the goal who with luck and skill kept the numbers down.
"Martin makes a fantastic match but many of the rescue he does, I expect him to do," says Cimrishamn's coach Fredrik Hennigor.
Strong turn in the second period
How would the FCC change the match image? The answer came in the second period when higher and more aggressive pressure from the home players made Lund unable to hold the ball as easily. The match was at 3.30 when Tobias Johansson found Andreas Björborn who sprang in the reduction until 1-2. After eight minutes, the FCC's Andreas Larsson was stunned after he ran out. Penalty for the home team. Anders Bäckman showed cold when he pressed 2-2 to the right of Lund's goalkeeper. Lund withdrew the lead when a distance shot went in at one of the home posts. After 16 minutes, Veton Gashi jumped on a ball on the left and dotted 3-3 and with two minutes left of the mid-season Andreas Björborn slammed with a backhand shot that the guests' goalkeeper couldn't hold. Strong by Cimrishamn to turn the first period's 0-2 to 4-3 line after others.
Both teams went for profit in third
Lund's receipt hunt started immediately in the last period. The guests again had great ball possession but rolled most around the Cimrishamn's frequent box. Instead, the home team got into danger and after six minutes Tobias Johansson did 5-3 on a free kick. Shortly thereafter, Cimrishamn was hit by two expulsions in the same match sequence, which came to be decisive. Lund took advantage of the takeover and reduced to 5-4 after seven minutes. The acknowledgment hunt resumed. The receipt was also in the air shortly thereafter but Larsson in the home made a new phantom rescue along the floor. The FCC suffered another expulsion and on the subsequent free-throw, the receipt came when the home team didn't really get into the defense positions. However, the home team wanted more. Big cheers in the hall after 11.40 in the final period when Fredrik Jeppsson elegantly steered 6-5 ahead of goal.
With five minutes left, Lund was awarded a penalty that was used until 6-6. Then the law took its time out in trying to make a decision. None of the teams succeeded in this and the entertaining match ended in a draw of 6X.
- Acid when we headed with two goals in the last period. The expulsions sabbatized for us but I am still quite satisfied. This is the series' best team despite not leading the series, says Cimrishamn's coach Fredrik Hennigor.
FC Cimrishamn-IBK Lund 6-6
Goalie FC Cimrishamn: Andreas Björborn, Anders Bäckman, Veton Gashi, Tobias Johansson and Fredrik Jeppsson.
Cimrishamn remains on a negative qualifying spot with five rounds left to play. The two away matches for the FCC are waiting for IBK Finn, another top team from Lund, visiting the Jonebergshallen on the 9 March.
Thanks to this weekend's victory over IBK Stanstad at home in Jonebergshallen, FC Cimrishamn hangs in the top of the floor 4 division south. The team is in third place, two points behind Hofterup's IBK which is currently second and meant the positive qualifying spot. Six rounds remain.
It only took 19 seconds for Cimrishamns point king Andreas Björborn to push 1-0 behind Stanstad's goalkeeper. Cimrishamn's large ball possession and clear goal chances should have resulted in more goals during the first period. But that did not happen. Instead, Stanstad stepped up in several quick adjustments and surprisingly created many goal chances given that it was the home team that sat in the driver's seat. The 1-0 score after the first period could as well have been 3-3 if the team's efficiency in the closing had been better.
After four minutes in the second period Fredrik Jeppsson found a gap in the far left corner where he carefully placed the ball up to 2-0. 8.53 into the middle period, the guests were awarded a penalty resulting from a misunderstanding in Cimrishamn's defense game. The penalty was missed and instead the home team increased to 3-0 in the thirteenth minute through Andreas Björborn. Now Cimrishamn showed why it was 25 points between the teams before the match. 4-0 through Simon Hedqvist and 5-0 through Andreas Björborn announced the scoreboard after two periods played. The match felt in practice decisive.
In the third period the match quality went down and Stanstad was allowed a lot of ball where they created several sharp positions but it took until the fifteenth minute before the 5-1 reduction came. In the final period, the audience in Jonebergshallen also saw an a-team debut when coach Anders Bäckman replaced 19-year-old Johannes Jeppsson. Also 48-year-old Thomas Stålhammar made his first match for the home crowd (debuted in the last away match). "It was fun to play," said a satisfied Johanne Jeppsson after his a-team debut, which ended with a 5-1 victory.
FC Cimrishamn-IBK Stanstad 5-1 (1-0,4-0,0-1) Goalkeepers FCC: Andreas Björborn 3, Fredrik Jeppsson and Simon Hedqvist.

The fall meeting in handball division 4 south A ended with a clear victory for home team Bjärreds HK over Tomelilla IF 2. During Friday night's hit in Tomelilla's sports hall, it was Tomelilla's turn to have the advantage of home ground. Could the home advantage be able to turn on the steak?
Before the match we found Tomelilla in eighth place in the table with four points scored. Bear table table with ten points.
Tomelilla took the lead 1-0 and then kept steady, after the first quarter the score was 5-6. Much of Tomelilla's attacking play revolved around Gabriel Andersson coming to an end. Bjärred's young players found more variations in their attacks much thanks to faster passing games and when away team Jakob Nilsson started to find the right with the shots from outside Tomelilla had no cure. The away line was wiped out and the half-time result was written to 11-18.
After the break, Bjärred showed that they were the stronger team this time. The goal difference increased further early in the second half and both teams then helped the match out to keep the difference of around ten goals. End result 25-34.

Already in the late 80's Martin Andersson's interest in martial arts started. In 1990 he started coaching kickboxing at Tomelilla Sports Karate Club. 30 years later he is still passionate about martial arts, and especially kickboxing. Martin and his wife Åsa have been running the Wellnez gym in Simrishamn for five years. To help with the business, they have dozens of hourly instructors and apprentices.
Wellnez currently has close to 600 members. Usually, there is full speed in the premises. We find one of the few empty training rooms and sit down on each other's chair opposite each other for a moment's talk about martial arts.
- It was very hard training in Tomelilla and it became the gateway to my interest in martial arts. Since then, I'm stuck, Martin Andersson begins.
During these thirty years, Martin has been practicing karate, kung fu, aikido and Thai boxing, but it has always been the kickboxing that he came back to. There have been around 25 matches in various martial arts but he has never competed in the favorite discipline of boxing.
- There was not much competition in kickboxing and I never got the opportunity to compete. Only a few people went to individual matches. We trained and sparred against a club in Ystad. It is still common in martial arts that not many people are interested in competing in the sport itself. Many, on the other hand, want to learn self-defense and get a good and versatile training.
Kickboxing is about 70% traditional boxing and 30% kicking. The kicks, however, give higher points than beaten in matches. A kick can give up to three points while a successful hit always gives one point. In other words, it is important to practice a lot of kicks. What is so fun about just kickboxing?
- It is a modern sport that adopts sports science and through it changes both style and rules. Kickboxing is not a static style, it is constantly evolving.
To be part of that development, Martin started the Wellnez Weekend Warriors association. Between 30-40 people kickboxing actively trains in the association. 15 of these are also interested in competing, in the style All style. Now you have your own association, should you start competing now?
- No, now I'm too old to start competing. From the year you turn 45 you must have an approved health examination in Sweden and I will not fix it. But it is fantastic joy and community when we compete over the styles in All style.
Together with the well-known Danish fighter Michael "Zen-Dragon" Gottlieb Martin and Wellnez Weekend Warriors organized a competition in Denmark this summer.
- It went amazingly well, Robin Ekström won on points over Dragon. It was also Robin's first match. Robin will be our new head coach now that I take a step back. However, I will continue as assistant coach, proud Martin, who also mentions Mahmoud Jarour (belonging to the national team in karate) as a promising athlete in All style.
The match between Robin Ekström and Michael "Zen-Dragon" Gottlieb can be seen below.
On February 29, Martin, Robin and some of the club's juniors will go to Stockholm where they compete All Style the Future # 3 where participants from muay thai, kickboxing, MMA, kung fu, karate, shootfighting and taekwondo meet under a unique common rules system.
Wellnez Weekend Warriors practice three days a week, not just weekends as the name suggests. Everyone who comes to the training level is divided and Martin and Åsa certainly have room for more who are curious about kickboxing or other training. Wellnez also houses Strength by Martin, his present-day business if you want a personal trainer. Watch the inspirational film below.
Age: 45 Length: 177 cm Weight: 97 kg Family: Married to Åsa, children Amanda and Elinor and dog Ludde Lives: Simrishamn Profession: Gym owner, personal trainer, instructor and initiator to develop martial arts at Österlen
During the weekend swimming competitions UGP2 in Eslöv, it really flowed really well for the swimmers from Kiviks Simklubb. Or how about 14 gold medals, nine silver and a bronze they brought home to Österlen.
Six of the gold medals stood for Olivia Hansson. Almost as many, four golds, Thea Brünje's home swam. Oscar Nordström was awarded three golds and Julia Olsson took the swimming club's fourteenth gold during the competitions. 24 medals!
During the weekend, the men's Nils Holgersson Cup was decided in the Nils Holgersson Hall in Skurup. 14 of the cup's 64 teams came from the Österlen area. Three of these, IFK Simrishamn, Tomelilla IF and Österlen FF, had qualified for Sunday's playoffs. Österlen FF went all the way and took both Nils Holgersson Cup trophy and SEK 10 home to Österlen.
First out of the Österlen Act to play the eighth finals was Tomelilla IF, who was immediately respected by a skilled IFK Klagshamn who also had the margins on his side at a couple of crucial moments. Loss for Tomelilla by 1-2. IFK Simrishamn was placed against BK Höllviken in an eighth, where Simrishamn ended up in a 0-2 draw despite dominance on the pitch. However, Simrishamn turned to 4-3 lead with less than a minute left. A dream meeting from a Höllviker from over half the plane meant an extension where it was not long before the western skies decided. Loss for IFK Simrishamn by 4-5.
Österlen FF went undefeated to the final. The recipe was safe ball treatments, constant position changes and extremely few ball pins. The final against physically strong Rydsgårds AIF was no exception. As Furkan Motori thundered 1-0 to the confident Österlen players, the challenge for Rydsgård became even tougher.
Two more goals, Zoran Jovanovic for Österlen and Oskar Andersson for Rydsgård, won the final players before the final signal. Rydsgård's reduction came when there were only seconds left, so the victory of the Österlen was never really threatened. Österlen showed class throughout the cup and the victory certainly gives the group additional confidence for the season. Results in the final: Rydsgårds AIF-Österlen FF 1-2.
24-year-old Furkan Motori, who previously belonged to Trelleborgs FF and now most recently Karlslunds IF became ready for Österlen FF in December and thus takes a title with his new team just a few weeks after signing the contract. There were a lot of finishes and good goals for you during this cup, is it the right or left foot that stands for most finishes? - The right is perhaps the best foot, but the left is almost as good. We have one level higher in our squad than everyone else and there was only that we would win this weekend, ”says Furkan Motori.
On Saturday, Österlen FF will play its first training match of the season against LB07. What does the week's preparation look like? - Tomorrow, I think it will be a really quiet training with a lot of focus on tactics, concludes Furkan Motori before pressing with the teammates for the traditional team image.
Kristianstad Arena Cup is Sweden's largest football club for children and youth teams. During the weekend, the class for boys born in 2004 was decided. The best Österlen team was Tomelilla IF's P04, which went all the way to the final.
The final against Kvarnby IK became a smooth story that had to be decided after an extension where eventually Kvarnby won by 3-2. In the P04 class 40 teams participated and among them also Kivik's AIF / Sankt Olofs IF, which did not, however, advanced from the group play.
That the success of the Kristianstad Arena Cup was not a one-off event for Tomelilla IF's P04 is evidenced by this impressive compilation: 2014 - bronze 2015 - gold 2018 - gold 2020 - silver
- The guys have done a very good tournament in the Arena cup in Kristianstad. Roger and I are very proud of the game and the behavior on and off the pitch. The future is blue-and-white, Tomelilla's leader Jonas Stålhammar writes on Facebook.
In Tomelilla's team in Kristianstad Arena Cup played: Leo Björklund, Adam Leufstedt, Wilmer Andersson, Tage Stålhammar, Adam Rönneholm, Jonathan Andersson, Edrin Avdullahu and Filip Nilsson. Congratulations guys!
Österlen FF has built a squad for the season, which largely consists of locally anchored players. This year's squad is also seasoned with a couple of players from Trelleborgs FF in the form of Zoran Jovanovic and Furkan Motori. Österlensport met head coach Jonas Stridsberg and assistant coach Jonas Mårtensson and talked about the squad and the upcoming season in division 2. This article is the first in a reporting series where Österlensport follows Österlen FF during the 2020 season.
It is in early January. Six degrees plus. Beech black and rainy. Inside the small club room at Skillinge IP, however, it is bright and warm. The players drop in, greet the leaders and prepare for the second training session of the year.
Already during the fall, Österlen FF called in what types of players are needed for this year's season. Personalities and characteristics and not least that there is some kind of relationship with someone else in the squad have been important pieces when the squad is put together. And that the players are connected to Österlen. 14 of the team's 19 players actually have some form of Österlen connection. Many of them have grown up in Österlen, or have moved here.
- We started working with the squad as early as August and it has been ready for a long time. We said we would have 18 players including two goalkeepers. Today we are 19 players and are very pleased with the look of the squad, says Jonas Mårtensson.
- There are players who contact us and want to play. We have rejected no to about ten players. It should be very safe cards if we are to bet on players who are not from the countryside. Players who can help and teach the younger players and reinforce what we want to build, Jonas Stridsberg adds, citing Zoran Jovanovic and Furkan Motori as two examples of this.
The squad is nailed, but by those who knocked at you, is there anyone or anyone you have been forced to refuse to whom you really wanted to put in the squad? - Yes, one or two, but no names, says Jonas Stridsberg secretly.
But can't it be solved anyway, it's only one or maybe two players? - No, it's not relevant at this time. We have built the squad clearly and are careful to keep our budget. Now we have built a good squad and then it is also important that we give these guys the confidence but also that we can manage the season budget-wise. There are some clubs that build a squad without funding, says Jonas Mårtensson.
Isn't the squad relatively small in terms of the number of players? - Yes, but it was even smaller last year. Then we had 15 outside players and a goalkeeper. It may be a problem to build a squad that is too large. It is also about giving the players playing time and using the whole squad correctly, says Jonas Mårtensson.
The Eastern season has started, but really started the preseason right after last year's season finale.
- We had a fantastic end to the training season last year when we trained about a month after the series ended. The intensity, morale and will during these trainings were at a very high level. And now that we have started, there is not much rust to grind away. We notice that the group wants something, that something is going on. The whole feeling is extremely good, says Stridsberg.
Three workouts per week are scheduled and during the first training of the year there will be a lot of games with ball. The thing about going down into the "mine" and running heavy weight training is not something that Österlen FF prioritizes. However, each player has an individual responsibility for his or her own physique. - We have players who are motivated and who work out at the gym themselves. They have good control over their own bodies. If we run strength training, it is football-related strength training. I think many players are too much in the gym compared to how much they train on football, says Jonas Stridsberg.
What kind of game system that Österlen FF should launch we have to wait to see. Stridsberg is still aware of certain criteria that must be fulfilled in the game model.
- We will try to own the game by being skilled with ball possession and in the transition to attack play, and when we should attack and not attack. That's what we're training the players for right now. When we have the ball it should lead to something that makes us knock out the opponent. We should not play around the ball unnecessarily. The purpose of the ball possession is to come to the attack and finish, says Jonas Stridsberg.
In conclusion, what does today's workout look like? - We will warm up and then play. I will press to be early in the starting positions no matter where on the pitch we have the ball. Being able to turn the game early and be in the top position on the court is important so that the opponents have to work harder when attacking. We should not wait for players when we have the ball, concludes Jonas Stridsberg.
In the wake of Kamratcupen's foot salt tournament, IFK organized Simrishamn Junior on Saturday Kamratcupen Junior for children born in 2009 in Jonebergshallen in Simrishamn.
Little Jonebergshallen is filled to the limit. Parents and leaders are helped to keep up with the tight schedule. 30 pieces of 13-minute matches are scheduled during the day. And then it will also be possible to buy burgers and sweets, tie someone's laces, present the players, comfort someone who has done badly and so on.
- It is a very packed schedule until 16.30:XNUMX this afternoon. There are matches all the time with a two-minute break between the matches, says Fredrik Strömberg, one of many leaders and parents who arrange the cup together.
The fact that the cup is arranged for children born in 2009 is because the organizers club has no less than 27 boys in that particular age group and who therefore set up with four teams. The other eight teams were divided into the following associations: BSH Österlen, FC Rosengård (two teams), Tomelilla IF (two teams), Kivik / Sankt Olofs IF, Brösarps IF and LEV 06.
The teams were divided into two groups and the cup was played with margins for faster and more intense games. The new regulations say that you must not count results in this age class. But of course, the children have control over who wins and loses, and who scores. A lot of parents and leaders are also watching it.
- It is fun to see when the children realize how they can use the coffin and weigh in, concludes Fredrik Strömberg, who hopes for next year more participating teams.
The best women's team in football, Hammenhögs IF, is coached this season by Tony Ard and Anders Palmér. Two experienced coaches hoping for a top position in division 1 also in 2020. Österlensport caught a coach duo in the Färsingahallen in Sjöbo during Blentarpscupen where we crawled into a room basement and let them tell how the top in one should be reached.
This article is the first in a series of articles where Österlensport follows Hammenhög's ladies during the 2020 season.
Ard and Palmér don't care much about the result in the Blentarp Cup. However, they are glad that there were no injuries during the cup, which was unfortunately the case at the end of last football season and which then partially eliminated the opportunity to advance to the Elite.
This year's squad, what do you have to say about it? - We have lost many good players from last year, some with serious injuries. But we also got a lot of good girls. Then we have managed to retain many, so we are a squad of nearly 25, including three goalkeepers. Eight of these 25 are new acquisitions. In addition, two players will probably come back soon after becoming mothers, which will be a bonus, says Anders Palmér, who during three seasons with Hammenhög has collected the same number of third places.
- This year we try to get the maximum out of the squad by sharing the responsibility of the coach. Tony and I have different qualities and we have no prestige in who does what. It will be a boost, we think, continues Anders Palmér and hands over to Tony Ard.
- We think this is a good mix and honestly I think a top three placement is possible. But each season has its own story. Anders and I think the same way and when a player gets an opportunity, it is up to the player to take that opportunity, and when you take the opportunity you have more chances to develop. We want to develop the players at the same time as we want to market Hammenhög as an association and promote the football at Österlen. Hammenhög is a small village in a small village and I want us to become a gathering club for young talented players, says Tony Ard.
Some young talents have already had the chance to train with Hammenhögs IF. It is a good school with two experienced coaches and a large group that contains many good players. - Hammenhög must be a good alternative for girls who want to play Division 1 football. Some of them may even want to invest in going all the way up to Damallsvenskan, Anders says.
Last summer, Hammenhögs IF organized a successful summer camp. Around 40 young players participated. It was a good opportunity for new players to get interested and get into the sport. Ard and Palmér hope that the camp can be arranged also this coming summer.
In the past there were a lot of long balls that applied to Hammenhög's ladies. Now the team is practicing a lot of ball possession where the players should, and dare, hold the ball. Twice a week the girls practice soccer which is less than many of the series competitors. Both Tony and Anders want the number of training sessions to increase in the future. However, some of the younger ones get additional training opportunities thanks to the football academies.
- The girls who also train at school will be good players. We definitely want to increase the number of training opportunities, but some of the older players are unfortunately difficult to get along with. We focus on making the workout very effective and well-planned and are often at the sports field 90 minutes before the training begins, says Anders Palmér.
What kind of football will the audience see on Hammondavallen this season? - There are two goals on a football pitch, one at each end. We do not want the players to send the ball away 30 meters towards the other goal. We want the players to be comfortable and confident with the ball. Then you can develop as a player, says Tony Ard.
- Hammenhög has always been good backwards. Last season we scored 60 goals and conceded 26 I think so we are on the right track even when it comes to the offensive, Andes Palmér tabs.
The Blentarp Cup in Futsal this past weekend was a disappointment for the girls from Hammenhög. Two 0-1 losses and one draw were not enough for advances from the group play. Julia Mellberg scored Hammenhög's only goal in the Blentarp Cup.
How's the feeling for the season? - It feels good. We have got a lot of good players and on Friday we will play paddle to get to know each other even more, says Julia Mellberg.
On the association's website, Julia Mellberg is listed as a midfielder but has also played in other positions. What is your role in the team? - I can play a bit everywhere but especially strikers. I started as an outside back and have progressed in positions via the edge but now it is the most offensive game that applies. I also try to spread energy on and off the pitch. It should be a little lattjo too, says Jula Mellberg.
Already on February 1, Hammenhög's girls will compete against Kristianstad's DFF's Swedish team in a training match in Kristianstad. - The same night we play the Nils Holgersson Cup. A small crash but we would like to play the game against Kristianstad. It will be a real challenge and value meter, and a fun match for the girls to play, ”concludes Anders Palmér.
