Magnus Högström takes over Tomelilla IF
Written by Joachim Orrenius / 12 October, 2018

Magnus Högström returns to the mother club Tomelilla IF.

After a couple of years as a child and youth manager in IFK Simrishamn, Magnus Högström returns to the mother club Tomelilla IF, where after the qualifying qualification he takes over the a-team.

The players in Tomelilla IF have today found out about the coach change. Current coaches Mikael Göransson and Johan Montan lead Tomelilla through the qualification for division 3, which starts now for the weekend. Hopefully the Tomelilla will win the qualifying group and can continue the investment in division 3 also next season, then with Magnus Högström as head coach.

A dream to lead the mother club

- It has always been a dream to lead my mother club. Now it was the right time, my children are big and I have the time. It will be a great challenge. We are working on getting an assistant coach and hopefully we will keep our goalkeeper coach for another year, ”says Magnus Högström.

Will you be able to keep your fingers in control now during the qualification?

- I'm just going to watch the games and have nothing to do with the coaching in the qualifier. I take over after qualifying.

Your goals with Tomelilla in the short and long term?

- In the short term it is of course to win the qualification and stay in the third. In the long run, I want younger hungry players who want to work out and take a hard job both on training and in matches. That's the attitude I go into and I want to be reflected in the players.

"I am human connoisseur"

Magnus Högström has the second highest coach training (UEFA-A) that can be obtained.

Your strengths as a coach?

- I am very straight, honest and good at pushing the players. I keep my feet on the ground and run the football I believe in. I want a lot of ball stuff session, games within the team sections and signals between the players. I want a structured assault game with a lot of people in the box. I am human connoisseur and many enjoy my surroundings.

What will you miss with IFK Simrishamn?

- Everything, I enjoy being great in Simrishamn and that is why I have stayed here for about two and a half years. I like to open the door in the future for Simrishamn but now it is Tomelilla that applies.

Will not miss the wind

Something you will not miss?

- The wind in the pre-season. It's a little special. I leave Simrishamn just as I want to leave, with the flag in the top. I feel that I have done a good job and tonight, the 15 team is playing for the series victory in the northeastern series. The guys have taken big steps in their football education, concludes Magnus Högström.

Who replaces Magnus Högström as a youth coach in IFK Simrishamn was still unclear on Friday night.

Second straight 0-1 loss to Tomelilla

Ahead of Saturday's home match at Tomelilla IP in Division 3 South, Tomelilla IF's coach Magnus Högström believed that IFK Trelleborg would try to find behind its own backline via long balls to fast strikers. It turned out to be a completely accurate pre-analysis. The visitors' lead goal five minutes into the second half was the match only, but a dramatic finish gave Tomelilla a point.

The first quarter's ball possession to the guests while Tomelilla mostly devoted to covering areas backwards. When in an open position for Trelleborg, Tomelilla had control of the guests' attacking play. After the drinking break 20 minutes into the first half, the home team was able to move up the positions and pushed Trelleborg higher up the court, which also paved the way for a couple of nice long balls on the right. However, Trelleborg's defense line could quite easily stop Tomelilla's attack.
What did you say to the players at the break?
- Offensively, we wanted to get more on our right. Here we would also start by pushing some longer strikes behind their left back and then putting pressure and then in the strikes afterwards move on to more ball possession and try to solve their first pressure on us. Here it was for poor movement and playability for the ball holder. That's what we talked about in the little "time out" and that made us feel good, "says Tomelilla's coach Magnus Högström.

The visitors finished the first 45 with three good goals and Tomelilla's most dangerous goal chance also came at the end of the half. Kevin Ketteridge drove the ball towards the penalty area, changed direction and drove a few more yards before pressing off with the right. The shot was effectively blocked by a Trelleborg defender. 0-0 after the first half.

Already five minutes into the second half, the visitors Mathias Andersson ran through the Tomelilla defense and was able to place 0-1.

- An unnecessary goal that we should be able to defend ourselves from and keep track of. We talked at break about how psychologically important the first goal is in this heat. Now the uphill starts. But still, I think we try to stick to a mix of longer and short plays, says Magnus Högström.

The downside boosted Tomelilla which put better pressure in the press play resulting in a few half chances. The speed and runs were with the attackers Kevin Ketteridge and Erik Ekholm but the weight in the middle was missing which made it pretty easy for Trelleborg's defender. In search of receipt, Tomelilla made five bytes. More studded legs moved Tomelilla's attacking positions in a straight game while the team opened backwards.

The last ten became a real roller coaster on the hard and bumpy lawn. Anders Nilsson screwed a corner directly into the cross. The visitors had an open goal in a changeover but where Olof Nilsson cleared the finish line. The best opportunity came in overtime when Tomelilla was awarded a penalty when Kasper Svensson was pulled down in the penalty area. Olof Nilsson pulled from the penalty spot but Trelleborg's goalkeeper made a nice save which became the final event of the match.

The penalty save by IFK Trelleborg's goalkeeper was the final action of the match.

Someone or some players you want to highlight?

- Filip M, Olof Nilsson, Robin Nilsson, Anders Nilsson and Erik Ekholm were good.

The next challenge will be Veberöds AIF on away plan. That match will not be played until August 8.
What does the schedule look like for you now during your stay, workouts, workouts, vacations?
- Exercise Sunday, then a two week break. The guys have self-training the third week. Thereafter, the collective training begins again on week 30. Training match against Vejby (division 3) on August 1 and autumn start on August 8 against Veberöd.

Result Tomelilla IF-IFK Trelleborg 0-1 (0-0). 0-1 Mathias Andersson.

Österlenlagen beat Bromölla x 2

June 23th, 2020
Tilde Johansson bounced 1-0 for his Hammenhögs IF.

Österlen's two best football teams, Hammenhögs IF (div 1 ladies) and Österlen FF (div 2 men), were both pitted against Ifö Bromölla IF this past week.

The law from southeastern Skåne proved to be stronger than northeastern Skåne's. Full pot to the Österlen Act!

Hammenhög started the series with a tie against Laholm. Three points against Bromölla were therefore close to a must to keep up with the top of the women's div 1 series as this Corona season is played as a single series where of course every match and all points are extremely important.

- A tough match on the paper and on the pitch as always against Bromölla. A lot of struggle and physical football to wait, Hammenhög coach Anders Palmér said before the match.

The girls from Hammenhög grabbed the match directly and initially showed the most will and attitude at home on Hammondavallen's fine green. Well-balanced posts and corners into the guests' penalty area were moving. First ten minutes on points to Hammenhög. When Tilde Johansson bounced 1-0 after barely a quarter, it looked stable. The goal became a motivator for the guests from Bromölla who stepped up and pushed back the Hammenhögs defense.

Did you become anxious and wanted to monitor the management?
- No, I think more that Bromölla changed a bit and played a very clear 3-5-2 so after 1-0 we got it tough centrally, says Anders Palmér.

The visitors started the second half with a forced kick and after 55 minutes came the result when a Bromollas player could score 1-1 after a goal keeper's return. Now it was the home players' turn to tie their fists.

- We changed some positions so we got a better grip on them in the middle, says Anders Palmér.

The remaining match time had Hammenhög's most ball and also created some half chances up to 2-1 but it would take until overtime before the match was decided. Home team Josefine Rydle was lying in the grass after she hit her back. Teammate Tilde Johansson laid the ball over the sideline for Rydle to receive treatment for his injury. In such situations, it is customary for the opponents to return the ball when the player has received his treatment and the game can be resumed. This time, the Bromalla players took the ball themselves and attacked. The surprise and frustration of the home players who, in sheer aggression, managed to send the ball one last time in Bromolla's penalty area where Matilda Larsson appeared and was able to push in the victory ball. Great joy, and maybe even a certain amount of hurt considering the situation at Rydle's injury, at home camp.

- Very nice 2-1 goal where we fill with players in the penalty area. Rydle drops the ball and Matilda Larsson's run on the far post is cruel after 96 minutes. I want to emphasize the collective, the work of everyone, says Anders Palmér.

How did you perceive the situation after Josefine Rydle received treatment and who later led to the victory goal?

- We got a player injured, and kicked out the ball. Then it is an unwritten law to give the ball back to us. Instead, they made a long throw and attacked immediately. Not fair play directly if you say so. Very bad by their players, and their leaders didn't even respond. Embarrassing just, says Anders Palmér.

End 2-1 to Hammenhög. Four points after two rounds and Hammenhög's ladies hang out!

After the delayed spring, it was finally time for the Österlen FF's premiere this weekend. For the away stand was Bromölla, who in their first match had a 4-0 victory in the back.

From minute one, the guys from Österlen showed that they did not cheat with spring training. Running, aggressive, position-safe. And lead through Freddie Brorsson's nod on the corner already after 15 minutes. The dominance continued during the first 45 with position switching and fine play behind Bromolla's back line, which led to several good goals. But Österlen had to settle for a comfortable 1-0 lead.

After the break, Österlen became somewhat comfortable. Bromölla pumped on and owned the match during a period where they also created chances but the Austrian defense game with Merlin Nuhanovic as the last outpost was against Bromolla's attempt. After 75 minutes sprinting, Jacob Blixt switched to an attack all by himself, which he then finished by distinctly pushing the ball into the net behind Bromolla's goalkeeper. Premiership victory with 0-2 and Österlen keeps going!

Clear with new coach for Österlen FF

Since Jonas Stridsberg quickly left the head coach assignment for Österlen FF, it has been speculated who was napping on the assignment. Now it's finished. From June 1, the well-known player and coach profile Agim Sopi takes over responsibility.

Congratulations and welcome to Österlen!
How does this feel?
- Thanks, it feels great. I'd rather have a group higher up in the series system, but Österlen has a fantastic squad and a good project going on. A good mix of really good experienced players and young hungry players, says Agim Sopi, who has yet to meet the gaming group.

Agim Sopi likes to hire young talented players who also have the right attitude to reach a long way in their football careers. An example is two guys born in 2005 who have already made their way into FC Rosengård's a-squad in division 2.

Agim lives in the Malmö district with his family and on June 1, Agim rolls east for the first training session with his new squad of players.
How do you view the commute?
- No problem. When I trained Landskrona BoIS it was 45 min. Now it takes about 1 hour and 20 minutes so it's not a huge difference. I am used to commuting and during the trips I can relax and plan a little.

In the report series on Österlen FF, we will in future invite our readers to a longer interview with Agim Sopi.

Get to know the golf talent William Wistrand

23th of May 2020
William Wistrand.

The Österlen network is the corporate network with close to 100 entrepreneurs sponsoring, among other things, young sports talents from south-eastern Skåne. We asked eight questions to Team Nätverket's current eight fellows about how things are going with the sports betting right now. We wondered, among other things, how they motivate themselves to continue training, how the training has changed and whether it is any other sport that they are also engaged in, or instead. Here you will get to know the golf talent William Wistrand.

Name: William Wistrand
Born: 2005
Birthplace: Lund
Lives: Simrishamn
Sports: Golf
First club: Österlens Golfklubb
Current club: Österlens Golfklubb
Scholarship then: 2020

Meriter:
Ranked 1st in Sweden boys -05

William says: “Getting the chance to join the Network is fantastic. With this scholarship I get the opportunity to train more, go to more competitions and develop to reach my goals. I am extremely grateful that I get to join the Team Network and I will seize this opportunity that you have given me! ”


Eight questions to William about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about golf is being able to hit the ball and check exactly the right direction and length. It's not easy, though it may look like it. The charm and at the same time the frustration with the sport is that on one hole you can have as good a score as possible and then on the next hole it can be quite the opposite. I can't really put my finger on what it is but once you get stuck it's very fun and very addictive you just want to train and play more and more. Sometimes there may be some prejudice about golf that only old people play but that is not true but if you test then I think you get a slightly different view of the sport. Golf is a sport that everyone can practice and the risk if you try is that you might also get caught, just like me, for this strangely fun sport.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
My goal is to be the best in the world. If I want to reach that goal, I need to train and work purposefully all the time. Of course, it is fun to be as good as I am now, but I am not satisfied and I have to work hard to be much better. Of course I want to be with my friends in the summer and do fun things but I spend almost every day on the golf course and it's hard to find the time to be able to do it

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Right now I'm training for the season. I sharpen all the pieces in my game so I will be as good as possible when the season starts. This winter I have focused a lot on my technique and I feel that it has produced results as I hit better and longer strokes. Now I just want to get started with the game and be able to shoot really low scores.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Given covid-19, I have been able to train more than I could before spring seasons as there have been many competitions booked. Competition season has been postponed to June 30th. So until July I will be training a lot so I am prepared and in shape for the season to start.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
I also like to play floorball in the winter. It does so my physique is kept up for pretty much all winter. I usually play as a goalkeeper and it helps me as a golfer as mobility is very important in both sports.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
Unfortunately, I did not compete for anything this spring. Covid-19 has meant that the competitions are postponed or canceled until June 30th. It is very boring but there is nothing you can do about it. The only thing that can be done is to follow the restrictions imposed by the Public Health Authority. If everyone follows them, I hope and think we can get started on all sports, not just golf, in the middle of summer.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
My upcoming weeks will be filled with school, golf and homework. School goes first but I have to catch up with my workouts too so I have to plan properly what to do on different days. An ordinary week I practice golf on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. Tuesdays and Thursdays I plug.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
Right now in the spring there is unfortunately nothing I look forward to very much, but hopefully on July 1, all competitions will start. It will be as much fun as ever to compete again but right now you have to wait and train instead.

October 2013, right after Kornelia's 13th day, Kornelia was named the month's talent in Ystads Allehanda and became a fellow in the Österlen Network. Kornelia has played series in England for the London Academy, series in Denmark for Bornholm but now for Greve in the elite series and plays in Sweden for Eslöv in the Superettan where the team won 3 years in a row without having the opportunity to enter the highest series because Eslöv already has a team in the Pingis League.

Kornelia says: - In order to fully invest in my table tennis change I already school after grade 8 and then commuted to Källebergsskolan in Eslöv where I could practice table tennis in one of Sweden's leading clubs during school time. Nowadays I live in Eslöv and I spend my third of four years at the gymnasium with NIU Table Tennis. Therefore, the support from the Österlen Network is particularly important to me, since my table tennis bet would not have been possible without it.


Eight questions to Kornelia about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about my sport is when you reach a goal you have set and trained for a long time to manage.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
What motivates me to train hard is the desire to be able to play well in the series because it is a team effort and you do not want to disappoint your fellow players!

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
I have just had a rest since the season is over, but the focus will be on strength training for a while now.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
In the spring, before my rest, the focus was very much on match-like play, as there were many big competitions that you want to hone the form to. Even so, I started training in IFK Lund to get some change in training resistance, exercises and also be trained by my former Tomelilla trainer Christian Björklund.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
Recently, when the hall was closed to ping pong, I have played a lot of golf with my family. Since we are now also plugging away from home, it is incredibly nice to come out in the nice weather and play.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
During the spring, there was a lot of series play all over Sweden when the ping pong league would end. We finished in a 6th place, which means we will stay for next year as well. I have also competed in Borås, Örebro and Senior-SM in Söderhamn. Unfortunately, there were no placements in these competitions this year.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Upcoming training week will consist of training in Lund, two workouts on Monday and two workouts on Wednesday. As there are no longer any workouts in Eslöv, and the hall is extremely limited to a maximum of two people, there will be only a few workouts there during the week.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
The highlight of the spring would probably be the student for me after four years of high school. Don't know if it's something to look forward to anymore, but we'll see how it goes!

Football! I played football for about seven years before I started betting on athletics when I was about 13. I still want to play football but unfortunately this involves great injury risks.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
I have not competed because of the long-term illness, I would compete in Örebro as a test competition but it was canceled because of Covid-19.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Right now I run upper body strength 3 times a week and jog. The reason for this light training program is, as I said, my side effects of the medicine.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
There is not really any highlight in the spring because the racing season is in the summer. I would go to a 10-day training camp in Nerja, Spain, but it is canceled due to Covid-19.

To receive such financial support that I can use for equipment, accommodation or the opportunity to go to bigger competitions, I am very grateful. In addition, it is fun to meet other young people who invest in their sport and listen to upcoming lectures within the Österlen Network. "


Eight questions to Olivia about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
Overall, I think swimming is best especially because I think it's super fun! I work out seven workouts a week and I'm almost always tagged for upcoming workouts and time rolls on super fast. The community we have within our club is worthy of gold! Everyone hang out and support each other, we are one big family!

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
Above all, it is to see my development and to want to get faster and faster! Then it is super fun to train the way we do and with my swimming buddies, we are a great bunch! So it becomes easier to swim the "hard" morning workout when you are several and do it together.

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Right now, the focus is on training as hard as I can for as long as I can. I do not know when or if it will close down the swimming pool and then I have to find another solution. So now the focus is on getting the most out of my time in the water.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Not directly. We practice as we have always done and there have been no changes.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
For me, football has been a decent part of this at home. Dad has been a football player himself, so we have watched some of football. At the moment, it is not so much happening / played considering the circumstances.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
I think there have been four races so far. The first competition was in January after the Christmas break and it was marked. The body was not in the same shape as before, but I still managed to get some personal records. Then the training started for real and it was time for the first 50m competition in February. There it went perfectly okay but as always it is a bit difficult to walk from 25 m to 50 m as it looks so far! Overall, the times were completely okay, some over pers but I had thought that. The first and last big competition took place in Malmö. There I swam at the GP and managed to reach the final of 200 and 800 m freestyle. I persevered on my two hundred which was super fun and I am happy with my other efforts which were just a little over pers. The last competition was a "training competition" so there I swam a lot of races! Times were a bit over pers, but the focus was on testing new things and training on competing.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Now that almost all upcoming competitions are set we have a "mini" competition on Saturdays the last hour of our training session. There we swim between 50-200 m and try to be as close to our pers as possible. Whoever is closest to his pers percentages wins. On Monday we are invited to the “Mini Baptism” in Sjöbo where we will be a maximum of 50 and carry out a maximum of 4 races / person. I myself will swim 50, 100 and 200 m freestyle but also 100 m back swim. It will be fun to get away even if it is not like a regular competition, it is still something. Then we practice as usual with six additional workouts.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
What I look forward to most is to start the outdoor training and hopefully the outdoor season. Since things went very well in Malmö at the GP, I am tagged to start the 50 m season and see what I can achieve. Then I hope Sum-Sim 50 mi Landskrona will get rid of or moved forward as it is my very last Sum-Sim then I am too old.

The Österlen network is the corporate network with close to 100 entrepreneurs sponsoring, among other things, young sports talents from south-eastern Skåne. We asked eight questions to Team Nätverket's current eight fellows about how things are going with the sports betting right now. We wondered, among other things, how they motivate themselves to continue training, how training has changed and whether it is any other sport that they are also engaged in, or instead. Here you will get to know the orientation talent Fredrik Nilsson.

Name: Fredrik Nilsson
Born: 2006

Lives: Tomelilla
Sports: Karate
First club: Ystad karate club
Current club: Ystad karate club
Scholarship then: 2019

Merits / record: 5 times national champion JKA, 8 international WKF titles

Fredrik says: - I started karate in 2013. I already won the club championship with a white belt and I continued. Now I have also joined the network and it is very fun and exciting. It should be fun and see how things are going for the others in the network and maybe be a little spurred on by their successes. It feels good that the network is investing in me and I will do my best to not let them down!


Eight questions to Fredrik about the sport during the corona crisis

1. What is the best thing about your sport?
The best thing about karate is that you learn new things all the time. It requires a lot of concentration and you need good physics and I like that.

2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do?
I want to see my full capacity because I want to see how far I can get, but also because I find it very fun to go to the workouts.

3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now?
Now the most focus is on kata because we must have no contact whatsoever now during these times.

4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately?
Yes, it is only kata that said because we must not have contact now because of Covid-19. We must also not go to the training if we feel the slightest scratchy.

5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one?
I play some golf (hcp 11,2) and I find it quite fun but I have a completely different feeling for karate.

6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go?
I have been to the national championship in February. It went well because I took gold. Incidentally, the 6th national championship was the win in a row. The national championship is only held once a year. SM has no classes for 13 year olds, you must have completed 14.

7. What can a training week look like for you?
Sunday an hour of bike training and an hour of competition training. On Monday there will be fitness in the form of cycling, on Tuesday two hours karate, on Wednesday there will be more cycling, on Thursday one hour karate and on Friday even more for cycling.

8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly?
Right now, I am most looking forward to this fall's first competition because I miss the competition.
