Brilliant spring sun over Skillinge IP's artificial turf. The Good Friday division 2 battalion between white-dressed Österlen FF and IFÖ Bromölla IF ended 1-1.
After a speechless first half where the home team dominated the ball possession, Viktor Ekblom pushed the lead ball into the 50 minute after a fine recording signed Jacob Blixt. The defense of the Österlen team did not allow Bromla's attack, with André Leandersson at the head, coming in many positions. But in the 61 minute, Bromölla was awarded a free kick that was lifted into Österlen's penalty area and all of a sudden Bromella's Filip Tomas had placed the ball in goal. The three home items had been turned into one. At the end of the match, Bromölla focused mainly on a decision, but the audience did not see any paintings or more artworks. The match ended fairly 1-1.
After three rounds in Division 2 eastern Svealand, Österlen FF has scored four points, one victory, one draw and one loss, which right now represents an eighth place. In the next round of the 27 April 14.00, Österlen FF meets IFK Hässleholm on the away plane.
The artificial turf at Skillinge IP lacks both bulletin board and audible speaker so hopefully the nature grass is playable at the next home match on the 4 May 14.00 when IFK Berga comes to visit.

Eight questions to Emma about the sport during the corona crisis
1. What is the best thing about your sport? The best thing about my sport is the strong bond you get to the horse, that you really understand each other. Since then I have always been an animal lover so getting to spend time with animals every day is absolutely fantastic!

Focusing on different things with all the horses, with Gulle it is that he should get a little better stamina so that he can keep up his big canter when the races start again. With Chilli it is just to keep her positive and have fun as I do not know how long she stays in the stable. Tina should be covered so she is a bit the same as with Chilli and since Tina is very alert when riding, I train a lot to keep her relaxed. Then I also work out five days a week myself.
4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately? Yes, have had to change quite a lot since we must not compete. So much more training on other courses and between that it is training that applies.
5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one? Our whole family is very much interested in sports, so I actually like most sports and watching most of what goes on the TV, not now, but when it is live sports. But I do no other sport than riding and the gym.
6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go? He did a competition with Chilli, where we were faultless in 110 cm.
7. What can a training week look like for you? This week looks like usual, some ground work passes, out to the woods and jump training!
8. The highlight of the spring, what are you most looking forward to right now and why exactly? I look forward to the races starting again, it may take longer or shorter time than postponed, but at least it will be fun to start competing again when it wants to start.

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.

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.

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. The first of the eight young people to get to know is the orientation talent Elin Nilsson.
Name: Elin Nilsson Born: 2002 Birthplace: City Lives: Eljaröd and Olofström Sports: Orientation Club: Andrarums IF Scholarship then: 2019
Meriter: Junior Cup winner in Skåne in class D18 11th at Medel-SM 15th at Night SM 2019 DM win in Long Distance and Ultra Long 2019 Second place at Night DM Third place on Sprint-DM Wins and pallet seats at national competitions
In July 2018 Elin Nilsson was named Talent of the Month in Ystad Allehanda. The following year she became a member of Team Network. There she receives a support for which she is happy to express her gratitude.
Elin says: "I am very grateful to have the opportunity to join the Team Network. It means a lot, as it can help me in many ways. For example, I can get lots of new equipment, like workout clothes or new orientation shoes. Through the financial support from the Network, I also get more opportunities to go to training camps and bigger competitions. ”
Eight questions to Elin about the sport during the corona crisis
1. What is the best thing about your sport? The best thing about the orientation is that it is a sport you have to do several different types of torque at the same time. You have to read the map and choose which route is best to take, while keeping the pace up and running. In this way, orientation can seem quite stressful, because you have to make quick and smart decisions in order to have a chance to get a good placement. However, that is what makes me love to orientate, because it is seldom that you have boring when competing, because you do not have time for it because you always have to be focused.
2. What motivates you to train as hard as you do? For the most part, it is my ambition to develop and get better that makes me train as much as I do right now, but then I also like to be active and exercise a lot because I feel very good about it.
3. What are you focusing on in your workout right now? Right now, the focus is on maintaining my workout volume and continuing with my basic training for a good while. I run a lot of running now and I have hopes to improve my fitness until the races get started again.
4. Have you changed anything in your workout lately? Since I started my distance education, my distance running has increased and the alternative training has decreased, because I do not have the same opportunities for what I had in Olofström. Before I used to, for example. run a barbell during the week, which is difficult to do at home. Otherwise, I try to have a similar training schedule that I've had before.
5. Are you interested in any other sport and if so which one? I'm not particularly interested in other sports, but I like to check out biathlon and slalom from time to time, especially relays in biathlon. I used to run parkour and gymnastics in my spare time before, but I completely stopped it when I started high school in order to focus on the orientation.
6. Did you compete for something in the spring and if so how did it go? I only had three races at the end of February, all during the same weekend. Those competitions went well I would say. I took it easy on Friday night orientation to focus on the competitions over the weekend. There were no fantastic placements that weekend, but that was to be expected. There was no terrain that suited me very well, plus I was still in my basic training and not in top form, because I had intended to top form for the JVM tests which would have passed in May, but they are now canceled. Otherwise, there were no more competitions, but there were two training camps, one in Jämjö and one on Bornholm.
7. What can a training week look like for you? On Monday, there is a quiet short distance session for about 1 hour and a strength session after that. On Tuesday there will be an interval session in the morning and then orientation training in the evening. On Wednesday it is strength in the morning and then a distance pass in the afternoon. On Thursday, it is orientation training. On Fridays I usually take a rest day. On Saturday it will be a distance and on Sunday I will run one more workout. In total, there should be between 8-10 hours of active training and 60-75 km of running during one week. Monday: Short distance workout 1 hour + Strength workout 30-45 minutes in the afternoon. Tuesday: Interval or run in the morning for 1 hour. Orientation training in the evening. Wednesday: Strength training in the morning. Distance workout in the afternoon 80-120 minutes. Thursday: Orientation training in the evening. Friday: Rest. Saturday: Distance 80-120 minutes. Sunday: Orientation training.
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 starting to compete again, because I really love traveling to new places and competing. In the near term, I yearn for the most until the summer begins and I can get a little more freedom about when to train, because right now I have to put my workouts in so that they do not collide with my distance learning.
Everyone at some point in life should work ideally with something you are passionate about. Doing a job completely without financial compensation is stimulating - you give and receive back. A rewarding activity simply. The entire Swedish sports movement is carried forward by non-working people at different levels. They are true heroes. In the third part of Österlen's report series about Österlen FF we meet one of these heroes, the Österlen profile Ronny Andersson who really knows what the volunteer work means and what it gives back.
The association life in Österlen has been a red thread through Ronny's life and he has come to know a lot of people over the years. Sometimes people come to town and talk to him.
- My wife used to wonder who that was. It is difficult to place them and often I have no idea, says 71-year-old Ronny Andersson.
For about five years Ronny sat in the ticket booth at Österlen FF's home games. In 2017, his wife passed away and as of the 2018 season he stepped in as one of the Österlen's team leaders. We meet Ronny at Skillinge ip for a while before one of spring training sessions.
How come you took the step from the ticket door to a team leader role? - I knew quite a few of the players before and saw many of the team's workouts. Sometimes I joined the away games as well. It became more and more and then they asked if I wanted to help. We are three coaches serving the guys. It is Carsten Nilsson who takes care of clothes and stuff and Erling Silverberg who takes care of any damage. And so do I.
What is your information? - I serve the guys with water, get balls, cones and vests so that it flows as it should during workouts and matches. The balls should be pumped with 0,85, which is a kind of weight measure. I also usually help so that we get match ads in Ystads Allehanda but it is a professional injury, Ronny continues as under 22! worked in the local magazine, including as an ad salesman.
Three training sessions per week Ronny is on site at Skillinge ip well in advance of training. In addition, he works at matches, both at home and away. Much of Ronny's leisure time is dedicated to the football club in his heart.
How come you have such a great commitment to Österlen FF? - It has become like a family with all the guys. New players blend well into the team. Then it is company for me too. Everyone greets everyone and I feel like part of the team.
The associate Ronny is also a secretary in Brantevik's IF's main association, the one that annually organizes Jazz under the stars at the sports ground in Brantevik.
- And before Brantevik I was in Gislövsdals IK where, among other things, I started the mature dance at Gislövs Stjärna. But my first association engagement was in Vitaby IS which in 1973 merged with Ravlunda IF and became RAVI.
What was your role in Vitaby? - I trained boy teams and I played in Vitaby as well.
Have you played in more clubs? - No, by the way I played a match for IFK Simrishamn's oldboys. I pulled off a muscle after half an hour's play but I kept zero, says Ronny with a smile.
So you were a goalkeeper during your football career? - I was really center but sometimes I was in goal too.
In addition to his involvement in Österlen FF and Branteviks IF, Ronny is also involved in Simrishamns Köpmannaförening where he handles the gift cards that the association sells.
On top of all the voluntary commitment are also the daughter and grandchildren. Although they may sometimes stand aside for Ronny's football interest, they are number one. - The grandchildren are the cream, they are so lovely!
If we move on to this year's sporting season. What do you think the opportunities of the East are? - One or two. Syrians and Österlen will fight for first place. Husqvarna can also be dangerous.
What is the difference between this edition of Österlen FF compared to last year? - Much better. We have several top players. But it's the same nice atmosphere in the team as always.
Ronny often returns during the interview to the team's mood. What do you think is the key to the mood? - The guys are about the same, and they thrive. Some might be better off here in Österlen where it is a bit calmer. Compared to cities. The coaches are good at getting the team together. They give rice and rose.
Finally, I ask Ronny if he has any fun event he has been with all the years in the Österlen association life. - It was a winter. I worked in the Vitaby general store and would run out of groceries. There was so much snow that the car could not be driven anywhere, so we packed the food in a sled and delivered the food with skis and sled instead, ”Ronny Andersson concludes.
This spring did not come true as we had imagined. But - the show must go on. Time for part 2 of the reporting series about Hammenhögs IF where we took the temp on the team's one coach Anders Palmér who incidentally turns 60 years next week.
Congratulations in advance, how's the situation? - Good, but you climb a bit on the walls. I work on planning for the season and then there will be some holiday days too, says Anders Palmér.
The latest in the series start is that Hammenhög's Division 1 series starts on June 14 and then as a single series with eleven matches. The premiere takes place against the newcomers Laholm FK. How do you think this arrangement will affect Hammenhögs IF? - It feels good, it is important to be involved from the beginning and find a top shape immediately. The classic of winning at home and taking points away can be road winning. We were lucky to get six home games and five away.
Eight Skåne teams, two from Blekinge and one from each of Halland and Småland make up Division 1 south Götaland. Here you have the team: Asarum IF FK (Blekinge), Nättraby GoIF (Blekinge), Laholms FK (Halland), Borgeby FK (Skåne), Dösjöbro IF (Skåne), Eskilsminne IF (Skåne), Hittarps IK (Skåne), Hammenhögs IF (Skåne), IF Bromölla IF (Skåne), Trelleborgs FF (Skåne), Åhus IF (Skåne) and Färjestadens GoIF (Småland).
Angelika Fridh, Sabina Losell Hansen and Helena Sassersson (formerly Palm) are three players to reckon with after they become mothers. For this trio, maybe the deferred start of the series came timely so that they had more time to get in shape? - There are players with the right attitude and great experience so I don't think it plays such a big role. They are not pigeons.
You have paused the training now, do you meet the players anyway? - No, we will not meet during the break. The players have their own responsibility to keep the training going and it seems to work for sometimes when I am out and about driving the car I see someone running.
A total of nine players are new compared to last year's squad. Enna Kurbegovic, sisters Alicia and Irma Thoresen, Disa Hellwig, Hanna Larsson, Frida Kristensson, Matilda Larsson, Emma Andersta and Erika Gunnarsson. - We have a good team, a younger team compared to last season. The squad consists of 24 players and we feel much more stable and have a better width than last year. The competition is razor-sharp.
With some distance to the three training games you had to play before the involuntary break, what do you have to say about the matches? - I am pleased with the achievement and morale even though we lost all three. All the players do a great job and take steps forward in development. Several of the new players impress. Two 13-14 year old talents from Pandora practice with us, it's fun. A breakdown, however, for Alexandra Frej who was injured.
How are the thoughts about the summer camp that you organized last year and which became a success last year, will it come to an end? - We are planning to implement it again this year, but we will move it to August.
Finally, what are you most looking forward to right now? - To start the series game, I long for the premiere of Laholm, concludes Anders Palmér.
The salmon fishing off the coast in Simrishamn during the early spring is widely mentioned and attracts both Swedish and foreign trolling fishermen annually. In some years, international matches between Sweden and Denmark are also organized. This special year is not an official competition, but the enthusiasts are still flocking to Simrishamn.
Some 60 trailer trailers, many of which are Danish, are parked on the lawn between the restaurants Röken and Strandpaviljongen.
It is early Easter eve morning and most have already launched and gone several miles out to sea. Hanna Claesson and Christoffer Rönneberg from Team Sjösjuk have just put the boat in the icy water and are now preparing for a full day on the lake. Radiant sun, blue skies and light breeze make them company. Hopefully some silver-shiny salmon.
- Today there is no competition, only nice weather. It's nice on the lake, ”says Hanna Claesson.
Around the rail on Team Sjösjuk's well-equipped boat, there is room for 14 rods that at different depths should try to catch salmon. After weighing, most of the salmon are released back into the ice-cold sea and although there is no official competition, the fishing team obviously compares with each other. Who got the most and who took the biggest are questions that most who have ever fished have been faced with.
- Yesterday there was a boat that picked up several salmon, one of which weighed over 18 kilos, concludes Hanna Claesson before she and Christoffer paddled east out of the marina in Simrishamn.
Both Österlen FF and Tomelilla IF got scheduled training matches this weekend. At short notice, the law instead decided that they would meet each other on Skillinges plastic grass on Saturday.
Some 50 spectators had lined up at a safe distance around the sun-drenched sports ground. Almost no wind. Spring is coming!
Initially, the teams knew each other and Tomelilla (Division 3) faced Österlen (Division 2) in a good way. The right-hand side of the Österlen looked right where Victor Blixt's running forward opened up for right-back Oskar Blixt to follow behind and create pressure in the attack. The lightning duo's cooperation and position changes were nice to see.
After just over 20 minutes Österlen rolled the ball in the middle with several one-touch passes leading to a good position for Furkan Motori but Filip Malmqvist, now back between the posts in Tomelilla after a short victory in just Österlen, made a perfect outing. The situation led to a couple of corners and on one of them Motori took revenge on Malmqvist when with his delicate left foot screwed the corner directly into the goal!
Österlen had a firm grip on the ball possession and Tomelilla had to focus on holding positions in the defensive game, which would prove to be a tough task with an Österlen on exuberant playing humor. 2-0 after almost 40 minutes when a Furkan Motori post dived into the penalty area in front of the feet of Hugo Bjurnemark who hit and pushed the ball from close range. Bjurnemark, new from Sjöbo IF where last year he had the role of center back, would also prove to be an effective finisher.
A minute later, Victor Blixt released Zoran Jovanovic who easily put the halftime score 3-0.
"Quite soft, too few transitions from establishment games to attack games," Österlen head coach Jonas Stridsberg said in a pause.
In the second half, Tomelilla decided to put higher pressure on Österlen so that they would not have as much ball on their own half. Tomelilla succeeded in the beginning, but on the other hand it created opportunities for Österlen. Ten minutes into the half, Österlen rolled up a pattern attack that ended with Furkan Motori lifting a high ball against Hugo Bjurnemark who, in the middle of the penalty area, duly knotted 4-0. 5-0 made Furkan Motori himself after a pass from Victor Blixt. Another well-timed post reached Hugo Bjurnemark who knocked in 6-0. Österlen had a 15-minute period here which was really really good and where the game breathed a lot of joy and finesse! The smattering of Österlen's dominance came halfway into the second half when a powerful rib shot from Tomelilla bounced out to Anders Nilsson who routinely rolled in the ribs until the 6-1 reduction.
- So damn unnecessary, Jonas Stridsberg thought of that backwards goal.
Victor Blixt ended the goal after turning and turning in Tomelilla's penalty area and then placed the ball along the grass post. Final score 7-1.
Goals for Österlen: Hugo Bjurnemark 3, Furkan Motori 2, Zoran Jovanovic 1 and Victor Blixt 1. The goal of Tomelilla: Anders Nilsson 1.
Tomelilla's head coach Magnus Högström summarized the match like this.
- Österlen was the number bigger than us today, they do everything much faster and were better at all positions. Their first three goals are three individual mistakes of ours and then it becomes difficult and difficult with motivation. We did not have much to oppose and it was not easier because two of our players had to change due to injuries. In the second half we pushed higher but then there were gaps in the back instead. But at least we work for 90 minutes.
Although it was purposefully gone, the morale remained with Tomelilla. Is there anyone you want to highlight in your team? - I think Johannes Persson and Robin Nilsson work well. Anders Nilsson is also trying to bring life to the team and will be raised for it, says Magnus Högström.
We turn the interview microphone to the head coach of Österlen. Win with 7-1 against a good Division 3 team, not much to complain about today huh? - We are pleased with how we conduct the match. The plan was to try to have patience and solve the game situations that arose from our game idea, says Jonas Stridsberg.
The edge game with Victor and Furkan and hungry outside backs that followed up the attacks looked exciting, is that something you have been training for? - Well, the edge game is a clear indication of how we build our game idea.
Fun to see Hugo Bjurnemark's smart runs and sharp main play. You start getting plenty of seizure options now, will it be difficult to choose who / whom to play forward? - Hugo made a strong performance against Tomelilla. He followed the role of forward in the game idea in an excellent way. We have alternatives at all positions in the team, not just in the offensive positions.
Robin Jakobsson started the match as a striker but ended as a center back, how do you want to use him? - The most important thing is that we achieve the highest possible capacity based on the game idea. But of course it creates more opportunities offensively with Robin as the center back in the play-up phase where he gives us balance in the team. He controls it in an elegant way.
There are also elegans on the eastern midfield where Fredrik Hansson and Zoran Jovanovic, among others, float on light fast feet.
Viktor Ekblom did not play against Tomelilla but made a nice test play for Landskrona Bois. Is he on his way away or is he left in Österlen as the series starts? - Ekblom made a good impression on Landskrona. According to Landskrona, however, there is a bit more before he is at that level. One step he can take in 2020. We are in contact with Landskrona and we are glad for that. It also opens up to other players, which is positive.
Freddie Brorsson is the latest addition to the Österlen. He has played most in the midfield, is that where you should use him? - Freddie is a strong offensive player that we can use mainly centrally, but also on one edge. Jonas (Mårtensson - assistant coach) and I are happy with the squad build. We are satisfied with our highest level in the meetings with the div 1 team. The positive is that we have gained competition in all positions and that several players have developed in the game idea in a short time.
In the last interview you said that "the feeling is extremely good", do you have the same feeling today? "Yes, the feeling is still extremely good," concludes Jonas Stridsberg, who during the Easter week gives the squad free time and then gas up against the postponed series start.
More training matches will be planned for both Österlen FF and Tomelilla IF. Look out for Österlensport's calendar.
