Rydsgårds AIF won the Nils Holgersson Cup for the first time.

64 teams were registered for this year's, the 15, the Nils Holgersson Cup in Skurup. When the final 20 minutes were finished, one of the two organizer clubs, Rydsgårds AIF, was victorious after the final victory over Lunnarps BK. The third prize was won by Gärsnäs AIS.

In one semi-final, Lunnarps BK surprised by knocking out one of the pre-favorites IFK Malmö with 3-2. Rydsgårds AIF went to the final by defeating 3-1-Vellinge IF. In the final, Rydsgård took an early lead before Lunnarps Fredrik Ahl thundered in the receipt with the left foot. After Rydsgård did 2-1, Lunnarp had difficulty unlocking Rydsgård's stable defense. Closer than a bar meeting did not come Lunnarp and at the end of the finals Rydsgård made 3-1 and thus secured the title.

Lunnarps BK one team ended second in the Nils Holgersson Cup. Here the goalkeeper Angelo Demdal receives the second prize.

The match for the third prize between Vellinge IF and Gärsnäs AIS became an even event where the law was followed up until 3-3 which was also the position after full time. The extension also ended the draw, 0-0. Penalties were settled and Gärsnäs won, which thereby took a qualifying third place.

Gärsnäs AIS made a very strong cup - third with 61 teams behind.

The pre-advice was of course at Lunds BK from division 1 and the division 2-law Österlen FF, Kulladals FF and IFK Malmö. But it turned out that there was a lot of football know-how even in the law from the lower divisions. Not least impressed several Österlen teams. In fact, half of the quarter-finals law was law from Österlen - Tomelilla IF, Spjutstorps IF, Gärsnäs AIS and Lunnarps BK. And two of these reached all the way to the pallet location - Lunnarps BK second and Gärsnäs AIS third.

- We are defending ourselves pretty well, especially today during the playoffs. Everyone helps backwards and there were small margins in the final, taking the post that almost took us to 2-2 as an example. We have 62 teams after us in any case, said Lunnarp's coach Magnus Andersson right after the final.

You didn't really get the attack game in the final in the same way as before during the playoffs.

- No, Rydsgård is disciplined, big and strong and doesn't offer a millimeter. It suits us worse, in the previous matches we could against, we could not in the final. We had two teams in the cup and we wanted to put up with two even teams and considering that was the final place even better, Magnus Andersson concluded.

Gärsnäs AIS also made a very impressive effort.

- We are a strong group that takes step by step. We have reached the semifinal in many tournaments, now is the last step we need to work on. We are satisfied and put the puzzle pieces in place, said Gärsnäs AIS coach Ola Nilsson after the awards ceremony.

How does it look before the upcoming season?

- We have had to keep the squad and got some player so it looks good. Last year we were newcomers and reached a qualifying spot upwards. This year we will try to get up, Ola Nilsson concluded.

Nils Holgersson Cup was arranged by Rydsgårds AIF and Skivarps GIF.

Heavy series premiere for FC Cimrishamn

8 October 2018

FC Cimrishamn's premiere in the floor dance division 3 southern Skåne away against IBK Genarp became a real bottom button. And it didn't get any better that three goals were made by the FCC's former coach, Anders Bäckman, now in Genarp, who then caught a hat trick on his former teammates in Cimrishamn.

Genarp only needed 37 seconds to make the season's first series goal on Cimrishamn. After just over half the first period, the home team also made 2-0 but the FCC replicated quickly twice within 13 seconds! and equalized to 2-2. FCC's premiere shooter was Andreas Björborn and the receipt bombed Carl Ackerlén nicely from his back position.

In the second period, it sometimes heated to on the plane with several expulsions as a result. Genarp was allowed to take the lead again before Cimrishamn's Andreas Larsson proved that it was worth working hard in the press game - Larsson sent in the receipt until 3-3 after 8.42. Only 17 seconds later Anders Bäckman Genarp gave new management.

Cimrishamn created many positions during the second half of the match, but the margins were against the Simrishamn team this time.

Cimrishamns got up and played with a really good period in the middle of the final period, with a couple of numerical superiors, but more balls did not want to enter the opponent goal this afternoon. Instead, Genarp was able to run away and eventually won fairly with the whole 8-3.

Cimrishamn's coach Fredrik Hennigor has a lot to think about for the upcoming home premiere on Saturday when Teknologkårens IF from Lund comes to visit Jonbebergshallen. For example, how does the team get to an attack game that can more often loosen up the opponent's defense? Who will help last season's shooter Andreas Björborn with goal scorer? How does the defense game become more aggressive without causing expulsion minutes? On Saturday at 13.00 we will see if Fredrik Hennigor has found the answers.

During the rallycross in Tierp not only did William Nilsson quit four in RallyX Nordic. He also came second in the Swedish championship.

- After this season, which has been a bit like a mountain and valley course, I am very happy with it, says the 18-year-old.

This weekend the rally cross was settled on the Nordic ground. At Tierp Arena, the sixth and final race in RallyX Nordic took place, while the Swedish championship would crown their medalists. Before the weekend, William Nilsson was third in RallyX Nordic, and second in SM. Despite a tough competition, he manages to pinch both an SM silver and a fourth place in RallyX Nordic.

- I bring an SM silver from here. After this season, which has been a bit like a mountain and valley path, I am really happy with it. It shows that I still had a level and low level, which made me pick many points. Of course, I aimed higher in both SM and RallyX Nordic. So now I will delete a line and forget about this year's RallyX Nordic season, to come back strong next year. What happens then I do not know, except that I will be strong as satan, says Nilsson with a smile.

It was the first time ever that rallycross was running on the newly built track at Tierp Arena and in the class Supercar Lites, the whole 24 driver came to the start. Nilsson started the weekend strongly on the training, with a fourth and a sixth time. He later took a heat victory, but with mediocre times. He qualified for a semi-final and there the competition got a sad ending.

- It was a tough competition, both in terms of terms and results. The course changed through all the heats and it was mostly about surviving. I was second in the semi-finals when I got double points, and the competition ended there unfortunately.

Really, the show doesn't pack away the rally crossing for this year. November 24 November runs the last race of the RX25 International Series in Cape Town, South Africa.

Gärsnäs against qualifying for the four

8 October 2018

Gärsnäs AIS season as newcomers in division 5 ended with a successful second place, which means qualifying for division 4. In the last match of the series, IFK Ystad was defeated on Saturday afternoon with 2-1 in an entertaining match at home on Gärsvalla.

This became an attack-friendly match in the fantastic late summer weather that might as well have ended 3-3. Already in the fourth minute Niklas Bernhoff did 1-0 for Gärsnäs. After just over half an hour, IFK Ystad's Robin Nevelin drove the ball into the home team penalty area and ended with a cool lift until 1-1.

Robin Nevelin made a good match for IFK Ystad, who lost to Gärsnäs AIS. Here, Nevelin loads with the right.

Before the half-time rest, Gärsnäs had an 2-1 ball in goal, but was sentenced for offside. Backwards, Gärsnäs 19-year-old goalkeeper Sebastian Petersson directed his backline with clarity and active play. 11 stood half.

A goalkeeper who is active and communicates clearly is the basis for a stable defense game. This has Gärsnäs in the goalkeeper talent Sebastian Petersson.

The redirection made up for late victory goals

Gärsnäs centerback Robin Eriksson made a strong effort and cleared away many of Ystad's assault attempts with powerful breaks and certainly the main game. Both teams went for the victory and with the quarter left, Ystad's constant momentum Robin Nevelin again made a nice run that ended with shots against goal but Gärsnäs custodian Sebastian Petersson managed to save. When less than ten minutes remained, Gärsnäs coach Ola Nilsson directed his men. Up to the top, the center-back Robin Eriksson was sent, which only a few minutes later served Axel Andersson who was able to roll in 2-1, which also became the end result.

Qualities for the four are waiting - "we are not happy here"

Now there will be two qualifying matches against Skabersjö IF, which ended third in the southwestern division 5 series. Gärsnäs starts away on Wednesday this week and then home now on Saturday.

- We have worked hard all season with owning ball and when we got started our game in the second half of the second half we pressed on and did well. We qualified up to five in last year so we like anguish and are not satisfied here, says Gärsnäs coach Ola Nilsson who hopes for big public on Saturday at Gärsvalla.
