Tough return awaits Ystad in the European qualifiers

Tough return awaits Ystad in the European qualifiers
Written by Joachim Orrenius / 28 October, 2019

Carl Persson put the visitors' defensive players into the job throughout.

0-4 at home at Sandskogens IP in the double meet against division 3 team Hestrafors IF in qualifying for the amateur cup UEFA Regions Cup. The coming weekend's return on away plan will be a tough task for Ystads IF.

Already in the fourth minute, the visitors created their first goal chance on a windy Sand Forest's IP. Minutes later, it was YIF's turn when Edin Sarhatlic finished off from a narrow angle. Hestrafors had some more ball possession in the swinging first half where Ystad occasionally threatened with balls out to left-hander Carl Persson, who did not, however, get away from his guards. Halfway into the half, Ystad washed out a bunch of corners that created some disorder in the visitors' penalty area.

Ystad was close several times but Hestrafors goalkeeper kept zero.

A few minutes later it was Hestrafors who created pressure towards the home goal with several open positions. In the 35 minute the visitors' pressure resulted in Chris Makindu's close range. In the extra time of the first 45, Ystad got another corner where the ball danced just above Hestrafors goal line, or was the ball clean off the line? The referee did not think so, half time 0-1.

The second half started with Ystad being forced into a center-back exchange, Gustav Göransson out and Jonathan Jensen in. The same course of events as in the beginning of the first half when Emil Svensson replaced Alexander Bernhoff in the midfield.

Ystads Emil Svensson was replaced early in the match and made a good day job in the midfield.

Carl Persson continued his runs, now from the right, and had a couple of runs to the right of Hestrafor's goalkeeper. The visitors were clearly the better team in the second half and after Emil Pettersson's 0-2 goal there was no snack. Ystad tried to push forward but Hestrafors showed both speed in the conversion game and efficiency in the closing, which punished the home team two more times, Sajad Mohammadi and Emil Pettersson. Final result 0-4 which of course becomes difficult to turn over on Saturday when the return game is played. But how would the match picture have been if the receipt ball had been approved at the end of the first half?

The UEFA Regions Cup is an amateur tournament where teams between division 2 and 7 can register. Ystads IF and Hestrafors IF were the only teams in Sweden to register. Conquering teams in the double meet will therefore also become Sweden's representative in the continuing qualification that will be played this summer.

Get to know the orientation talent Elin Nilsson

18th of May 2020
Elin Nilsson

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. The first of the eight young people to get to know is the orientation talent Elin Nilsson.

Name: Elin Nilsson
Born: 2002
Birthplace: Ystad
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.

Österlen FF part 3 - Ronny, a supporting part of the team building

2th of May 2020
Ronny Andersson one of Österlen FF's team leaders.

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.

Ronny Andersson at the ticket booth at Skillinge ip.

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.

Ronny Andersson - one of the team members who, in the proper sense of the word, carries the team.

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.

Hammenhögs IF part 2 - great longing for the series start

18th April 2020
Hammenhögs IF.
Picture Anders Palmér.

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.

Anders Palmér, trainer for Hammenhögs IF.

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.

Salmon trolling attracts winning shells to Simrishamn

11th April 2020
Hanna Claesson from Team Sjösjuk.

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.

Boat trailers are neatly lined up next to restaurant Röken in Simrishamn.

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.

During trolling fishing, several rods are mounted around the boat's rail.

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.

If you are interested in fishing in general and trolling fishing in particular, the group is recommended Simrishamns Trolling on Facebook.

Catch fishing on you all trolling fishermen!

Österlen FF part 2 - Österlen glared at Tomelilla

March 31, 2020
Zoran Jovanovic paints after a fine pass from Victor Blixt.

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.

Österlen FF's Hugo Bjurnemark in white stretches out his long right leg and sends in 2-0.

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.

Jonas Stridsberg and Jonas Mårtensson have a good feeling for the season.

- 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.

Tomelilla IF's head coach Magnus Högström.

- 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.

Cimrishamn's chance to qualify away in crazy match

March 8, 2020
FC Cimrishamn in light blue lost the match against Hofterup's IBF 8-9.

The conditions for Saturday's home game against Hofterup's IBF in Jonebergshallen were clear. It required victory for FC Cimrishamn for the chance of Division 3 qualifying to live on.

A tagged FCC got full speed already in the first attack but it took until the fifth minute before the home team's Andreas Björborn's pass ruled on an opponent and sailed in a wide arc into Hofterup's goal. Hofterup came into play with only four substitutes. Would they be able to withstand FCC for 60 minutes? After eleven minutes came the first reply, a shot from far into his own half in numerical sub-position! and flip it was leveled. Three minutes later, the FCC took the lead 2-1 through Albin Hammargren. FCC controlled most of the game in the first period and also created the most positions, but Hofterup adjusted with fast counter-attacks and sharp shooting from a distance. However, it was a powerful solo performance by the best player of the pitch, Linus Persson, who prayed for Hofterup's second receipt up to 2-2. The time taken in period one had then reached 17.46.

The second period barely started before the FCC again took the lead when Albin Hammargren blasted the ball into the net until 3-2. Could the home team be able to move on to a two-goal lead now? Nope, Hofterup replicated only half a minute later by another lightning fast counter up to 3-3. New home lead after over three minutes through Veton Gashi. Undulating games during this period where the team was alternated with unnecessary ball pins and fine striker combinations. Hofterup received another receipt until 4-4 10.29 into the middle period. Three minutes later Andreas Björnborn showed class when he fell 5-4 to the home team with a backhand.

Andreas Björborn, on one leg, and Tobias Ehrnborn were together behind one of the goals.

But this was it with Hofterup's quick counter-attacks. This time it wasn't even a minute before the away team's fifth receipt was a fact. After 15.14 it was time again. So for a new home lead, when Fredrik Jeppsson duly pressed 6-5. At 17.27, Hofterup was awarded a penalty that was well managed until 6-6 and just over a minute later the guests score their second goal in numerical sub position until 6-7 lead! The crazy second period ended with FCC's receipt through Tobias Johansson. 7-7 after two periods, puh!

Two minutes into the third period, Tobias Ehrnborn released Andreas Björborn who, in numerical terms, again gave his FCC the lead. But another penalty laid the foundation for Hofterup's seventh receipt! 8-8 with half the period left in a match that was completely impossible to predict the outcome of. FCC drew on an expulsion that Hofterup took advantage of after 16.42 until 8-9 lead. Another receipt hunt was started but closer than a post hit the FCC did not come this afternoon. Hofterup held off and FCC's opportunities to reach the positive qualifying spot are thus gone. Two meaningless matches remain for FCC - away against Malmhaug IBF and at home against IBF Svedala.

Victor dropped the giant and won gold

March 3, 2020
Victor Pizarro

The juniors in the Austrian start-up kickboxing club Wellnez Weekend Warriors competed this past weekend in All Style the Future # 3 in the Eriksdalshallen in Stockholm. In the weight class minus 72 kg, Victor Pizarro met Destiny Aibueku. No small challenge if you take a look at the picture.

In All Style, participants from muay thai, kickboxing, MMA, kung fu, karate, shootfighting and taekwondo meet under a unique and common rules system. The score count goes like this: kick to the head gives three points, kick to the body gives two points and hits that hit give one point.

Victor Pizarro actually belongs to the weight class minus 64 kg but this time competed in the class minus 72 kg where he in the final was placed against it, in size, superior Destiny Aibueku. But when the match started, Victor showed that size does not matter.

- Victor took a convincing win in both rounds, says coach Martin Andersson of Wellnez Weekend Warriors.

What did you think when you saw your gigantic big opponent?
- I knew he was slim and tall but not that long. I almost got a sore throat when I looked up at him. I met him with many blows to both the body and the head which scored. But he was so tall that it was impossible to try to kick his head, says Victor Pizarro.

What tactics did you have?
- I wanted to go near him so he didn't get as many kicks from a distance. Hard heavy blows to his body and head, concludes Victor Pizarro.

In the finals of the weight class minus 64 kg, the club mates from Wellnez Weekend Warriors met Måns Åkerfeldt and Ali Mosavo in a friendly match that Måns Åkerfeldt won.

Wellnez Weekend Warriors - coach Martin Andersson, Victor Pizarro, Ali Mosavo and Måns Åkerfeldt.

On April 25, Wellnez Weekend Warriors will head to the Eriksdalshallen in Stockholm to compete again. This time in a much larger competition with both junior and senior classes.

Cimrishamn hangs on the top team

11 th February 2020.
Thomas Stålhammar # 8 played his first home game for FC Cimrishamn when IBK Stanstad were defeated by clear 5-1.

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.

A-team debut for # 68 Johannes Jeppsson.

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.
