Tough return awaits Ystad in the European qualifiers
Written by Joachim Orrenius / 28 October, 2019
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.
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.
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.
Gröstorps IF has made a strong season in division 6 which it is hoped to be crowned with an advance to division 5. First qualifier against Yngsjö ended with 2-1 victory.
Saturday's nightfall on Impevallen's long-haired and slightly uneven carpet started with the team feeling each other. After ten minutes, the home team's Anton Persson got a deep ball which at first appeared to be taken care of by the visitors but in the opposing situation Persson came loose with the ball and was able to place 1-0.
Gröstorp's defense usually took the lead from the visitors' attacking attempts but after half an hour the receipt was close when a ball was cleared away on the finish line by a home player. A while later, Gröstorp had a great position until 2-0 when Anton Persson released Emil Löfvall who missed the goal in open position. But the notorious shooter Löfvall (21 goal in the basic series) would revenge halfway into the second half as he sprinted loose on the right edge and dotted 2-0 to his Gröstorp. Yngsjö had a difficult time creating dangerous goal chances but a penalty in the 72 minute made the score 2-1 which was also the final result.
Return next Saturday in Yngsjö at 14.00 when a bus load of Gröstorp supporters supports his village on the spot.
In this weekend's home match against Södra Sandby, Tomelilla IF secured a new contract in division 3 thanks to a stable 2-0 victory. Already, the association is aiming for next year's season. Hall-dressing Simon Rosén (former assistant coach at Sjöbo IF) is accepted as assistant coach to TIF's head coach Magnus Högström.
- Simon is an ambitious and determined trainer and man who has good solutions for how we will come to an end in the final third. He wants to work with details in front of the opponents' penalty area, which he will have room to further develop during 2020, says Magnus Högström.
How will you divide the assignment between you? - We will use each other's strengths and I am convinced that we complement each other really well.
Status in the squad, who extends, new players in, who leaves? - Since we have no contracted players, we will be "hit" by the free month so I do not yet know exactly how the squad looks next season. However, many players have already said that they will stay 2020. In the next two weeks, we will take stock of our existing squad. When it comes to new players we have contacted some interesting players before 2020. There are more players to contact but with respect for other clubs that qualify, we will wait to contact until they have qualified.
How do you want to summarize the season and what do you want to develop for the next season? - I think we have become a more attacking team during my first year in Tomelilla. We have worked a lot with the build-up of games and the direct recovery when we lose the ball. Next year's goal is to continue working with our ball possession and become even clearer with our press game, and to spice this up with Simon's skills the last third to succeed in scoring more goals ahead, concludes Magnus Högström.
Trelleborg FF's creative midfielder Zoran Jovanovic agrees with division 2 club Österlen FF. Jovanovic, who nowadays turns 33 years, has been a member of Trelleborgs FF in recent years, where he has been TFF's top scorer for several years, not least three years ago when he contributed most of all to Trelleborgs FF returning to the Superettan.
The contract with Trelleborgs FF expires after this season and thereafter he belongs to Österlen FF for the next three years.
A class acquisition, how does this come about? - I know Trelleborgs FF and several of the players quite well since my time as a leader in the club. Zoran was a teammate with Robin (Jacobsson) in Trelleborg and now he is craving something new and that way it is, says Österlen FF's head coach Jonas Stridsberg.
Jovanovic has had problems with a heel earlier in the season, how is his form in the current situation? - He is in good shape and looks forward to joining the group.
What role will Jovanovic have in the ÖFF? - On the plane we will use his experience and creativity. There will also be a substantial reinforcement alongside the planes. Zoran is a leader figure who also looks forward to helping our younger players take the next step in development.
Of course, a player of Jovanovic's caliber also attracts other talented players. Do you have more recruiting bombs going on? - Yes, we have more players that we are interested in, including a good player here locally who will join but it is too early to go out with this at present, concludes Jonas Stridsberg.
Zoran Jovanovic has IFK Malmö as the parent club and has made 20 junior national matches and three U21 national matches for Sweden. In Trelleborg's last match in Superettan when the team fell against Halmstads BK, Jovanovic sat on the bench. He does not learn to do that in Österlen FF.
Österlen's beaches are world famous and do not need any further presentations. The fact that they also educate talented beach football players is evidenced by the results in Åhus Beach Fotboll, which is currently underway at Täppetstranden in Åhus.
Several local teams from southeastern Skåne participate in this year's beach football days in Åhus. The best way to date has been for the newly composed and self-coached friend gang FC Stolpskott (the team consisted of 14-year-old boys from Gärsnäs, Tomelilla and Simrishamn and who because of the regulations could not officially be called FC Stolpskott but were forced to a couple of temporary player transfers and instead played during the name IFK Simrishamn where most of them play football everyday, which impressed big in the class for 14-year-old boys. Five wins and the goal difference 11-4 took the team to a superior team victory and quarter-finals in the A-finals where they took the sixth straight victory by defeating Mörrum with 2-1.
The semi-final against Kristianstad became a thrilling event where FC Stolpskott pressed for a major part of the match for a decision and which, during regular time and in the decisive penalty shoot-out (1-1 after full time), was just post-hits from the A-finals. FC Stolpskott's first participation in Åhus Beach Soccer (all winnings during regular match time) ended with well-deserved bronze medals. Victory in the A class did Wä.
- We are happy and have had two very happy cup days. Next year we will probably come back, then we are 15 years and can hopefully be called Stolpskott also in the results lists, says Axel Orrenius, FC Stolpskotts team captain.
In the F14 class, Gärsnäs girls also waged their way to a quarter-finals in the A-finals where, however, there was a loss of defeat against Vinslöv.
Åhus Beach Soccer for children and young people holds until the 5 of July and southeastern Skåne is represented by several teams from Gärsnäs, Brösarp, Tomelilla, Sankt Olof, Öja, Ystad and Simrishamn. If you do not follow the law in place, you will find the entire game schedule and all the results here >>
This is the fifth year that Åhus Beach Soccer is arranged. Over 450 teams are registered for this year's tournament which is a record and close to the set goal that is 480 teams. The biggest increase is the Youth Act. One of many popular race classes during Åhus Beach Soccer is Football For Everyone where people with different types of disabilities play. Here you really go all into the sand and war for his team.
In the spring season's last home match, Österlen FF cleaned up on Saturday by the last Råslätts SK with 4-2-. But there were no easily cleaned points that were salvaged at Skillinge IP.
The first half of the marked game acquisition resulted in a stable 2-0 lead. In the second half, guests were speeded up and were able to reduce to 2-XNUM Abdulahi Hussein and then had a good period in the match. But the minute after the 2-1 reduction, Robin Jacobsson appeared on a corner and could encounter 3-1. However, raw plains did not give up Abdulahi Hussein could reduce once more before Robin Jakobsson set the final score to 4-2 in the 84 minute.

It is not often a golf competition stops pending. But then the fall of Österlens Golfklubb's track Djupadal after three days of games in the PGA Championship hosted by Ingelsta Kalkon. Even the three hole specialties could distinguish the players in the lead and when a thunderbolt pulled in over southeastern Skåne, the competition management decided to share the profit between Christian Bach Christiansen from Denmark and Gudmunder Kristjansen from Iceland.
Shared victory for the first time
Both players finished nine holes under par and when it came time for special play on the 18 hole, Christiansen and Kristjansen showed class. The audience was invited to both fantastic rashes, unparalleled recordings and long birdie pits. During the fourth special hole, the lightning storm broke loose over Vik and the competition broke. The victory was shared, which never happened before during the Swedish Golf Tour. However, it has happened once before during a golf instructor championship where Krister Kinell and Österlens Golfklub's instructor Gunnar Mueller shared the victory. Charlie Lindh finished third in the PGA Championship hosted by Ingelsta Turkey, a blow behind the victory duo.
XNUMBER players passed the cuts
Over 150 players came to the start of the competition, which is part of the Swedish Golf Tour. 61 of these passed the cut and got to play the third round. The prize money for the competition was a total of 425 000. Österlen's contribution to the competition Philip Lindström, Tomelilla GK and William Wistrand, Österlens GK, both missed a good competition but missed the cutt this time.
In Saturday's away match against Näsby IF, IFK Simrishamn took the initiative directly. The team performed an amazingly moving assault football the first ten minutes that were already resulting in the first attack when Jatto Camara finished on the runaway Näsbykeepern. But the goals would come for the Österlen team, which after the clear 6-1 victory against Näsby now has nine points margin down to the second in the division 4 table.
21 with the final kick of the half
Simrishamn was forced early to a break when a Näsbys player went hard to Tibor Cica who lingered and leave room for Oskar Persson. Persson did not need many minutes before he in the 10: one minute shot a high shot that Näby's goalkeeper could not steer clear of. Simrishamn still had a large ball possession but ten minutes later, the home team used a conversion and rolled in the receipt until 1-1 which stood until the half-time rest. Most thought, but not Jatto Camara, who, with the final kick of the half, poked the ball between the legs of Näsby's goalkeeper. Half-time 1-2.
Kim's energy spreads to his teammates
The psychologically important management goal from the first half was followed by another cold shower for Näsby when Oskar Persson already in the minute 48 routinely finished a fine attack along the grass to the left of Näsbys Målis. The remaining part of the match controlled Simrishamn through continued large ball possession where the ball holder usually had several matching options thanks to runaway teammates. One of many Simrishamners with a lot of jumping in the legs this afternoon was Kim Madsen, who with his riveting and sacrificial game style spread energy to his teammates.
You ran so much today so it was hard to see what position you were on.
- Haha, really I'm an outer midfielder but I just run. We'll move a lot and after our 2-1 they start folding down. We have the peace and dare to play our game and show that we can do it too, ”says Kim Madsen, who with his distinctive 4-1 goal removed Kristianstad team's hopes of being able to rise.
You made a cruel goal too, congratulations!
- Yes, it was really nice. It doesn't happen that often, ”concludes Kim Madsen, who then walked towards the locker room at Grönevi IP to take a well-deserved shower.
The last half hour the game went down in pace. Näsby had scalded with a substitute and Simrishamn rolled around the ball without overworking. At the end of the match, Jacob Nilsson and Mehmed Deperlo Trnacevic were also goalkeepers after fine attacks up to the final score of 1-6. On Wednesday night, the new away match for IFK Simrishamn is when Sjöbo IF receives the series leaders.
Attacks are best defense is a tried and tested expression, but last Saturday it was instead defense is the best attack that applied when Österlen FF took the third straight three-pointer. FK Älmeboda / Linneryd had to leave a hazy Skillinge IP with an 0-1 loss after Jacob Blixt's victory goal in the 53 minutes.
The ball-proof guests have so far had a scant payout but took the command initially and pressed back the home team. Österlen's line of defense, driven by André Lidholm, looked stable through the match.
- It was partly our tactic to let them have a lot of ball and make use of our quick adjustments. Älmeboda / Linneryd is a good team that changes a lot of positions and makes good values. But they did have a lot of ball today, says Österlen FF's coach Jonas Stridsberg who gave extra herring pads to André Lidholm, Robin Jacobsson and Jacob Blixt.
Three flash on the plane at the same time
Oscar and Jacob Blixt started the match and when Victor Blixt was replaced at the end of the match, Österlen had a brother's trio on the plan.
- It was the first time I had three flash on the plane at the same time. It's unique. They did all three well, Jonas Stridsberg concluded.
The next task for Österlen is today's away match against Nosaby IF at Nya Vallbjörka's A-plan. Kick off 16.00.
Österlen FF - FK Älmeboda / Linneryd 1 - 0 (0 - 0) Goal: 1-XNOK Jacob Flash (0).
YA Cup Cups between Gärsnäs AIS and IFK Simrishamn were settled during the final stages of the match when two penalties played the lead roles.
The guests started strongest and also received early dividends in the fifth minute when Dennis Lundbladh met a low-pitched corner which he encountered in the crowds in front of goal. The home team worked their way into the match and when Axel Andersson kept his head on a left-hand side, the home crowd in the swanky May evening on well-managed Gärsvalla. 11 stood half.
Penalty in 88 turned the match picture total
In the second half, Gärsnäs closed better in the middle of the track so that Simrishamn's advances, usually signed by Mikael Lindström, were stopped. But it was still a Lindström action that became match-fixing in the 88 minute. Gärsnäs' strong defense game kept going back and forth for Simrishamns advances. The audience around the sports ground just waited for Gärsnäs to use his disability penalty which could have meant 2-1 management and minimal playing time left for a away receipt. But instead, Lindstrom set full speed in a dribble tree which was stopped just outside the penalty area by a home player. Lindström fell into the penalty area and the referee pointed to the penalty point. Jonathan Karlsen stepped forward and pressed the elm meter. When Simrishamn's goalkeeper then saved Gärsnäs's handicap penalty, the home team failed to turn the match. Simrishamn kept the few minutes left and won with 2-1.
IFK Simrishamn will meet the winner between Gröstorp and Liga 06 in the quarter-finals of the YA Cup.
