A very tagged FC Cimrishamn made two really strong periods against Lundalaget Teknologkårens IF on Saturday. This was enough to take the season's first victory with 8-7 at home in Jonebergshallen in Simrishamn.
After the series premiere last weekend, we were many who wondered how the team should get into a game of attack that can loosen up the opposition defense, who will help the last season's shooting winner Andreas Björborn with goal shooter and how the defense game will become more aggressive without it entailing expulsion minutes?
The answers came immediately in Saturday's home premiere in the Joneberg Hall and it was a hearty excuse for coach Fredrik Hennigor who founded the victory.
- After the away premiere, the players of the week have got a real leveling off, says Fredrik Hennigor.
The match against Teknologkårens IF started at a very high pace where FC Cimrishamn pushed back the guests with a loud and aggressive press play. The home team was drummed by the dedicated and strong home finish but it took 14.23 in the first period before the home team got a fair dividend. Andreas Larsson took the ball centrally and saw the door in the away team's goal cage. The FCC then managed a numerical disadvantage before Dennis Hedqvist showed which heavy shot he has from his back position. Hedqvist's canon from half-plan to 2-0 was also the result after period one.
In the beginning of the second period, the FCC increased to 3-0 by clapping-clapping games signed by Andreas Björborn (forwards) and Veton Gashi (scorer). The technology repository replicated immediately by making careful use of a counter-attack. 4-1 came in numerically superior, where Andreas Björborn served Teddy Nander in front of the target. The guests replicated again until 4-2 before Andreas Larsson pressed 5-2 after a nice ball shot behind and over the target. Before the second period, Andreas Björborn presented his specialty - to pellet the ball kitchen path behind the goalkeeper. 6-2 cord for Cimrishamn after two impressive periods.
Before the third period, the question was whether the FCC would be able to keep up the level or if you would be comfortable in the belief that the match was already won. It was both. The guests stepped up, made a strong pick-up and were extremely close to catching up targeting. The FCC, however, held off to an 8-7 outbreak. If the Simrishamn team can hold the same high level in the course of a whole match in the future, it can carry really long in the two initial periods.
FC Cimrishamn are still undefeated after Thursday night's 6-3 victory over Skurup's IBK H4. However, it started swaying in Jonebergshallen before the Simrish harbors stepped on in period two.
The opening of the match was characterized by rolling and snappy play with many individual breakthrough attempts and it was felt 50 / 50 for which of the teams would make the first goal. In the eighth minute, Skurup made 0-1 after a chilly backhand lift. Cimrishamn created a lot of shooting positions, but the base was up to the first break.
In the second period, the home team stepped up - significantly better mobility and sharpness in the passing game and 4.28 into the middle period drew Björn Kronkvist on a shot against Skurups' obscure goalkeeper. The ball slims in until 1-1. Five minutes later, Cimrishamn utilized a power play when Andreas Björborn, in a tricky position behind goal, served Albin Hammargren who controlled 2-1. Two minutes later, it was the guests' turn to paint in the power play. Cimrishamn took over the match but still 2-2 on the scoreboard. Dennis Hedqvist wanted to change that when, after 13 minutes, he made a powerful back-break and advanced towards goal and punctured 3-2 behind a scoreless away goalkeeper. With only two seconds! remaining of the period Andreas Björborn served a new pass behind Skurup's goal cage. This time it was Dennis Hedqvist who managed the pass and scored his second straight goal up to 4-2 ahead of the end period. A so-called psychological goal.
When home team Anton Blohmé barely four minutes into the third period made the 5-2 the victory felt clear. Admittedly, Skurup created several reduction situations, but when it was needed at best, Cimrishamn's goalkeeper Philip Olsson stood in the way, which made the away team's reduction hunt thinner one by one. 6-2 did Anton Areskoug when there were six minutes remaining and the rest of the match became a flamboyant story.
FC Cimrishamn-Skurups IBK H4 6-3 (0-1, 3-1, 3-1). Goalkeepers FCC: Dennis Hedqvist 2, Anton Blohmé, Björn Kronkvist, Albin Hammargren and Anton Areskoug.
FC Cimrishamn now leads division 4 south of Skåne with a match more played compared to the other two top teams Hofteruds IBF and IBK Genarp. Cimrishamn will receive Genarp in the next round at home in Jonebergshallen on November 23.
On Saturday, 23 November, the World Cup qualifier in footgolf - Tomelilla Open Fifg100. The competition is played like a traditional golf competition: 36 holes, and with as few kicks on the football as possible to get it in holes.
A little over a week before the start on the Tomelilla golf course, we checked the situation with organizer duo Tobias Beijer and Joacim Lindholm who have both played SM for the past two years.
How come you are hosting a World Cup qualifier here in Österlen? - We have got my eyes on the sport a lot and would like to bring it forward in Sweden so we thought it would have been fun to host a competition at home. Having said that, we started a page on Facebook and invited everyone we know. We checked the interest in organizing a competition and there was interest. Then we were contacted by Tommy Svensson and Erik Lundin (two of Sweden's foremost and most experienced football golfers) who asked if we were interested in arranging a World Cup qualifier for next year's World Cup in Japan, says Joacim Lindholm.
The competition in Tomelilla is one of six qualifying competitions for the World Cup. The qualification goes like a traditional golf game, 18 holes in the morning and 18 in the afternoon, where the leader ball goes out last. Minimum number of kicks wins. The top three in the men's and women's class are awarded with the World Cup qualification points.
How many participants are in the competition at Tomelilla Golf Club?
- At the time of writing there are about 25 registered, but we expect between 35 and 40 starting. There are many old football players competing, but far from everyone, it is not always an advantage to have a football background, you have to play with your head too, says Tobias Beijer.
Are you going to participate yourself? - Yes, both Tobias and I are in the starting list, continues Joacim Lindholm.
Is there any advance favorite?
- We will get several really good players here, but the advance favorite is clear: the reigning Swedish champion and ex-Swedish player Nahir Oyal. He is extremely skilled and has a cruel attitude. Also Tommy Svensson, Erik Lundin, Niklas Karlsson and Tobias Eriksson learn to be cheated at the top for important qualifying points, concludes Joacim Lindholm.
The Tomelilla World Cup qualifier is open to everyone and you can register until the 22 November. Maybe there is a future World Cup player here at Österlen? If not, it will be an exciting competition to follow on site at the Tomelilla golf course.
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.
With this weekend's qualifying matches in football, the season's competition games ended. Apart from Spjutstorps IF as the next weekend has the chance to qualify for division 4. Regardless of the result of Spjutstorp's evening drama, we can already say that it was a good year for the team from the southeast - Österlen is on the move and advances the positions in the series system.
We start at the top of the series system where Hammenhögs IF's ladies had long been in first place but ended in a stable third place in division 1 south Götaland. Österlen FF finished fifth in the men's division 2 Östra Götaland with a new points record for the team in second place.
In the third, Tomelilla IF already plays, which next year will be joined by IFK Simrishamn. Simrishamn moves up after going through its division 4 series unbeaten - check out the impressive final table below. 19 wins, three draws and not a single loss!
Gärsnäs AIS puts a very strong season behind it. The five-man series victory means Division 4 games next season.
Gröstorps IF's season also impresses. After qualifying, the team takes the step up to division 5. The same misery up to five makes Öja FF.
The six will be a real wasp nest next season where the following teams settle on which is southeast Skåne's best division 6 team: Kiviks AIF, Rörums SK, Borrby IF, Svenstorps IF, Baskemölla IF and Lövestads IF.
In division 7 we find from Österlen Glemmingebro IF, Onslunda IF, Smedstorps IF and Sövestads IF. Which of these teams is investing in moving up the series system next year?
Now the beginning is another part of what makes football interesting - the silly season. A fox game between clubs, leaders and players - who recruits who?
Senior football in south-eastern Skåne is clearly on the rise and the higher up the series system the best teams reach, the more elite players are attracted to these clubs, which in turn means that player quality flows down the food chain to the teams in the divisions below. Quality is increased at all levels, Österlen is on the way!
Playing youth football until you become a senior is for several reasons preferable to already playing senior football as an 15 or 16 year. When that opportunity is not offered, it is important to find other solutions for the youth who want to continue playing football. This has been done by IFK Simrishamn together with Baskemölla IF.
IFK Simrishamn's 16 team, which consists of players born 03 and 04, will be offered A-team football for Baskemölla IF in the 6 division next season. In addition to Simrishamn's youth players, some players from IFK also join Simrishamn's current a-squad, which will form a senior backbone along with Baskemölla's current players. Coach for the "Simrisbaske team" will be Johan Hörberger, who already belongs to IFK Simrishamn's organization.
- The goal is for Baskemölla to become a top team in the six, says coach Johan Hörberger.
The idea is that the players who make progress in Baskemölla IF should be able to move to IFK Simrishamn's squad to feel the division 3 football there. Conversely, players who are not currently taking part in IFK Simrishamn's A squad should be able to join Baskemölla's A team. A kind of friendly farmer's team arrangement without written agreement.
- No, we do not enter into any agreements, more like a gentleman's agreement that both Baskemölla and we win, says IFK Simrishamn chairman Morgan Ristmägi.
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.
