Tomorrow we travel to Gothenburg to take on my old team. Only a few players remain since I left after the 2010 season, but some faithful players are still to be found. If you come and watch the game you should cheer extra for Marlene Sjöberg who has played in the club for (I am guessing) 16 seasons (or 16 seasons in the league, I am not sure)! Marre is my friend so I think she will laugh if I write that I though I was old with my 14 seasons in the league…
Anyhow. Now it’s a new team and we find a lot of former BK Jitex players there amongst other new players. Probably since the coach is also new. Guess where he came from? Yes, BK Jitex.
I have huge respect for the speedy forward Manon Melis, tall Annica Sjölund and smart player Sara Lindén. From what I understand the new dutch player Leike Martens is worth watching and for the ones interested in the Swedish players you find Anna Ahlstrand (also very faithful and useful player), Cathrine Johansson (with roots in Brasil) and young goalkeeper Louise Högrell. There are probably more, but those I haven’t gotten to know yet.
Still, we are going to face a very good team and I look forward to the challenge. They won against Vittsjö with 0-5 in the first round, Melis scoring three. We on the other hand won against Tyresö with 2-0 and is walking into this game with confidence. The game will probably be a thriller.
If you want to see it, please place yourself in one of the seats (or stand if you prefer that) at Valhalla IP tomorrow at 19.00. You will find me in one of the goals.
See you there!
