1. Tuesday Twilight Match at the J!

    By Rappa

    Söder V Norrtälje

    Söder got to the ‘J’ early and went through a solid warm up session in preparation for the big game.

    There was plenty entertainment early on, Norrtälje were alert in assuring Söder they were there to play, with plenty of body work and close checking match ups around the ground. Söder was on the back foot early with coach Bull picked up by a limo outside the gate of the ‘J’ and whisked off for a critical conference, and if things couldn’t of got worse as living legend of the game ‘Larry’ was sub out early in the match with what seemed a serious injury concern to the Söder medical staff.

    The match rolled on and Söder dug deep into their reserves.  With Iron guts all tied up on the BBQ duty, with full control of social and entertainment off field rolls. It was time for Söder to take the red vest off the famed ‘Bluey Svensson’.

    Bluey as renowned for made an immediate impact upon his teammates, showing leadership he lifted the talk around the field. He was at the bottom of every pack, firing out bullet like handballs to the running players of söder who repelled all attacks into the forward 50-metre area by the Dockers. The characteristic fitness of Bluey was evident, as he was around the ground third man up in the ruck placing the ball in the laps of Söder players who in turn shared the ball around and started to run the legs off the Docker boys. Bluey was everywhere providing bumps, blocks, and shepherds as the boys, repelled, cleared, attacked and scored at the Söder end.

     

    After an inspirational half time address from bluey the Söder boys were so well united, not much looked like stoping them. Larry looked on from the box with a smile, as Bluey led the way and continued on like a diesel engine. Providing clean clearances, rocket passes, timely set ups and hard tackles, which was the ingredient to shake off any resurgence from the Dockers.  The Söder boys confidently tracked with endure pressure, which provided high possession football, multiple goal scorers and many other fine contributions to the team win. Norrtälje kept fighting on to the end, but with the magic of Bluey it was to be Söders night.

  2. Södermalm vs Årsta on Friday

    By Lars

    Söder takes on their southern rivals Årsta in the next round of the SAFF Premiership. The Swans showed top form in Sweden Cup recently where they not only beat Söder but also went all the way to the Grand Final. Looks like the Blues are in for a thriller.

    First game (Årsta vs Söder) kicks off at 18.30 at the J (Skarpnäck)
    Second game (Solna vs Norrtälje) starts at 20.00

    BBQ and drinks afterwards

  3. Söder make it 4 in a row (by Tanka)

    By Lars

    After a very good start to the season, the lads from Söder knew there was only one possible outcome, and that was proven from the start. Söder dominated possession in the first quarter and probably should have been further ahead had they made the most of their chances. They went into quarter time only 16 points ahead.

    The second quarter was a bit different, kicking with the wind, Söder piled on 5 goals to 1 to extend their lead to 37 Points.
    During the 3rd quarter, Bromma made the use of the wind to narrow the gap to just 26 points at the final break. However Söder were simply to good in the end running out 37 point Winners in the end, 15.10.100 to 9.9.63.

    Major goal kickers for Söder were Mick Larsson with 5 and Johan Dahlberg with 4. A good all-round team effort though in the end with every player making a contribution.

    Next week sees Söder head to Jönköping to hopefully be yet again crowned champions of Sweden as they lock horns with teams from all over the country.

  4. Grand Final rematch (by Andrew)

    By Kaj

    A rematch of the 2013 Grand Final saw the Söder Blues up against their old archrival the Solna Axeman on a sunny day at the JCG.

    The game started off very evenly with both teams making the most of their opportunities up forward to go into the quarter time break all tied up with 5.1.31 a piece. Tanka’s brilliant 4 goal first quarter including a Stevie Johnson dribble from the boundary line kept Söder in the game early, along with Martin’s powerful leads from full forward.

    In the second quarter Max, Rappa, Dylan and Bull started to get plenty of the footy through the midfield and Söder started to move the ball with precision and looked like they were getting away from Solna. Credit to the Solna boys who fought back late in the term with some of their premiership winning form from last season.

    As the third quarter got under way, Marathon Larry was continuing to run laps around his opponents. The third quarter was neck and neck with both teams continuing to run hard but neither team was able to trouble the scoreboard.

    Söder dominated the final quarter but again were unable to put the score on the board which kept Solna in the game. Another great performance by Max Larsson who with his second goal of the day, kicked his 100th career goal for the mighty Blues.

    When the final siren sounded, Söder had recorded their third win for the season to remain undefeated on top of the ladder in season 2014.

  6. Club legend breaks 100 games limit in season premiere

    By Ivan

    The club hereby recognize the acheivements by Lars ‘Lethal’ Hagberg, who was honored with a medal by the SAFF board after celebrating his 100 game for the blues. The seasoned veteran defender did so by kicking a rarely seen goal in the convincing victory against the Bromma Vikings.

    Presented with the 100 games medal, Lethal was met with silent awe from players in rookie-dense Norrtälje and Årsta, almost refusing to believe what they just heared, while the players of Bromma and Solna, being considerably more experienced, still spoke of his consistency over the years with the outmost respect.

    For players of Södermalm, and for the club as a whole, Lars is indeed appreciated as a person, a reliable team mate, a source of inspiration, and most valued for his contribution to the club on and off the field. Here’s to another 100 games Larry!

  8. Södermalm hit the ground runnning (by Kaj)

    By Lars

    The first match of the season 2014 was an anticipated one! Södermalm faced the 2012 premiers Bromma Vikings on a cloudy and cold Saturday. After a long pre-season the Söder boys were fired up and ready to go at first bounce.

    The game started off with both midfields fighting hard to get the upper hand. Söder was kicking with the wind in the first quarter and soon put some pressure on the Bromma defense. The nerve settler for Söder came about 5 minutes into the game when Kaj dribbled in the first goal of the match. The strongish wind on the JCG helped Söder to an easy 5 goals to 0 lead by quarter time. Continue reading →
