“Cheer, cheer black, orange and white…”

Ok folks!

So it is that time of the year again.
Pre-season training has been going on for some time.
The grounds are drying up from the winter and we can have the training outdoors.
I finally get a burst of inspiration and sit down and add something to this page.

The 2018 season of Stockholm aussie rules football is here!!

So what is new, you might ask?
A whole lot, i´d say

Internally we have had some rotation among the roles in the team. The highlight would be Chris Murr stepping up as president of the team.
I bet he, together with coach Ché Ramiréz, will whip us into shape and turn Årsta Swans into the well oiled monster machine it can be.
We have a sponsor – Kaked Bygg who has provided us with new gear. In doing that we chose to tweak our color scheme a bit go for black and orange as our main colors.
We have had some new faces coming into the team. During pre-season a few of them has been proving themselves as quite promising – we are looking forward to see what they can bring to the table.

The first game of the season will be held at the Norrtälje Oval on april 28th at noon. It will be Årsta Swans v. Norrtälje dockers.
So please come and watch some footy, have a burger and drinks at the BBQ and cheer us on. Let 2018 be Årsta Swans year!!

You can download the 2018 fixture here. Print it out and slap it onto your fridgedoor 🙂

See you at the games!

One for all – all for Årsta!

The SAFF 2016 season is over – Norrtälje Dockers won the flag

A group of 9 Årsta Swans players went up to Norrtälje last weekend to battle it out in the prelim-finals against the Dockers. After a tight game, where the score was only a few points difference up until Q3, the Dockers stood as victors. It was an exciting game but Årstas steam ran out during the last quarter.

On Sept 24 the grand final was played on the JCG in Skarpnäck. Both the Norrtälje Dockers and the Södermalm Blues were pumped and ready for a good battle.

We say a heartfelt congratulations to the Norrtälje Dockers who won their first flag!!

A new season is here, sooner than you think

The streets are paved with ice, the cold wind makes you hide indoors and the sun is hardly able to stay above the horizon passed 4 PM.
Nothing in that sentence makes you think of footy season, i agree.
But that does not mean that nothing is happening, it is quite the opposite.

Training has started a few weeks back, together with the Solna Axemen.
We have also secured access to a facility for our own Swans training.
The Swans AGM meeting is in a couple of days and – before you know it we will be standing on the oval in Skarpnäck waiting for “ball up”.
