Årsta Swans awards night 2017

It is November.
It is wet and just a few degrees outside.
The playing season is long gone and to add to the dread, we ended up last of the four teams in Stockholm.
What do you do to fight the gloom?
You have a bunch of laughs and drinks with good friends, or in other words – the annual Årsta Swans awards night!

We started with a very late AGM. Normaly they are held in the beginning of the season but due to various reasons that did not happen.
This meeting was more of a sum up of the past season and a bit of a prep for the coming one.
Information worth mentioning is that Wilhelm Fischerström stepped down as president after 2 years and handed the precidency over to Chris Murr.
The role as team treasurer, that has been vacant since Julian Huitfeldt moved to Australia, was filled by our newcomer Mark van Meeteren. 

After the meeting our coach Ché Ramiréz took to the stand and started to hand out the awards for 2017.

We winner were as follows:
Goal kicker of the year: Glenn McLeod (Actually Glenn was the lead goalkicker in the whole competition)
Most improved player: Brian Weltz
Coaches award: Bill Chugg
The Hammer award: Wilhelm Fischerström
Club champion: Robert Young

After the award ceremony the group relocated to the Boomerang bar for even more drinks.

Here is a clip from the awards ceremony

The 2017 season is here!

It is that awesome time of the year again.

The snow is long gone (hopefully), the temperature is climbing, the oval is dry enough for games.

That means it is time to get things started – and that we will!!
The season premiere is here.

On Saturday, May 6th, the first double header will be played at Skarpnäcks sportfält.
The first game is us facing the Solna Axemen. Everyone is eager to get back on the field and wants to start with a win so it will be an interesting game.
The second game of the day will be a repeat of last years grand final; Norrtälje Dockers vs. Södermalm Blues. A guaranteed nail biter.

The first game will start at 12:00 and the second game will be started at about 13:30

This year we will have a grandstand to increase your viewing experience. There will be a naming ceremony for it – do not miss it =)

As usual there will be a BBQ with snags from Taylor & Jones, burgers, soda, beer and rosé

See you all on Saturday

Go Årsta!
