2012 Summer break

Now that the Rest of Sweden vs the Malmö Giants match has now been played in Göteborg, the Stockholm league’s summer break starts. Unfortunately the Malmö guys won a tight match 9.5.59 to 8.9.57, with Årsta Swans Rob and Jonas featuring among the goal kickers. Reports have it the Giants got up with the last kick of the day win. See match details here.

During this summer period, the players will naturally be taking good care of themselves – eating well, training hard and minimising alcohol consumption. Naturally.

Årsta’s first game after the break is a Friday evening match against Solna at Årstafältet on the 3rd of August, however the week before we have goal umpire duties that we need to fulfil. See the fixture here.

Do some recruiting over the summer and make sure you’re on the Årsta Facebook group to get updates on training times and locations.

With the summer here and plenty of people away in the countryside or off travelling, the Årsta Swans’ training has gone back to basics.

For the last couple of weeks we’ve parked ourselves in the popular Rålambshovsparken for an old fashioned kick-to-kick. Joined by the lads from the Södermalm Blues, we had a great kickabout for a couple of hours.

Along with the good weather, the summer break has now hit the SAFF season, with all teams taking a nearly two-month break in the middle of the season. Hopefully everyone uses this time to get to the beach, fire up the BBQ and enjoy the sun!

While the season may be on hold, training is still on each week, and the banter certainly doesn’t have to stop. Check out the 2011 season goal kickers list – who’ll be Årsta’s champion sharp shooter by the end of the season?
