Stripes Target Top Spot in 2011

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

The 2011 football season is upon us, and together with some very welcome new faces, the old guard at Långholmen FC are determined as ever to bounce back from the disappointment of last year’s relegation.

Stripes News talk to the LFC management about their ambitions for the season ahead:

Rodrigo Pinto – 1st Team Manager

“The goal for the first team is to win the series. No Question. I think that we have a good group of players and my challenge is to get this good group of players to practice together, trust me, understand my vision and focus on the team goal. Success comes from our collective strength and unity. I have a plan of how I want the team to play, and the more we play together the better we will get at putting this plan into action.”

I’m from Brazil, and as you know that football is a religion there. I’ll bring a lot of that passion into the coaching at Långholmen FC, but we also need to play smart. Use a system and a style of play that fits my players, minimize the mistakes and work on every detail. If we get this right, and get a good start… we can win the series.”

Marc Evans – 1st Team Coach

“As you know I’m retiring from serious football as a player, so I’m relishing the opportunity to Manage the R1 and coach the 1st team this season. We have a good group of lads, done a solid pre season and are very excited about the first game of the season. Obviously, we’ve learnt a lot from last year’s experience. We want to learn from that and bounce back as quickly as possible.”

“Yeah – I think you could say that we’ve got a few things to prove to a few people out there. We’ve been targeting this first game of the season for a few weeks now. We are at full strength, and you can expect fully committed performance – as always. We are up for the challenge this year, no doubt. We want to win every game… and that starts on Sunday.

Andrew O’Sullivan – 1st Team Captain

“Dropping down a level is always a test of character, but there is a great spirit in the camp. That is part of what makes Långholmen such a special club. We’ve lost a couple of players but that’s football, and the new guys are expected to step up. Playing in Division 3 last year was a very valuable experience. We’ve talked about it as players, and we know what it takes to win this league.”

We want to be back in Div 3 next year, but appreciate that it is a long season ahead of us with many battles along the way. We can only take it one game at a time. We’ve been running for 3 months now to get in shape, and this first game can’t come soon enough for us. We are raring to go… Expect fireworks on Sunday… this is going to be a fantastic season.”

The Division 4 campaign kicks off for the Stripes on Sunday afternoon

1700 KO @ Essinge IP.

Hope to see you there.

LFC connects 450 International Party People

“The Party of the Year… and we are only in April”. Or at least that is what some people are saying.

The International Extravaganza at Clustret on Saturday night was powered by Långholmen FC, and brought together over 450 people from all over Stockholm to soak up the electric eclectic atmosphere of this cities cosmopolitan culture. Revellers danced into the early hours to the sounds of top class DJs Just Jules, Pete Wiese, Anders Höglander and Scot James. Legends the lot of them.

It was smiles all round as folks made a bunch of new connections, and got to see some old pals throwing some extraordinary shapes after one too many glasses of bucks fizz. The only negative being Billy Harkness’ lost jumper.

Were you there? Did you have a good time? Did you PLAY away from home?

LFC hope you enjoyed yourselves… and look forward to future events.

Bon Soir

Långholmen FC and who we are………..

Tuesday, April 7th, 2009

Långholmen FC or The Stripes as we are affectionately known are an English speaking international football club based in Stockholm. The club was founded in 2002 by some English speaking exiles who used to gather and kick a ball around on the gravel pitch at Långholmen. A football club was formed and has steadily grown from those early days of Swedish korpen football. The club has progressed through the lower leagues to their current division 4 status and now boasts seven teams, both male and female competing at various levels. The club is not only medium to watch a bit of football, especially for those who do not have a team to support in Sweden, but it is also a great social happening off the pitch. This season our first team play in Division 4 m in Stockholm and play our home games at Stora Essinge IP. We attract a growing band of supporters which includes families, friends and neutrals alike. The club is a firm believer in fair play and have received plaudits in recent seasons for our good spirit on and off the pitch. Check out our fabulous website for details
