NRK have choosed Vaulen's first team as 2002's Text-Tv Team. Vaulen was
polled out of the hat today, this according to NRK Text-TV. With weekly
bulletins about the league games will Vaulen now finally be set on the
map! It's believed that NRK will kick start it all by showing the highlights
from the Cup game against Sandnes in Sportsrevyen 28. April.
more on NRK's web site!
Vaulen's game against Sola on Thursday has been moved to Sola. It was first
planned that the game should had been played at the astro pitch on Hinna,
but after great weather lately has Sola offered to use their grass turf.
That was of course an offer Vaulen couldn't reject. The game will therefor
be played on Thursday 4. April at 18.30.
The deal with
Sola also includes another game 11. April, this game will also be played
away - as planned.
Now have Sola
also requested Vaulen if they want to join their tournament from 13.-14.
April that also includes Vedavåg and Viking 2. This is an offer Vaulen
is likely to accept, something that mean good match training before the
interesting cup tie against Sandnes in week 17.
Tore Haugvaldstad was Sola manager from 1996 to 1999. He had a good record
for them as he brought them up from the 3. division in his first year in
charge. After two years in mid table position Sola should however relegate
in 1999. Amongst the players that dominated for Sola at that time was Pedro
Salgado that now of course play for Vaulen.
Vaulen's datumn for the cup game against Sandnes has now been arranged.
The game will be played Wednesday 24. April at 18.30 on Hinna stadion.
The game is the first qualify round for the Norwegian Cup. Kåre Lindboe
in the Norwegian FA inform that referee for the game will be Buøy's
Morten L. Stople. Linesmen will be Sigmund Kro from Ulf Sandnes and Jan
Øyvind Ulseth from Hundvåg. Ulseth that also will be referee
in Vaulen's first home game this season when Beachboys face Vedavåg
from Vaulen as Sola came from behind
(0) 2 - 2 (1) Vaulen This was Vaulen's
first touch with grass this season something that resulted in many strange
passes and choices. The bumpy pitch must take much responsibility for that.
But there was nothing to say on the effort and the quality will probably
be better already next week when Vaulen also meet Sola.
HALF From the start
Vaulen started a bit defensive, but they should get the first goal. A first
class breakthrough pass from Jani sent Salgado trough. Salgado was brought
down inside the box and Idsø's 11.minutes penalty was place
at the left side of the goalie. The first half ended with this only goal.
SECOND HALF At the start
of the second half Vaulen had pushed their team a bit forward. After 54.
minutes Landsnes was played trough on the right winger, alone with
the goalie he netted in a safe way. After a good period in the start of
the half was the players becoming a bit tired. With that Sola returned
into the game, they reduced on a 72. minutes corner before they got the
equalizer just before the end. In total it was an okay result.
It was positive
that the defensive play was better than in a while. Both Gysland and not
at least Salvesen played great in the center of the defense. Also Kleiberg
must get a lot of credit in his first game from start. From his deep midfield
position he delivered many smart passes.

Vaulen's game against Sola on Thursday has been called off. A Sola spokesman
inform that the game had to be canceled due to injury problems, and the
fact that Sola will have a big tournament in the weekend. Sola are interested
in getting a new game arranged when available. A game before the autumn
season kick off will perhaps be of topical interest. Sola is also willing
to offer Vaulen time to train at their grass pitches before the season
kick off. If no new friendlies gets arranged the coming days will Vaulen's
next game be away to Madla 20. April. That will be the last preseason game
before the cup game against Sola on 24. April.
goes ahead - at Hinna
Forget all you have heard! There will be a friendly against Sola after
all. The game will be played today, Thursday, now at Hinnabanen instead.
Kick off is 18.30. Referee will be Vaulen's very own Svein Ravn Carlsen.
He will be assisted with linesmen Leidulv Nygaard and Bjørn Harald
consider a future manager career
Isak Arne Refvik admits that he now look for bigger tasks. The last three
years have the former Vaulen player been assistant at Viking's youth team.
"I would had loved to manage one or another first team," he admitted to
Isak had a
short career in Scotland together with Svein Mathisen for Hibernian. Hibs
was actually pioneers in Scotland as they was the first club that usd sponsors'
names on shirts and the first club with undersoil heating. When Isak and
'Matta' joined Easter Road in 1978 they actually were the first Norwegians
in Scottish football! Refvik in particular was a big hit with the
fans, but the game wasn't set up for foreign recruitment in those days,
and the pair eventually had to give up waiting for work permits and go
home. During their time at Easter Road they were actually playing as amateurs!
But first of all was Refvik a Viking
player. After his career he have been in Vaulen for several years and also
his children play in the club.
The former winger that got 46 goals
for Viking have ambitions as manager and will perhaps be the one that follow
Haugvaldstad as Vaulen boss?
"I don't think I will take a C or
D course, but I could had enjoyed to manage a first team at a higher level,"
said Isak that currently also work at Toyota Bilhuset.
Now he hope
to see some youngsters come through for Viking.

has been more and more difficult," said Isak.

was Anders Idsø missing with a injured ankle, after he had stepped
over in training. He is however likely to be fit again next week when Vaulen
manager duo had desided to test out Erik Gysland at the left full back
for this game, something that worked out nicely. Meanwhile was Bjarne Hov
back in the goal.
Sola had injury
problems and started with many reserve players and youngsters. It's not
likely that any of their players will get to play in Sola's first league
It was a game
without much tempo. For Vaulen Landsnes impressed most at his left winger.

players after 37 trainings this winter
In the first 15 weeks this season, from 7. January to 18. April, have Vaulen
been through 37 training sessions. Vaulen have normally three training's
a week, and the most there have been on one training is 17 players, least
is 9 players. In totally there have been 33 different players on training,
including 4 juniors. Ole Bjørn Bredesen have been on most training's
having only missed one work out! After him have Jarle Eike, Bjarne Hov
and Anders Idsø missed two of the maximum 37 training's.
(1) 1 - 2 (1) Vaulen On Saturday
afternoon Vaulen played away to the newly promoted 4.th division side Madla
IL. Last season Madla won the 5.th division. With 'Bluejackets' having
quite good preseason this was surely no walkover for Vaulen Beachboys!
FIRST HALF Vaulen started
well and had five good goal opportunities before Madla scored on their
first after 28. minutes. A lob from 20 meters that went over the Vaulen
goalie, Bjarne Hov. How undeserved!
45. minutes should Vaulen however get their important goal before half
time. A fumble by the Madla goalie gave rebound expert Eirik Ekholdt
a chance to shuffle in 1-1.
half was not a beauty as it was dominated by a too high tempo for the players
to handle in addition to many long balls.
SECOND HALF Vaulen seemed
to have got a vitamin injection at half time, with an equal score line.
They managed to get down their shoulders and establish some calm play with
the ball going faster than Madla could handle. Madla therefor had very
few chances in this half. The only thing that was missing for Vaulen was
a better precision in the vital final pass.
desider should therefor not come before in the 88. minute. Stein-Ivar Andersen
worked himself down to the by-line and manage to cross a ball out in the
area. Whom other than Jarle Eike stood ready there with his left
foot? On a volley he thundered the ball in! Surely a great goal by the
skipper that this season seems to find the way to net more easily than

there will be a free numbers of substitutions allowed in the league. With
some players struggling to keep it up through 90. minutes it seems like
this is something Tore Haugvaldstad will use to keep up the go through
the whole game. As the match details try to explain both Andersen and Hinna
had two spells on Madla's pitch today.
Christian Lie have been choosed as Vaulen's match report writer in Rogalands
Avis. "Cissa" will travel around with Beachboys' first team this season
and send reports to RA after the games. This mean that you in the morning
paper can read all the details on Vaulen's last game. Young Lie, that is
a technical wonder at the Reserve team, will also send the reports to the
Vaulen Beachboys website. With also Stavanger Aftenblad writing from Vaulen's
games you are therefor now guaranteed the maximum coverage of Vaulen's
second season at Norway's fourth highest league level.
team kick off next week
Vaulen's C-team will kick off their 2002 season next Tuesday at home to
Muskel at Vaulenbanen at 19.00, C-team boss Frode Lima inform this to Vaulen
Beachboys. Vaulen's third team have only lost five league games the last
three seasons. Last season they scored unbelievable 106 goals in 10 games!
cup - Cuckoo's became too strong
(0) 2 - 4 (2) Sandnes It was a warm,
sunny, clear day down at Hinnabanen for the first qualify round for the
Norwegian cup. About 50 Vaulen fans settled themselves in the dark shadow
area of Gausel's so very much unexplored landscape. We surely all hoped
that the picnic weather should inspire the Beachboys for their first cup
game in the history.
had chosen to stick with the 4-3-3 formation, with Idsø returning
from injury Salgado was moved up front. The white shirted SFK players had
a more traditionally 4-4-2 formation.
FIRST HALF Sandnes started
best and seemed to be looking for an early goal, and it didn't took long
before a Sandnes player found the top of the net.
game had lasted on for three minutes when a cuckoo from the away team dribbled
himself past some Vaulen players at the left side and over the by-line
before he sent in a ball for a Sandnes player to fire it home. Luckily
referee Ronald Urban (yes father of Sondre, can we get a replay now?) finally
saw that the ball had been out and blew in his whistle.
almighty Vaulen? They had some minor chances, but it was Sandnes' counter
attacks that always seemed most dangerous. With some Sandnes players lacking
height, the home team managed to create some with Hinna that impressed
by winning much on the head. With two other strikers there should had been
possibilities to snap up some flick-ons, but often Salgado and Landsnes
was being too wide.
real chance came after a corner. The ball was finally headed down towards
the goal, unfortunately the header lacked pace so a Vaulen player deside
to take the ball down and shoot on a turn around twisting move, but then
Sandnes got time to block it at 5 meters. Vaulen's other big chance came
after a high Ahlstrand Pedersen pass from the left side of the box at the
height with the 16 meters line. A Vaulen player, believed to be Pedro Salgado,
heads the ball just wide.

After 30. minutes
the photograph from Rogalands Avis had arrived, that seemed to inspire
Sandnes the most as a striker of them is played through. Luckily the shot
hit the post and out in play again, before a Vaulen defender manage to
get in a clearance. Vaulen's players seemed to have been tired of Sandnes
shock start and answered with rolling the ball in the defense. For Sandnes
to press up their team, Vaulen failed to take advantage of this in attack
and lost the ball to often.
aggression and concentration it was therefor not undeserved that Sandnes
took the lead after 40. minutes, after a mistake in the defense that send
through a Sandnes player. Vaulen's goalie, Tom Arne Bø Pedersen,
managed to press him out to the left side of the goal. Tommen took a chance
and dived into the strikers feet's and manage to fist the ball away with
his right hand. He though failed to get the ball out of play. Therefor
it was only for the running hurricane to snap the ball up at the by-line,
on his cross he found midfielder Hallgeir Haave on a run that fired
home 0-1 from 13 meters. Only few minutes later it should be 0-2. A cross
come in and the ball bounce like a pinball between the players of both
teams before Eivind Ellingsen get the last touch only for the goalie
to see the slip out of his hands and into the net. So 0-2 at half time,
according to the clichés a dangerous lead we would soon get the
SECOND HALF One half-time
substitution was made as Stein Ivar Andersen came in for Kjetil Aasland.
Haugvaldstad converted to a radical 4-4-2. Jan Tore Kleiberg dropped back
from midfield to replace 32 year old Aasland, while Andersen took the right
winger. Landsnes dropped back into a more defensive left winger role.
started well as Vaulen managed to build up a pressure. After few minutes
they got a free kick 20 meters away from the goal. Anders Idsø
stepped up and curled in a wonderful "Beckham" free kick in the right top
play should follow, it started from defense with a lovely ball from Kleiberg.
He found Landsnes at the left winger that pass it on to Pedro Salgado that
get the ball just outside the center of the box. He advance some meters
before he try to curl it in with the outside of his foot, but the continental
stunt ball goes just wide. It was a very good chance, and the glow was
now back with the players finding each others better.
an hour Haugvaldstad's disciples should get a cold shower as Sandnes' very
good striker, Jørn Hagen, blast home a cannonball in the
right top corner. It was the best goal of the game and 1-3 down for the
suburban Stavanger club. Only five minutes later or so Sandnes puncture
all cup dreams for this season, with another goal. This time a low shot
from outside of the box from Vidar Skår. It went past the
right side of Beachboys' kitten in goal.
minutes Haugvaldstad makes a tactical change as a tired Inge Martin Hinna
goes of for Eirik Ekholdt. Only minutes afterwards Landsnes try a direct
shot, but he overhits the ball and it go across to the opposite side. For
Andersen to head it in front of the goal where full beard wearing Eirik
"DJ" Ekholdt heads it in answering the manager. A humorous Haugvaldstad
afterwards gave credit to Landsnes for not using two touches in the situation...
Vaulen now saw a little hope again and with under ten minutes to go he
decide to change it to a 3-4-3 formation. With Jan Tore brought up as striker
from his defender role. This shouldn't lead into much more than some entertaining
and hazardous dribbles in the defense by Salvesen. Salvi that seemed to
be very motivated for this game against his former club. Two minutes before
the end Pedro Salgado was subbed off with a cramp in a leg, in came Ole
Bjørn Bredesen. After three minutes of added time the referee blew
the final whistle with Sandnes advancing to next round, now can we at least
concentrate on the league...
It was not
the party Vaulen had hoped for, but if Vaulen had managed to take one of
their early chances it could had ben a different game. The two goals for
Sandnes just before the break was psyhical important for them.
predict midtable position for Vaulen
Stavanger Aftenblad today write about Vaulen's third division group. They
have strongest believe in Vedavåg, while they think Vaulen will end
as number six. Despite having probably on of the lowest budgets around
with only 180.000 kroner, they think Vaulen will manage to copy last years
sixth place. "Tore Haugvaldstad came to Vaulen this spring and have
managed get in many important players, amongst them Jan Tore Kleiberg.
He went empty in Viking earlier this spring, but is now getting back the
temptation and will for training. There is no doubt about the talent. In
half of the games will also Vaulen have advantage at home with their astro
turf, they will secure themselves some points that way. A position on the
highest part of the table is absolutely in reach," writes Frode S.

Also this season will Vaulen boss Tore Haugvaldstad be used as expert commentator
for NRK Lokalen on the radio. The 42 year old will mostly be live on Monday
mornings, the day after the two local giants Viking and Bryne have been
in action. NRK have also Rune Ottesen in their expert panel. Rune that
got 17 caps for Norway in his time, whom can forget his wonder goal against
Sweden in 1977? His son Jan Ove is also well known as he is leading vocal
for rock sensations Kaizers Orchestra.
Kvindesland in NRK Rogaland informs that Tore also this year will be used.
"Tore Haugvaldstad will together with Rune Ottesen be expert commentators
for us. Both of them had the same role last year," Kvindesland tell Vaulen
"We will use
them in connection with concrete news issues regarding Bryne and Viking,
and also before and after selected games."
To get Tore in
the radio, you must tune in NRK P1 when they have local broadcastings.
"They will be on at various times, but often you can hear them the mornings
after games - usual between 7:00 and 7:30."
the way we like it - Vaulen trash Torvastad away
(0) 0 - 1 (0) Vaulen Vaulen won
1-0 today after a late goal from Ole Bjørn Bredesen in front of
50 spectators at Håland stadion. Consider Vaulen needed five games
last season to reach the same points and only had two away win in total
- this is a really good start for Vaulen to build on. With much traveling
in this group, there is expected a lot of home wins, but Vaulen surely
managed to cope with Torvastad!
of Sport in Torvastad, Svein Magne Skeie, was not pleased with the result.
"Today we missed the will amongst the players and we did a poor game. Vaulen
was a very ordinary team that we should had beaten," reflected Skeie to

to Haugesunds Avis. Though Oli also picked up a yellow card from referee

big favorite in this division. An experienced team that last season lost

Reserve team is likely to be stronger this season than last year, and promotion
should be in reach for the second team that last season ended as number
six in their 6.th division group. Vaulen start their season away to Høle
on Monday next week, after that will the games at home come thick and fast.
This season will Vaulen 2 play at Hinna grus.
