01.01.02: Vaulen Beachboys thanks
for the great Vaulen year we had in 2001 with the first team gaining a
creditable 6.th spot in the 3. division! In 2002 the club will try to make
an even bigger effort in the 3. division with a new experienced manager
ready in Tore Haugvaldstad. Else there is a hope to keep most of the players
to next season, while new players are expected for the new season. The
team start preparing for the new season in the coming days. Meanwhile it
will be interesting to see how Vaulen do it in the cup. Perhaps they advance
through the first qualifying rounds and meet a Tippeliga team at Hinnabanen?
Vaulen Vårcup will also be arranged
in 2002, this time it's the 22.nd time that the cup is played with about
350 teams expected! This time there is a hope that the cup not will disturb
league games that much as there is a chance to get pylon lights at Vaulenbanen
in time for VVC 2002!
All the news from 2001 have now
been moved here!
back on track
Vaulen I.L. will start their first team trainings on Monday 7. January
at 8:30 pm. The training sessions are meant to be hold at Hinnabanen, but
with degrees under 0°C the artificial pitch is not preferred to play
on. The solution will therefor be to train at Hinna Grusbane instead, or
hope to see the local government to spread some sand at the artificial
pitch. A worry for the team will be if Vaulen Vårcup's games at Hinnabanen
will collide with the trainings. With three work-outs a week, there can
be a conflict here as most of the games in the eldest classes will be played
of course be new boss Tore Haugvaldstad's first training with the players.
There have been a lot of questions around the squad this winter. New players
in seems to be the full back Jan Erik Ahlstrand Pedersen (20), an Ice Hockey
'keeper with a past from Vidar FK. With some formation training he should
be able to secure himselves a full back place in the team.
From Tasta comes
versatile Kris Georgsen. Else is a former topscorer from Viking's Junior
team, Henning Frode Holm (19), understood to be making a decision this
month. Other names that can be added to the squad is Pedro Salgado and
Frode Nilsen. Some players are also in doubt, question marks must be written
around Thomas Idsø, Tord Løberg and Jone Holgersen. Meanwhile
have Kjetil Aasland and Gitle Martell Aarre (pictured) a lot of kids, and
it's understood that they must get allowance from their wives first...
at the moment is therefor Bjarne Hov, Erik Gysland, Glenn Malmin, Jarle
Eike, Stein Ivar Andersen, Anders Idsø, Alexander Landsnes, Sondre
Urban, Fredrik Eriksen, Inge Martin Hinna, Sverre Møllegaard, Ole
Bjørn 'Oli' Bredesen, Eirik Eckholt, Svein Bjørnar 'Bauni'
Skjæveland, Øystein Winstnes, Kjetil Aasland, Gitle Martell
Aarre and Jan Erik Ahlstrand Pedersen.
from TBK Cup
Vaulen Beachboys have now got in all the results and facts from TBK Romjulscup.
Perhaps a bit dry stats, so to get it more alive I desided to make it in
a Text-TV modus! I don't know why but I actually think it's most fun to
study football tables at Text-TV! I hope some other feels the same so enjoy
for VB Text-TV!
to sign with Vidar this week?
Thomas Idsø have trained with FK Vidar lately and he is now likely
to sign up with the Lassa club this week. Also the 1. division club FK
Haugesund have showed interest, but now it seems like the midfielder will
sign up for Stavanger's second best team.
Nordland hopes to sign up the youngster this week.
"He is training
with us and will get a contract sketch this week," Nordland admits to Vaulen
to fight for promotion in the 2. division this season and have got in Mike
McCabe as new boss. It's understood that Thomas Idsø will get an
important role for them if he choose to sign.
"It's a very
exciting player that we want to get into our first team squad for the coming
season. We hope that this will get through for us," ended Alf Nordland.
with Haugvaldstad have now started
On Monday this week Vaulen's first team started to train again. With 4C
the condition was very well and the artificial pitch was used. New boss
Tore Haugvaldstad steered the session with 15 players all in diffrent shape,
some of them was a bit rusty hadn't moved much since Christmas! Haugvaldstad
had though planned an easy and nice start with a lot of play with ball.
Some testing of the players is to be taken the coming weeks. Steini Andersen
was very good, and his first full season with the club can be great!
Idsø: -Nothing is decided yet
Thomas Idsø claim that he not is to sign for Vidar this week. Though
is it understood that FKH's manager team are to decide this week when they
will invite Thomas on a trial play. "I only want to comment the rumors
telling that I'm to sign for Vidar this week. That is wrong," said Idsø
to Vaulen Beachboys' Guestbook. "I will first travel to Haugesund to train
with them, likely next week, before a decision will be made," admitted
the 21 year old. Thomas Idsø was Vaulen's best player last season
and won the award as best player in the 3. division by Stavanger Aftenblad.
FK Haugesund boss
Kjell Inge Bråtveit is now ready to welcome the midfielder. "He is
ready to come up north. We will discuss it in the manager team through
this week when it will be an issue to get him to Haugesund," Bråtveit
told Haugesunds Avis.
reports: Torvastad in first round
Vaulen's Eirik Sunde was on a fixture meeting at Rennesøy on Tuesday.
There it was known that Vaulen will kick off their season away to Torvastad.
A hard start, but not impossible. The official fixture list have still
not been released yet, but it's understood that Vaulen's last game will
be played at home to FK Haugesund 2. Whom knows perhaps it will be a clash
between the Idsø brothers at each side? Thomas Idsø eyes
a contract with the the Haugesund side, while his twin brother Anders play
for Vaulen! The games this season will be spread over all the week days,
except on Sundays.
Vaulen this season play against 2. and 3. division clubs in the SR cup.
Fans will of course remember last season when Vaulen lost most of the games
against 3. and 4. division sides! This tournament starts 31. January and
will be valuable match training.
More details from
preseason is that Vaulen also this year plans a Denmark tour. According
to Geir Larsen will the team travel in the first part of the Easter. The
trip is likely to go to Skagen as last year and some friendlies is belived
to be arranged.
goes for a comeback!
Vaulen Beachboys can exclusively tell that former 1. FC Union and Georgtown
Metros professional, Stig Molde, goes for a comeback. The 33 year old have
had an achilles problem the last year, but now there is a hope to see him
back in the orange kit once again. Stig of course played for the Beachboys
before he travel abroad. 'Stikkå' that also have played for Jarl
and Storhaug will be Tore's assistant this season.
some expirenced players and manager Tore Haugvaldstad will also try to
bring in another veteran in Pedro Salgado. The offensiv player haven't
played in a whiler and is still a bit rusty. But everyone that is known
about his potential will now hope that Pedro deside to go for a comeback!
Until further he will only train with the Vaulen side before he later is
to deside if he have enough motivation to continue. Salgado was the only
new player on training at Monday, it's therefor left to see if players
like Georgsen and Holm will appear later this month.
Vaulen will kick of their difficult second season in division 3. against
Torvastad. Beachboys will take the ferry up north to the former club of
Blackburn Rovers striker Egil Østenstad (pictured) 27.th April.
Last season Torvastad (as Vaulen) ended number 6. in their group. Torvastad
had several well known names in the squad last season and it's belived
that most of them will continue. Rune Lothe and playing assistant boss
Sjur Jarle Hauge is well known with Tippeliga expirence. Øystein
Strand leads the ambitious club that aims for promotion this season. Hard
games will come thick and fast for Haugvaldstad's diciples. Their first
home game will be to Vedavåg Karmøy 3.rd May. While the last
league game is away to strong Randaberg. It's not a secret that Vaulen
wanted games on Thursdays, and a long summer break. Odd Svendsen in Rogaland
Fotballkrets confirms this. "Vaulen, Tasta, Buøy and Vardesneset
all made impression that they wanted Thursday games. That is totally okay
for us. We haven't got problems to find availebal pitches, but it gives
the teams less days to train on," said Svendsen.
Below is the
full fixture list.
fixtures 2002 - Division 3 Group 13
Forget Hinna and their likes down the divisions. This year will Vaulen
face the big ones in SR league. The traditional league gives the teams
a preseason with good matching, of the five groups have Vaulen assumably
been placed in the hardest. This year manager Tore Haugvaldstad will get
his team tested for real as Viking 2 is amongst the opponents! The Division
2 team that of course will include several players that is near play in
Tippeligaen. Amongst them former Vaulen player Rolf Magne Olsen. The games
will be played at the diffrent teams home stadiums. Meaning that you will
have to travel to Hinnabanen to see the lads play at home.
*Dates and times
in Group 3 is not final, but indicates how the set-up mainly will be.
an odyssé with a good ending
For Vaulen's A team was 2001 like an odyssé that in the end was
landed home with a great 7-4 win over Bryne II. After gaining promotion
in 2000 they finally ended as sixth in the 3. division. The team was lead
by manager duo Svein and Harald Øksnevad. Before the season they
had planned a various training schedule where yoga seemed to be the only
thing missing... Spinning, terrain running, strength training and swimming
was the recipe. With only one training of football a week, then always
match related, was the thought to keep the players tempted on football
for the whole season.
official trainings started 15. January and the numbers of players was overwhelming.
A long period with ice and snow was though to force them players some problems.
The team played
in the SR-league with various results. But training fixtures against Ganddal
and Havørn showed that something was on it's way.
In the Easter
23 persons from the club traveled down to preseason in Skagen, Denmark.
Geir Larsen was tour leader for the training camp, and the whole trip was
said to be perfect this time. There was a very good mood and it was successful
both in a social way as well as the football. The new generation of players
got much credit for that.
was played, where the win over Runar was the highlight!
IN - 2001
OUT - 2001
league play started poor with four straight loss. This due to many reasons.
Some of the players didn't had the best start point as they had missed
much of the alternative training trough the winter. The team should also
had been matched with better teams in the preseason to be ready for the
level. Against Nærbø in the fifth game should though the team
get pay back time winning 8-0!
then it started to mount itselves for Vaulen Beachboys. First they beat
Rosseland on Bryne Stadion. Then in their next game they won incredible
6-4 to unbeaten league leaders at the time, Vardeneset. The players had
now answered those that had predicted them down in front of the season!
The interest for the team started to grow. Meanwhile was interest from
the press something new for the club. They was also involved on betting
charts, as well as this unofficial Vaulen site.
In front of
the coming season there are doubt about some of the players. Jone Holgersen
and Tord Løberg have made hints that they is to step down a little.
While Thomas Idsø is wanted by clubs like Vidar and FK Haugesund.
Thomas that also won the award as best 3. division player in Stavanger
Aftenblad - miles in front of next one.
The club have
been in contact with several new players in front of the next season. The
club count on some of them to arrive. The first team is now a fine mixture
of youngsters and elder players. A generation change has started. It's
therefor important that the players with routine continues and keep up
the level such that not all of the responsibility will come on the young
Inge M. Hinna
OF THE YEAR
The board have
also seen the value with success and interest around the first team this
season and have made an expression for that they want an even bigger effort
put in on the team this season. Something that was proved when they hired
Tore Haugvaldstad as new boss. The former Viking 'keeper have experience
as coach for several local sides and the club welcomes him and believe
he will live up to the expectations.
After the 2001
season decided manager Svein Øksnevad and the assistant, his brother
Harald, to quit. They also got help from Frode Eike on a temporary base
in the autumn due to Harald's busy work situation. Frode Eike, the father
of midfielder Jarle Eike, got a lot of the honor for the teams great shape
in the autumn. Where Vaulen in the end became best of 5-6 teams that was
fighting against each others from mid table down to the relegation area.
that came to the club in May 1999 stand back with a great record sheet.
When he joined the Beachboys they was in the bottom of the 4. division.
He managed to keep them afloat, before he in 2000 brought them to the 3.
division. In 2001 Vaulen got a pretty 6.th place in the 3. division of
12 teams. The club is therefor grateful to see Svein continue in another
role in the club in the future.
to Eirik Sunde at the club for sharing these details!
on Vaulen training!
There was a burglary during Thursday's Vaulen training. One or more took
the chance to break into the wardrobes and got away with money and creditcards.
Stein Ivar Andersen's car keys had also been found, with result that the
burglar had stolen his girlfriends car! There is a doubt about the barracks
was locked at this particular day.
Thomas to trial on Tuesday?
FK Haugesund is to cut down their expands with 2,1-million kroner by releasing
six to seven players. On Thursday Haugesunds Avis wrote that the club now
will try to get a big enough squad by signing players from lower divisions.
Their boss, Kjell Inge Bråtveit, needs 18 players at a good level
to have on the trainings. FKH leader Nils Halvor Berge have admit that
the club have contact with several Bosman players that can come to FKH
on a moderat wage. Haugesunds Avis writes that it is in the cards that
Vidar's Ronny Espedal that currently is on a trial, and Vaulen's Thomas
Idsø that is on his way to Haugesund is amongst the players Berge
have belive in playing infront of Maakeberget. On Tuesday 15. January will
FKH, with a lot of trial players, play Vard on the artificial pitch. The
game kick off at 18.00 and it's said that their manager will use the game
to look at several trialists. Thomas Idsø is belived to be amongst
# But the crisis
in FKH is not over as investors have left the club, and a solution must
be found before 15. January when the players will demand wages. FKH must
also find a balance as if they release too many good players they will
struggle to avoid relegation. If eventually FKH's first team should relegate
in the coming season, will their second team no longer be allowed to play
in the 3. division. FKH II plays in Vaulen's group, something that can
mean that only two teams will relegate against normal three.
# Vaulen IL
will keep their Annual General Meeting, AGM, on Tuesday 29.th January 2002.
The board will then report on the situation at the club. The meeting starts
20.00 at Hetland Vidergående Skole.
squad is very little at the moment with only 15 players on the trainings
this week. Last Thursday only 9 players appeared, but that was due to the
players work situation. There is though a hope for manager Tore Haugvaldstad
to see new faces come in the next weeks. Defender Kjetil Aasland is on
the injury list after picking up a knee ligament injury during the POL
tournament. The fans favourite is belived to be out for a month.
to Haugesund next week
Haugesunds Avis have today informed that Thomas Idsø not will play
tonights trial game for FK Haugesund. It was belived that Idsø should
play amongst with a lot of other trialist, but the club have now informed
that Thomas first will come to Haugesund next week to train. Meanwhile
have FK Haugesund's economical situation now been solved. But the club
have get rid of several players to reduce their expenses. It's belived
that they will try to get in 6-7 new players. FKH boss Bråtveit has
a good eye to Thomas Idsø that he earlier has compared with Swedish
international Svante Samuelsson!
VVC programme sponsors
Also this year will Vaulen Vårcup be played. From late in February
and in several weeks - teams will play at the local pitches. This year
more games is hoped to be played at Vaulenbanen. The cost for pyloon lights
have been taken from the 2,5-million kroner that come as support from the
local government. Now it will be an all-season stadium! The club have about
40 teams in the club and with 500-600 youngsters are VVC also a way to
get an income to the teams. The money that is earned is mainly putted back
to the teams. The club have therefor these days started the hunt for programme
sponsors. Before the deadline that is 1. February the club hopes to get
in valuable cash for the club!

Vaulen Beachboys asked; "What do Vaulen need?". In total 27 persons gave
their answer. Not that much to base on, but at least an indicator on what
Vaulen fans mean and dream! Of the alternatives most wanted a rich investor
to the club. Whom haven't dreamt that Bill Gates actually is a Vaulen fan..?
Else many wanted an old premier star to the club, if the fans wanted Ian
Rush or Rune Gjerde should not be said, perhaps an issue for the guestbook?
Meanwhile was the want for a new stadium also a thing the fans wanted.
Hinnabanen is a great stadium, but the club miss some identity with now
playing outside their neighborhood. None wanted 'Spin Off' products, despite
I always have thought it would had been a great idea to sell Vaulen Carrot
Cakes at Helgø...
A new poll is
now availebal at the Info
page,also drop me a line if you have an idea for a new
close in on 'Salvi'
The club still hope to see some new faces. After they have failed to bring
in anyone of them they requested trough the winter. So far there have been
few at the trainings, and manager Tore Haugvaldstad now hopes to boost
the squad with some more players. Riska's Jan Egil Salvesen have started
to train with Vaulen. 'Salvi' (born 31.12.1979) is a central defender and
will train with the Beachboys a while before he deside if he wants to stay.
He had some minor injury problems last season, but played a vital role
for them gaining a fine 3. position in the 4. divison - their first season
after being promoted from the 5. division. From 1999-00 he was in the army.
Vaulen also target a young Vidar 'keeper Tom Arne Bø Pedersen. On
Friday he refused to sign a new contract with Vidar, he trained with Vaulen
on Thursday and will come again on Monday.
at the other clubs
Here is a short view and some thoughts on the opponents the coming season.
Have got a new boss in Gaute Johannessen, that also was wanted by Vaulen
before they hired Haugvaldstad. He will get help from Knut Hammer Larsen
as playing assistant. Also his brother Stig Hammer Larsen have joined the
club. In the last two years have the club promoted from the 5. division
to the 3. division. In front of this season they look stronger than in
a long while. Gaute have also brought with him three players from Vidar.
2: A lot of questions about what team FK Haugesund's Reserves will
play with this season. Probably it will be a lot of youngsters. Their Youths
is of course known as some of the best in the country. A team that probably
will have very variable results.
Grannekam promoted from the 4.th division last season. Their from the Vindafjord
and Ølen district. About Elin Tvedt is their celebrity supporter
is unknown. It's understood that they not is looking back and wants to
stay up there. Harry Skulerud have returned for them as new boss. But a
young side that can fall apart, as they did in the KM game to Buøy
last season loosing 5-1 after leading 1-0 with 30. minutes to go!
Have a very strong side with expirence from the 2. division. They have
got the former FKH star Knut Ystås that also will work as assistant
for the team. Also notoric goalscorer Knut Ove Nytræ will get a vital
role for them.
be amongst the favourites in this group. RIL is a team that have been in
the 2. division in several years and have the potential to be the third
biggest club in the district. They have though used much time on getting
in a new manager. Kenneth Giske went to Bryne last season. In comes Anders
Buer and Henning F. Holm (pictured) two players from Viking Junior. Both
was wanted by Vaulen but choosed RIL due to geographical reasons it was
Powerful striker Knut Hammer Larsen have left them. They must be seen on
as one of the weakest teams in the group now. Erik Tangen will continue
as their boss.
Ambitious club that ended as number 6. last season after some tactical
changes lifted them in the end. Have tried to strengthen their team this
winter, but had to back out on a 4. division striker from a local rival.
Haugar demanded 50.000 kroner for the talent! They are belived to keep
most of the players from 2001. The manager duo Sjur Jarle Hauge and Rune
Lothe have expirence from top football.
Ulf played in Vaulen's group last season, they struggled a bit but after
help from Rune Stakkeland amongst others they landed a new contract home.
Ulf was meant to serve Sandnes FK players - but now they are on the same
level so there is no reason why Kåre Nygaard's side shouldn't be
even better this season!
Secured themselves many great players that impressed last season. Their
topscorer Richard Enge have been eyed on by several clubs. In front of
this season they have also got in Even Klinkenberg from Vidar. A great
striker with expirence from Viking. Enge and Klinkenberg are seemed on
as perhaps the best striker pair in the division. Tasta boss Ole Søyland
will perhaps surprise again with his side from Tasta.
Beachboys goes against the hard second season. The team have lost some
expirence through the winter and have struggled to get in new names. But
with a new man in the dugout in Tore Haugvaldstad the well trained youngsters
will perhaps look to surprise. Key player Thomas Idsø is though
belived to be on his way out. VEDAVÅG KARMØY: Vea boss
is Jan Arne Vågen and he have a side that must be seen on as the
largest favourites to win the league. They probably have the best squad
and they play fine football. The 30 year old left winger Kristian "Kick"
Størkesen is probably one of the best players in the division. Their
skipper have been linked to FKH, but is likely to stay.
Impressed last season. A team that is know for their counter attaks. The
quick side have in front of this season got in a couple of players that
will strenght them even more. The goalie Ståle Oldeide with a past
at the top level for Bryne. Also former Viking and FK Haugesund striker
Idar Mathiassen (pictured) is likely to play for them, he have had back
problems but is now on his way back. FKH have though sounded to be interested
in getting him back. Åkra as Vaulen is in their second season.
Two former Vidar players are as good as clear to sign up for Vaulen - goalie
Tom Arne Bø Pedersen and versatile Jan Erik Ahlstrand Pedersen.
Manager Tore Haugvaldstad also eyes Pedro Salgado and Jan Egil Salvesen.
Both have trained with the team lately and hopefully will they deside to
join the side. Pedro Salgado makes a comeback with football after being
known as one of the best divisional players in the area back in the 90's.
He is seemed on as a strenght to the team, perhaps will he join Inge Martin
Hinna in a new striker duo? Also playing assistant boss, Stikkå,
will get in a word here! 'Salvi' that is a Riska player have been amongst
the 15 players that have been on the trainings lately. The club also have
a little hope to see Thomas Idsø continue, he is training with FK
Haugesund this week. But nothing is finalled yet. A squad will hopefully
be ready until the end of the month when the SR league starts.
Jarle Eike admits that difficult opponents awaits in Viking 2, Sandnes,
Figgjo, Buøy, Randaberg and Orre. "It will be very hard. But it
can be okay to get match training against better teams. Then we will at
least know what we have to achieve when the league kicks off," said Eike.
in SR league
The final fixture list for SR league has now been announced. Notice that
there have been some major changes! The clash versus Viking 2 will be seen
on with most interest as several Vaulen players have a past there, amongst
them Alexander Landsnes.
- Week 4
Vaulen had a so-called Cooper test on Wednesday, but poor news should appear
for Tore Haugvaldstad (pictured) as Pedro Salgado got a back problem. It's
an old injury that now can force the forward to miss valuable preseason
According to the Official FK Haugesund site have Thomas Idsø done
well at training with them this week. Vaulen's best player last season
has been tested by FKH boss Kjell Inge Bråtveit this week. Their
squad are now as good as ready for next season with 17 players ready of
the wanted 19. The most will be ready in few weeks it's said.
"The 21 year
old midfielder Thomas Idsø from Vaulen has impressed on training
and also he can be offered an contract," is says at fk-haugesund.no.
If FK Haugesund
goes for Idsø, they will only need a central defender before their
squad is complete.
Veteran player and charismatic football maniac, Egil Christensen, turned
60 years on Sunday 27. January! Stavanger Aftenblad wrote a big story about
Egil on Saturday that can be found here!
Kistå have played for Vaulen and Jarl all his lifetime. "I started
in Jarl, now I'm at Vaulen, Boys 50. We aren't good enough to be amongst
the Veterans," said chief manager Christensen. "It's fun and meanwhile
serious if you do a mistake now as earlier," admits Egil that now will
retire after having worked in 44 years.
won the local Youth Championship with Jarl in 1958, after they won over
Bryne in the final. With his nickname, "Kistå", he dominated down
the left winger.
is long. He have played for or trained the first teams to Brodd, Jarl and
Vaulen. The Girl team and Junior team to Vaulen, and U-15 and U-13 in KFUM
and Midtbygden. He have also been arbitrator in Brodd and leader of Sport
in Jarl's Youth scheme. Amongst the players he have got through is the
great football player Per Henriksen during the time in Brodd. Per that
was a star in Viking and got 10 caps for Norway!
Else he have
played for a massive crowd of 80,000 in England. The game was Chelsea versus
Wolves and Kistå played in the local orchestra, Kvaleberg guttemusikkkorps.
He also played in front of 60,000 in a game between Arsenal and Cardiff.
"I was in Kvaleberg orchestra from the start in 1951," said Egil that played
cornet. And ever since 1955 he have been a Gunners fan.
well for Viking Hockey
Vaulen defender Jan Erik Ahlstrand Pedersen was rated as amongst the best
players by Stavanger
Aftenblad, when Viking Hockey played two games against Bergen Flyers
this weekend. On Saturday the 1. division side drew 2-2, while they won
5-3 on Sunday. Jani (20), that is the son of a former football star and
nephew of a hockey legend, has ice-hockey as first priority at the winter
time. Viking boss Kjell Erik Myreng is very pleased with the goalie. "He
has developed to a quality keeper, and then is the defence also better,"
said Myreng. Vaulen manager Tore Haugvaldstad allows him to play two sports
despite he can't be at all the football trainings. After all the central
defender is a welcomed addition to Vaulen's team. Due to him being a top
level athlete he is allowed to take his military locally in Madlaleiren.
Jan Erik, that will come back for full at training when the winter is over,
is very strong in duel play after much play in the physical sport hockey
is. Jani came from Vidar FK infront of this season and have already showed
a good football understanding in training.
Vaulen / Idsø still hot for Vidar
Vaulen player Rolf Magne Olsen have signed a professional deal with Tippeliga
side Viking. Rolli was one of the players in Vaulen's good 80's generation,
he admits that is one of the reasons why he now can live of playing football.
"I think that was important for my part, we was a nice gang," said Rolli
that will be a father soon. On 20. February will Vaulen meet Viking II
in Nærbø's winter league - SR-serien, but Rolli hopes not
he will play for the Reserves then. "I don't know about I will play against
Vaulen in the SR-serien. I hope not..." said Olsen that was near to retire
and start with boxing when Viking choosed to purchase him from Vidar.
# FK Vidar
still hopes to see Vaulen's Thomas Idsø play for them next season.
"We have lost many players in front of this season," admitted Vidar supremo
Dan Lunde in Vidar that hopes to see Idsø in the squad.
"The only one
that isn't ready of the new ones is Thomas Idsø that is wanted by
Haugesund. If Haugesund don't get him, he play for Vidar," said Lunde.
to play trial game on Saturday for FK Haugesund
Vaulen's Thomas Idsø have spent the last couple of weeks on trial
with FK Haugesund. On Saturday will he play a trial game for them away
