Time now to look at how June, July and August went for us.
The first game we had to play in June was an away game against Sleipner, we won this game 1-0 which was closer than I would have liked but it was a win nonetheless, the toughest match of the month followed this which was a home game against league leadera Skovde who are very tough opponents, unfortunately we narrowly lost this game 1-0 which meant we were a win behind them again.
The Skovde loss was followed by a 1-0 loss away to Ljungskile but after that result we got a pleasing 3-1 win at home to Limhamn Bunkeflo meaning we were still in 2nd after June.
Our first game of July was a home fixture against Oddevold which we comfortably won 3-0, this was followed by a 2-0 away win against Utsiken and an unfortunate 2-0 loss when we were away to Husqvarna FF. We were still 2nd in the league at this point and a win behind league leaders Skovde.
Due to the First Round of the Svenska Cupen we had two league games brought forward, these being home games with Varbergs BoIS and Kristianstad to finish off July, we won both of these fixtures 2-1 but were still 2nd in the league.
Our first match in August was our Svenska Cupen First Round match away to Nike who are now in the 5th tier. We had not played them since 2012 but I was pretty confident of victory. However this did not happen as Nike scored in the 90th minute to win 1-0 and send us out of the cup. I was absolutely fuming after this and the team knew it.
After this match however, one of my star MC's Ville Kolehmainen was called up to play for Finland Under 19's in a friendly with Scotland Under 19's, I was incredibly pleased with this and attended the game. Kolehmainen played 40 minutes of the match and got the assist on Finland U19's first goal which made it 2-1. The game finished 2-2.
Our next game was away to professional side Myresjo in the league, we won this match 3-1 to go top of the league, however Skovde had a game in hand but they lost this match meaning we were still top by 2 points.
We played Norrby at home after this match and we won 2-0 to go 5 points clear of Skovde who lost 3-1 at home to Kristianstad, I was very pleased with this. Our last game in August was a trip away to Lunds BK which resulted in a slightly disappointing 0-0 draw, however we were still top of the league.
I leave you with a selection of pictures.
