IFK Klagshamn

Ground: Klagshamns Idrottsplats

Visits: 1

Date: 20th August 2011

Match: IFK Klagshamn - Olympic  2-0  (Division 2 Södra Götaland)

Attendance: 287


After 14 rounds of Division 2 Södra Götaland there was still one team who hadn´t lost this season. IFK Klagshamn, situated just south of Malmö, were two points clear of Ljungby before the match this afternoon. With today´s opponents being 3rd placed Olympic and the match also being a derby I set off for Klagshamn hoping for a decent attendance and an entertaining match. Klagshamns IP is only some hundered meters from the sea (Öresund) and with it being very windy at home I had plenty of clothes in my car. As I arrived it was quite warm though and I could leave most of my clothes in the car. Klagshamns IP is a very basic ground without any proper stands and if the club are promoted I doubt they would be allowed to play their matches here. IFK Klagshamn on their way to Division 1 and the fact they are still undefeated did not only attract me but also Sweden´s biggest newspaper (Aftonbladet). I soon understood the man next to me was a journalist but assumed he worked for one of  the local papers in Malmö. When I finally asked him he said he was working for Aftonbladet. "I didn´t know you are going to matches in this division" was my surprised reply but I was told they are going to write a story about the small club going up the league pyramid.


The match was quite good, IFK Klagshamn scored in the 44th minute and in the second half their goal-keeper showed his class too making several really good saves. In the last 10 minutes Klagshamn scored again and won the match 2-0. After watching them two weeks in a row I have to say they are, for this level, a really good side and I would be very surprised if they do not win this league. Whether they will play at Klagshamns IP next year remains to be seen though.
