Wishing everyone a great Xmas and prosperous new year!
We now head towards Xmas and the new year and the work is already ongoing to get season 2014 ready.
Thanks to all that have been part of the club this year be it a player, fan, friend, organisation or business.
Any questions regarding playing with one of our teams or general enquiries can be forwarded to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
See you all next year!
Div5 Ladies promoted to Div4!
Thanks to the few that came to the AGM. Mats Gustavsson, the chairman of LFC for the last five years, has now stepped down to make way for our new president Anna Rutgersson. We're extremely pleased Anna has volunteered to help move the club forward and join the committee.
It goes without saying that we are very grateful to Mats for all his work, energy, personal time and passion with LFC over the last five years. Some of the club highlights he has been involved in is the promotion to Div3, our match against IFK Gothenburg in the Svenska Cup, R1 promotion to SR2, our international friendlies, getting the club name changed correctly to FC, as well as helping to arrange our 10th anniversary dinner dance and club nights out amongst many others. Thanks Mats from the club, players and fans.
I'm sure you're all as pleased as the committee is in welcoming Anna.
Her own words on her new appointment:
"As the new chairman (or chairwoman or president if you prefer) I just wanted to say I feel very honored taking over this role in Långholmen FC.
For those of you who don't know who I am, here's a little background story.
I'm a supporter of IFK Göteborg since a little child. When I moved from Gothenburg to Stockholm in 2001, I was therefore glad to find there was a supporters group here (called Änglarna Stockholm, which I was the chairman for 2009-2012).
But I felt I missed not having a team that I could support here in Stockholm. For obvious reasons I could never support the big clubs in Stockholm and I felt no connection to any other clubs at all.
Then the cup game between Långholmen FC and IFK Göteborg took place. I just loved the atmosphere the LFC fans created and I loved that the players never gave up on the pitch.
There and then I decided that Långholmen FC would be my second team to support.
During this season I've helped the first team a bit during the games as ”lagledare”.
Mats has done a great job over the years and obviously knows the club very well, so it's with great humbleness I take on this role after him. With the long time commitment and experience that Pete Skinner and Morty McCarthy have and together with the new board members Chris Allen and Guillaume Masse, I'm convinced that we all along with the rest of the people in the club, the players and the supporters can help the club developing in a positive direction.
If you have any suggestions or questions or complaints, don't hesitate to contact me at email@example.com
As mentioned by Anna, Chris Allen and Guillaume Masse have also volunteered to join the committee for the coming LFC year. We're obviously delighted that they're onboard too. Welcome lads.
