Gundo - Brodd IL 2.divisjon Avd.3 End of season report 2012
was achieved then in my second season at Brodd and now I'm out of the bottom rung of Norwegian football I feel my challenge will really get going - it's always a struggle getting out of any one of for 2nd divisjon groups with only one place available for promotion. Winning the title by 7 points was fairly straight forward in the end despite injuries and suspensions mounting up in the final games. We only progressed one round in the Cupen after an impressive win over Adeccoligaen Byrne, we were however suitably dispatched by Tippeligaen outfit Odd Grenland in the next round.
Having lost experienced target man Rune Lange the clubs top scorer through retirement at the end of my first season, replacing him with quality was key. In Geir André Herrem
a quality replacement was found and with his pace and finishing power he notched 14 goals in 18 league games.
Attacking Midfielder Henning Rugland
played a key role on the left wing/forward after he was retrained to play in that position, only because we had no other options in that position other than inexperienced youth team players, it turned out to be a masterstroke anyway.
was the main breakthrough from the youth team. He looks promising, has great physical attributes and with a bit of improvement in other areas (mainly finishing), he could could turn out to be a decent player in the coming seasons.
Tippeligaen 41st down to 43rd in the Rankings.
Next season at the Midjord Stadion - Survival will be the order of the day and improving what promising youngsters I have got for the future.
