Club cooperation agreements important for development

Since the Swedish FA introduced new rules this year, making it easier to loan players on short notice between Damallsvenskan clubs and lower division clubs, several cooperation agreements have been signed. The latest between Sunnanå and the local Skellefteå 2nd division side Morön BK.

Six of Sunnanå's younger players, among them Anna Bodén, Linnea Gjersvold and Emma Jonsson, are named in the agreement with Morön. The longtime objective is to establish Morön as a 1st division club. This will make the conditions for player development in the region much better. "We need to let our talents get better match experience to establish ourselves in the top of Damallsvenskan", says Sunnanå's Sören Gustafsson.

Other Damallsvenskan clubs have also signed this kind of deals. Umeå IK has agreement with 1st division sides Umeå Södra FF and Själevad's IK. In the 1st division openers last weekend Umeå's June Pedersen played for Umeå Södra (3-3 draw against Sundsvall) and Emma Berglund for Själevad (1-0 win over Ornäs), both making major contributions to their host teams.

In Uppsala the newly promoted 1st division club Danmarks IF has signed a similar deal with Bälinge. There are also extensive cooperation agreement between Djurgården/Älvsjö and 1st division club Bollstanäs as well as between Malmö FF and Husie, but as far as I know these do not yet include player loan deals.
