Newcomers Kristianstad looking at Qbik players, Umeå's Arnqvist watching teenagers
Therese Björk, a former Kristianstad player, and Amelie Rybäck from relegated Qbik are both high on the list over wanted players at Kristianstads DFF. The ambitious club has made an offer to Björk, who is happy that her old club has gained promotion, but is still doubting: "Maybe I shouldn't say that, but it might be the fourth time I get relegated from Damallsvenskan". The experienced player got relegated with Kristianstad/Vä 2001, Jitex 2006 and now Qbik. "I'm so tired of going on these long trips [to away games] and almost never get to win". Kristianstad's sport director Ulf Berglund has more faith: "We have a good team. We're not going up just to hang on, we intend to establish ourselves among the 7-8 best."
Another of Kristianstad's prospects, Icelandic national team player Erla Arnadottir, played a few fall matches with the team before she moved north to Skellefteå (Sunnanå's home town). "Both I and the club wants to see me playing for Kristianstad next year, but my girlfriend is living in Skellefteå so it's not just up to me", comments Arnadottir. And if she should end up in Skellefteå, Sunnanå, where she has played before, might be an alternative.

Umeå's Roland Arnqvist was at Visby and watched Sweden's 18 year olds losing to Germany 0-2. The players that prompted his trip are Öster's Petronella Ekroth and Sofia Jakobsson and Eskilstuna's Sara Fröjdfeldt. Coach Jeglertz has stated that he "wants them on the team next season". Arnqvist also denies that Denmark's Cathrine Paaske Sörensen should be close to signing for Umeå - "There is no truth in that, we haven't talked with her or about her".
