We started January 2022 with 8 players on contract and the goal of stabilizing the club after our relegation from 11 years in the second tier of Norwegian football.
We were able to get our final signing one week before the season started and our squad was almost complete with 18 players available.
With a tough start to our season with two straight loses at home and away we were looking to find our feet in the PostNord league, fortunately the players were professional and started to believe in the processes that the coaches were putting in place.
As the summer approached we began to win games but also found inconsistencies with our performances which of course directly impacted on our points tally, however the players never threw in the towel and proceeded to stand tall and fight for every ball.
We started the second half of the season in 5th position but again we started a little slow losing at home, but by the end of the season we only slipped one position to 6th on the ladder. We had an average age of 23 and without counting VIF & Odd 2 we were the 3rd youngest average age in both Postnord leagues.
In summary, Strømmen IF has built a young professional football team that we can be very proud of. We will continue to search for players who can add to our squad and help to create and inspire the younger generation of players within Strømmen IF.
