Bislett FK keen on winning an unprecedented back-to-back promotion

After a very successful season, during which both the first and second team of Bislett FK got promoted, the club’s management is now gearing up for the next season. They want to win back-to-back promotion to the 6th division.

“We know it won’t be easy to win back-to-back promotion, but if ever we had the team to do it, it’d be this team!” says Bislett FK Chairman, Geraldo Cantuaria. “We have a perfect recipe for the win: two managers that have the experience needed to win the league, plus we won’t lose as many quality players as we did in previous years. The club’s future looks really bright both on and off the pitch.”

“Off the pitch, we have revived the Bislett Social Club (BSC),” Geraldo continues, “The BSC is a big part of the Bislett FK culture. Our social events are always fun and bring our players closer together. Especially for players that are new to Oslo and join our club, it’s a great way to make new friends and amp up their social life.”

The 10-match unbeaten run

Since Ben Briggs and Erik Reijrink, Bislett FK’s 1st team managers, took over the team, Bislett FK has been on fire, and finished in the top of their division each year. Their recent record speaks for itself with 10 straight wins, scoring 3,8 goals a game.

With a winning streak like this, the club is ready to take on a new division and compete for the top places straight away. And the managers dare to dream big and are confident back-to-back promotion is possible.

We’re only getting started

“Two and a half years ago, Ben Briggs, Dan Whymark, Matt Morrison, and myself started the project to bring Bislett FK to the 5th division in Oslo,” says Erik Reijrink. “Our promotion last year was only the first step. This season we will try to win the promotion again. We are looking for new players to challenge the current squad and to keep things fresh. Because we want to continue playing our free-flowing counter-pressing football.”

“Being Dutch myself, I’ve got the typical Dutch football DNA in me. Which means we want to play attacking football and win by scoring more goals than our opponents,” says Erik.

Ben Briggs is quick to add: “Agreed, we need attack-minded players, but they need to help the team out defensively. At the moment we have a group that has a lot of grit, determination and a strong will to win. We are looking for players that are willing to work for the team. Our defense starts with our front players.”
