IK Savehof managed to bring some Scandinavians as reinforcement and promovated some junior players as well.

Coach Signell remains realistic when it comes to their goals for the season: “In domestic competitions we want to stay on top, but we know it will be tougher this year because of the losses.

“In the Champions League our objective is to go to the next round and then we will see.”
