Melbo are second in the fourth division table in favor of the Halogaland Division with 24 points, but only managed a 1-1 draw against Sortland last weekend. Harstad is the series’ top leader with 33 points.
Stockmarket is second in the standings with only three points so far this season. And last weekend the team lost 0-4 to Moreald at home.
Stokmarknes coach Nils Olaf Rusten Larsen says his team goes into Saturday’s game primarily to learn.
– If you look at the table, is this almost a raw party?
– Not the match we planned for or imagined we’d get points. We are betting on further development of our young players who did not play in the fourth division before this season. Larsen says Melboe has a squad with many players with more experience than ours, and we see it as a learning platform.
– Although it might look like a tough party, we hope we can put in a good performance and get some matches. “We hope our young children will have a good experience and learn something,” he adds.
– Is there anything special about such neighboring settlements?
Yes, there is something special about those matches. I myself played for Stokemarkness against Melbo, also at first-team level. It’s the atmosphere and the rivalry between the north and the south of the island, says Larsen.
