First Team Debuts
Göran Marklund(Signed August 16th, 1997)


That first league victory still proved elusive.It took the award of a controversial second half penalty from which we went two behind to really stir the team into action. Kjell Olofsson pulled one back with a header, but we just couldn't summon up an equaliser despite dominating the final half hour.
