NEWS SUMMARY WEEK 51
Halfway point provides deserved break
2010 was a year that will go down in Randers FC's history. A dramatic comeback from well beyond the brink in the 2009/10 season, Trainer of the Year award for Ove Christensen and a mediocre first half of the 2010/11 season. The last match of the autumn season ended in an away draw against SønderjyskE, meaning Randers FC achieved a run of 7 draws and only 3 defeats away - a record only beaten by league leaders FCK. On the other hand, Randers failed to win any away games.
The team now languishes in 10th place, with its sights firmly set on another comeback spring season. The winter break will be spent on bringing the players up to peak physical fitness and the search for reinforcements on the transfer market.
First training session is set for 10 January with the first test match against AaB on 27 January. Each player has also been given an individual 'maintenance' training plan. A total of four test matches have been arranged before the season resumes in early March.
Randers FC sign contract with young striker
Randers FC have signed home-grown rising star Nicolai Brock-Madsen on a two-year professional contract. Brock-Madsen has already played at international level for the Danish U-18 team and played three matches in the Superliga for Randers FC, scoring once.
Randers FC's talent scout Peter Elstrup commented:
"Nicolai is a highly talented striker. He can play deep, is physically strong and fast. There are of course areas where he can improve, but we already know that this is a lad willing to work hard."
