Our new trainer: Harald Stangeland
Most of you already know our one and only Norwegian Harald. He will train the selection girls this year and will also be the coach of the first team. All this together with Wouter. Still, we have some questions for Harald...
Who are you and what do you do in daily life?
I am a lost Norwegian in Amsterdam. I try to do as little as possible in my daily life, but sometimes my wallet tells me to work (mainly marketing). Apart from that I am busy playing handball and football plus looking after my three beautiful flats.
What’s your handball experience? Since when are you a member of US?
This is my 30th anniversary with involvement. I have played everything from top-level in Norway to rubbish level in England (and the Netherlands). I've also been coaching various teams along the road. I joined US four years ago.
