The eleventh round of BiH Telecom premier football league in which NK Metalleghe BSI play a historic appearance in the company of the best B & H team has finished. The Kings are currently occupying the tenth position with eight points. They opened the season by winning on Bilino Polje and in the next round after a representative break,they will play against Čelik again.
We asked Club president Mr. Zoran Dekić for a review of the previous period.
“The tenth place in the table at the end of the season brings the survival and the new season in League 12. When viewed from this angle it meets our ambitions, but we are not satisfied because we deserved better placement and more points to our account. Probably the fact what we are newcomers, as well as that we play our domestic matches in Travnik has had an influence. We used the pause to correct any errors and that in the remaining seven rounds of this year we give our best so that we have more points when the winter break comes. Ahead of us are particularly important four games, three of which we will play in Travnik (Čelik, Mladost,Vitez). It is possible that the outcome will significantly determine our status in League 12.”
As to how the work on the stadium is progressing, will be in the shortest possible time will we be able to play at the stadium in Jajce, and what needs to be done further to obtain a license.
“This is a question for the relevant municipal services because we are tenants on Mračaj. There has not been any significant progress in its reconstruction according to expert analysis of the relevant persons, the stadium Mračaj must experience a thorough reconstruction to meet standards of NS BiH. Poor state of the stadium and the pitch itself are burdening us in the training process. Certainly we want to see this issue resolved as soon as possible because it is completely different to play home matches in our city. News from the last session of the Municipal Council says that this problem will be solved in the future.”
It seems that success of the Kings is not valued enough and recognized by the relevant structures that are supposed to help the sport.
“Division 12 is the focus of the sports public in BiH. TV broadcasts, reports in the electronic and print media have promotional effects for Jajce and the region. Every positive result brings up not only the players and the club, but also the city itself. It remains permanently recorded that a small club from Jajce celebrated at Kosevo winning against Sarajevo. This fact should be promoted better. It would be interesting to see how Jajce loses in tourism because we play our matches in Travnik. It should be noted that the entry of seniors in the League 12 automatically took the youth categories to a higher rank, so now cadets and juniors also play against Zeljeznicar, Zrinjski, Sarajevo … “
The recent elections were conducted in a football bodies NS SBK / ŽSB.
“After a long time we are pleased to point out that we finally have our original representatives of the highest authorities in the NS SBK / ŽSB. It speaks volumes that we have in the past made significant positive changes in the organizational structure of the club and our results open up many possibilities for us. We expect that in the future our representatives enter the appropriate bodies in the State Union, ” Mr. Zoran Dekić completes his review.
