Lillestrøm SK

Lillestrøm Sportsklubb is a Norwegian professional football club from the city of Lillestrøm, just outside of the capital Oslo. Starting with the 2020 season, they will compete in OBOS-ligaen, the second tier of Norwegian football, following their 2019 relegation; the club was founded after the merger of two local football clubs. Their home ground is Åråsen Stadion, which has a capacity of 12,250 people, while the principal training ground is Lillestrøm stadion, or the indoor arena, LSK-Hallen; the club holds the Norwegian record for the most consecutive years without being relegated, having played 45 seasons from 1975 until 2019. Over the years the club has had around 40 players. There has been a number of foreigners who have represented the national teams of Sweden, Senegal, Malta, South Africa, Tunisia, Canada and Nigeria; the club have teams in bandy and futsal. Lillestrøm SK was founded on 2 April 1917, it has been Norwegian League champions five times, most in 1989, in 1986, 1977, 1976, 1959.

Additionally, they have won the Norwegian Cup in 1985, 1981, 1978, 1977, 2007 and 2017. When Arne Erlandsen left for Sweden and IFK Göteborg after the 2004 season, former LSK player and German international Uwe Rösler took over as head coach of the team, his first season in charge became a successful one, with Lillestrøm finishing fourth in the league. This position secured LSK a place in the Royal League; the team made it to the 2005 Norwegian Cup final, but lost 4–2 to Molde in front of a crowd of 25,000 at Ullevaal Stadion. In the 2006 season Lillestrøm were among the top favourites to win the league. Following a disappointing 4th place, it was announced on 13 November 2006 that Uwe Rösler had been fired from his position as head coach of Lillestrøm. Only a few days Tom Nordlie signed a three-year contract. A key signing ahead of the 2007 season included Fredrikstad's Simen Brenne, an attacking midfielder with a knack for scoring important goals. LSK under Nordlie played a 4–3–3 system, which invites rapid transitional play between defence and attack, Lillestrøm finished fourth in the league and won the 2007 Norwegian cup, beating Haugesund 2–0 in the final at Ullevaal Stadion.

On 29 May 2008, Tom Nordlie resigned from his position as head coach after a disappointing start of the 2008 season. Statements from Nordlie suggested that fundamental disagreements with club director Jan Åge Fjørtoft contributed to his resignation, it emerged that the conflict between the controversial coach and the players was another big contributor behind Nordlie's departure, his punishing training regime in the run-up to the 2008 season being cited as the main complaint. Nordlie, no stranger to controversy during his career, had "lost the dressing room" as early as autumn 2007. Erland Johnsen and Frode Grodås stepped in as caretakers. On 19 August 2008, the club announced that Henning Berg would take over as head coach on 1 January 2009, after leaving his post at Lyn. Berg's first task would be to rescue the team from relegation, a feat he accomplished in his first match as head coach. LSK beat Rosenborg 4–2 in a classic encounter to secure their place in the Tippeligaen; the 2009 season was one of great upheaval.

In an tight economic position, LSK sold or released 11 players before and during the season, with Berg restructuring the squad and bringing in new talent. Enormous injury problems made the start to the season a difficult one for Berg's charges. After 9 games, LSK seemed destined for relegation. An impressive comeback saw Lillestrøm deliver a strong second half to the season finishing 11th. Newcomer Nosa Igiebor had an impressive first season in the Lillestrøm jersey; the team continued to impress over the course of the start of the 2010 season. LSK were in early June fifth in the Tippeligaen, undefeated in 14 league matches, they saw however a dramatic drop in form over the summer which saw them flirt with relegation, before a late surge of form late in the season salvaged 10th place. In 2011 LSK made an exciting start to the new season, scoring an incredible 18 goals from their first five league matches, including a 7–0 drubbing of Stabæk in their first league match of the season – away from home.

Early season form was good enough for the team to flirt with the top three until the end of July. Early in August, stars Anthony Ujah and Nosa Igiebor were sold to stave off the dire economic straits of the club. In-form Icelandic midfielder Stefán Gíslason was out of contract and left the club. In mid-August, prodigy striker Björn Bergmann Sigurðarson was injured for the rest of the season, the club failed to win any of their last 11 league games, a new record for Lillestrøm. Coach Henning Berg was sacked three matches before the end of the season as investor Per Berg promised fresh funds for acquiring quality players after the season; the club again flirted with the prospect of relegation. This despite an abject 34 points gathered over 30 league matches, which would mean relegation. Former Elfsborg coach Magnus Haglund was appointed coach after the season. Lillestrøm was quite active in the transfer window ahead of the 2012 season, bought 11 new players; the change of coach and flurry of transfers did the club no good however as they again flirted with relegation until just a few weeks before the end of the season, hovering between 12th and 14th place before a strong finish to the season propelled them into 9th.

On the whole the season was deemed a big disappointment however and

Isca Dumnoniorum

Isca Dumnoniorum known as Isca, was a town in the Roman province of Britannia at the site of present-day Exeter in the English county of Devon in the United Kingdom. It served as the tribal capital of the Dumnonians after the Romans; the city walls of Exeter mark the former perimeter of Isca and excavations in the 1970s and 1980s verified that the town was home to a Roman fortress certainly for the Second Augustan Legion. The town seems to have grown up around this fort but seems to have gone into decline prior to the Roman withdrawal from Britain c. 410. The name Isca Dumnoniorum is a Latinization of a native Brittonic name describing flowing water, in reference to the River Exe. More the name seems to have meant "full of fish", although it came to be a simple synonym for water; this is reflected in the modern Welsh name for Exeter: Caerwysg meaning "fortified settlement on the river Uisc". The same name was used for the River Usk in southern Wales, causing the settlement there to be distinguished as Isca Augusta, while the Devonian Isca was called Isca Dumnoniorum: Usk of the Dumnonians.

Exeter began as settlements on a dry ridge ending in a spur overlooking a navigable river teeming with fish, with fertile land nearby. Although there have been no major prehistoric finds, these advantages suggest the site was occupied early. Coins had been discovered from the Hellenistic kingdoms, suggesting the existence of a settlement trading with the Mediterranean as early as 250 BC; this is disputed however by Prof T P Wiseman. Fortress Following their initial invasions, the Romans established a 42-acre'playing-card' shaped fort at the site around AD 55, it was the base of the 5 000-strong Second Augustan Legion for the next 20 years before they moved to Isca Augusta. Both Iscas were home to their families as settlements are thought to have grown up outside the fortress gates to the north-east. Buildings within the fortress, such as barracks and workship, were timber structures, the post-trenches of which were excavated in the 1970s in advance of the Guildhall shopping centre development.

The only known building in the fortress not of timber was a stone-built military bathhouse. The water for the bathhouse was supplied by a natural spring via an aqueduct which entered the fortress through the rear gate; the excavations revealed the hot part of the warm room. The bathhouse was supplied with an external exercise yard, one corner of, a cockfighting pit; the legion had formed part of the Claudian invasion of Britain in AD 43, under the command of the future emperor Vespasian. Vespasian led campaigns against both the Dumnonii; the presence of the legion at Exeter is supported by the discovery of a dolphin antefix from levels within the military bathhouse dated to about AD 60. The antefix appears to have been created from the same mould as an example from the legionary fortress at Caerleon—where the legion is known to have been stationed from around AD 75; the legions of Britain were rearranged after Suetonius Paulinus's victory against the Boudiccan rebellion. There was a small subsidiary fort at Topsham.

A supply depot along the line between the Isca fortress and Topsham was excavated at the former St Loyes college site on Topsham Road in 2010. Initial dating suggests that it was occupied at the same time as the Isca fortress, c. 55–75. Another Roman fort was discovered in 2019 under the coach station near Bampfylde Street. Settlement The settlement of Isca Dumnoniorum seems to have developed around the Roman fortress, it is one of the four cities attributed to the Dumnonii by Claudius Ptolemy in his 2nd-century Geography and it served as the tribal capital of the Dumnonii. It was listed on the late-2nd century Antonine Itinerary, where it forms the southern terminus of route 15 on the Fosse Way, on the 7th-century Ravenna Cosmography, where it appears as the confused entry of Scadu Namorum; the fortress was given up around AD 75 and shortly afterwards its grounds were converted to civilian purposes. The military baths were too large for the local population and were demolished, although parts were incorporated into the forum and basilica built on the site.

A smaller bathhouse was built to the southeast. In the late 2nd century, the ditch and rampart defences around the fortress were replaced by a bank and wall enclosing a much larger area, some 92 acres. There is evidence of bronze working. A possible stock-yard has been identified and Isca was a key market for livestock and pottery produced in the surrounding countryside; the importance of Isca as a trading centre is demonstrated by the discovery of more than a thousand Roman coins around the city. However, the dates of these coins suggest that the city was at its most prosperous in the first half of the 4th century. Bishop Ussher identified the Cair Pensa vel Coyt listed among the 28 cities of Britain by the History of the Britons as Isca, although Ford read it as a reference to Penselwood and thought it more to be Lindinis. Isca was known to the British as Caer Uisc but, after the Roman withdrawal from Britain around 410, there is little evidence of habitation in Exeter for 3
