17:11 Ready for GL8

The Gold Rushers tried to beat Dynamo White Maltesers for the first time, but they failed:

“We have been confident, but we may now realize the teams of Area 51 still are too strong to beat” Coach Nik Zenger summarized. “But is there a reason to be sad? Not at all! Yes the income would have been slightly higher in cup matches, but the fun in competing friends within the Golden League is worth much more!”

The other disappointing moment was the end of the season in HTUM U18 Championship yesterday; RJs must win their game, which they did, but they needed help by others to pass Arrows and FCUM Youth. It still looked good when the clock hit eighty minutes, but unfortunately the two teams finished their games victorious which gave the third place to RJs in the end.

FC Rünenberg is proud member of the HTU Manager (102312) - the greatest federation in HT-World! The Fed is home to many different competitions and the most important one called “The Golden League”!


22:14 Mid Season

"Can we or not? That is the question!" said Coach Nik Zenger today when he was asked about the next awaiting challenges in the league and the cup.

"Our best cup-season was when we reached the eighth round in the Switzerland Cup some seasons ago. This season we added one more week - well not within the Switzerland Cup but anyway we play a cup-match in week nine, which is not too bad. And yes we are looking forward to pay back last season’s final defeat, which was the reason we now are playing in the fifth again. Dynamo White Maltesers is a strong opponent hard to predict and, as we all remember; very lucky!" he added with a smile.

"Regarding the league, it happened only once before that we started with seven consecutive victories and it ended with fourteen… does anybody recall? Yes, it was the very first season of the Gold Rushers back in 2009!” he knows there’s many of the supporters hoping for the repetition of that success. “Let’s get back to where I began: Can we or not?”


23:19 Welcome to 2016

It’s time to come back into that fight! The staff was very busy during the last weeks and they talked about how to proceed and avoid the very first relegation in the history of Sir Schluurggi’s career here in HT. And there has been action regarding the squad too; some well-known players have left the Gold Rushers recently.

What is the managements plan look like? We are curious to see where this may lead to. Maybe some of you would prefer to hide and wait but we would like to encourage you instead: keep the faith in the management and give them enough credit to watch what happens next and follow the teams fight to stay in the fourth. The team needs every single support they can get to get that curve out of the depth of area 51!

And be there when the Gold Rushers host Polomint, the Scottish top team for the first leg of the Round of Sixteen in the Golden League Masters!

What a great and interesting start into the New Year! We wish you all a great and successful 2016! Take care


16:33 Interview with Sir S

First we have to ask for forgiveness! Our website has dried out like one of the salty seas around the world. That’s what happens if there is only little time to write interesting stories on one hand and an instable service of the site’s provider on the other. The second reason is now strong enough to come along in a different style: we will publish our future stories in this manner, meaning we’ll hope to hand you links to our latest news written on single files like this one. The only thing we still have to handle is finding the mentioned time to put the news on paper.

19:37 Time to change things!

“This is the very worst start ever. And it is not really what you, my dear friends, may have asked for and not even close what you, dear followers, deserve. Now it’s time to change things! We have to get the focus back on our strengths and do what we can do best: Go after Gold!

Sure, this season may not be easy at all. Our opponents are strong and even stronger than they have been last season, but is this a fact making us nervous? Is it a truth making us despairing? The only word to answer these questions is; NO!

We will come back and we will stay in the fourth division, no matter what hurdles we have to cross or what rocks flying in our path! We will fight until the very last minute, and the very last second to reach that aim. And no matter how hard the rain will fall or how strong the wind will blow: We will never surrender! I promise!

Coach Nik Zenger


22:54 Milestones

The Gold Rushers had to go through a qualifier to stay in the fourth division, and they played a great game to do so!

In fact this last competitive game was one of the milestones the Gold Rushers reached within the latest sixteen weeks:

It was our very best game so far and we gathered more than 400 Hatstats for the first time!

Having an overall TSI of more than one million was another milestone the team reached recently!

And we have now the first players with a TSI of more than 100k!

The team is ready to play their second season in the fourth division and especially in Area 51, and we are curious about what milestones will be reached next.

By the way: the Gold Rushers have played an outstanding Supporter Week Trophy, finishing within the top 500 with an 8-0-2 record!


12:43 Big Win at the Mill

What a game! The Gold Rushers proved their abilities and enthusiasm, and showed the world, they are really ready to take those challenges to come. This is calling for more!

A crowd gets around an angry young man, face down in his hands and he can’t understand… why this other man in front of him was holding this shiny little red carton in the air! Sylvain Hardegger saw himself absolutely misunderstood. He never had in mind to hurt the other guy, who permanently bothered him with trash talk about Sylvain’s family in general and mother in special. No, he then was ready to kill that guy, but (un)fortunately the referee blew the whistle too fast. The team mates – of both involved players - came close trying to tear them apart on one hand and convince the man in black to put that little piece of plastic back to the pocket on his back on the other. It took a while before at least one of these two missions...

11:40 Good Start

The adventure called Area 51 (Swiss IV.51 Series) has recently started and the Gold Rushers won their first point in the fourth division. It will be hard to add more.

Last season the IV.51 was the strongest series in the Swiss fourth division, and after the first round is played the experts say it’s ranked seventh so far. This means the strength has decreased only a little what makes the job to stay here harder than expected. Our team is actually taking the last place regarding the statistics.

Our new Coach, Nik Zenger, isn’t giving too much respect to these numbers:

We played a good game, and yes, we luckily won our first point. I was a bit surprised by the statistics since I really thought we might be closer to the middle of the table, but this is only the beginning. I’m sure we will climb that ladder and knock on the doors of the higher ranked teams. Of course the others are strong enough...

17:59 Big Adventure in Sight

It was the greatest season ever! No matter if there will be the second win in the Golden League upcoming Sunday, but it would be the cherry on the cake!

It was last Friday evening when Sir Schluurggi, Romain Krecker and Nik Zenger entered Sutter’s Mill towards the meeting room on the second floor. The doors have been closed, no that’s the wrong word, the have been sealed. The three men had to find the most promising way to take that third chance for promotion to the fourth. We have been waiting in the Biergarten of the Golden Cup Bar & Restaurant, and we were waiting for many hours. Sitting there in the sun, having some beer and watching what’s going on behind that closed window wasn’t the worst thing to do on this very warm and sunny evening, but the longer it took, the bigger the nerviness.

12:36 Stay focused

The season is done! The Gold Rushers and the Clanners have had excellent seasons finishing in the top two both. But the Gold Rushers still have to stay focused now!

While the Clanners still have to wait for the first Gold, it’s the Gold Rushers who have earned their seventh trophy in the series last week! This was the result of the probably best season ever! They played a nearly perfect season and have only been defeated twice in twenty-two games, no wait in twenty-eight games – including the six Golden League encounters too! Now they have to prepare for the challenging, hopefully entertaining and maybe victorious last four matches. Coach Romain Krecker – who made a promise some seasons ago – gave this to share:

"This is not the right time to celebrate what we got, but to stay focused on what we could get soon!"
