Jón Þór had taken over from Gunnlaugur Jónsson towards the end last season and had said he would like to continue despite relegation.


Johannes Karl Guðjónsson who was coach at HK this year appears to be the favourite for the job. Other names mentioned have been Sigurður Jónsson and Pétur Pétursson, all former ÍA palyers.

10/10/17.....ICELAND ARE GOING TO THE WORLD CUP !!

Iceland qualified for the 2018 World Cup Finals last night for the first time after a 2-0 win against Kosovo in Reykjavík.


Heimir Hallgrímsson team become the smallest country population size to ever make the finals.

They topped Group I ahead of the likes of Croatia and Ukraine.

With the national team going to Russia it could mean a break in next years domestic competitions.

30/09/17.....ÍA FINISH SEASON WITH A DRAW

ÍA season ended with a goal less draw this afternoon against Víkingur Ólafsvík in Akranes.


Jón Þór Hauksson kept faith with the same starting eleven that he had used in the previous four games.


ÍA had a chance to take all 3 points with a 29th minute penalty, Albert Hafsteinsson penalty was saved by the visiting goalkeeper.


Víkingur will join ÍA in the second tier next year as the draw was not enough to keep them up.


The board will have to decide over the next few weeks to appoint Jón Þór Hauksson as permanent coach or look for someone else to take over.

29/09/17.....SEASON COMES TO AN END TOMORROW

The 2017 Pepsi Deildin comes to an end tomorrow afternoon.


Its been a disappointing season for ÍA with their relegation confirmed a few weeks ago. The final game is against Víkingur Ólafsvík at the Norðurálsvöllurinn.


The visitors occupy the remaining relegation place, they need to win and hope ÍBV lose at home to KA. A draw for Víkingur probably wont be good enough due to a big goal difference.

25/09/17.....NEW CONTRACT FOR MIDFIELDER

Arnar Már Guðjónsson (pictured left) has signed a new two year contract with ÍA.


The deal will keep the 30 year old midfielder at the club until 2019.

24/09/17.....NO GOALS AT THE VÍKINGSVÖLLUR

ÍA completed this seasons away fixtures with a 0-0 draw at Víkingur Reykjavík this afternoon.


Jón Þór Hauksson's team extended their unbeaten run to four games with the draw.


They finish the season next Saturday when they play Víkingur Ólafsvík in Akranes. The visitors will need to take something from the game otherwise they will be relegated alongside ÍA.

23/09/17.....ÍA AWAY TO VÍKINGUR TOMORROW AFTERNOON

ÍA go into Reykjavík tomorrow afternoon to play Víkingur at the Víkingsvöllur.


With ÍA relegation confirmed in midweek the team will be looking to end the season on a good run.


Víkingur are sitting in mid table in seventh place under former Akranes coach Logi Ólafsson.

21/09/17.....ÍA RELEGATED !!!

ÍA relegation to the Inkasso Deildin was confirmed tonight.


Fjölnir won 2-1 at home to FH meaning that even two wins from the remaining two fixtures wouldn't be enough for ÍA to climb out of the relegation zone.


The last time ÍA dropped down to the second tier was in 2013, they won promotion at the first attempt so hopefully we can repeat this next year.

17/09/17.....SKAGAMENN STILL HANGING ON !!

ÍA still have a small chance of escaping relegation after a 2-2 draw against Stjarnan this afternoon.


As expected Jón Þór Hauksson kept the same line up for the third successive game.


Arnar Már Guðjónsson (pictured left) got ÍA off to the perfect start with a goal after just 40 seconds. Guðjón Baldvinsson levelled the scores after 10 minutes.


Into the second half and Hólmbert Aron Friðjónsson put the visitors in front with a 59th minute goal. ÍA drew level on 88 minutes, Steinar Þorsteinsson scoring for the third game in a row. With the game coming to an end, a clash of heads ended in Stjarnan's Hólbert Aron Friðjónnson leaving the pitch in an ambulance.


ÍA still have a small chamce of avoiding the drop depending on other results in the remaining games, but could even be relegated later tonight if Fjölnir take points from leaders Valur.



16/09/17.....ÍA AT HOME TOMORROW AFTERNOON

ÍA play Stjarnan at the Norðurálsvöllurinn tomorrow afternoon.


As we know ÍA are in need of as many points as possible to avoid relegation.


As for Stjarnan they are in second place in the table, they are 7 points behind leaders Valur and could still win the title if Valur collapse in the remaining games.


Things have improved for ÍA over the last few games and I would imagine Jón Þór Hauksson will keep faith in forwards Steinar Þorsteinsson and Stefán Teitur Þórðarson who have both scored in the last two games.

14/09/17.....ÍA DRAW AT FJÖLNIR

ÍA have drawn 2-2 away to Fjölnir tonight as the 19th round of Pespi Deildin fixtures were played.


Jón Þór Hauksson kept the same starting line up that had won against KA at the weekend.


After a goal less first half, it was Fjölnir who took the lead after 48 minutes when Ólafur Valur Valdimarsson scored an own goal. Stefán Teitur Þórðarson scored on 53 minutes to level the scores, his second goal in as many games. ÍA went ahead on 60 minutes when Steinar Þorsteinsson (pictured left) made it 2-1. With 15 minutes left to play Fjölnir equalised with a goal from Þórir Guðjónsson.

The game ended 2-2, ÍA remain bottom of the league on 14 points. Fjölnir are in ninth place and just outside the relegation places on 21 points.

Fjölnir are in ninth place with 20 points.

ÍA will be looking to build on the weekends win against KA, another win tomorrow could make for an exciting end to the season.

10/09/17....ÍA WIN AGAINST KA !!

Two second half goals have given ÍA their first win since 19th June to keep alive their hopes of escaping relegation.


Jón Þór Hauksson had defender Viktor Örn Margeirsson back in the team and a young strike force of Stefán Teitur Þórðarson (pictured left) and Steinar Þorsteinsson.


ÍA had the chance to take the lead during the first half when they were awarded a penalty on 40 minutes. Þórður Þorsteinn Þórðarson had his penalty saved.


The game sprung into life on the hour mark, Stefán Teitur Þórðarson scoring his first ever league goal. Ten minutes later and it was 2-0, Steinar Þorsteinsson scoring this time with his third of the season.

KA were reduced to ten men on 90 minutes when Callum Williams was red carded.

There was even time for Guðfinnur Þór Leósson to make his league debut when he replaced Steinar Þorsteinsson on 90 minutes.


ÍA now play Fjölnir in Reykjavík on Thursday as the fight to stay in the top division continues.

09/09/17.....ÍA BACK IN ACTION TOMORROW

Breiðablik took the lead after 21 minutes, it was ÍA defender Gylfi Veigar Gylfason scoring an own goal.
