"It has been eventful years and exciting places to work. 

"Not least, the combination of club teams and national teams in South Africa was a developing period. 

"It was four years there before I decided to return home to Sweden. 

"The opportunity to return to Blåvitt appeared and then there was no hesitation. 

"It is a big club that I also have a connection with from before.

"I'm looking forward to starting work at Kamratgården, which looks a little different compared to when I was here last," says Baxter who left Chiefs at the end of last season.
