Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Erik was born on this date in Porsgrunn, Norway.

  • Pre-match interest centred mainly round the possible appearance of the two Scandinavians in United's side and when the teams were announced the surprise was not the presence of the pair, but the fact that Swede Kjell Olofsson was listed under his own name, the striker having signed a short term contract on the morning of the match. Norwegian Erik Perdersen, however, was listed as a trialist in a United starting eleven which showed a whole host of changes from the one which had drawn at East End Park.

  • Signed For Dundee United

He spent his first two seasons as a first choice in the side after making his debut as a trialist. In November 1997, he collected a runners-up medal in the League Cup final.

  • Last Appearance - Dundee United 3 - 0 Aberdeen

    We maintained our 100% record over the Dons this season with a third victory and again we prevented the Dons scoring. Although Aberdeen started well, we made the better chances and were unlucky to have a goal chalked off before Kjell Olofsson nodded us in front. In the second half a Billy Dodds header and David Hannah's fine execution to a good move saw us cruise to an easy win in the end.
