Timeline

  • Date of Birth

    Lars was born on this date in Härnösand, Sweden.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Lars was a Swedish Under-21 and Olympic international who had been with several clubs in his native country, including IFK Gothenburg. He had played against United in the UEFA Cup final in 1987 and was also in the AIK Stockholm side which faced United in 1984. Initially on a short-term deal, he then signed a longer contract. Lars was then a regular in the side and he collected a runners-up medal in the League Cup final in November 1997. He left in May 1999 and returned to Orebro.

  • It was debut day for two players as Lance Key in goal and Lars Zetterlund made their debuts. The Swedes presence in midfield meant United had three Scandinavians in their ranks for the first time since the mid-sixties and their initial impact was no less emphatic than their fellow countrymen from three decades earlier.Scandinavian inspired United dominated this match.

  • A return to form brought the point necessary to secure third spot, although we had to come from behind after being reduced to ten men following the dismissal of Stewart McKimmie five minutes before the interval.

  • Another late Celtic goal cost us points, the only consolation this time being that it didn't mean a defeat. Lars Zetterlund headed us into the lead from fellow Swede Kjell Olofsson's corner early in the second half.

  • Last Appearance - Clydebank 2 - 2 Dundee United

    A narrow escape at Forthbank as a timely Darren Patterson counter earned us a replay. It was the second time we had to come from behind, Kjetl Olofsson's well executed equaliser negating Nicholl's rocket opener from 30 yards. Gardner drilled in an 18 yarder to give Bankies the lead again before Darren Patterson met a Joe Miller corner which though cleared had first crossed the line to save our bacon.
