Biography


John (or Svein) was a Norwegian international with Lyn Oslo. He made his debut as a trialist and was with United for just a month before leaving the district. However his affection for United came in useful more than twenty years later, by which time he was an official at Lyn Oslo. He accompanied Finn Seemann as a guest of United at Easter Road in October 1965 just before Finn signed for United.
