Biography


Henrik spent the first few years of his career in his native Denmark, playing for Boldklubben 1909, AGF and Viborg before arriving at Tannadice in the summer of 1994. The keeper made his first appearance as a trialist during the tour of Malaysia before signing for the club for a reported fee of £180,000.

Brought in as a replacement for the departing Guido van de Kamp, Henrik made his competitive debut in the disastrous 5-0 defeat to Hibs at Easter Road in the opening League match of the 1994-95 season. This was followed up with a clean sheet against St Mirren in the League Cup, but he was soon replaced by Alan Main who had returned from a serious back injury. An unused substitute for a handful of games, he came off the bench at Ibrox Stadium in October when Main had to go off injured, saving a first half penalty. However, Kelham O'Hanlon took over in goal for the remainder of the season, with Henrik spending the rest of his time in the reserves.

Amidst allegations of irregularities in March 1995 following the dismissal of manager Ivan Golac, his transfer to United was investigated by the football authorities in both Scotland and Denmark, but no action was taken. Released in May 1995, the keeper moved on to the Far East playing for South Korean side Suwon Samsung Bluewings, and Thai side Rajpracha. He later moved into coaching, returning to Denmark with Vejle Boldklub.

Timeline


  • Date of Birth

    Henrik was born on this date in Fredericia, Denmark.

  • Signed For Dundee United

    Henrik spent the first few years of his career in his native Denmark, playing for Boldklubben 1909, AGF and Viborg before arriving at Tannadice in the summer of 1994. The keeper made his first appearance as a trialist during the tour of Malaysia before signing for the club for a reported fee of £180,000.

  • The build up to the new season hadn't been ideal as Manager Ivan Golac had to make his team selection minus seven first team regulars. Unfortunately events on the park were about to follow suit! Within eight minuted the Tangerines had had two players cautioned, but worse still. They trailed to a Willie Findlay goal after he volleyed a shot past Danish debutant keeper Henrik Jorgensen. United's already perilous position was exacerbated in the 27th minute when Alex Cleland, booked early on for a foul on Evans, was harshly yellow carded when he bumped into McAllister, thus reducing United to ten men.

  • Last Appearance - Rangers 2 - 0 Dundee United

    Playing less than 48 hours after making that disappointing exit from Europe, Dave Bowman and Cralg Brewster retained their places in the side after coming on as substitutes against Tatran, whilst Gary Bollan was drafted in at Ibrox after not even figuring in the squad which had travelled to Slovakia.
