902 Henrik Pedersen

Biography

Danish international striker Pedersen spent a single season at the KC Stadium during 2007/08 and played his part in the club’s unlikely run to the play-off final against Bristol City.  He operated mostly on the left side of midfield rather than up front, but still contributed some important goals.  Injuries prevented Pedersen from contributing more during the final stages of the season, and those injuries also explained his departure back to Denmark following City’s promotion.

Pedersen was born in a small town north of Silkeborg and began his career at his local top flight side.  In six years Pedersen scored a goal every two games, form that enticed Bolton Wanderers to claim his signature in 2001 for a £650,000 fee.  A further six seasons at Bolton saw a reduced goal return but Pedersen was nonetheless regarded widely as an important part of Sam Allardyce’s squad.

On leaving Hull City Pedersen returned to boyhood club Silkeborg where he spent a further four years before retiring in 2012.  He now owns a sports bar in the city.

Pedersen won the first of his three senior international caps for Denmark in 2000.
