History

The Danish 1st Division club Herfølge Boldklub and bankrupt club Køge Boldklub decided in March 2009 to merge. [3] The club played their first season as a merged club in the 2009–10 season of the Danish Superliga. [4] The season ended in relegation.

In the following 1st Division season, they finished second and returned to the Superliga. [5] Following the promotion manager Aurelijus Skarbalius left the club for a job as assistant manager of Brøndby IF and was replaced by Tommy Møller Nielsen. [6] The club's second appearance in the Danish Superliga ended in another relegation. [7]

The 2012–13 season started with a series of bad results, and this led to the sacking of Møller Nielsen in September 2012 after a 5–0 defeat against Lyngby Boldklub. [8] He was replaced by his assistant Per Frandsen, who led the club to two consecutive sixth-place finishes before leaving for a youth job at Brøndby IF in June 2014. [9]
