Norway constitutional monarchy in Northern Europe

Norway, officially the Kingdom of Norway, is a Nordic country in Northwestern Europe whose territory comprises the western and northernmost portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula; the remote island of Jan Mayen and the archipelago of Svalbard are also part of the Kingdom of Norway. The Antarctic Peter I Island and the sub-Antarctic Bouvet Island are dependent territories and thus not considered part of the kingdom. Norway also lays claim to a section of Antarctica known as Queen Maud Land.

He started his career in Skånevik IL, and later went to SK Vard Haugesund. He joined FK Haugesund in 1996, [1] and enjoyed a spell in the Norwegian Premier League in the seasons 1997 and 1998. The team was relegated that year, but returned in 2000. [2] Ness was the team captain at that time. [3]

Captain (association football) team captain of an association football team

The team captain of an association football team, sometimes known as the skipper, is a team member chosen to be the on-pitch leader of the team: it is often one of the older/or more experienced members of the squad, or a player that can heavily influence a game or have good leadership qualities. The team captain is usually identified by the wearing of an armband.

He left Haugesund ahead of the 2002 season for Sogndal Fotball. [2] [4] However, he broke his leg in May 2002, [5] and when he returned to football two and a half years later, his club was Vard Haugesund. [6] He retired ahead of the 2006 season, this time due to a back injury. [7]

Sogndal Fotball Sogndal ILs association football section

Sogndal Fotball is the association football section of Norwegian sports club Sogndal IL from Sogndal in Sogn og Fjordane. The club was founded in 1926.

Having been offered non-playing positions in different clubs already in 2005, [8] Ness worked as an assistant coach for Vard in 2006. [9] Ahead of the 2007 season Vard was looking for a new head coach. Ness applied for the job, but as Vard hired Steinar Lein, Ness was only offered to continue as assistant coach, which he rejected. He also rejected another offer to do a comeback as a player. [10] Ahead of the 2008 season, Ness became the head coach of Torvastad IL on the fifth tier of Norwegian football. [11]

Stord Sunnhordland FK

Stord Sunnhordland Fotballklubb was a Norwegian association football club located in Leirvik, Stord. It was founded in late 2002 as a cooperation between the football sections of Leirvik's local multi-sports club Stord IL and lower-division Moster IL. The club was named Stord/Moster FK until 2006. Two investors, football agent Terje Simonsen and professional footballer Kjetil Løvvik, were behind the merger. It was founded to create one large club in the Sunnhordland region, to attract support behind the club. Critics claimed that the investors were mainly looking to develop players to sell for cash. Top goalscorer the first season was Kjetil Løvvik himself, who quit a professional career to play for the club. Stord/Moster fared well on the football field; they won their Third Division group twice in a row, and on the second occasion they gained promotion through playoff. They then played two seasons in the Second Division. Their biggest talent was Christian Brink who went on to higher levels of football.
