Thanks go to Dag T Hoelseth of the Norwich City Supporters' Club
of Scandinavia for the following information:
Arne Erlandsen arrived in Lillestroem SK (the Norwegian Canaries)
in 1979 and played 2-3 seasons there. In December 1981, he came
to Norwich City on trial. Ken Brown did describe him in the matchday
programme for the 28th December 1981 clash with Luton Town as
"a midfield player who likes scoring goals" but for one reason
or another was not offered a contract.
Arne then spent 2-3 seasons for the Swedish side Djurgaarden,
then returned to Lillestroem where he played several seasons.
Later he joined Stroemsgodset IF (Drammen) where he won a cup
final medal vs. Rosenborg in 1991. He returned for a third spell
with Lillestroem SK soon after, but got injured and had to retire.
Since then, he has been on the staff of Lillestroem where he progressed
to become Head Coach. In addition to his coaching career, Arne
continued playing with Flisbyen and then in June 2000, he signed
for 3rd Division side Volla.
In November 2004, Arne joined IFk Gothenberg as coach where he
remained until September 2006.
On November 13, 2006 Erlandsen was hired as head coach of Ham-Kam
(Norwegian side) but was fired in June 2009.
In the middle of the 2010 season Erlandsen was appointet by Ull/Kisa
as their new coach. He saved the club from relegation to thr Norwegian
Third Division and decided to sign for another year. 2011 was
a remarkable year for both Arne Erlandsen and Ull/Kisa. The Jessheim-club
were promoted to the Adeccoligaen (Norwegian First Division) for
the first time in their history
