GENERAL INFORMATION ABOUT EIK:
About the club:
The "Egersunds Idretts Klubb" (Egersund Sports Club) is a multi-sports club, where members
also participate in handball and athletics. Altogether the club has close to 1.000 members, with
football being by far the most popular sport.
The club's colours are yellow and black, with the
first team being nicknamed "Tigers" because of the striped shirts and the club's crest.
The club is located in Egersund, a
small town on Norways southwestern coast with around 13.000
inhabitants. The town itself is Norways biggest fishing port, and also has a large wharf with
close to 900 employees.
Our first team was promoted to the second division in 2004 for the first time in eleven years, but were relegated
again after just one season and will start the 2006 season in familiar territory in division 3 (level 4).
The former Northern Ireland international Jimmy Quinn led EIK to the top of the table immediately, but resigned due
to domestic reasons, and EIK slumped to third place at the end of the season. The 2007-season was even more disapointing,
the tigers flirting with relegation for long periods.
As important as our first team is the fact that the club has one or several teams in every
agegroup for both boys and girls from the age of six onwards, playing in different local leagues. In 2007 both
the 14-year old and 15-year old won the County League. Recently teenage brothers Valon and Veton Berisha have raised
much attention after trials at both Chelsea and Manchester City.
The club also has its own clubhouse (See ground section) where
most of our activity is based.
The parent-club is run by an elected board covering all sports, but the annually elected board
of football runs most of its own business.
