DAVID SMITH - Thursday, April 21, 2011
After nearly a full season searching for a new club, defender Euan Holden has returned to the Danish First Division to finish the season with FC Hjørring.

Holden had spent much of the 2009-10 season with fellow First Division club Vejle BK, however injuries severely limited him during his time with the team, with both parties ultimately deciding to part ways at the completion of the term.

After a number of trials throughout the United Kingdom in recent months with teams such as Leeds United and St. Mirren, the Scottish-born American impressed struggling Danish First Division club FC Hjørring enough to garner a contract as they hope to bolster their lineup headed into the final crunch of the season.

"FC Hjørring has signed a contract until the summer with Euan Holden, who has been on trial with the team for the last week," the team announced through their website.

"Euan Holden [...] is a very versatile player who can play both left back and central defense. He has been a nice addition to the training, and we want our squad to be as strong as possible for the last push of the season. "

Hjørring just made the jump up to the second level of Danish soccer after last season for the first time in team history, and is currently locked in a battle for their survival in the division.

They are currently three points out of the drop zone with a game in hand over most of the teams behind them, however as there is still nearly one-third of the season left to play, their status is anything but confirmed.

It is expected that the 23 year-old defender will immediately contribute to the team, possibly as early as their Thursday-afternoon visit to similarly struggling Hobro IK.

"Hopefully when we get all the papers ready, Euan can be included in the squad tomorrow for the match against Hobro," the announcement concluded.
