After having played five games for EV Zug and one game for their Swiss League farm team, the EVZ Academy, Andreas Martinsen moves back to his home country.

Andreas Martinsen to continue his career in Norway

As Lillehammer IK from Norway's highest league announces today, the 30-year-old winger has agreed on a one-year deal through to the 2020-21 season. "It was not my primary plan, but I'm very happy that it developed like this. We live here, I have many relationships here, and I know everyone in the club very well," he explains.

Martinsen, who went through Lillehammer's youth organization, joined EV Zug's organization at the end of January 2020 following a four-and-a-half year stint in North America. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, however, the forward only only suited up in five games for the National League team, recording one goal. He also suited up in one game for the EVZ Academy.
