Johan Thorbjørnsen (born 19 August 1983) is a Norwegian football goalkeeper who currently plays for Fyllingsdalen.

Career[edit]

Born in Bergen, he became Norwegian U20 champion with Brann's junior team in 2002. Thorbjørnsen debuted in Tippeligaen on 11 April 2005 against Molde where he kept a clean sheet. During his years in Brann Thorbjørnsen was the second-choice goalkeeper, usually playing in the first rounds of the Norwegian football cup and whenever Håkon Opdal was injured. In 2007 he played three matches when Brann won Tippeligaen.[2]

He was loaned out to Sandefjord in 2008, but experienced some cardiac problems. In 2009, he was only the third choice goalkeeper behind Håkon Opdal and Kenneth Udjus, and expressed a desire to leave Brann.[3]

On 21 November 2009 he signed for Løv-Ham,[4] where he played for two seasons before he ahead of the 2012-season was one of the first players to sign for the new second division club from Bergen, Fyllingsdalen.[2]
