Håvard Storbæk (born 5 May 1986) is a Norwegian football midfielder who currently plays for Sandefjord. He has previously played for Nybergsund, FK Haugesund and Odd. He is the cousin of Jarl-André Storbæk.

Career[edit]

Storbæk was born in Elverum[1] and grew up in Ljørdalen in Trysil, near the Swedish border, and played football for Østre Trysil and Trysil before he joined Nybergsund IL-Trysil, where he played for five seasons.[2] In his first season for Nybergsund IL-Trysil he played 25 matches and scored 16 goals.

In his second season for Nybergsund IL, Storbæk played 25 matches and scored 7 goals in the First Division.[1] Odd Grenland's head coach Dag-Eilev Fagermo wanted to sign Storbæk after his performance in the match between Nybergsund and Odd Grenland on 29 June 2008, where Storbæk scored a goal.[3] Storbæk rejected offers from HamKam and Strømsgodset and signed a two-year contract with Odd Grenland on 14 July 2008,[4] and joined the club who had won promotion to Tippeligaen after the season.

Storbæk's first match for Odd Grenland was a friendly match against Lyn on 23 January 2009 that ended in a 1–1 draw, he was in the starting line-up but was substituted after 73 minutes for Magnus Lekven.[5] Storbæk made his debut in Tippeligaen in Odd Grenland's first match of the 2009 season, he came on as a substitute for Simen Brenne after 87 minutes when Odd lost 3–0 against Viking.[1] In the team's first home game of the season, Storbæk scored the 2–0 goal against Sandefjord.[6]

Storbæk did not want to sign a new contract with Odd Grenland, and could leave the club after the 2011-season as a free agent. In October 2011, FK Haugesund announced that they had signed a three-year contract with Storbæk starting from January 2012.[7]
