Jørgen Ravn, alternatively spelled Jørn Ravn, (3 June 1940 – 4 June 2015) was a Danish football player.

Club career[edit]

He played as an amateur for Kjøbenhavns Boldklub (KB) in Denmark, and became topscorer in the 1st Division in 1961 and 1964.[1] He moved abroad to play professionally for Aberdeen in Scotland in 1965,[2] after being signed by Tommy Pearson alongside compatriots Jens Petersen and Leif Mortensen.[3]

One and a half years later he returned to his native country.[1] After a two years penalty for having played as a professional (mandatory in these years' Danish football), he continued to play for KB some years.

International career[edit]

He got 10 caps and scored five goals for the Denmark national under-21 football team. He also played once for his country's B-squad.

Personal life and death[edit]

Married to Inger, Ravn worked for over 25 years for Tuborg. He died on 4 June 2015, one day after his 75th birthday.[1]
