Jan Fuglset (born 1 October 1945) is a former professional football player. Fuglset is known as one of the leading goal-scorers in Norwegian top division with 109 goals from 1967-1982.[1] He is the brother of Tor Fuglset.

Club career[edit]

Fuglset started his career in his hometown-club Molde FK. From 1967 to 1972 he played for Fredrikstad FK, while he took a teacher-education in Halden. In 1971 he became top goal scorer in First Division with 17 goals.[2] In 93 top league matches for Fredrikstad, he scored 52 goals.

In 1973, he was back in Molde, and played for Molde FK until he retired from football in 1982. He was top scorer in Molde FK and Fredrikstad FK. In the final game of the 1976 league season, he scored all goals in a 6-0 drubbing of Strømsgodset IF, which saved his club from relegation, and relegated the opposition instead. Six goals in one game is still the record for the Norwegian top league. The six goals made him top goal scorer in 1976 with 17 goals.[3][2]

International career[edit]

Jan Fuglset was capped 20 times for Norway, scoring six goals. He made his debut against Finland on 17 June 1970. His first two international goals came in his third national match against Iceland, in a Friendly match on 26 May 1971, a game Norway won 3-1. His last international appearance was against Yugoslavia on 30 October 1974.[4]
