Morten Moldskred (born 13 June 1980) is a Norwegian football player who currently plays for Finnsnes IL. He plays as a midfielder or forward.

Club career[edit]

Early years[edit]

Moldskred started his career in Hødd from Ulsteinvik, where he stayed until the 2001 season when he was sold to Moss. In 2002 Moss was promoted to the Norwegian Premier League where he played in 11 games, scoring one goal. Moss were relegated the same year.

Aalesund and Haugesund[edit]

After the 2002 season Moldskred was sold to Aalesund who had been promoted to the top-flight. He played in all games, scoring 4 goals in the process, but for the second time in a row, he suffered the experience of being relegated. In 2004 he had his finest season so far in his career, notching up 15 goals in 29 appearances in Adeccoligaen, helping Aalesund to another promotion. He only managed 1 goal in 24 games the following season, going through another relegation from the elite group of clubs.

He was sold to Haugesund before the 2006 season, but suffered a cruciate ligament injury right after signing, and did not play any games.

Tromsø[edit]

Halfway through the 2006 season, Premier League side Tromsø picked him up on a three-year deal.[1] His former coach at Aalesund, Ivar Morten Normark was coach at the time. After the injury he got while at Haugesund, it was expected that he was going to be out for the rest of the season, but amazingly he managed to make his debut on 30 July 2006. He only played three games before another injury definitely held him back for rest of the season.

After a difficult start at Tromsø I.L. with much time on the sideline and frequent injuries, Moldskred finally got his breakthrough and earned a place as forward in the regular starting line-up in the summer of 2007. After the departure of veteran and club-legend Ole Martin Årst in a mid-season transfer to Start. Moldskred finished the season in style and ended up the club top-scorer with 12 goals, including three in the final game of the season against the champions Brann.

Another injury set him back a bit during pre season in 2008, but after a slow start, he ended up scoring 10 goals in 21 games, helping Tromsø to a surprising bronze medal in the league.

Rosenborg[edit]

On 7 January 2010 Rosenborg and Tromsø came to agreement over a transfer fee and Moldskred signed under for Norwegian powerhouse Rosenborg a few days later.

Moldskred scored his first goal for Rosenborg on 13 May 2010 in the first round of the Norwegian Football Cup against 3rd division side Stjørdals/Blink.

He scored his first league goal for Rosenborg on 25 July 2010 against Stabæk in a 2–1 victory for Rosenborg, scoring the winner goal in injury time at Telenor Arena.

AGF[edit]

On 26 January 2012 Moldskred signed with the Danish club AGF Århus.[2]

Tromsø[edit]

On 31 January 2013 he signed with Tromsø IL.
