Alex Nørlund Andersen (born January 28, 1975) is a Danish professional football player, who plays for Vejle Boldklub in the Danish Superliga. He is an attacking midfielder, and has played six games and scored two goals for the Denmark national under-21 football team.


Nørlund started playing youth football for Jelling IF, before becoming a part of the youth team setup at Vejle Boldklub (VB). He made his debut for VB in a June 1993 game against the Zambian national team, and was called up for the Danish under-21 national team in March 1995. With VB, Nørlund tried to gain promotion for the top-flight Danish Superliga. This was accomplished when the club finished second in the 1995 Danish 1st Division season, with Nørlund and Jesper Søgaard the brightest talents of the team. [Allan Pedersen, "Champagneregn", "Ekstra Bladet", June 12, 1995]

In VB's first season in the Superliga, Nørlund suffered an inflammation in his knee, and spent almost a year in recovery. [Lars Hendel, "Betændt talent", "B.T.", September 13, 1996] He returned in January 1997, and scored a single goal as VB finished runners-up in the 1996-97 season. He was recalled for the Danish under-21 national team in May 1997, and scored two goals in four under-21 national team matches, before becoming too old to be eligible for the team.

Nørlund played a further two seasons at VB, before his contract ran out in the summer 1999. He underwent training sessions with foreign teams Aris Thessaloniki (Greece), Brescia Calcio (Italy) and Grazer AK (Austria), but with no success. ["Alt er gået i vasken for mig", "B.T.", September 6, 1999] He stayed in Denmark, and moved to VB's league rivals Viborg FF on a free transfer in September 1999. He was a part of the Viborg team that won the 2000 Danish Cup, before his Viborg contract ran out in the summer 2001. He trained with English club Walsall F.C. without success in February 2001, ["Slut på engelsk flirt", "De Bergske Blade", February 15, 2001] before moving back to play for VB on a semi-professional contract in July 2001.

As VB were relegated to the Danish 1st Division in the 2001-02 season, Nørlund moved to Superliga club Aarhus GF (AGF). Following less and less playing time for AGF, his contract was mutually terminated in March 2004, [Jesper Engmann, "Alex Nørlund i fri rolle", "Jyllands-Posten", March 16, 2004] and Nørlund moved to his former club Viborg as an amateur player. After three months as an amateur player, Nørlund penned a two-year professional contract with Viborg in June 2004. ["Nu får han penge", "Viborg Stifts Folkeblad", June 14, 2004] He soon found a place in Viborg's starting line-up, and became the natural playmaker of the team. [Dan Philipsen, "Lille mand - stor forvandling", "Jyllands-Posten", November 1, 2004] When VB won promotion for the 2006-07 Superliga season, Nørlund moved back to his childhood club.
