Place of Birth:
Martin Andresen was a regular on many Norwegian national youth teams while playing for Moss, Viking and Stab√¶k Fotball from 1995-1999. After the 1999 season, Andresen was sold to Premier League club Wimbledon in a deal worth ¬£1,8 million. But like many of the other Norwegians in the club, his stay became short and unsuccessful. After a short loan spell at Molde, Andresen returned to his motherclub Stab√¶k in 2001, where he proved himself to be one of the best central midfielders in Norway.
After a brilliant 2003 season, where Stab√¶k captured the bronze medals in the Norwegian Premier League, Andresen was loaned out to the Premiership club Blackburn Rovers from February-August 2004, but did not sign a longer deal with the English club. Andresen once again decided to return to Stab√¶k to save the club from relegation from the Norwegian Premier League, but despite that Andresen played even while injured, Stab√¶k could not save their spot in the highest Norwegian league. Andresen, not willing to play in the Adeccoliga, asked to be sold. Many clubs in Norway were interested in the newly appointed national team captain, but the high price scared many away, including the champions Rosenborg. V√•lerenga looked set to capture Andresen just before Christmas 2004, but Brann, with help from local investors signed the midfielder on 23 December 2004.
