Formed in 1921 by some young lads during a boring evening in the little village. Today they are well known for their talents and are rated amongst the best clubs in Denmark. Surprisingly they won the Danish league in 1999/2000 for their first time, and even more surprisingly they were relegated the year after. This year they have played on the Danish second level, but it does not seem likely that they will get promoted this season.
