Almost an entire life with St. Pauli: You‘ll never walk alone, Svend!

Svend Brodersen has spent almost all his life at FC St. Pauli, having joined the Boys in Brown at the tender age of four. It's exciting to see a person grow up with a club, and thus all the harder to say goodbye when we go our separate ways in summer. Svend, we wish you lots of luck and all the best for your future career!
Brodersen left the club for two spells at local amateur outfit Eimsbütteler TV before returning to the Millerntor in 2010 and proceeding to rise through the youth academy ranks. In the process, the talented young keeper caught the eye not only of the club officials, who handed him his first professional contract, but also the national associations.
Schredder, as he known at St. Pauli, had one of his greatest experiences at the 2017 U-20 World Cup in South Korea. Under coach Guido Streichsbier, Brodersen came into the team for two group games and the Round of 16 tie, where Germany were eventually eliminated by Zambia after extra-time.
The 24-year-old made a total of 80 Regionalliga appearances for the Under-23s, proving a key factor over the years. In the season just ended, he came into the senior side in a thankless situation and was in goal when the turnaround was achieved at Würzburg. Nevertheless, six first-team appearances in six years was not what he had hoped for, of course.
Svend, we will follow your path wherever it takes you in the years to come and are keeping our fingers crossed for you to make the next step in your career. All the very best for your professional and personal future!
