Trott Celebrates Promotion with Vejle BK

As the 20222/23 season draws to its conclusion across Europe, there were three West Ham United loanees still in action across another thrilling weekend of football.

Nathan Trott’s success with Vejle BK was undoubtedly the biggest story of the weekend among the trio, as the goalkeeper helped the side claim a 3-1 victory over Næstved, securing the Danish First Division championship!

Promotion back to the Superliga had been already secured at the first attempt, following Vejle’s relegation last season, and a win in Sunday’s clash would be enough to guarantee Trott and his teammate's top spot, and therefore the league title.

Played amidst a festive, celebratory atmosphere at the Vejle Stadium, the home side took the early lead thanks to Miiko Albornoz, who calmly headed in from Arbnor Muçolli’s cross.

Academy of Football graduate Trott found himself untested in the opening 45 minutes, and Vejle grabbed their second finish through Saeid Ezatolahi. The Iranian headed in from a recycled corner, doubling the home side’s advantage.

It was only moments later that Trott was called into action for the first, real save in the match, and it was an outstanding reaction from the 24-year-old to deny Julius Madsen.

Vejle had their third not long after as Mucolli netted, completing a terrific solo run by firing into the far corner.

Næstved, for their part, were determined to at least trouble the hosts. Frederik Christensen would eventually squeeze an effort past Trott, although the shot-stopper would recover to make big saves to deny Andreas Nibe and Tarik Ibrahimagic.

As the full-time whistle blew, the Hammers goalkeeper was heavily involved in the celebrations as Vejle players celebrated their return to the Superliga with their home supporters.

Trott has now made 24 appearances and kept 14 clean sheets in all competitions during his loan spell with Vejle, who have two matches left to play in the Promotion Group before the end of the campaign.
