Squad Number: 6
Position: Right Half
Date of Birth: Monday, December 22, 1941

Height: 5' 11

Arrived at Pittodrie from Danish club Esbjerg where he had played as an amateur and initially struggled to make an impact. The Scandinavian invasion of Scotland was to prove a popular source of talent for Scottish clubs and none personified the success of the strategy more than Jens. After new boss Eddie Turnbull took over, Petersen began to make his mark at Pittodrie, and Jens developed in to a top-drawer defender. Played for the Dons in the 1967 Cup Final, and was appointed captain the following season. Left Aberdeen in 1970, after the emergence of Martin Buchan. Died: Esbjerg, 8th March 2012
