Other notable players include Paul Miller. Skeid played in 1. divisjon in 2009 after a short stint in the 2. divisjon. They finished champions of the Second Group of 2. divisjon in 2008.

2020 seasonEdit

On january 6, Skeid signed Gard Holme as the new head Coach following the relegation from OBOS-ligaen in 2019. Skeid also lost 8 players from the most used starting lineup in 2019 (some signed by other clubs while others hanged up their boots), and due to a strict economy Skeid signed new players from 2. and 3. divisjon.

The season was put on hold at the start of the year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and didn't start until july. When it first started it was with a reduced schedule, with the 14 teams in the division facing each other once, with the top 7 teams going into a Promotion Playoff, while the bottom 7 teams would be going into a Relegation Playoff.

During the season Skeid played home games at 3 different venues due to problematic circumstances regarding the artificial turf at Nordre Åsen. Therefore, Skeid played some home games at Valhall Arena and LSK-Hallen.

Skeid ended the regular sesong on 3.place in the table and therefore qualified for the Promotion Playoff. Skeid ended the playoffs in 2.place and qualified for a double header with Asker. After 1-1 in both games, the last game went to a penalty shootout, and Asker were victorious with the score 4-2, and ended Skeids season.

Many supporters saw the season in total as a success, due to the loss of key players before the season started, the signing of a new head coach and the trouble with the home ground.
