One of the many talented youngsters on Peterborough's books Helgi spent the summer months on loan in Iceland before returning to London Road where he made his Football League debut when coming on as a late substitute at Bristol City in October. He subsequently featured in several games towards the end of the campaign and will be looking to gain further senior experience in 2001-02. A very talented midfield prospect he has excellent distribution and always seems to have time on the ball. Helgi made his bow at U21 level for Iceland in the friendly with Sweden last August and was a regular in the line-up all season, also making the experimental national squad for the Millenium Cup tournament in January when he made his full international debut from the subs' bench against India.
