Jennifer Vreugdenhil, Jessie van Leeuwen, Hélène Heemskerk and Michelle Vrieling will no longer be playing afor ADO ladies next season. All four players have decided to focus on their own future careers outside of football.
Jennifer Vreugdenhil addresses the application procedure in defense. The 22-year-old goalkeeper played over six seasons at ADO ladies, winning a championship and three cups. She also won the European Championships with the Dutch under 19’s.
Jessie van Leeuwen was 15 years old when she left RKAVV to join ADO ladies. She is already in her fifth season: “ADO ladies will always stay in my heart, but I want to focus on my future career.” Currently, Jessie is employed at ID College.
Hélène Heemskerk can no longer combine her future plans with top sport. In addition to her work, she will follow the accelerated part-time training PABO: “After seven seasons at the highest level, it is time for me to make other choices. Following the bankruptcy of the FC Utrecht Women in January 2014, I switched directly to ADO ladies where I was received with open arms. With the strong organization for women’s football and the good facilities I’ve had a lot of good times with ADO. For me, after so many years, it has come time to choose my professional career.”
Michelle Vrieling hopes to finish her Master of Intervention Criminology at the VU in December. After that, she will probably leave for India for a longer period to continue the week she started in April. “I look forward to fore-filling my ambitions in my career. Despite that fact, I of course will be missing football at ADO ladies. I played five seasons here and learned a lot, plus having a lot of fun. ADO feels like my second family. So I’m sure to continue to follow them!” Said Michelle Vrieling.
ADO ladies thanks these girls for their great efforts they have shown in the past few years and wish them great success with their future careers away from football.
