Is Gino leaving ADO?

It is mandatory in Holland that by April 1st all contracts with professional players have to be sorted out.

Earlier (before March 1) the option to extend the contract of Aaron Meijers was taken. ADO now have to look at the options to extend the contracts of Roland Alberg , Mike van Duinen , Gianni Zuiverloon , Papito Merencia and currently NAC Breda loaned Rydell Poepon .

ADO Den Haag want the expiring contract of goalkeeper Robert Zwinkels to be extended, currently in talks about a longer stay at the club. .

ADO Den Haag has decided not to renew the expiring contracts of Christian Supusepa and Mike Tros and the keepers Martijn de Zwart and Bas Meeuwissen

For two players it is not clear what will happen. ADO Den Haag club captain Danny Holla is in discussion over his option to stay on.  The big and worrying news is that star goalkeeper Gino Coutinho has indicated to the club that he wants to investigate the possibilities for him away from ADO Den Haag.

Fixtures coming up

Both teams are back in action this week. On Friday night the ADO ladies travel away to Telstar looking to get three points for the fourth game in a row.

On Sunday ADO are at home to PEC Zwolle. If the men can get a win it makes their survival chances look far better than a month ago.

Vote rigging not allowed

Please be aware. I can see the ip adresses of all people who vote for the ADO ladies player of the season award. So making multiple votes can be seen and those will be deleted. Just deleted five votes for one player posted in five minutes. I think it is great that you think this is such an high honour that it is worth trying to rig the vote. Please play fair, otherwise this will be the last season this award will be given. When voting closes on April 2nd. I will be going through all votes to check on any that have sneaked in.

De Goudenregen Bar sponsors ADO ladies trophy

After just announcing the sponsorship of the men’s player of the season trophy by The Hague Online, and that I was seeking a sponsor for the ADO ladies trophy, I soon got a response.

I am very pleased to announce that Marius van der Kleij, owner of my local drinking establishment De Goudenregen bar has offered to sponsor this seasons trophy.

De Goudenregen Bar is already established a very popular dart venue that has a reputation that is spreading nation wide and attracting top players. Marius wants to make this bar the biggest and best darts bar in Holland. As well as darts, they show all the football on multiple screens and the food is of excellent quality. The bar is also a popular place with many expats in the community.
