One minutes silence at tomorrow’s friendly

The Northside.nl was asked by a supporter if it was possible to organise some sort of tribute to those who lost their lives on the MH17 plane disaster last week., Ed of course got straight onto this.

After consultation with the club, KNVB, HVV Laakkwartier and the Turkish opponents Konyaspor’ it has been decided that this a great initiative. It will give people the chance to express their feelings for the 298 victims whose lives ended so tragically. The people of The Hague can share their grief.

Just before the 17th minute, the speaker will announce that the minute’s silence is about to be observed. Everyone hopes that everybody will respect the silence.

Northside.nl wishes to thank evrybody for their cooperation with this.

Safety nets behind the goal of Lex Schoenmaker stand

From this coming season there will be a safety net behind the goal at the end of the Lex Schoenmaker/family stand. Using this net makes it easire during training to collect the wayward balls that end up bouncing around in the seats.

During the games these nets will help to protect the young children and disabled supporters, as often these fans have been hit by hard shots. Another advantage is that the seats will now remain intact as often the plastic seats get damaged when hit by hard shoAfterts.

In consultation with supporters, it has been decided to take down the nets at the end of the Aad Mansveld stand, in front of Vak (area) G.

Beerensteyn get her recognition

After a season plagued with serious injuries ADO ladies Lineth Beerensteyn has still managed to be selected for the Orange under 19 squad for the European championships in Norway.

One of my favourite ADO ladies players of the last two seasons, for one so young she is so powerful, works hard and is a real fighter full of skill. Really hoping she has a great tournament, she deserves is and the recognition she is getting.
