Former ADO star Sylvia Nooij sadly passed away

Sadly, On Sunday it was announced that former ADO player and trainer passed away on Saturday. The 32 year old suffered a serious epileptic seizure that she did not recover from.

This is a loss that has shocked everyone that new her and her supporters. She was a fighter both on and off the pitch. Strong minded, fair and open to everyone. I had the pleasure to get to know her a little bit more than most of the other players as she was doing her foundation work with young female footballers.

She was part of the team that won the league and cup double in the 2011/2012 season. She had great times at the club and was welcomed back every time. Her commitment to the club and football in general was outstanding.

Off the pitch she was great fun, loud and party going. Everyone warmed to her. So the news of her sudden and untimely passing is hard to swallow. She will be missed by many.

My heartfelt love and best wishes go to her family and friends in this time of sadness. We’ll all miss you Sylvia.. R.I.P. XXXX

ADO ladies Yvette van der Veen to take sabbatical

Yvette van der Veen has chosen to temporarily step back from her football career at ADO ladies. The 23-year-old right back wants to focus on her graduation studies, but will continue to do weekly training with the first selection.

Yvette sees this as the best option: “After five years of focusing on football, I have chosen to take a step back next year. This way I can focus on graduation.” Yvette will say goodbye to the fans at the start of the new season.

ADO for Expats says:

Yvette will be a big miss for ADO ladies. She is a strong fighter and leader on the pitch. Her never say die attitude is what the team will miss. She has been a vital part of the squad for five season. She rarely had a bad game, so reliable. I wish her all the very best for her studies and hopes she will return to ADO Ladies after her break.

Tearful farewell for leaving ADO ladies

After the 1-2 defeat at home to FC Twente on Friday night, several of the ADO ladies and a member of staff were given a great farewell by the club and its supporters.

Emotions started running high during the second half when many substitutions were made, allowing the leaving players to get a standing ovation, and the leaving substitutes to play one more time in the green and yellow shirts of ADO.

After the final whistle, Karin Punt had the microphone and gave everyone a wonderful emotive farewell speech. This had the effect of causing a few to break into floods of tears as they thanked the clubs management and their loyal followers.

First up was trainer Gert-Jan Dupon, a man who had helped ADO to all of their trophy wins, a true inspiration to all involved at the club. Then the ladies started to go and collect their leaving gifts. Jennifer Vreugdenhil, Hélène Heemskerk, Jessie van Leeuwen, Michelle Vrieling, Lindsey Keizerweerd, Mijke Roelfsema and Isa Pothof.

Wishing them all much success with their future endeavors.

ADO ladies lose final game of the season

ADO ladies ended the current season with a 1-2 home defeat to FC Twente. A draw would have seen ADO finish in third place, but fourth is how it finished.

The first half was quiet and quite dull, the atmosphere was still, due to most people sitting on the beaches with 25 degrees of heat, which also meant the players were suffering, so the referee called for a water break midway through the first half.

The visitors took the lead in the fifteenth minute, when a long range free-kick taken by Siri Worm beat Jennifer Vreugdenhil from 25m out.

For the following fifteen minutes FC Twente were the team on top, forcing ADO to defend. Chances came and went, but ADO held out. Then ADO clicked into gear. ADO began to make chances, Lindsey Keizerweerd working well down the right wing. Sadly most of the crosses were being over hit and out of play.

The second half saw FC Twente dominate for a while, but made that domination count, as former ADO star Renate Jansen scored in the fifty sixth minute, to make it 0-2.

ADO then moved up a gear. Keizerweerd went close to pulling a goal back when she was one on one against ADO’s future keeper Barbara Lorsheyd, Lorsheyd being the winner blocking well.

Lorsheyd was replaced by Jade Adan, the substitute pulled of a series of great saves to keep ADO at bay as the hosts piled on the pressure.

ADO got a goal they deserved in the eighty second minute. Marthe van Erk was played into the penalty area, kept her nerve and calmly slotted the ball home, 1-2.

The game fizzled out as many substitutions were made to give departing players the chance to make a final appearance or to say farewell to the fans. Second half was much better than the first as a spectacle, but now that is it, ADO’s season is now over.

ADO ladies last game of the season this Friday

ADO ladies play their final game of the current season against FC Twente. A tough game to end on.

ADO ladies were unlucky to lose at newly crowned league champions Ajax last week, so should be going into this game with confidence. Form ADO goalkeeper Barbara Lorsheyd should be in goal for the visitors and next season she will be back in goal for our ladies once again.

ADO ladies lose at Ajax

Despite a solid, strong performance away at Ajax, ADO ladies could not deny the Amsterdam side from becoming the league champions for the first time.

The home side took the lead in the twelfth minute, as they broke down the left wing, a cross to the far post was headed home by  Inessa Kaagman, 1-0.

After going behind the ADO players picked up the challenge and worked hard to get back on level terms, both Michelle Vrieling and Sharona Tieleman forcing the Ajax keeper into good saves.

In the added minute of the first half ADO got the goal their play deserved. A pass by Nance van der Meer brilliantly found Nadine Noordam, she remained calm and placed the ball in the back of the net.

The second half saw ADO again pushing forward, creating chances, yet Ajax were very capable of striking themselves, forcing ADO keeper Jennifer Vreugdenhil into some great saves.

The ADO keeper had to be substituted die to injury in the eighty fourth minute by Isa Pothof. Pothof also was forced to make some fine saves as the clock counted down. Yet heartbreak for ADO as in the final minute of the game, Marjolijn van de Bighelaar hit the winner for Ajax, a goal that sealed their championship title.
