Eredivisie pioneer Barbara Lorsheyd back with more experience

After two years at  Telstar and one season at FC Twente, Barbara Lorsheyd returned this summer as an experienced keeper to the club with which she debuted in 2007 as a 16-year-old player in the Eredivisie Women. “I have had seven amazing years here, so ADO  Den Haag is my club.

Of all the pioneers who came into action for the six clubs in the Eredivisie Women ten years ago, there are now no more than ten at the highest level at home or abroad. “I still like the game because I can combine my football with my work as a swimming instructor,” explains Barbara why she stays in goal. Remembering the first Eredivisie season, she still knows how she got used to it as a beginner. “The young girls who are starting now will be learning. The advantage of my 10 years experience is that I know what is expected of you. That’s what you’re trying to give to the youngsters, so they are more free on the pitch.”

When Barbara left the club three years ago, she hoped she could go abroad as a professional. After one season at Telstar, the Swiss club Basel seemed to want her join them. “I ran around and everything was actually sorted, but I did not get the tickets to Switzerland.” I later learned that the club had attracted another keeper at the last moment. After another year Telstar, Barbara was about to hang up her gloves. At the last minute she decided to accept an offer from FC Twente. “Another chance to make a squad for the Dutch national team and also play in the Champions League gave me the chance to find the fun in football.”

At ADO ladies she won one league title and two KNVB cups and in 137 games she kept 46 clean sheets. With the Dutch team she made the pre selection for the European Championships. The fact that she was finally dropped from the tournament did not come as a surprise. “Now that Loes Geurts has left, there is now a place.” It was hard after about one week to start preparing with ADO Den Hag again. “A longer rest would have been fine.”

As a result of injuries and because Nadine Noordam and Victoria Pelova were selected for the under 19 European Championships and the departure of Pia Rijsdijk, meant the preparation of ADO ladies was not ideal. “But missing your players does not matter much,” says Barbara. “On the training pitch you just have to get on with it and if young people train hard they may turn out to be a player that can replace those who are unavailable. If you look at our pre-season matches, we have made a lot of progress and picked up the young talent quickly. At least I see good development and you have to aim for the top play-offs.”

ADO ladies draw their opening game

ADO ladies open their season with a game against PEC Zwolle. It was looking as though ADO would be starting with a win. Yet the visitors stole a point in the ninety fourth minute of the game.

PEC started the stronger and for ten minutes were in charge of the midfield. ADO were coming down the wings, but Zwolle looked confident on the ball. Yet their confidence became their downfall. In the seventeenth minute, they again tried to play the ball out of defence using fast, tight passing, this time it backfired.  Keeper Nadja Olthuis tripped and gave the ball away, the ball came to Suzanne Admiraal, who had time and space to fire home ADO ladies first goal of the campaign, 1-0.

Once in front ADO took over the game, on more than one occasion ADO players found themselves in front of the goal with time, yet their efforts were well blocked by the Zwolle keeper, chances that would cost ADO later.

There was heavy rain during the first half, but in the second, the heavens really opened up. It was ADO who dealt with the conditions better and it was they who scored again. On the hour, Nance van der Meer played a long ball forward, brilliantly finding Carmen Simonis. She raced in on goal, could have shot, but instead played the ball into the area for Victoria Pelova. As she was about to shoot, she was barged in the back and a penalty was awarded. Simonis firing the spot kick home to the right of the keeper, 2-0.

ADO missed further chances, the best just going over the bar, it looked comfortable for ADO, but Zwolle were still up for the fight. In the seventieth minute they pulled a goal back. Babiche Roof beating Barbara Lorsheyd in the ADO goal, who was made captain on her return to the club, 2-1.

Zwolle could sense ADO were nervous and pressed for the all important equaliser. An injury lead to the assistant referee showing there would be an additional four minutes of extra time and in the final minute, Shanel Smid managed to sweep the ball into the far  corner, leaving Lorsheyd helpless, 2-2.

ADO looked so downhearted, They kicked off and the final whistle blew. A disappointing end to the night, but they will learn from it and improve.

Attendance: 405

ADO games coming up this weekend

After the International break, ADO will be looking to start afresh after their disappointing start to the season. From three games they have zero points and scored just the one goal.

Saturday’s game at Willem II offers ADO the chance to get off the mark and give themselves a confidence boost as the following week, they will play their biggest game of the season, at home to Ajax.


The ADO ladies will start their season with a home game against PEC Zwolle on Friday night.

The new squad looks exciting and free flowing. So get yourselves to the Cars Jeans stadium and support the ladies. It’s always a fun, friendly atmosphere.


ADO ladies start their season this coming Friday

This coming Friday night. ADO ladies will be kicking off their season with a home game against PEC Zwolle in the Cars Jeans Stadium. Kick-off at 19:30. Be there at the start of their season and support them throughout.

There have been many changes to the squad since last season. The opening pre-season friendlies didn’t see good results, but the more they played together, the better they got. The last three games saw them scoring eight goals and concede three.

They have lost their main goal threat in Pia Rijsdijk, but they have strengthened well in midfield. Goals have been spread throughout the team, which means even with the occasional injury, the team are not reliant on one main goal scorer.

So please join us in the Cars Jeans stadium this Friday night. It’s a cheap night out and the atmosphere is really very friendly and a lot of fun. If you go and enjoy it and want to see more, here are the rest of the home fixtures for ADO ladies.

They train hard at their sport at a professional level in addition to their studies or work, and I would like to contribute to that. I think everybody has been able to see how beautiful women’s football can be in the last month.”

In addition to exposure, the sponsor also has the opportunity to invite friends to the home games of the ADO ladies in the Sky Lounge and to attend Un Momento d’ADO in the Cars Jeans Stadium.

Richard de Lange, Commercial Manager of ADO ladies was obviously in a good mood with the new sponsor: “It is a great Westlands company that closely fits the values of ADO ladies: Hardworking, passionate and leading in the region. We are confident that we will be able to provide the perfect partnership for the next three years.”
