The traditional curtain raiser to ADO’s pre-season took place on Saturday between HVV Laakkwartier and ADO Den Haag. The time of kick-off had been moved from 17.00 to 19.00 due to the extreme heat, which would not have been good for the players or supporters.
The teams came out to a great atmosphere. There were star names missing from the ADO team. Mike van Duinen who left ADO to join Fortuna Dusseldorf yesterday and Michiel Kramer, a player rumoured to be off to another club.
The game was a nice and introduction to the season, ADO winning 1-12. Due to the heat, the game was split up to allow water breaks, 3 x 25 minutes. Giovanni Korte was the star man, scoring five goals.
Goals: 5. Ayrton 0-1, 6. Alberg 0-2, 20. Korte 0-3, 21. Alberg 0-4, 25. Korte 0-5, 30. Kristensen 0-6, 43. Houtkoop 0-7, 50. Ayrton 0-8, 55. Ortega 1-8, 62. Korte 1-9, 64. Korte 1-10, 67. Houtkoop 1-11, 69. Korte 1-12.
ADO starting eleven: Hansen; Ebuehi, Zuiverloon, Derijck, Meijers; Kristensen, Ayrton, Alberg, Korte, Duplan, Houtkoop.
