ADO away on Saturday

After a disappointing week for ADO Den Haag, the disappointing loss to Excelsior own and then shock news that the KNVB had after all, decided to ban central defender Tommie Beugelsdijk for four matches. ADO need to pull themselves together as they take the long journey to face VVV Venlo. Managed by popular former ADO manager Maurice Steijn.

Beugelsdijk banned for four matches

ADO Den Haag must do without Tom Beugelsdijk for the next four games. The defender was suspended for four matches by the committee of appeal of the KNVB yesterday. Beugelsdijk gets the suspension due to an alleged elbow to the face of defender Mari in the final phase of the game at NAC Breda.

Initially, Beugelsdijk and ADO had successfully appealed against the proposed punishment  of four matches. The KNVB disciplinary committee released the defender because the prosecutor was unable to provide the two bits of  evidence to prove their case..

Besides the TV images, there was a strong statement from one of the persons involved.

Beugelsdijk now has to watch from the stands for four matches after Tuesday’s hearing. The public prosecutor called NAC player Mari as a witness. His statement was enough for the Appeals Committee to deem it sufficient for a conviction of Beugelsdijk. For the elbow he gets three matches and an outstanding conditional penalty of a match is added.

Beugelsdijk misses the matches against VVV Venlo, PEC Zwolle, Feyenoord and Heracles Almelo.

Great win for ADO ladies at Heerenveen

On Friday night ADO ladies gained an excellent three points at sc Heerenveen. The first half was a goalless affair. Despite that scoreline ADO could have been three goals ahead. Barbara Lorsheyd in the ADO goal was also called upon to make a couple of great saves.

The second half saw ADO’s goal attempts hit the back of the net. It looked as though it was going to be a frustrating night until the fifty fourth  minute when Nadine Noordam broke the deadlock. Just three minutes later Carmen Simonis made it 0-2. In the final minute Chasity Grant made it 0-3. Sadly ADO could not keep a clean sheet, as deep into stoppage time Fenna Kalma made it 1-3.

ADO ladies: Barbara Lorsheyd ©; Allyssa Daal, Marthe van Erk, Lauren Delleman, Priscilla Mesker; Romy Speelman (79. Chasity Grant), Nadine Noordam, Sharona Tieleman; Nance van der Meer (74. Shanique Dessing), Carmen Simonis, Victoria Pelova

ADO games coming up

After the International break, ADO Den Haag return to action with a home game against Excelsior of Rotterdam. ADO have taken 10 points from their last four games. The halves are usually different, the second period usually the more attacking. If they can get the momentum from the start, ADO could see themselves climbing further up the league table.

ADO ladies are starting to play, the young side and now gelling together as a unit. This Friday they travel away to take on sc Heerenveen. This new young ADO team are looking exciting and worth following.

ADO fans get the chance to say farewell to Jansen and Schaken

Prior to the ADO Den Haag v Excelsior game this coming Sunday, the fans can say goodbye to Kevin Jansen and Ruben Schaken. Jansen went to NEC Nijmegen this summer. Schaken retired from football.

In 2012 Jansen joined ADO from Excelsior. The midfielder played 31 tmes in his first season. In the 2013/2014 season, Jansen had to watch from the stands because of a torn cruciate ligament suffered at NAC Bread. The same happened to him in November last year. Between the injuries, Jansen proved to be a very reliable midfielder, who was especially valuable in the 2015/2016 season with five goals in 28 games. In total, Jansen played 98 league games (eight goals) and four cup games. With that he belongs to the ADO Den Haag 100 Club.

Schaken came to ADO from Inter Baku from Azerbaijan in 2015. Prior to that he had earned his money at Cambuur Leeuwarden, BV Veendam, VVV-Venlo and Feyenoord. At ADO, Schaken regularly played, although he was not always in the starting eleven. The Amsterdammer played 54 Eredivisie games (three goals) and two cup games.
