Dutch Men’s B, playing in the 4th Division, had a good 2016-2017 season.
As usual the team had some changes: 3 players left or had long term injuries and 2 players were added. At the end of the season another player joined so overall the team was stable where it comes to total number (18). Same applies to the quality, new joiners had different levels of experience so all-in-all the level remained the same. The team has a good mix of seasoned and young players. The turnout was good, most of the games the team had enough players on the pitch. In some occasions additional players had to be sought, mainly as a result of long holiday weekends or due to the maintenance of the HV pitches which resulted in games being scheduled on weekdays. The results improved vs last season: men's B finished the first part of the season well at the 6th position in the ranking, out of 12, thereby qualifying for the play-offs. The play-offs brought another 4 points adding up to a total of 22 points (7 victories, 1 draw) and an overall 6th position, a good achievement. The team has a good atmosphere evidenced by a high turnout at socials, e.g. drinks at Mokum. For next season we have one leaver and a possible transfer of one player to the A's. Bas Fransen will take over the captain role.
Congrats to Bertrand who hit the top scorers list in the 2nd round.
See you next season for more social fun.
