Recently Liesbeth was interviewed by "The Hockey Family" on a piece on Hong Kong Hockey. Read more at the link below.
"Liesbeth van der Zee, the captain of the Dutch HC spends a bit of time either side of the match talking to me. Originally from the Netherlands (not surprisingly given her name and club), she has been in Hong Kong for three years. She came over for a four month internship and enjoyed it so much she got herself a job at an accountancy firm. The Dutch are one of the smaller clubs in Hong Kong these days, but Liesbeth tells me that it is one of the oldest clubs in the territory, helping to set up the original league. She seems moderately proud of the club’s heritage and culture of friendliness. They don’t have their own club house at this point, but set themselves up as a club that although looks to constantly improve, also wants to be a fun and social set up as well. One of the biggest issues she finds in developing the club is the transient nature of economic migration. Teams within the Dutch club, she tells me, can change dramatically within one or two seasons, thus making consistency and team cohesion harder to come by. The common language within the club is English, due to the varying nationalities. The first team is made up of predominately European looking faces, but she tells me that there are more asian players coming through the reserve teams and that there is a healthy mix at the club."
