Amsterdam welcome new faces for 2022/23 season

Robbert Kemperman and Boris Burkhardt lined out for AH&BC Amsterdam last week for the first time since their summer moves to the club in a friendly fixture against HGC.

Burkhardt was among the goals, scoring a drag-flick on his return to the club following a couple of strong seasons with hdm. While in the Hague, the striker completed his PhD while also becoming the Promotion Class top scorer with 26 goals along with 29 indoor goals.

He previously played with Amsterdam between 2016 and 2020, playing in the EHL in 2017 and 2019. 

Amsterdam coach Alexander Cox is delighted to have the 25-year-old on board, describing him as: “A good reinforcement for the short and long term, partly due to his age. He has developed very well in recent years. A striker who is strong on the ball, has scoring ability and a good corner.” 

The other addition is defender Siem Schoenaker who makes the switch from neighboring club Hurley: 

The 24-year-old has just recovered from a serious cruciate ligament injury while his club endured relegation from the Hoofdklasse in recent years.

“As a defender, Siem has a lot of hockey skills,” Cox said of the signing. “He is able to find the right solutions under pressure. Due to his ambition and age, he is a nice reinforcement.”
