About HC ‘s-Hertogenbosch
European women’s club hockey’s most successful side, they won the first EHL Women’s crown in 2021 having previously won 16 of the last 20 editions of the European Club Cup competition, including a run of 12 successive victories between 2000 and 2011.
Last season, they were runners-up following a dramatic shoot-out defeat at the heads of AH&BC Amsterdam.
Since then, three famous faces have departed with Lidewij Welten moving to Kampong, Margot van Geffen to HGC and Marloes Keetels has retired. Coming in, Brooke Peris arrived from Australia.
A long-term injury to Frédérique Matla has further made for a changeover in key players, giving a platform for young stars to make their name.
Joosje Burg, Rosa Fernig, Emmeliene Oonk, Noor Omrani and Teuntje de Wit are all coming to the fore in a team led by superstars like Josine Koning, Sanne Koolen, Laura Nunnink and Pien Sanders.
It meant a slow start to the Hoofdklasse but they finished off their pre–Christmas schedule with seven wins in succession and they drew with both SCHC and AH&BC Amsterdam in thrilling games in recent weeks.
Matla returned from injury and has scored in her last two games; in the EHL, she has competition’s highest goals per game record with 12 goals in five games.
They are currently in third place in the Hoofdklasse and looking in good shape to once again be part of the playoff picture in the Dutch championship.
