Dutch football cup, Jodan Boys amateurs defeat professionals


This 25 October 2015 video from Deventer city in the Netherlands shows local Premier League professional team Go Ahead Eagles losing their cup match against Gouda city amateurs Jodan Boys one goal to two.

After the first goal by Go Ahead Eagles, Levi Marengo (born in Suriname) equalized with a free kick. Just before the end of the match, a header by (cinema worker) Roald Heerkens meant that Jodan Boys won the match.

Yesterday, today evening and tomorrow evening are the second round of the Dutch football cup. Winning teams are included in the last 16 teams in the third round.

A thousand Jodan Boys supporters had traveled in over ten buses with their team from Gouda to Deventer and were very happy with the result. When the team came back in Gouda, hundreds of other supporters welcomed them at the Jodan Boys ground.

This video is about Jodan Boys players celebrating after the match, with the trainer and Roald Heerkens being interviewed.

Before the match, Jodan Boys club official Maarten Westerduin had expected that he would be satisfied if the ‘inevitable’ Go Ahead Eagles victory would be less than ten goals against zero.

This is only the third time ever in Dutch football cup history that an amateur team has won an away match against an Eredivisie (Premier League) team without needing extra time.

Another amateur club is VVSB from Noordwijkerhout village. Last year, this club with their purple and yellow colours very surprisingly were one of four clubs reaching the semi finals. Yesterday, VVSB reached the last sixteen by beating fellow amateurs Katwijk three goals to zero.

This is a video about that match yesterday in Noordwijkerhout.

There are at least four amateur clubs among the last sixteen, as ASWH beat fellow amateurs Spakenburg in an away match three goals against two in extra time.

And at 20:00 tonight, IJsselmeervogels (another amateur club with a history of beating professionals) will play at home in Spakenburg against fellow amateurs HFC from Haarlem, the oldest football club in the Netherlands, founded in 1879. One of these two will be among the last sixteen teams.

This video is a song of IJsselmeervogels; produced by Dutch rock musician Peter Koelewijn.

This video is another IJsselmeervogels song.

Tonight at 18:30, the amateurs of Kozakken Boys will play at home in Werkendam against Ajax Amsterdam. Will a fifth amateur team reach the last sixteen?

Tonight in Almelo, the Heracles Premier League professionals will play against the amateurs of UNA from Veldhoven village. A sixth amateur team among the last sixteen? Well, UNA and some others are ‘second division’, semi-professional. But the second division (re-)started only this year; before that they were amateurs.

Another surprise was that Sparta Rotterdam knocked PSV Eindhoven out of the cup competition by winning three goals against one. They are both Premier League teams; but PSV are last season’s champions.

This video shows Sparta, in the red-white striped shirts, winning this match in Rotterdam.
