Ex Netherlands World Cup Star Bryan Roy Offers Soccer Clinic at Texas Dutch Lions

Bryan Roy. Remember him?

The ex Dutch internationalist is on his way to Houston over the next couple of days as he pays a visit to PDL side Texas Dutch Lions to hold a couple of clinics and also discuss some coaching techniques.

The former Ajax Amsterdam winger starred for the Netherlands from 1989 - 1995 appearing 32 times and scoring 9 times during that period.

His club career spanned from 1988 where he began with Ajax, playing 126 times and scoring 17 times in a four year term that ended with a UEFA Cup victory before moving to Italy with Foggia for a couple of years at which time he played in the 1994 World Cup in the USA before being knocked out by Brazil 3-2 at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas.

After the World Cup, he made the move to Nottingham Forest for a then record fee of £2.9 million and spent three seasons there before making a final big move to Hertha Berlin for a fee of £1.5 million.

It was an impressive period for Bryan Roy at a time before the Barclays English Premiership was to come to eminence and his soccer experience and skills can now be viewed at The Woodlands, just north of Houston.

On Thursday July 26th and Friday 27th Bryan will hold a soccer clinic for any boys or girls interested in learning some soccer skills from an ex World Cup star. He will also hold a clinic solely for coaches on Thursday evening where youth coaching techniques will be discussed or simple get along for a couple of hours with a Dutch soccer legend.

Thursday 26th 10am -12 noon for kids
Friday 27th 10am - 12 noon for kids

Thursday 26th 7pm - 9pm for coaches


Creekwood Park, The Woodlands
