MAGNOLIA, Texas -- The Texas Dutch Lions FC have opened Tryout registration for the club's Men’s USL PRO/PDL, Men’s Super 20, and Women’s team. Tryouts for the Dutch Lions' Women’s team will be held on December 14, with the tryouts for the Men’s USL PRO/PDL and Men’s Super 20 tryouts will be held on December 15. Scouts from USL PRO's Dayton Dutch Lions will also be on hand to evaluate talent for the upcoming 2013 season.
In the club's inaugural season in the PDL, the Dutch Lions finished fourth in the Mid South Division. With great signings such as former PSV Eindhoven player, and Finnish international (99 caps) Joonas Kolkka, and midfielder and last season’s captain Sjaak Polak (former FC Twente, played over 400 games in the Dutch Premier League), the club achieved solid success as a first-year club against opponents such as the Austin Aztex, Laredo Heat and El Paso Patriots.
The PDL club is led by Coach Robert Maaskant, who previously led Wisla Krakow to the Polish championship in 2011 and a berth in the prestigious UEFA Champions League. With his assistance, Dutch Lions striker Furghill Zeldenrust (14 games, 6 goals) got the unique opportunity to practice with the Dutch Premier League team RKC Waalwijk. After one week of training he earned a contract for the 2012/2013 season, going from the PDL to the highest level in The Netherlands in just one summer.
