South Melbourne FC is pleased to announce the signing of 26 year old Dutch striker Renco Van Eeken for the 2013 Victorian Premier League season.
Van Eeken or as he’s already been affectionately named around the club ‘RVE’, is a classy left footer who has come to the club directly from the Netherlands, playing for Hardenberg in the 2011-12 season. With his exceptional ball control and pace, as well as his ability to finish, Van Eeken promises to bolster our attacking options for the season ahead.
Upon arriving in Australia, Renco contacted SMFC club officials about a trial with the club and it was after two weeks of impressing at training that coach Peter Tsolakis saw enough to sign him almost immediately.
Speaking to smfc.com.au, SMFC President Leo Athanasakis said “we are delighted to have Renco at South and we are all confident that he will be an asset to the Club”.
We wish Renco all the best for the 2013 season and hope to see him on the scoresheet quite frequently.
