Our friends at NFC Masters Football are recruiting!

NFC has +35 and a +45 teams that are currently looking for new players. Both teams are international selections, with some of the classiest has-beens and could-have-beens you can find in Amsterdam.

We’re a friendly group off the field, but some of the old competitiveness still sneaks out when we strap on the boots and step onto the field – we all still love the beautiful game. We play a 7 x7 format on a half-sized field, with games or friendlies most weeks in Autumn and Spring, usually followed by a quiet beer afterwards.

If this sounds like you, or someone you know, or even if you just want a good excuse to get out of the house one night each week, please contact the team leaders:

45+ Justin Sherrard: or Stephen Huyton:

35+ Jacques D’Arrigo:
