September 2, 3013: India captain Sardar Singh, who led his team to the final of the recent Asia Cup in Malaysia, has signed for 2013 Euro Hockey League champions HC Bloemendaal.

 

The gifted midfielder adds strength to a team that’s rebuilding after the recent retirement of legendary attacker Teun de Nooijer.

 

“The Dutch League is one of the most competitive in the world, so I’m looking forward to honing my skills at the club. There’s a lot to learn,” said the 27-year-old Singh, who represented Delhi Waveriders in the Hero Hockey India League at the start of the year.

 

Bloemendaal President Henry Goeman Borgesiuslaan was quick to praise the signing of Sardar.

 

“Not only does Sardar bring a lot of experience to our squad, but he will inspire the youth of our club with his fame and charisma,” Borgesiuslaan said.

 

As well as Singh, Bloemendaal have also acquired the services of young Belgium internationals Tom Boon and Simon Gougnard.

 

Bloemendaal have not qualified for the upcoming EHL season, but their recent acquisitions have provided a strong boost to their bid to return to the world’s premier club competition.
