"A touch is a touch, even a bad one" - Bert-Jan Heijmans - The dutchUK football school

Dutch UK Football School

Dutchman, Bert-Jan Heijmans, founded the dutchUK football school (DUFS) in the North East of England in 2002. Bert-Jan had been a successful player and coach in Holland and when he moved to England he found that the football cultures were very different. What he saw was a lot of good raw talent, but at grass roots level these players were not getting the education and development they deserved. Over a number of years Bert-Jan devised a plan of how to bring the more positive aspects of both football cultures together to benefit youth football in England and from that the dutchUK football school (DUFS) was born.
