The cantus will consist of many of your favourite canteen songs and of course plenty of beers! More information about the price and location will follow soon.

    • Lustrum Gala (03-12)

How interesting will it be to see our crazy ‘lompe’ soccer fanatics change their safe and comfortable environment of the Hondsheuvels canteen, into a ballroom? So, dress up and enjoy an extravagant evening with your fellow teammates! The gala will close off the 11th lustrum celebrations of our beloved club, be there to not miss out on elegant outfits, dancing to an actual band (although we do love our own lustrumband: the Vlamtosti’s), and foremost, unlimited drinks!

Afterwards the party will move to the ballroom, where we will dance and drink the night away. You are more than welcome to bring a +1 to this event.

There is also the possibility to buy limited edition Lustrum merchandise! So get your Pusphaira socks, scarf or underwear now before it is too late..

And last but not least: you can claim a spot on the first official BoemBoemBoets table of Pusphaira, which will come into the canteen soon. For only 11,- euros you become a “Friend of Pusphaira” and you get a circle with your picture and/or name on it, while also sponsoring this great Lustrum!

5×5 tournament
geplaatst door WebCie

It’s time for one of the best events of the season, the 5×5 tournament. As it stands now, the tournament can take place on Friday July 2!

This year the tournament set up will be a bit different than you are used to, as it will only be held for Pusphaira members. This is because there are still various guidelines that we must adhere to.
Depending on the developments regarding the Corona measures, the final set-up can still change, but we will inform you about this in time.

The focus is therefore on the internal bonding between the members of Pusphaira to celebrate the end of the season. That is why registration will take place individually and the committee will make the team classification. We strive to place you in a team with 1 to 2 people according to your preference, but we cannot guarantee this.

There is also the possibility to enjoy a tasty pizza which can serve as a base for the beers that will flow. You can indicate your preferred pizza when registering. The costs for this are still unknown, but will be about €6,-.

Date and time: July 2, 2021 from 16:30h
Location: Sportspark, the Hondsheuvels
Contact us: pusphaira5x5@hotmail.com
Event will be cash free!

Trainers update
geplaatst door Bestuur

The contract of Ferry Smith, the men’s goalkeeper coach, and Teun Bosch, the women’s head coach, have been extended by one year! In addition, Twan van Helvert, trainer of P2, and Leontien Cremers, the women’s goalkeeper coach, will also stay next season. Earlier it was announced that Daan Guldemond will also be head coach of the men’s selection next year.

Ferry Smith has been a great asset to the club for years. Next year will be Ferry’s fifth year at Pusphaira. The board and the keepers of the selection are very satisfied with Ferry and are very happy with the extension of his contract. An experienced goalkeeper coach gives the goalkeepers the important extra skills they need.

Teun Bosch will also continue to train and coach ladies 1 next year. Next year will be his seventh year as a coach at the club, but before that he was also a member of Pusphaira. Ladies 1 played third division this season, after the ladies were promoted last season. In addition to his trainer qualities, he also has a lot of experience within Pusphaira and that has many advantages.

Twan is the newest addition to the club, as next year will be his 2nd year at Pusphaira. Training a student team was new to him, but he really enjoys it. The 2nd team is also very satisfied with Twan, as he is always cheerful and gives good training. The cooperation between him and Daan goes smoothly and together we create a good men’s selection.

Finally, we arrived at Leontien, the ladies’ goalkeeper coach. Like Teun, she has been known to Pusphaira for some time. She used to be the goalkeeper of the 1st women’s team, but due to injuries she had to stop playing football. Fortunately, she enjoys training and has the opportunity to pass on all her keeper secrets. In addition, Leontien can be found in various committees where she actively participates and helps the club even more.

We can train again!
geplaatst door Bestuur

After the announced relaxation of the cabinet, students (who are younger than 27 years) can train in a team again from 3 March! During these training sessions there is no longer a need to keep a meter and a half distance from each other. However, this must still be done before the start of the training and after the training. For now, each team can train once a week for 90 minutes. This is due to the limited capacity at the sports park in connection with the curfew. In addition, other (indoor) sports associations will also make use of the sports park. In order for everything to run smoothly, it is important that everyone reads the protocol carefully!
