Research and Dutch cricket

The above is a two day research of Dutch football clubs and their ever changing names.

If there are any errors, due to my misinterpreting Dutch, I'm open to extra input. Just send a correction to us. Any changes will be credited to the poster.

What amazed me while researching this, was the number of amateur clubs that were set up as cricket or rugby clubs initially. It seems football was an after thought. What is more amazing is that the Dutch are still playing it!

I've cross referenced as much as possible and added links to the new club website where possible. Many thanks goes to the RSSSF Archive, which was an invaluable source of information whenever an insolvable fact was needed. If you need to find a football answer, it will be on there somewhere.
