"The photo is of the Ferntree Gully soccer team that played in the first division of the Victorian Soccer League in Australia, 1972. I am second from the left, kneeling. Soccer was a big part of my life for many years. My father was my coach as a junior; he played at the highest level in the Netherland, and after we immigrated in 1953, he played the highest level in Melbourne."
