Edwin van Ankeren (born 13 August 1968) is a Dutch former professional footballer who played as a striker.

Playing career


A journeyman striker, Van Ankeren has played professionally in his native Holland as well as in Italy, France and Norway. He was, however, most successful during his spells with different clubs in Belgium. He only had one season with Dutch club PSV, whom he left for Eendracht Aalst in 1994.[1]

He left Italian side Viterbese in March 2001 after only seven weeks, claiming the club did not pay his wages.[2] After spells in Norway,[3] van Ankeren returned to Holland in 2005 to join newly formed professional club FC Omniworld.[4]

Managerial career

During his spell at Norwegian lower league side Tollnes BK, Van Ankeren already acted as player/assistant coach.[5] In summer 2007, Van Ankeren started his career as full-time coach with Lelystad amateur side Unicum and shared his duties with Michel van Oostrum.[6]

Van Ankeren was named caretaker manager of Almere City after the club disposed of Dick de Boer in September 2012.[7]
