Word spread in Velsen-Zuid: Andries Jonker adds another year as Telstar’s Coach and Technical Director. The club just announced this. Captain Glenor Plate will still be associated with White Lions for much longer.
Telstar and Jonker reached an agreement to extend the validity of the connection by one year. For a long time he remained silent about Juncker’s contract extension. The coach admitted that he had already spoken to the club, but had not hinted much at the intentions. In the column “Are you staying or leaving?” , Which was set up especially due to speculation, Juncker replied in most cases that he would “be sitting around the table soon.” It has now happened.
“With the aura and the doubts that accompany it, we naturally had to take a closer look at the overall picture,” Juncker says. “Then I see that we have made important strides in the sports organization. The U21 team is women and men, and next season will start with our new youth teams. These are developments that show that we are all on the right track. Gone, but there are also a lot of challenges ahead of us.”

General Manager Peter de Ward is also satisfied with the contract extension. “When I think of Andries, I think of a loyal and professional player. In an unprecedented period, he has done great alongside his crew, allowed players to get the best of themselves and has been the driver for parts of our 2026 policy plan. We have full confidence that Andres will continue. This streak is in a new season and many years after that. “
“When I think of Andries, I think of a loyal and professional player.”
The coach previously worked for FC Volendam, the Dutch national team (women), Willem II, Bayern Munich, VfL Wolfsburg, Arsenal and FC Barcelona. For a moment, there was speculation about the shift to Almere and de Graafschap, which put Mike Snowy on the street earlier this week. So these rumors can go back to the trash.
Glynor Plet will also remain loyal to Telstar for much longer. The 34-year-old captain has been playing for Telstar since 2019 and has scored 26 goals in 56 league matches. Elias Bronkhorst will leave Felsen this summer. The full-back is said to have already undergone medical checks at his new club, which will be announced later this week.
Monday will follow a clause about the Telstar season shutdown
