Lots of transactions for HCAW

Like every year, it is quite a carousel during the transition period in Bussum.

U18 World Cup 2017: Dutch fall to Cuba despite good game

In a rather close game between Cuba and the Netherlands, the Dutch stayed at the wrong side of the score (3-0) for the second day in a row.
