With plans to secure the Eredivisie fourth place spot for years to come, FC Utrecht have brought in promising defenders Robin Zwartjens and Bart Sinteur from Feyenoord U19 squad. As well as the two Rotterdammers,  Jeredy Hilterman and Conner Blöte were signed from Willem II A1 and Ajax A1 respectively.

For each highly rated youngster, the chance to play regularly in the Jupiler League with Jong Utrecht has proved too enticing. Sinteur summed the feeling up, stating:  “I look forward to playing in the Jupiler League where it really matters for the fans and I believe I can learn a lot here.”
