Johannes Gerardus Adrianus (John) Lammers (Dutch pronunciation: [ˈdʒɔn ˈlɑ.mərs], born December 11, 1963 in Tilburg, Noord-Brabant) is a retired football (soccer) striker from the Netherlands, and current head coach of Eerste Divisie club FC Eindhoven.

Playing career[edit]

After his active career he started to work as an assistant coach, and also served as striker coach at Feyenoord Rotterdam's youth complex. He was subsequently signed by SBV Excelsior as Alex Pastoor's aide at the small Rotterdam-based club. In June 2011, after the departure of Pastoor to NEC Nijmegen, he was promoted as head coach for the new season.[1] After one year to serve as head coach, he left Excelsior in charge of Eerste Divisie club FC Eindhoven. He signed a two-year contract with the club.[2]
