Central Coast Mariners
Coming from the Weston Workers Bears, Boogaard has had a rollercoaster career. He scored his first A-League goal for the Mariners in a match against bitter rivals Newcastle Jets on 14 August 2009 (also his 23rd birthday). It was a miscued header off the shoulder after poor defending and the keeper dropped it over the line.
On 8 May 2012, it was announced that Boogaard had signed for a further two years with Adelaide United.
On 20 July 2013, Boogard started for the A-League All Stars in the inaugural A-League All Stars Game against Manchester United, a match in which the A-League All Stars were thrashed 5-1, courtesy of goals from Danny Welbeck, Jesse Lingard and Robin van Persie. Boogard, along with Brisbane Roar forward Besart Berisha, were the only players to play out the full match.
