Nigel Boogaard (Dutch: [ˈnɑjdʒəlˈboːgaːrd]) (born 14 August 1986) is an Australian football (soccer) player who plays as a central defender for A-League club Adelaide United.

Club career[edit]

Central Coast Mariners[edit]

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.

Adelaide United[edit]

Boogaard signed with Adelaide United on 6 November 2009 and joined them for their upcoming AFC Champions League campaign.[1][2]

On 8 May 2012, it was announced that Boogaard had signed for a further two years with Adelaide United.[3]

On 20 July 2013, Boogaard 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. Boogaard, along with Brisbane Roar forward Besart Berisha, were the only players to play out the full match.
