Prince Linval Reuben Mathilda Rajcomar (born 25 April 1985 in Maastricht) is a Dutch footballer of Netherlands Antilles, Indian descent,[2][3] who plays as a striker for Dutch club VVV-Venlo.

Club career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Prince made his debut for Fortuna Sittard against FC Eindhoven on 16 August 2002.[4] He then went on to play for FC Utrecht and Den Bosch.

Breiðablik[edit]

On 27 February 2007 Rajcomar signed a one-year contract with Icelandic club Breiðablik.[5]

At the end of the 2007 season he signed a two-year contract extension with Breidablik.

Valur, then champions of Iceland, made an approach to sign Rajcomar during the 2008 transfer window, but Breiðablik UBK declined, saying he was not for sale.[6]

Rajcomar lost his place in the Breiðablik UBK side in the second half of the 2008 season, and has been linked with a move away from the club.[7] In October 2008, he joined Swedish club Örebro SK for a trial, hoping to secure a transfer.[8]

KR Reykjavik[edit]

Rajcomar was released by Breiðablik on 2 February 2009, and signed for Icelandic club KR Reykjavík on 5 February. He signed a 2-year contract with KR Reykjavík. Rajcomar was released from his contract with KR before the closing of the transfer window in August 2009.

He was due to go on trial with English League One side Southend United having been recommended to the Essex side,[9] however he missed his flight from Germany to the UK after turning up at the wrong airport and missed out on the opportunity.

Zalaegerszegi TE[edit]

On 7 September 2009, Rajcomar signed a contract with Hungarian outfit Zalaegerszegi TE after missing the opportunity to play in England for Southend United. In his first match for Zalaegerszeg, he caused a sensation by scoring a goal, and being booked with a red card.

International career[edit]

Prince was part of the Netherlands squad for the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship.
