Sybrandus ('Sieb') Johannes Andreas Dijkstra (born October 20, 1966 in Kerkrade, Netherlands) is a former footballer who played as a goalkeeper.


Dijkstra began his career with Roda JC but failed to make an appearance, spending time on loan at AZ Alkmaar and K.S.C. Hasselt. In 1991, he moved to Scottish side Motherwell, where he spent the next three seasons. He was regarded as a cult hero at Motherwell.

A £250,000 move to English side Queens Park Rangers followed, but he played just 11 times in two years. After loan spells at other English clubs, Dijkstra moved back to Scotland with Dundee United for £50,000. Dijkstra's time in Scotland was successful again, with over 80 appearances for the Terrors, including a Scottish League Cup runners-up medal. After a contract dispute, Dijkstra left Tannadice in 1999 and returned to the Netherlands to play for amateur side VV Sittard (via a week's spell with Ipswich Town), although he would end the season with RBC Roosendaal. Another year with RBC followed before a final playing spell with German Verbandsliga side F.C. Germania Teveren.
