Elisa Hendrik "Beb" Bakhuys (16 April 1909 – 7 July 1982) was a Dutch football player and manager.

Club career[edit]

Bakhuys made his senior debut for HBS on 27 September 1925 against Haarlem[2] and scored 36 goals in 44 matches for them.[3] He joined Zwolsche AC and had a spell with THOR in his native Dutch East Indies while working for the Bataafsche Petroleum Maatschappij in Surabaya.[4] He returned to ZAC and later HBS. In 1937 he controversially moved to VVV.[5]

He became the second Dutch player to play outside of the country[6] when he signed as a professional for FC Metz in 1937, in a move which ended his international career. The first Dutch national to play abroad was goalkeeper Gerrit Keizer.[6] Bakhuys was famous for his diving headers. During the Second World War he was forced to work in Leipzig.[5]

International career[edit]

Bakhuys scored 28 goals in 23 games for the Dutch national side.[1][7] He represented the Netherlands at the 1934 FIFA World Cup,[8]
