Bob Schepers (born 30 March 1992 in Enschede) is a Dutch footballer who plays as a winger for ONS Sneek in the Dutch Topklasse. Schepers represented the Netherlands U-17 team at the 2009 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship and the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup.

Club career[edit]

Schepers started the 2008–09 season in the youth of SC-Cambuur-Leeuwarden. On 24 February 2009, Schepers signed a three-year deal with the club.[2] Schepers made his debut for Cambuur on 24 April 2009 in a 0–1 defeat against FC Dordrecht, coming on as a substitute for Sandor van der Heide.[3] Schepers was close to a move to FC Groningen, however the move failed to materialise.[4] On 5 February 2010, Schepers made his first appearance in the starting line-up in a 1–1 draw against AGOVV Apeldoorn.[5] Since then, Schepers established himself in the squad, being in the starting line-up against SBV Excelsior on 22 February 2010 and against RBC Roosendaal on 23 April 2010.[6][7]

In the 2010 Summer Transfer window, English Premier League club Everton F.C. tracked Schepers and arranged a trial for him. He was present at the pre-season fixture against Clyde.[8]

On 30 August 2011, Schepers joined Eredivisie side FC Utrecht on a three-year contract with an option to extend for further two years.[9] He returned to his former team Cambuur on a loan deal before the transfer window closed.

International career[edit]

Schepers was active at the 2009 UEFA European Under-17 Football Championship for the Netherlands, playing as a left winger. Schepers was surprised he made the team stating that while he played for Cambuur, the other players all played for big clubs like Ajax, Feyenoord, and Arsenal.[4] In the group stages, Schepers came on as a substitute in the 2–1 victory over Turkey.[10] In the 2–1 semi-final victory over Switzerland, Schepers was in the starting line-up.[11] In the final against hosts Germany, Schepers again came on as a substitute, however they lost the match 1–2 after extra time.[12][13]

Schepers was also a member of the Dutch squad for the 2009 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Nigeria, although the team failed to progress beyond the group stage.[14] Schepers played two matches at the tournament, coming on as a substitute against Iran and Colombia.[15][16]
