Bram Castro (born 30 September 1982) is a Belgian footballer who plays for Heracles Almelo as a goalkeeper.

Club career[edit]

Castro made his debut in professional football, being part of the RC Genk squad in the 2000–01 season. He also played for Sint-Truidense VV before joining Roda JC.

Roda JC[edit]

At Roda, Castro was the number one goalkeeper for 3 seasons. On 30 October 2007, Castro scored the equalizer (2–2) in the dying seconds of the KNVB Cup 2007-08 third round tie against De Graafschap. Roda JC won the match 3–2 after extra time and would go on to reach the final, losing to Feyenoord. In December 2009 Castro was involved in a fight with fellow teammember Anouar Hadouir, who hit Castro in the face.[1] Hadouir was fined by the club but Castro would lose his place between the goalposts soon after and was released by Roda at the end of the season.

On 1 October 2010, Castro joined PSV Eindhoven for the 2010/2011 season. After 1 season at PSV Eindhoven he played 1 season for Sint-Truidense VV, 2 seasons for MVV Maastricht and in the summer of the 2014/2015 season he signed a 2 year long deal with Dutch Eredivisie team Heracles Almelo[2]
