Playing career[edit]

Van Kruijssen made his first team debut on 27 August 2010, replacing Vansimpsen 83 minutes into a 3–0 victory over Fortuna Sittard at Jan Louwers Stadion.[1]

In 2013, van Kruijssen was sent on a summer loan to the USL Premier Development League team, Houston Dutch Lions. He made his debut on May 11, 2013 against Laredo Heat where he scored.
