Club careerEdit

Before signing for Ajax in January 2013, De Ridder last played for Turbine Potsdam in Germany's Bundesliga.[2] She had previously competed in the Netherlands' Eredivisie, winning four titles with Ter Leede and AZ. She scored her first goal for Turbine in the 10–0 2011–12 Champions League home win against Glasgow City.[3]

Due to a long term knee injury suffered in December 2011, she only played seven Bundesliga matches. She left Potsdam in January 2013 and headed back to the Netherlands, intent on getting more match practice and breaking back into the Dutch team ahead of UEFA Women's Euro 2013.[4]

International careerEdit

She is a member of the Dutch national team, and played in the 2009 European Championship[5] after making her senior debut on 29 July 2007 against North Korea.[6]

In June 2013 national team coach Roger Reijners selected De Ridder in the Netherlands squad for UEFA Women's Euro 2013 in Sweden.[7]
