Biography

Dick Loggere started playing for the first team of Laren at age 16 in 1937, and only retired from the club 24 years later, just after his 40th birthday. With Laren, he won the Dutch title twice, 1956 and 1961. He débuted for the Dutch national team in 1946, and was named captain the next year. A central midfielder, he played 85 matches for the national team, including at two Olympics. On both occasions, the Dutch were held from the gold by the dominant Indians. In 1948, they lost 2-1 in the semi-finals, and in 1952 the Dutch were swept off the pitch 6-1. The Dutch were favored to make the final once more in Melbourne 1956, but the Dutch NOC decided to boycott the Melbourne Games due to the Soviet response to the Hungarian Uprising. Loggere retired as an international player in 1958. After his retirement, the Laren MHC established the Dick Loggere Schaal, an award for the club's most valuable player. Loggere remained active as a board member of the club. In 1954, Dick Loggere founded his own company, Loggere Metaalwerken, which constructs lockers and cabins, among other things. His son Manus took ownership of the company in 1999.
