Barnet assistant head coach Dick Schreuder has left the club to take up a managerial role with VV Katwijk in his native Netherlands.

The 42-year-old joined the Bees in June 2013 as head of coaching before stepping up to the role of joint head coach alongside fellow Dutchman Ulrich Landvreugd following the departure of Edgar Davids in January.

Schreuder's playing career saw him turn out for PSV Eindhoven, Sparta Rotterdam and Stoke City before turning his hand to coaching.

In 2007 Schreuder joined amateur Dutch club SDV Barneveld, guiding them to promotion in 2013 prior to joining the Bees' coaching staff. 

Alongside Landvreugd, Schreuder oversaw five consecutive wins in his nine games in charge of the club before returning to his original role as assistant when Martin Allen took charge in March.

Schreuder's departure comes less than three weeks after Landvreugd left the Hive as part of a coaching re-structure.
