Biography

Dutch left winger Raymond De Waard signed for Norwich for 225,000 from SC Cambuur Leeuwarden on 22nd March 2000 just before transfer deadline day. Born in Rotterdam on 27th March 1973, Raymond first played for non-leaguers LMO and SC Feyernoord before joining First Division Excelsior. In 1996/97 he made 32 appearances for them scoring on 4 occasions. The following season saw 28 games but no goals before his final season with Excelsior that generated 5 goals in 31 games before joining Cambuur in the summer of 1999.

Raymond made his debut for Norwich in the 2-2 draw with QPR on 25th March 2000. However a failure to fit in saw Raymond and fellow Dutchman Fernando Derveld transfer-listed by new acting manager Nigel Worthington in December 2000. Raymond's continued injury problems did not endear him to Worthington. Raymond made just 10 appearances in total for Norwich (4 in 1999/2000, 6 in 2000/01)

Norwich and De Waard came to a mutual agreement in March 2001 ending Raymond's contract early so he was able to return to Holland during the Dutch transfer window, signing for AZ Alkmaar and making his debut in a 1-1 draw with NEC Nijmegen. On 2nd July 2002, Raymond joined Dutch Division One side RBC Roosendaal on a one year contract. He is now playing for an amateur side Altjid Sterkerworden Hendrik (ASWH) in Holland.
