Paul Nanne new Head Coach DSS
HAARLEM (Neth.) - Paul Nanne has been named as the new Head Coach of DSS, which is playing in the so-called 'Overgangsklasse'. Nanne succeeds Martijn Faneyte, who resigned for personal reasons after having coached DSS for one season. Nanne will be assisted by Harry van Vilsteren, who also was the Assistant Coach this season and has been active with youth teams the past 10 years.

This season, DSS finished in third place in the Overgangsklasse, seven points behind league-leader UVV. The champion went on to play best-of-five Promotion/Relegation Play-Off vs. Almere Magpies (last placed team in the big league), but was swept in three games, meaning the team from Utrecht will play again in the Overgangsklasse next season. In second place was RCH-Pingu´ns, which had only two points more than DSS.

As a player, Paul Nanne played in eleven Dutch big league-seasons between 1985-2000, including three stints with Kinheim in Haarlem. After having started his baseball-career at Schoten, Nanne made his debut on the highest level in 1985, while playing for Kinheim, where he played through the 1990 season (including two seasons in the first division). He then played for Haarlem Nicols in 1991, but went back to Kinheim, where he then played five more seasons. In 1993, he set a then-record with 10 saves. Next, Nanne left the club again for only one season (1997), playing in the First Division for DSS, the club he now will coach. In 1998, he played one more season for Kinheim, then played in the Belgian League for Namur and ended his career with Amsterdam Pirates in 2000, where he then became the Pitching Coach. In 2003, Nanne returned to playing again and was a member of the Hoofddorp Pioniers-2 squad, but then became the Head Coach of Amsterdam Pirates, whom he led in 2004 and 2005. In those years, he was a member of an unique coachingstaff, which also included Mike Crouwel, Ronald Stoovelaar and Eelco Jansen, as it was the first staff that was compiled entirely of not only former National Team-players, but also players who all participated in an Olympic Games.

The former lefthanded reliever then was the Head Coach of Hoofddorp Pioniers-2 in 2006 and in February 2009, he was named the Head Coach of the Junior-squad of the Rabbits, the baseball-team of Baseball Academy Kennemerland, whom he led in 2009 and 2010.

Paul Nanne, who also was a first baseman, played for the Dutch National Baseball Team in 1987-1996 and participated in the Olympic Games of 1996 in Atlanta (USA), one World Championship, two European Championships, three Haarlem Baseball Weeks and two World Port Tournaments, amongst other international events, appearing in 32 official games.

Within its financial possibilities, DSS has the ambition to go for the highest possible level, but also wants to give a lot of attention to a large group of young and talented players.
