Dutch Football Club Signs Toddler to Contract

Baerke van der Meij may be just a toddler; but, he sure can kick a football. The Dutch child so impressed the local VVV Football Club in the town of Venlo that they symbolically signed him to their team on a 10-year contract.

The club first saw Baerke successfully kick three balls straight into his toy box on a YouTube video that his father posted. They invited him a "trial", where they learned the little boy has football potential in his genes. His grandfather had played for VVV. A club spokes person said the youngster demonstrated good technique and perseverance.

Take a look at Baerke in action in the following short clip.
