Den Ouden has extensive experience playing in his native Netherlands, having made over 150 appearances for clubs such as SBV Excelsior and RBC Roosendaal since turning professional in 1998.


Den Ouden was signed by Swedish club Djurgården in 2003, and played two seasons with the club, winning the Allsvenskan in 2003 and the Svenska Cupen in 2004.

Return to the Netherlands

He subsequently played for ADO Den Haag, Willem II, a second stint with Excelsior Rotterdam, and De Graafschap.


Den Ouden made his debut for Valletta in the first qualifying round of the Europa League against Icelandic side Keflavik, scoring a goal in the 72nd minute, to round the match to a 3–0 win for the Maltese side. His Maltese Premier League debut arrived in the first league match of the season, scoring the opener in a 3–1 win over Birkirkara.

But after his weak and poor start with Valletta, he agreed together with the club that his contract will be terminated. This was finalised on November 15, 2009.[1]

United States

In December 2009 Den Ouden was approached by fellow Dutch professional Erik Tammer, who asked him to join the fledgling Dayton Dutch Lions team, which made its debut in the USL Premier Development League in 2010. Den Ouden agreed; he played his first game for the team on May 15, 2010, a 3-0 victory over the Cleveland Internationals in which he scored his team's third goal.[2]
