Marciano Bruma (born as Marciano van Homoet on March 7, 1984 in Rotterdam) is a Dutch footballer who currently plays for Rijnsburgse Boys.

Van Homoet is a defender who made his debut in professional football as part of the Sparta Rotterdam squad in the 2004–05 season.

Club career


Van Homoet was signed by Barnsley on 8 June 2007.[1] He was originally known as Bruma, but was forced to change his name in September 2007, by the FA when Barnsley sent in his registration, after he completed a successful trial period with them at the start of the season.

When he broke his hand he had a plate screwed onto his second metacarpal in an hour-long surgery, the plate is a permanent attachment and can not be removed.

After breaking a bone in his hand during pre-season, Van Homoet made his Barnsley debut in December 2007 against Sheffield United.

During his first season at Oakwell, he excelled in the FA Cup Quarter-Final victory against Chelsea and also played at Wembley in the Semi-Final against Cardiff City.

His second season with the Oakwell outfit did not get off to a very good start; getting himself sent off in the first match of the 2008/09 season vs Queens Park Rangers.

Willem II

He was released in July 2009 when his contract expired. He then signed a deal with Dutch side Willem II.[2]

Arka Gdynia

He signed two-year contract with Polish club Arka Gdynia on 9 July 2010.[3] He was released from Arka Gdynia on 30 June 2011.[4]

Lech Poznań

On 18 August 2011 Bruma signed a one-year contract with Polish side Lech Poznań.[5]

Personal life

Marciano is the older brother of Chelsea player Jeffrey Bruma.


He had always been known as Marciano Bruma in the Netherlands, after dropping his father’s surname as a young child when his parents split up. But the FA insisted he should use the name on his birth cerificate, so in England he played as Marciano van Homoet[6]
