A goalkeeper who had a long career in England after starting in Holland, but had a shadow of a match-fixing allegation hanging over him for much of his time in the game.

Played only 16 times for PSV Eindhoven, after joining his hometown club as a junior, before he was signed by Brian Clough for Nottingham Forest in 1984.  Spending four seasons at the City Ground, Hans became a popular and well regarded keeper, but during his last season under Clough, he fell out of favour and went out on loan to Stoke City, Sheffield United and Dunfermline Athletic.

Moved to Wimbledon to get some first team action and stayed there for eight years, seeing the club rise from lower league upstarts to an established Premier League side.  His part in the development of the club was as a replacement for Dave Beasant and he used all of his 5' 11" frame to get in the way of shots and headers.  However, it was getting out of the way of the ball in a final day match at Goodison Park against Everton in some people's eyes that raised suspicions about match-fixing, as the Toffees won to stay in the Premier League.

The Police investigated the matter for some time and Segers, Wimbledon forward John Fashanu and Liverpool goalkeeper Bruce Grobbelaar all faced charges of match fixing , but were acquitted by Winchester Crown Court in 1997.

Later that year, Segers and Bruce Grobbelaar were given suspended sentences by the FA for illegal betting and were required to pay 4,000 each in costs, after charges were brought arising from the testimony they gave in court.

Hans went to Wolves in 1996, but his stay as reserve team keeper was brief as he moved on to Woking, before re-joining the Molineux club later in 1997.  Signed for Spurs as cover and was only called upon twice for first team appearances, but moved into goalkeeper coaching and he was the main coach at Spurs for about nine years.

Remained as a goalkeeping coach with Spurs until 26th October 2007, when he left at the time Martin Jol was relieved of his Head Coach's position.

When Martin Jol took over as Fulham manager, Segers re-joined his old boss as goalkeeping coach at Craven Cottage.
