Boesman was born to a family from South Africa (Afrikaans) in Koningstad. He joined the jouth squad of FC Kings in 1996 since coach Alex Marron saw a lot of potential in the young kid. When Marron was axed in 2000, new coach Louis Fontaine did not see what Marron saw, and in 2001 he was sold to FC Donderar for Th. 1.888 million. At Donderar he was given few playing opportunities and only started a game once, in 2002. In 2003-04 he was loaned to FC Zenit St. Petersburg, who after a year decided to renew the loan deal for one year. Boesman then returned to FC Kings on a free transfer. When senior goalkeeper John Pomrose announced his retirement, Boesman was scheduled to become the starting keeper. In 2005, his breakthrough year, he started in all matches. He quickly became a fan favorite and was one of the best performing keepers of the year, only letting in 3 goals in his first 10 matches. Since then, he has averaged an impressive 1.9 goals/game and was named AFC Goalkeeper of the Year in 2005, 2007 and 2008.
National team careerEdit
Unlike his clubs, the National team did see something in Boesman. The U-20 team selected him to play for European tournaments beginning 1998 and he would appear in international U-20 matches from 2000. In 2002 he made his first appearance for the senior team and in 2004 he was selected as the principal goalkeeper. In 2010, he announced his retirement from international football.
In 2010 he married, model/designer Alessandra Artigas-Villanova. They had a daughter, Maria in 2011.
