Jhonny van Beukering started his career at the youth academy of Vitesse Arnhem. He played for several clubs in the region before making a surprise move to Feyenoord Rotterdam on a 1-year contract in the 2010-11 season. Coach Mario Been who knew the striker from his NEC period, wanted him to help the Rotterdam club who was suffering from injured forwards. He played three matches before making another surprising move.

Van Beukering went abroad to sign for Pelita Jaya for the 2011 season, who are playing in the Indonesian Super League. The Velp-born player is from Indonesian origin and also was trying to make his international début for the Indonesian national team. His move to Indonesia could help him getting an international status. He finally played his first official match in April 12, 2012. Difficulties with visa caused his late debut.

In July 2012 he decided to return to the Netherlands. Van Beukering signed a contract at FC Dordrecht for the 2012-13 season to play under his former Vitesse coach Theo Bos. However after a few weeks, Bos decided to give up his job as head coach because of health problems. Van Beukering decided also to give his contract back and was released from his contract.

Van Beukering moved to the amateurs of Presikhaaf where his brother is the head coach, followed by the amateurs of MASV in 2013.
