TS Galaxy new signing Myer Bevan aims to follow in the footsteps of his fellow countrymen Jeremy Brockie and Michael Boxall who made their presence felt in the South African top-flight a few years back at SuperSport United.
Bevan recently joined the Rockets from Auckland City in New Zealand. The club describes him as a poacher of note. And all eyes will be on Bevan in the new season as he comes with a huge reputation.
The 23-year-old striker was in-form for Auckland City in New Zealand last season where he scooped the Golden Boot gong.
He played 17 games and managed to score 19 goals and also scored 12 goals in five outings for New Zealand’s Under-23s which took them to the Olympic Games in Japan.
In an interview with TS Galaxy website, he revealed that he has set his sights on emulating Jeremy Brockie and Michael Boxall.
“I just hope that I’ll follow in their footsteps. They have done well here. They have left their legacy. Hopefully, I can do the same thing,” said Bevan.
“I’m very excited to be here. I’m looking to play as many games as I can. I promise to give my all every single game. I promise to give 100% every time I’m on the field of play. I want to see the team progress. I just want to help the team and hopefully, goals will come.
Newcomers Tshakhuma Tsha Madzivhandila (TTM) and TS Galaxy will close off the proceedings in the first round of the Premier Soccer League (PSL) on Sunday at Thohoyandou Stadium. The match is set to kick-off at 15:00
“I played with Emiliano Tade and he told me that the South African league is a very good league. He gave me good advises. He said, ‘if you do well there, things can happen’,” concluded Bevan.
