Maritzburg United are pleased to announce the successful deadline day signing of New Zealand international striker Jeremy Brockie.
The Team of Choice have already enjoyed a busy transfer window period, but management saved the best for last with the recruitment of the former SuperSport United ace on a one-year loan deal.
“This is a headline signing for us, aquiring a player who comes with such excellent pedigree,” said Team of Choice chairman Farook Kadodia.
“We were content with the squad reinforcements which had been made, but when Brockie became available, we could not pass up on the opportunity to bring him to Pietermaritzburg.
“The reality is, we cannot continue to cry about missed chances, games which we dominated but failed to score in.
“With Jeremy, we know how prolific he was during his time with SuperSport United; he is an experienced, proven PSL goal-scorer with an excellent all-round game and we feel very optimistic about what he will bring to our team.
Brockie took the Premier Soccer League (PSL) by storm in his first two seasons, scoring 19 league goals and nine domestic cup goals for Matsatsantsa.
He also bagged five goals in the 2017 CAF Confederation Cup for SuperSport, before his big move to Sundowns, where he struggled to hit the same heights during a difficult 18 months.
“We believe that Maritzburg United will provide a great opportunity for the player to reignite his career,” the chairman added.
“Fans at the Harry Gwala Stadium will remember when Brockie played here in a SuperSport jersey and made our lives tough – he always seemed to score here – I recall a game when we were fighting relegation and Brockie turned and scored with a volley to win the match for his team.
“So this is more than just a signing. This is an investment for the city and a major thank you for our fast growing fan base in the province of KwaZulu-Natal.”
