KickOff.com met the player at his house in Parkwood Estate this weekend, with the 26-year-old exclusively revealing his desire to play for Ajax Cape Town this season.
“I am currently a free agent after my contract with Ikapa Sporting FC ended last season. I endured a frustrating season at Ikapa, playing only two games, in which I scored two goals. But my lack of game time was more due to me breaking my arm twice, than not being in favour with the coach,” Rector told KickOff.com.
“The arm has healed completely and I am hoping to secure a trial with Ajax Cape Town. I approached them last week, but club boss John Comitis is currently out of the country. I am hoping join their pre-season camp this week.”
Rector started his career at FC Fortune, before moving to play for Excelsior Mouscron in Belgium in 2002.
He failed to secure a move to Bolton Wanderers in 2005 and returned to South Africa for a short spell with the Urban Warriors, before moving to Brondy IF in Denmark, but was released in 2007, after which he signed a one-year deal with Ikapa.
Rector scored four goals in 18 appearances for Amaglug-glug.
