Official: Brockie lands new club

International

Former Mamelodi Sundowns striker Jeremy Brockie has joined NPL Northern NSW side Edgeworth Football Club.

Brockie, 33, has been lured to the Australian team by former Leeds United striker Michael Bridges as they look to sustain their dominance in the  New South Wales subdivision of the National Premier League.

The New Zealand international who was considered a success in the DStv Premiership with SuperSport United failed to replicate his form at Masandawana before being loaned to Maritzburg.

However, as he now enters the final stage of his career, the move the Edgeworth has been cited as a way to be closer to his family now.

"With [Brockie] and then Kristian back, it's a classy duo to get," Edgeworth administrator Warren Mills told Newcastle Herald about their latest signing.

"He's 33 and been a professional player all his career and he's played 60-odd times for New Zealand, so he's a decent player. I think it's a massive signing for us."

The 50-time capped Kiwi scored 54 goals and registered 18 assists in 152 games across all competitions during his five-year spell in South African football.
