Downs Players Signed From Europe

After reflecting on the names both Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates signed from overseas-based clubs, we now shift the focus to the Brazilians and take a look at players that Downs signed from abroad.

Alje Schut

Currently captaining the side, Schut was signed from Dutch side FC Utrecht in 2012 and made an immediate impression upon his arrival at Chloorkop. In his three years at the club, Schut managed to become one the club's most important players but will soon head home to Holland.

Matthew Booth

Between 1998 and 2001, Booth made over 100 appearances for Downs in what was a successful five-year spell at Chloorkop, before moving abroad to both England and Russia. He was re-signed in 2009 from Russian club Krylia Sovetov.

Matthew Pattison

Born in Johannesburg, Pattison started his career out in Europe with Newcastle United and Norwich City. The hard-tackling midfielder was signed by Downs in 2009 and spent four years with the club.

Sibusiso Zuma

One of South Africa’s greatest ever players, Zuma became a legend at FC Copenhagen between 2000 and 2005. He then spent three years at Arminia Bielefeld before being snapped up by Downs in 2008.
