Brockie Eyes SSU Record After Hitting Half Century

Jeremy Brockie Is Closing In On A SuperSport United Club Record

By Joe Crann - Sep 12, 2017 02:36 PM @YesWeCrann
Jeremy Brockie may have only been in South Africa for around two and a half years, but he’s now just seven goals from becoming SuperSport United’s top scorer of all time.
The Kiwi forward, who was the subject of Mamelodi Sundowns’ attention during the transfer window, scored his 50th and 51st goals for Matsatsantsa during the weekend win over Maritzburg United, securing a spot in the upcoming MTN8 final.
Now, as he prepares to face Platinum Stars this evening, Brockie knows that seven goals will see him surpass the late Abram Raselemane’s record of 57 goals for the club. The 29-year-old has scored in every competition he’s played in, and Bloemfontein Celtic, Free State Stars and Baroka are the only three Absa Premiership sides he hasn’t scored against.
Brockie’s future was up in the air after he handed in a transfer request last month amid interest from Pitso Mosimane’s Sundowns, a request that the club rejected, and he responded by bagging a brace on his return to the XI.
Speaking to the Siya crew about his half century and the talk of his future, he said, “It's a fantastic feeling to bring up my half century of goals in SA… I've probably surprised a lot of people with my return in such a short time, but being a striker is all about confidence and I'm right at the top of my game at the moment. 
“The Maritzburg match was a huge game coming off the back of the transfer window closing, and I think I've answered a lot of people's questions about my commitment to and professionalism at the club going forward.”
Meanwhile, on Raselemane’s record, he explained, “Closing in on the club record is a goal that I'm now set upon myself to achieve, and I’m hoping that I can knock it off over the next couple of months. To be honest, I never thought about records before I came here, but it would be a satisfying achievement. Let me get there first, though!”
SuperSport face Dikwena tonight in what will be Roger de Sa’s first game as head coach and a reunion between him and his former assistant, Eric Tinkler.
