UWC's Clinical Finisher
Reza Dramat is fast becoming UWC's go-to man when the team needs a late goal to claim maximum points in any game.
The 18-year-old has scored twice in the 90th minute for the Cape students, against NMMU and UP-Tuks, which handed them crucial wins as it has kept their semifinal hopes alive.
Despite being brought on late in both those games, playing a combined 20 minutes, Dramat is hopeful his scoring prowess has impressed his coach Boebie Williams enough to grant him more game time.
"I've enjoyed the time I had on the park thus far but, as any player will tell you, I would like to get into the starting XI and make an impact on the game from the start," he said.
The Cape Town born player spent some time in Pretoria where he enjoyed training in the under 19 sides of both Tuks Academy and fellow PSL side Supersport United.
The then 17-year-old was unable to make a major impact at those clubs and was advised to return to the Cape in order to have a better chance of making it into the big leagues.
The first year Sport Science student is a firm believer in taking every game as it comes and refuses to look too far into the future as anything can happen.
"As much as I want to go further with my football, I know anything can happen. So I take each game as it comes and try to make the most of the time I get on the park," he added.
UWC will be hoping Dramat can find the back of the net for them again when they face UCT in a crunch game, where one side is playing for pride and the other a semifinal spot. To add to the hype of the match, the tag of the Cape's top football university is also up for grabs.
