Meyer In Dream Ezenkosi Trial

The stars seem to be aligning for Nedbank Ke Yona team member Jarred Meyer, who will be heading to Ezenkosi for a month long trial.
 
Nedbank have parented with the Premier Soccer League to launch the draft, which sees 16 players get a month to showcase their talent at a top flight club after the Nedbank KeYona team played against the Nedbank Cup champions, Mamelodi Sundowns.
 
Jomo Cosmos drew the lanky defender's name in the draft and it seems as if he was destined to head there after the club showed interest in him following a friendly match ahead of the Sundowns clash.
 
"This is definitely going to be a massive opportunity for me to showcase what I am capable of and make a name for myself at Ezenkosi. It seems very strange that they drew my name on the night because we played against them in a friendly match ahead of the Sundowns game and their management approached the Ke Yona team to make enquiries about me.
 
"So just to know that I am heading to a club that has shown interest in me, is definitely a positive sign but I am certainly not taking anything for granted. I have had plenty of setbacks before and will definitely not be getting ahead of myself again. Hopefully I can continue the form I have and make a good impression," Meyer said.
 
Although the players are expected to have their trials from the first week of October, Ezenkosi's management has told Meyer he could arrive sooner than that and the defender has accepted that invitation. He will be heading to Cosmos on Monday, September 14.
 
While standing in the tunnel of the Lucas Moripe Stadium, Meyer was in awe of the Sundowns players and began to doubt his ability but that soon subsided as he stepped onto the field and realised he certainly stand up to the challenge.
 
"It was certainly really special standing in the tunnel and looking at these PSL players, players who I grew up watching. It was certainly very inspiring to have the chance to not only play against them but to also interact with them after the match.
 
"I could had a good chat with Surprise Moriri after the match and he took particular interest in watching me during the match but I think he was more interested in finding out why the Ke Yona team calls me Jabu," he added.
 
Meyer represented UFS-Kovsies in the 2013 and 2014 Varsity Football tournaments and has tipped UWC to host UP-Tuks in the final and also feels the defending champions will retain their title, simply because of the amount of experience they have at this stage of the competition.
