Cape Town Spurs youth prospect Aden Dreyer has signed a professional contract with the club.
A graduate of the club’s Lambda Academy, Dreyer becomes the latest on a growing list of goalkeepers to rise through the club’s Ikamva ranks and into the senior fold.
“Feels like a dream come true, I’ve dreamt about this day from the moment I walked through the gates of Ikamva. I thank God really, he helped me a lot,” said the teenage shot-stopper on penning his first pro deal.
“It has always been in my mind to sign a professional contract, ever since I started playing. I always thought of the idea of being on TV, playing the game I love.”
The fact that the hard work only starts now is not lost upon Dreyer who is putting the steps in place to achieve his goals.
“Hard work, I now need to work harder, push myself and never feel settled,” he continued. “This is just the start of the process and also taking God with me on this process.
“My goals for the future would be taking it a step further, bettering myself. I will plan out short term goals, putting the small steps into place and taking it from there.
Dreyer added: “Training during the pandemic was really difficult. But I feel my will power pulled me through and seeing the goal and picturing the goal in my head of becoming a professional footballer inspired me to work hard, even during the pandemic.”
