Brockie wins South African player award

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 30/05/2016

New Zealand striker Jeremy Brockie's prosperous club season in South Africa has been acknowledged at its annual awards.

Brockie was crowned Nedbank Cup player of the year, having helped steer SuperSport United to victory in the knockout competition final at the weekend.

The experienced All Whites frontman notched a goal and an assist in the 3-2 win over Orlando Pirates in Polokwane. His teammate and fellow All White Michael Boxall also scored and provided the cross for Brockie's goal.

It was his fourth goal in the Nedbank Cup and his 18th in all competitions for 28-year-old Brockie, the most by any premier division player this season.

It was also his first trophy success in an 11-year professional career.

Former Wellington Phoenix pair Brockie and Boxall have joined the All Whites for their Nations Cup campaign in Port Moresby.

Both watched the opening 3-1 win over Fiji over the internet before taking the field in Polokwane.

They will come into consideration for the second group game against Vanuatu on Tuesday.

A 47-cap international, Brockie was a late addition to the squad in Papua New Guinea in place of midfielder Clayton Lewis, who has been stood down while being investigated for a possible doping violation.
