    Junior All White Bevan pens Vancouver deal

    Junior All Whites striker Myer Bevan signs his first professional contract in North America.


    New Zealand under-20 striker Myer Bevan can't wait to enter the professional ranks after signing a deal with Major League Soccer club the Vancouver Whitecaps.

    Bevan, 20, will join Kiwis Deklan Wynne and Francis de Vries on the roster of the Canadian club's reserve side who play in the second-tier United Soccer League.

    A former member of the Auckland City FC youth team, Bevan played one game for the top side before joining the English-based Nike Academy a year ago.

    He impressed during a two-week trial with the Whitecaps.

    "This is what I have been dreaming about for a long time," he said.

    "I need to get there and get involved, start games and score, and hopefully see what happens."

    Bevan scored five goals in five games at last year's Oceania under-20 championship and was named player of the tournament.

    He was recently included in the Junior All Whites squad to compete at the under-20 World Cup starting this weekend in Korea.
