When Bonnyrigg White Eagles club officials starting chasing Dean Bereveskos late last season, the outcome was inevitable.
The 22-year-old is a big fan of White Eagles skipper Ray Miller, and the one time youth player with Bayer Leverkusen’s youth side can’t wait to ply his trade in the middle of the park next to the man affectionately known as ‘Whiz.’
“Definitely playing with Ray was a huge attraction,” Bereveskos told Football NSW.
“We also know each other from Futsal circles, I know what he can do on the pitch.
“Bonnyrigg is a big club used to winning trophies, they have ambitious plans for this season, I’m looking forward to being a part of that.”
Bereveskos’ football CV is impressive to say the least.
Following his stint in Germany he then represented Wolverhampton Wanderers in the United Kingdom as a teenager.
Eventually he made his way back to Sydney, turning out for a host of leading NPL NSW clubs, namely Rockdale City Suns and Sydney Olympic FC.
He caught the eye playing for Hakoah Sydney City East in 2017, where he was a key player in their success away from the league, mainly the FFA Cup and winning the Waratah Cup.
“I enjoyed my time at Hakoah, but like any footballer I want to win trophies and play at the highest level possible,” the student at Homebush’s Australian College of Physical Education said.
“Bonnyrigg will suit how I like to play, I love to be on the ball running at players.
“With Aaron Peterson back from injury and Tynan Diaz returning from the Brisbane State League, we have dangerous players all over the park.
“Our assistant Milan Susak has been great and what else needs to be said about Bomber (head coach Brian Brown).
“It will be a tight competition, we all can’t wait for round one versus (Sydney) Olympic.”
