Brockie will be very familiar with Boxall's game having
played with the centre-back at Wellington Pheonix and New Zealand national
The striker, who himself has had a big impact on the league
since joining Matsatsantsa in January, believes his compatriot will give
strikers in South Africa a hard time.
"'Boxy' will bring a lot of strength to our back
line," Brockie told KickOff.
"He's a centre back that's strong,
quick and can play.
"He's a defender I always hated playing against so I'm
very happy to have him on my team."
Brockie revealed SuperSport coach, Gordon Igesund, has had his
eye on Boxall for some time and admitted he had a hand in convincing the
defender to join the club.
Matsatsantsa won silverware in the form of the Telkom
Knockout this season, but are looking to mount a challenge for the league title
next term having only finished sixth this campaign.
