Deklan Wynne signs with Vancouver Whitecaps

" As has been reported in the National Press we can confirm that East Coast Bays player Deklan Wynne was transferred to Major League Soccer club Vancouver Whitecaps on Friday (see the press release from the Whitecaps above), in time for Deklan to make his debut for the Whitecaps 2nd team in a 3 – 1 defeat to Portland Timbers. Deklan has signed an 18 month contract with the Whitecaps and will initially play for the USL Reserve team of the Whitecaps with the intention of joining the full MLS Squad for the 2016 season.


Deklan joined East Coast Bays in 2010 on his arrival in New Zealand from South Africa and had immediate success with Bays as a member of the Willy Gerdsen/Rod Grove 2010 Nike Cup winning squad. In the following season Deklan also gained a Championship medal in the 2011 Metro u17 league before joining the first team squad in 2012, where he won a NRFL Premier League winners medal in 2013. His performances over this time brought him to the attention of National coaches which led to him playing for Wanderers SC in the ASB Premiership in the 2013/14 and 2014/15 summer seasons and ultimately to caps at u20, u23, and full international level including playing every minute at the recent u20 World Cup.


Deklan has been a great servant of East Coast Bays during his time with us and we wish him every success in his future career which we will watch with great interest."
