Tauriq Dien signs his first professional contract with Stellenbosch FC
Tauriq Dien has put pen to paper during this transfer window with NFD club Stellenbosch FC. After his maestro role at the Old Mutual academy, the 19 year old has now moved on to new challenges and opportunities.
Tauriq’s role in the middle of the park sees him becoming the heartbeat of the team and the conductor of the orchestra. His ability to dictate the pace of game and passing range makes him valuable in transition from defence through the midfield and into the final third. Last year during a tour in Belgium, he single handily tore apart the Westerlo reserve team leaving the park with three assists and a goal to his name.
At the end of the 2015/2016 season the central midfielder was scouted to join the Ajax Cape Town’s academy team but rather opted to join the NFD outfit, Stellenbsch FC. A bright future indeed is predicted with his progression into professional and we look forward to witnessing his career grow from strength to strength.
