Jamshedpur FC has signed the services of Australian forward Harry Sawyer ahead of the ninth edition of the Hero Indian Super League, the club announced on Wednesday on their social media handles.
The Australian is the current leading goalscorer of the National Premier League Victoria 2022 and he is known to be at the right place at the right time in the box.
The forward will make a move from Australian club South Melbourne FC, where he played for two seasons. He featured in 23 matches this season for the club, scoring a total of 17 goals, the most for any player.
The lanky striker had played for Gold Coast Knights in 2020. In 2018, he made a move on loan to Hong Kong club Wofoo Tai Po where he scored 4 goals in 10 league games.
The Australian is delighted to sign with Jamshedpur FC and he is looking forward to giving his best.
Harry said, “This will be my first time in Indian football, and I am excited to join the current ISL League winners. Indian Super League has grown exponentially, with players like Tim Cahill having previously played in the league and for Jamshedpur. I have heard about the rich culture of Jamshedpur and the devoted fans at the Furnace. I am excited to experience the same and looking forward to kick-off my new adventure in India as a part of the Men of Steel.”
The team’s head coach Aidy Boothroyd also showered praise on Harry Sawyer.
“Harry’s skill in converting goals, shots inside the box, quick feet, targeted headers, and physicality makes him the best choice as a striker. Harry is a great addition to our squad and a potent threat to opponents’ defenses. With his skill-set, guidance, and hard work, we hope to see a lot of goals,” said Aidy Boothroyd.
Harry Sawyer will join the squad in mid-season and he will don jersey number 8.
