Bryce Moon (born 6 April 1986 in Pietermaritzburg, KwaZulu-Natal) is a South African football player currently playing for Mamelodi Sundowns in the Premier Soccer League as a defender and midfielder.

An attacking right-back and a decent crosser of the ball, Moon is nicknamed "Scooter" for his blistering pace.

International career[edit]

He made his national team debut for South Africa in a 1–0 win against Botswana on 29 September 2007 and has so far been capped 17 times scoring one goal.

Moon was also part of South Africa's squad at the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2009 FIFA Confederations Cup.

Fatal car crash, 2009[edit]

On 30 June 2009, Moon struck and killed a 25-year-old female pedestrian from Tembisa while driving in Sandton, Johannesburg. He sustained minor injuries and faced culpable homicide charges. The charges were dropped in April 2010 but were reinstated[1] in January 2011.

On 12 April 2013 he was found guilty of culpable homicide in the Randburg Magistrate’s Court. Magistrate Vincent Pienaar said Moon’s version that he was not speeding at the time of the accident is false. He said Bryce Moon had no regard for his victim's life. He was acquitted of murder, attempted murder, drunk driving and reckless driving.[2]
