Myer Stefan Major Bevan (born 23 April 1997) is a New Zealand footballer who currently plays as a forward for Auckland City and the New Zealand national football team.

Club career[edit]

Bevan played in his native New Zealand with Western Springs before moving to Auckland City, where he made his first-team debut on 28 February 2016, as an 86-minute substitute against WaiBOP United.[1] In the summer of 2016, Bevan moved to the Nike Academy in England.[2]

On 15 May 2017, Bevan signed with Canadian United Soccer League side Whitecaps FC 2.[3] After one season with Vancouver's reserve side, he transferred to Vancouver Whitecaps' MLS team on 13 December 2017.[4]

In 2018, Bevan moved to Sweden's third-tier on loan at Husqvarna FF.[5] After making five starts, he returned to his parent club. He is currently back on loan in the USL with the Whitecaps' affiliate club, Fresno FC.[6]

Bevan was released by Vancouver at the end of their 2018 season.[7] He trained with A-League side Wellington Phoenix and later trialled with Polish side Puszcza Niepołomice in early 2019, but could not win a contract with either team.[8][needs update]

International career[edit]

Bevan made his senior international debut for New Zealand in a 6–1 victory over Solomon Islands in a FIFA World Cup qualifier on 1 September 2017.[9]
