Saelhof: Myer Bevan out indefinitely from Cavalry, citing personal reasons

Amidst a flurry of developments in the Canadian soccer scene this Friday, yet another significant story has emerged.

According to Todd Saelhof of the Calgary Herald, 2023 CPL golden boot winner Myer Bevan will step away indefinitely from Cavalry, citing personal reasons.

“He’s returned back to New Zealand following our Concacaf fixtures and has not reported back to join the team since,” said Cavalry head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. to Todd Saelhof.

“What we know is there’s personal reasons for his decision to remain in New Zealand,” continued Wheeldon. “So beyond that, we’re trying to figure everything else out. He’s still a contracted Cavalry FC player, but we’re placing him on the inactive roster for now.”

That last sentence means that Bevan won't feature in the CPL this year. Players placed in the inactive list may not return to play at any point throughout the remainder of the CPL season.

Wheeldon says that there's no rift between them, and that it's just personal reasons.

Bevan is still under contract until the end of the 2024 season, with an option to extend until 2025, but it seems unlikely to be triggered if this issue isn't solved.

Since joining the club in 2022, he's scored 19 goals in 46 appearances, also recording 4 assists.

For all we know, we may have already watched the striker's last game with the Cavs.

With Bevan surely out for the season, Cavalry made sure to find a great replacement: Malcolm Shaw.

The club announced his signing this Thursday on a one-year deal with an option for 2025.
