Davyn Keuter can put his feet up this weekend as Edinburgh University do not have a game and reflect on a double hat-trick on his Division One debut for the students.

And the South African-born defender revealed that it is not the first time he has netted six in one game.

Four of his strikes in an 8-5 victory over city rivals Inverleith at Peffermill came from penalty corners.

The other two were from penalty flicks as the Fife-based, former Dunfermline Carnegie player slotted home.

The bearded player from Durban switched to Division One side Edinburgh University from the Division Two club in the summer looking to play at a higher level.

It was a big decision for the Dunfermline-based talent who works full-time in the factory which produces paint to keep the iconic Forth Rail Bridge in top condition.

And it is the new Forth crossing which is causing Keuter the biggest hassle currently.

He has to drive from his Dunfermline home training twice a week at Edinburgh’s Peffermill.

And the traffic on the new Queensferry Crossing has been a nightmare.
Keuter moved to Scotland several years ago to study architecture and loves it here.

He said: “I wanted to test myself in a higher league and I got this opportunity. Things have gone well so far.

“I’ve scored six goals in a game before in South Africa and my debut could not have gone better.

“I scored from a penalty flick after around 30 seconds after our first attack and the most difficult goal was my sixth.

“I knew it was my double hat-trick and I’d also put one past their goalkeeper earlier in the game.

“I was glad it went in and I’m looking forward to the rest of the season.
“We’re looking to finish in the top four.”
