After struggling with injuries to begin his career, Myers enjoyed his best season to date in 2013, playing a career-high 20 games as he became a regular fixture in the senior midfield. Famous for his long, ranking left-foot kick, Myers utilised his kicking to great effect as he managed to clear defensives zones and break open the play. With the traits of a leader, Myers will be looking to continue to evolve his game in 2014 as both a clearance-winning midfielder and a leader.
