“Definitely, the competition is tough, but I am enjoying it.”

Govan, who will look to play his first minutes in a Hume City shirt when it hosts Richmond SC in a pre-season friendly at ABD Stadium on Saturday, said the club and players are squarely focused on winning trophies in 2017.

“We are all there to win and we are all there to try and win trophies, bring silverware to the club and get ourselves right up the league challenging for it and trying to win some trophies.”

Hume City technical manager Dean Hennessey, said that Govan has fitted in well with his new teammates as his new squad starts to take shape before the beginning of pre-season friendlies.

“Blair has settled in well since he arrived from Perth a few weeks ago,” Hennessey said
