The 20-year-old midfielder from Napier broke into the Navy Blues first team ranks last season after putting a star turn for the Junior Navy Blues in the National Youth League.

He made his first appearance for the senior team in a pre-season friendly with Waitakere United at Ngahue when he came on as a second half substitute in a 0-0 draw.

Reid Drake captained the Junior Navy Blues to a second place finish in the National Youth League two seasons ago and now features semi-regularly for the first team.

The youngster built on top of that achievement alongside older brother Danyon by helping guide Central United to a Lotto NRFL Premier Division title win last winter.

The pair then played a key role in Central United reaching the ISPS Handa Chatham Cup final in September which was sadly lost in a dramatic penalty shoot-out with Onehunga Sports. 

Accustomed to the club's possession style football, Drake rates John Irving as his toughest opponent while unlike brother Danyon, describes himself as a committed supporter of Liverpool.

Phillipe Coutinho is his favourite Reds' player. 

Drake rates his two OFC Champions League winners medals as his most treasured possessions and wants to add the ISPS Handa Premiership to that collection along with another Oceania title.
