Nikko Boxall: ready for a new adventure in Finland

After spending two years in Denmark playing for Viborg FF, Nikko Boxall returned to Finland. The 28-year-old defender from New Zealand joined SJK Seinajöki and made his official debut on Sunday by playing 90 minutes in SJK’s 2-1 loss against KuPS.

That is Boxall’s third team in Finland: he played for VPS from 2015 to 2016 and he also played for KuPS in 2017 before moving to Denmark – “SJK is also a club I am already familiar with and I remember it from my own previous years in Finland as one of the “big boys” in the series. They won the Finnish championship in my first season and did well after that. I definitely want to do my best in SJK’s shirt and be involved in lifting the club back to success,” Boxall said.

SJK’s manager Jani Honkavaara also expressed his happiness for counting on Boxall – “A very tenacious defender and a good team player who leads downstairs with his own example,” he said in a press conference.

Boxall’s next challenge will be against Haka on Saturday. SJK is currently in the ninth position in the table with four points in five maches.
