Kevin Harmse (born July 4, 1984 in Johannesburg) is a South African-born Canadian soccer player.


Club career


Youth years

Harmes grew up in Vancouver, British Columbia, and began his youth career training at the Roman Tulis School in Coquitlam, British Columbia.


Harmse was drafted by the Vancouver Whitecaps in 2002 but did not sign with the club; instead, after training with both Bayern Munich and Benfica he signed with Tromsø IL in the Norwegian Premier League. He did not see much playing time, and returned to the Whitecaps in 2004, where he gradually worked himself to become a cornerstone of the Whitecaps defense, playing in 36 games and scoring once.

He signed for Nitra in the Slovakian Corgoň Liga in 2006, spending a year with the club, before signing with Los Angeles in April 2007.

Major League Soccer

He made his MLS debut on April 12, 2007, coming on at halftime against FC Dallas. He scored his first goal for the club on April 28, 2007, against Chivas USA.

Harmse was traded to Toronto FC in March 2008 for a fourth round draft pick. Harmse was used as a central defender for much of the 2008 season, and is expected to continue in this role in 2009.

Harmse scored his first goal for Toronto FC in the 2009 Nutrilite Canadian Championship opening game against his former team, the Vancouver Whitecaps, on May 6, 2009 at BMO Field.

Harmse was traded to Chivas USA on June 24, 2009, but did not feature in any games in his debut season with the team.

On January 21, 2010, Chivas traded Harmse to Houston Dynamo for a conditional third- or fourth-round draft pick.[1].

Due to Harmse not being able to train with the club in pre-season due to a recurring injury, Houston opted to waive him on March 9, 2010[2].

International career

Harmse played an important part of Canadian U-20 team that made it to the quarterfinals in the 2003 FIFA World Youth Championship. He also played for the U-23 team that failed to qualify for the 2004 Olympics.

He made his debut with the senior Canadian national team on March 25, 2007, against Bermuda. By December 2009, he earned a total of 9 caps, scoring no goals. He has so far represented Canada in 3 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[3].
