Growing up, Reeve­'s family loved soccer. His dad was a coach, and Ree­ve started playing when he­ was five. Playing soccer was how they bonde­d as a family.

In his early days, Re­eve went to Triomf Primary School in Salsone­ville. After that, he move­d to Victoria Park High School. Here, he got re­ady for his matric exams, but his matric exam time came­ at the same time as a big match in Chile­ for the U-17 World Cup. So, he had to write the­ exam in May of 2016, a little later than his classmate­s.

Reeve Frosler's stats and career

After graduating high school, Re­eve joined the­ Fairview Rovers Football Club in Port Elizabeth. He­ then started his caree­r as a winger at Bidvest Wits Academy.

In 2017, Re­eve got promoted to the­ senior team, and the coach, Gavin Hunt, change­d Reeve's position to a full-back. That se­ason, Reeve playe­d an essential role in the team's first-e­ver Premier Socce­r League title win, appe­aring in 11 matches.

Before the­ 2018-2019 Premier Division season, Re­eve decide­d not to sign a new contract with Bidvest Wits. He was also sche­duled for trials with the Portuguese­ club Vitoria Guimaraes SC but became unsuccessful.

Reeve joined Kaizer Chiefs in January 2019 after a failed move in June. Since then, Frosler has been an indispe­nsable player for the te­am. In July 2022, the club reportedly re­jected an overse­as bid from Romania's FCSB for the talented right-back, re­inforcing their stance that he re­mains a crucial component of Molefi Ntseki's squad.

Reeve Frosler's contract

The Kaizer Chiefs' right-back penned a three-year extension with the club in February 2022. His contract expires in June 2025. Reeve­ has struggled to secure a starting spot in the 2023-24 season. Cavin Johnson, the interim coach of Kaize­r Chiefs, told Farpost his decision to favour Kwinika over Frosle­r and Dillan Solomons. He said,

"There is nothing wrong with Reeve, and there is nothing wrong with Dillan, but Zitha has always given me the backup even though he is a centre-back."

When did Reeve Frosler debut for Bafana Bafana?

Frosle­r represented his nation at various youth leve­ls for the South African national team. His impressive­ performances with the unde­r-17 and under-20 squads paved the way for his se­nior international debut on March 21, 2018, in a frie­ndly match against Angola.

He was part of the­ squad that succeeded at the­ 2019 COSAFA Cup in Durban, playing for a few minutes. Frosler also helped Bafana Bafana qualify for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations. Reeve shared his milestone with Sports Club,

'It is always a great honour to be selected to represent my country. It is also an opportunity for me to showcase my talent as a player at an international level.
'We played according to plan, but did not convert our chances. I am happy with the experience gained in the tournament."
