Sheppard returns to his hometown of Durban having signed for Golden Arrows ahead of the 2011/12 season.
A product of the SAFA/Transnet School of Excellence, he began his career with Seven Stars in the 1997/98 season, before becoming part of the set-up at Ajax Cape Town when Stars merged with Cape Town Spurs to form the new club in 1999.
He enjoyed some success with Ajax, winning the 2000 Rothmans Cup as they beat Orlando Pirates in a replayed final, but ultimately wanted to try his luck abroad and signed for Russian club Dinamo Moscow in 2004.
Things did not work out for him there and he was soon off to Greek side Panionios for the starts of the 2005/06 campaign.
After six months he was back in South African football though, joining Mamelodi Sundowns in 2006 and winning the League title with The Brazilians.
In January 2009 he opted to join ambitious North West side Platinum Stars but was frozen out of the side by coach Owen da Gama in the 2010/11 campaign and jumped at the chance to sign for Abafana Bes’thende.
He has a total of 18 Bafana Bafana caps, and also represented his country at Under-17, Under-20 and Under-23 level.
The speedy left-winger has been one of the influential players for Arrows this season when it comes to creating scoring chances with accurate crosses from the left wing, as well as his delivery from set pieces.
He has missed some matches through suspension and at the halfway stage Sheppard is looking to play a stabilising role for the team.
Season Wrap up
Sheppard took full advantage of his move to Arrows and featured regularly to reach a total of 26 appearances.
As one of the more experienced played in the side he proved that he still has the pace, skill and desire to play on the wing and also contributed with four goals.
