Edmonton, AB (July 29, 2013) - FC Edmonton show off a third trialist on Monday in the teams first training session of the week.
Canadian striker Anthony Bahadur is a native of Toronto who also holds a citizenship in the US and Trinidad & Tabago. He comes on trial with the club familiar with the Eddies history having grown up with FCE midfielder Massimo Mirabelli and former Eddie Kyle Porter. Bahadaur noted that he’s always kept an eye on how the Edmonton-based team is doing because of these connections.
Stepping onto the soccer scene in the OSL with Cruz Azul Shooters in Mexico - he has moved all over the world to follow his soccer career including Singapore and Israel. Recently, he has spent time training with MLS side Columbus Crew, where his cousin plays for the team.
Monday was not technically Bahadur’s first training session with FC Edmonton. After arriving in the Alberta capital on Friday, he did participate in the FCE Intersquad game on Saturday.
“He has shown promise,” said head coach Colin Miller. “Even though he’s on trial, he has gotten along well with the team and has adapted to our style in the short time he’s been here.”
Enjoying his time back in Canada, Bahadaur looks forward to his time with FC Edmonton.
David Zaharija and Dominic Oppong were not offered contracts at the end of their trials with FC Edmonton.
