According to an article on The Fiji Times The BA Football Club is currently on a tour of Canada and recently won the Fijian Day Soccer Tournament held at Bear Creek Park in Surrey earlier in July. Twenty three year old defender Alvin Singh was apparently impressive enough to draw the attention of Whitecaps staffers.
The article seems a little sketchy as it says he impressed the Whitecaps staff in training on Saturday. Nobody was playing soccer in Vancouver on Saturday. The PDL team was in action on Saturday, but in Bremerton Washington against League Leaders Kitsap Pumas. According to the game sheet he never entered the field of play. So we are left to wonder where he was showing off his talents to the technical staff.
While there seem to be some holes in the story, it also pops up on Radio Fiji Two where Singh is quoted as saying:
“It went well for me. It is the first time for me and I did do great out there. Players were impressed, especially the Vancouver Whitecaps players. Yes I do think I did good. This week, I will need to go for a couple of more trials. So I’m looking forward to it. If given a chance, I will grab this opportunity."
This leads to a lot more questions that we will surely get the answers for over the next week.
