Carl Haworth

Recommended Posts

Currently signed to an Ottawa Fury senior contract and playing regularly.

Haworth, 24, is a 5’7 striker who was drafted by the Montreal Impact in the 2012 MLS Supplemental Draft following an all-star campaign in the NCAA. That same year Haworth would get called to the Canadian U23 National Team debuting in the CONCACAF Men’s Olympic Qualifiers before returning to FC London where he led them to the PDL Championship. This past summer, Haworth led the PDL in assists (12) and finished the season with a club-record 18 goals in all competitions helping the Ottawa Fury reach the Eastern Conference Championship Final.

Born in Southport, England his family moved to Barrie, ON when he was just one-year old. Haworth would join Niagara University on a scholarship in 2008 where he collected 35 goals and 21 assists for 91 points in 73 career games with the Purple Eagles. He was twice named a Metro Atlantic Conference (MAAC) First Team All-Star (2010-11), was the MAAC Rookie of the Year and member of the MAAC All-Rookie Team in 2008 and was on the MAAC All-Academic Team from 2009-2011.

Haworth’s offensive prowess in the NCAA was mirrored in the summer months while playing in the PDL. Haworth was named to the All-League team in 2013 for his stellar performance with the Fury, but he put his stamp on the PDL during his four seasons with FC London that included a North American Championship. His PDL career with both Canadian squads totals 48 goals and 19 assists for 115 points in 70 games.

Haworth is a player I've been following closely since the impressive Olympic Qualifying team he was on in 2012.


He has a lot of raw talent and a great ability to find the net, which he showed during the 2013 PDL season with Ottawa Fury. I didn't see him much with FC London, but I've only heard great things about him there as well.


Seeing as our national team is in need of strikers who can find the back of the net, I'd like to see Carl develop well enough with the Fury to maybe catch the attention of Floro for Canada. He's looked great in NASL this year with Ottawa, but has yet to score a goal. That's one thing I'd like to see him do soon, so it doesn't get in the way of his confidence.


Having had the pleasure of seeing him live in both PDL and NASL, I know he has a lot to offer. He is a player who benefits hugely from having NASL clubs in Canada, but, at age 24, I think his time is running out if he wants to move into higher leagues and potentially the MNT picture.


For what its worth, he was voted the Bytown Boys (Ottawa supporters group) player of the year in 2013 :).
