NEW Mother of all Canucks Abroad (and domestic)

Miki Cantave has moved on a free transfer from the B team of Albacete, to the B team of Lorca. This is a lateral move, as both clubs just promoted their A teams to the Spanish 2nd division for this season. And both have their B team in 4th tier.

He went on a free transfer on July 25. The team seems to be basically u-23 and as we stand, at 20, he's their youngest player. They play in the Murcia division, a small region but quite competitive for its size. Here's their schedule, from what I see they should aspire to make the promotion playoffs.

IMO being at Albacete or Lorca is about the same, the former has more tradition, but Lorca has new owners, a Spanish group who bought it from former Chinese player Xu Genbao a few days before Cantave was picked up. Wish him the best of luck.

Just going through the Canucks Abroad list for Spain. 

Chafik Naceri signed for Alcorcón B, fourth tier (tercera) in early 2016, and from what I see made one appearance for them, that season, not this past. I do not see he is still on their roster, nor was he this last season. In any case, Alcorcón first team is now 3rd tier.

Lucas Bijker, the Brazil-born Dutch is listed as a Cadiz player. I am just not sure what his Canada connection and links are.

I don't believe Patryk Misik is playing for Ordenes, as they dropped to 5th tier. Last I saw he was playing amateur in Toronto this summer. 

Andrew Lebre does not appear on the roster of Ourense who promoted to 4th tier. It may be pending, but I do recall reading he was keen to go to England. I have not seen him on a new team yet. 

Clearly we have to wait a bit to see what these guys do for teams.

Patryk Misik it seems is back with Órdenes in Spain.

I just assumed he'd leave as they relegated to 5th tier, now in Preferente Galicia, Group 1. To update Canucks Abroad, that is Spain, 5. 

I don't seem him listed on the roster, on a slim website, but there are only 17 on it; but here he is from a tweet from today's preseason game, he's no 8 if I'm not mistaken.

Bijker's father was born in Ontario.

That's not him, vaguely similar to the hairstyle he used to have, but different player.

Interesting, Bijker left Heerenveen to sign with Cadiz in the Spanish 2nd Division. A LB born in '93, he played in 2 matches for Netherlands U21 squad. Definitely worth a look.

What I think, he was just signed by Cadiz. A left back, left-footed, they say he can also play CB. Unlikely to get more bites with the Dutch national team. Born in Brazil and Brazil-Dutch nationality. So not sure if he holds CDN as well.

The whole Dutch single citizenship thing might be a pain. His father would have to look into his Canadian citizenship status, but being born here he should have no problem. Then Bijker needs to get his Canadian citizenship. Might be hard, might not be.

Not sure of the source but sounds like Charlie Trafford just signed for #ICTFC.

I'm curious if Zambrano has reached out yet? Would be a solid addition to our player pool
