So, how is the matrix?

Carlos Garcés? The guy who scored a goal every other game in the Ecuadorian Serie A over the past three seasons? The one with three caps for Ecuador who played for them at the Copa America this past summer?

That sounds so hard to believe that I'm assuming @FromAwaysHFX just gave a made-up example that coincidentally lines up with an actual player. Like, South American leagues pay poorly enough to believe that Wanderers could offer him a contract that isn't unreasonable compared to what he's making right now, but this guy could realistically just sign in MLS.

But I mean, if it's true, then holy ****.

Both players are from OBELISQ agency. I wonder if they could get a player like Masta Kacher.

Interesting that is appears JBB is one of the owners. He is someone who really could have used CPL back in the day

Love it.  First Islander in the league.  I have known about this for about a week now but was told in confidence so couldn't say anything.

Super excited.  Ordered my HFX jersey during the Black Friday sale so I know whose name is going on the back.

Played against him in the first division indoor league one year and he was a terror to defend.  I remember he hammered a ball that I blocked and it left the hexagonal ball pattern on my side for a few days.  Really looking forward to seeing what he can do in the league.

Love these types of signings because this is the type of player who likely never would have gotten a shot at becoming a professional footballer prior the CPL. Exciting times for Canadian soccer. He was no doubt a dominant player at the amateur levels so it will be interesting to see what he can do at the pro level. 

The squad has a nice young core leading into the new year. Would like to see the roster rounded out with a few more guys resigned like N’Sa, Arnone, Bona and Kourrouma. Excited to see what players come in at the top end of the roster as promised. Hope we’re in play for Giguere and some of the other Fury standouts.

Any word on the Ecuadorian Carlos Garcés mentioned earlier or is that one a complete pipe dream?

Did he play anywhere in the summer?

He played with PEI FC.  They are the Island's top team and they play in the New Brunswick Premier League (their top provincial competition).  Historically, that team has also played in the NS premier division.  Before that he was a top collegiate player for the Holland College Hurricanes.

N’sa was great last year! Loved seeing him sprint from centre field and pull off a slide tackle at the top of the 18 on a guy who had 10-15 yards on him.
 

Excited to see him pair up at Schaale, if he comes back like has been rumoured.

I like it, loads of potential, positionally flexible and he'll still be an U21 player next year.

Definitely a u23 CMNT contender
