York9 - Season Thread 2020

Recommended Posts

Could it be from the secret draft?? Or might it be a sign that the Knights templar were on the island??  And what do the mysterious tree branches found near the money pit signify??  Could there be a buried treasure ship in the swamp?? Tune in for the next 5 years and we will be no closer to the truth.

He'll be 24 by the time the season starts:

but I guess there was a range of different age limits being rumoured and he would still only be 25 going into an option year. He was one of the players that was mentioned in the original newspaper story:

http://jamaica-gleaner.com/article/sports/20191220/four-rspl-players-canada-pl-draft

Cavalier’s attackers Alex Thomas, and Nicholas Hamilton, Mount Pleasant midfielder Kevaughn Isaacs, and Molynes United’s Nicholas Nelson could be plying their trade overseas as they have been entered into the Canadian Premier League (CPL) draft, which is scheduled for today in Toronto...

http://www.rjrnewsonline.com/sports/marshall-drafted-by-canadian-premier-league-outfit

Jamaican international and Cavalier forward Alex Marshall has been drafted by Halifax FC in the Canadian Premier League for the 2020 season which kicks off in April... It's understood that the 21 year old Marshall along with another Cavalier forward, nicholas hamilton who was picked up in the draft by a Toronto-based team were spotted by scouts during a match between Cavalier and Mount Pleasant Academy. Kevaughn Isaacs from Mount Pleasant along with Nicholas Nelson from Molynes United went undrafted.

Not really news...

Can't say I'm shocked... They dropped the ball in marketing...Most of North York have no clue the team even exists

They made a big mistake not commiting to north York. Why would you get attached to y9 when they came out and said they would be moving somewhere like Markham in 2-3 years.

Ingham

Doner Luca Thompson abzi

Porter mannella Manny

Petrasso Adjei Hamilton 

 

Likely starting 11? 

 

Gattas would be nice to have or a similar player. Lots of depth in midfield. Simeon Jackson would be a nice fit up front.

A shame on Gattas as I liked him, but glad we are keeping Murofushi, i really thought he had some quality, had good positioning, vision and worked hard on the pitch. Really hoping Y9 push on this season, but Forge and Cavalry still seem to be ahead of the pack and I have this feeling HFX will be up there.

2019 York 9 FC assistant coach Sergio Deluca returns to Vaughan Soccer Club to take up position as technical director.  Remember Carmen Isacco has already left.     On the plus side York 9 has added Paul Stalteri.

The Green Lions Bridge Student Gap as Y9’s Youthful Supporters Group

https://canpl.ca/article/the-green-lions-bridge-student-gap-as-y9s-youthful-supporters-group

Zach Diaz is in an ideal situation as a soccer-loving student at York University. How many students, after all, have a professional club on campus?

So, when he moved on campus last Fall, he decided to organize “the Green Lions,” a student-run supporters group dedicated to Y9 and spreading the word on campus about the team.

“There’s no direct connection between the club and the university and my idea was to create a supporters group that would create one.”

I think york9 is starting to make better decisions. They are now on freeing students from York season tickets for just 125 and Jerseys for 20. 

As a doctoral student, tempting to get $65 back with this deal (I already renewed), but I should probably just support the club. Wouldn't mind $20 for the jersey though.

Friend and I were talking about Y9's marketing efforts last year, we brainstormed real quick, and came up with some new potential places for Y9 to market to for this year. Last year seemed to be a heavy focus on York Region youth clubs and Vaughan Mills, along with some festivals throughout the region. 

We've already said some of these places many times over the last year, but always worth repeating, since it's such a crucial aspect of getting more fans into York Lions Stadium. Some new potential places to market to include transit such as TTC and VIVA, malls such as Yorkdale, Markville, Hillcrest, Promenade and Fairview, festivals at Downsview, Unionville, Mel Lastman and etc, and youth clubs in Brampton & North York.

The new SG that sprouted up out York U is fantastic btw.

Looks like Petrasso and Mo Baouli are with Y9 in camp. 

I wonder when Hamilton from Jamaica will join the team?

Doner-Luca-Thompson-Abzi

Murufushi-Manella-Manny

Petrasso-Adjei-Hamilton

Starting to look like a decent team. I could see Porter starting at RW or RM. Maybe add one more winger/striker and they def need to add a u21 defender or two.

Cool, did you physically see them at the camp? Or just based on Nef's tweet?

Nef is legit, appreciate his work. 

 

Would Adjei or mo start ?

I think it’s a bit premature to consider that. He’s just at camp, not sure if that means that he’s been signed or is instead on trial. I’m not sure if he’s any better than what we’ve got.

Hopefully this guy can do whatever is needed to bring more fans out to games and get a stadium plan with a date and location determined and made public. If he can do those two things I would consider that a very successful year.

I don't get why they need another stadium?
