Terry Dunfield’s soccer journey will take him to Edmonton.
The veteran Canadian midfielder’s trial with the Eddies has been successful — coach Colin Miller confirmed that Dunfield will sign with the club. Dunfield trained with the Eddies at Clarke Field Tuesday after arriving in the city Monday night. He joined the team on trial while the Eddies were on their Scottish tour, and played in games against Newcastle United’s youth team and Queen’s Park.
“Terry is going to sign with us,” said FCE coach Colin Miller. “I’m delighted with that. He still has to be approved by the league and so on and so forth, but I’ve worked with Terry both at the Whitecaps and with the national team, and I know all about him. I know his history, I know the qualities that he brings to the club. He’s a leader, he’s an experienced professional player and he’s top levels of the game for a number of years. He will add a great deal to the group.”
Miller compared Dunfield to Nik Ledgerwood, another Canadian national-team veteran who signed with the Eddies in the off-season.
