Bermudan Reggie Lambe should be TFC’s new project player

Comments Off on Bermudan Reggie Lambe should be TFC’s new project player

Midfielder Reggie Lambe will look to rebuild his soccer career as a member of Toronto FC. The speedy winger was signed by the club Wednesday.

“We are very happy to add a young and talented player like Reggie Lambe,” said Toronto FC Head Coach and Technical Director Aron Winter in a release. “Reggie is a dangerous winger with a great amount of speed and ability. He will be an important player and will fit in well with our club.”

Lambe, 20, has 12 caps for Bermuda and has scored four times for the U.K. territory (Bermuda has its own football federation and does compete internationally, even though it is not a country).

In 2007, Lambe signed a deal to join Ipswich Town, where he spent his time in the youth and reserve squads. According to the Bernews, Ipswich let Lambe know during the 2010-11 campaign that he wasn’t going to be re-signed. He was loaned out to Bristol Rovers, given the chance to impress brass there. But he wasn’t signed when the loan expired. He played seven times for Rovers, most of them off-the-bench appearances.

But Lambe can represent another raw talent that Winter can try to mold to fit the pass-and-move game he is trying to bring to TFC. In Richard Eckersley, Toronto FC supporters found a fan favourite in a player who couldn’t get playing time in England’s lower divisions, just like Lambe.

It’s unclear if Eckersley will be back next season or not — but Winter had some success in working with Eckersley, so he will see if history can repeat itself with Lambe.
