Dever Orgill, a Jamaican striker who featured for the Vancouver Whitecaps residency, is the first confirmed trialist who will come to FC Edmonton’s player combine in late November.

FCE, which is still searching for a new head coach after finishing dead last in the NASL in 2012, will host a player combine Nov. 28-30 at the indoor fields in the Commonwealth Stadium complex. Just under 50 players — most of them Canadian or who have been linked to Canadian teams in the past — will be at the camp.

Dever Orgill

Orgill played with the Whitecaps residency between 2008-2010, but was released after suffering a knee injury. Orgill played in the 2009 Voyageurs’ Cup, coming on as an 87th minute sub in a 1-0 win over the Montreal Impact.

He has featured for the Jamaican U-20 team. As a member of the U-15 team, he won the Golden Boot at the Caribbean Football Union championship, scoring 12 times in six games.

After leaving the Whitecaps, Orgill went back to Jamaica, where he has featured as a striker for St. George’s SC.

    Would be nice to see Philippe Davies at the combine. Could be a game changer for FCE

    More recently, Orgill has been playing in the Vancouver Metro league, and for what it’s worth, leading it in scoring… http://www.vmslsoccer.com/prem_top_goal.html

    Also, I think he was released from the ‘Caps after an intra-squad disciplinary issue… don’t remember the details, but something about hard tackles in training.

    Good luck to him.
