A pair of standouts from Saskatchewan, a former member of the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency and a Canadian with an impressive NCAA resume are some of the additions who have been confirmed for FC Edmonton’s combine.

The combine, which runs Nov. 28-30 at the Commonwealth Stadium fitness centre, will see more than 40 free-agent prospects put through their paces by the FC Edmonton brass, which will include a new head coach. An announcement on a head coach is expected before the combine is held.

Former Whitecaps’ Residency prospect Coulton Jackson will come to Edmonton for the combine. Jackson, a striker, represented Canada at the 2009 CONCACAF U-17 Championship and at the 2011 CONCACAF U-20 Championship. Jackson played in nine games for the Whitecaps U-23 side in PDL action this past season, and scored five times and added three assists.

Toronto native Jarrett Hamilton, another striker, has also punched his combine ticket. In 2011, Hamilton finished as the second-leading scorer for the Oral Roberts University squad, netting six goals and an assist in 19 matches — all of them starts.

Jonatton Cordoba, a former CIS All-Star, enjoyed a standout season at Fort McMurray’s Keyano College. His Keyano teammate, Alex Eby, already confirmed as an FC Edmonton trialist, so that means two players from the school will be looking to make it to the NASL. In the past, FCE assistant coach Jeff Paulus, who also runs the program at NAIT, has said that he thinks some of the top college prospects in Canada deserve shots at pro careers, and with these invites to Keyano players, it’s a sign that the club will be true to that philosophy.

The Saskatchewan pair of Tyson Pahsaknunk and Cody Kahpeaysewat will also at the combine. Pahsaknunk is only 18, but scored 32 times in 2010 for the Cando senior soccer squad, which won the seven-vs.-seven Saskatchewan title. Pahsaknunk was also part of Saskatoon’s Native Sons Soccer Club, which has exposed First Nations prospects to international competition. Kahpeaysewat, who was a torchbearer in the run up to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympics, was one of the the top scorers in Saskatoon’s men’s soccer league in 2012, scoring 13 times for Eclipse NBD. He’s a past Golden Boot winner in the Battlefords Senior Soccer Association.
