FC Edmonton confirms Keyano College standout, Ugandan national teamer for upcoming combine


FC Edmonton has confirmed the names of three more players who will be attending the club’s combine Nov. 28-30 at the Commonwealth Stadium fitness facility.

The club has sent out 50 invites to free agents, looking to target unsigned talent for the 2013 NASL season. Dever Orgill, a former Jamaican U-20 player and member of the Vancouver Whitecaps Residency, was the first player to accept an invite. Orgill has been playing amateur soccer in Vancouver.

Now, the club has confirmed that Simone Orlandi, Ugandan national teamer Simon Serunkuma and Alex Eby will join Orgill at the combine.

Orlandi is a striker who has played with the York Region Shooters of the Canadian Soccer League.

Serunkuma is a midfielder who was once the most expensive signing in the history of the Ugandan league. He played for SC Villa, the country’s most famous team, but was sold to rival Bunamwaya SC in January 2012 for a fee that was about half of what Villa had paid to get him. He has appeared for the Ugandan national side. Check out the highlight reel:

And Eby, from Stratford, Ont., traveled to England to try and make his fortune (think of Jay DeMerit, a young North American going to England to try and make a break for himself). And Eby became well-known as a street dribbler, good enough that he became the star of a 2010 Nike commercial (featured below). Eby then returned to Canada and has been playing for Keyano College, where he scored nine goals in 10 ACAC games.
