FC Edmonton has 13 “verbal agreements” in place with players By Steven Sandor Posted on November 13, 2018 1 0 274 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Jeff Paulus PHOTO: DALE MACMILLAN/FC EDMONTON FCE coach Jeff Paulus said he hopes that the team will be able to announce some player signings by the end of November. But he said that the team has 13 “verbal agreements” in place with players who want to be with the club when it kicks off play in the Canadian Premier League in late April of 2019. He said that not all of the 13 are Canadians. “Other coaches are talking to players from all over, I am talking to the players who I know,” he said. Paulus said he’s been in contact with many former NASL players, many of whom didn’t play for the Eddies, but know the team from coming to Clarke Stadium as visitors. These are players he would have spoken to post-game, shaken hands with — and some are showing interest in joining FCE when it comes to the Canadian Premier League kickoff.
