Horace James signs deal with the Eddies


Horace James scored against FC Edmonton last season. Now, the former Atlanta Silverback hopes to score a lot of goals for FC Edmonton in 2014.

After a two-week trial in Edmonton, the Jamaican speedster has signed a contract with the NASL club. The signing leaves the Eddies with one remaining international slot that the club can fill.

James offers a speedy option up front; previously, coach Colin Miller praised James’s speed, saying the Jamaican “runs like a deer.”

Will that spot go to Irish international Caleb Folan? The former Colorado Rapid returned to the United Kingdom this week to attend to personal matters; the club knew that Folan, who was on trial last week with the Eddies, would only be in Edmonton for a few days. There’s no word if he’ll be back or not, but the club confirmed that he was offered a contract.

    Nice to see the Eddies build up the roster before heading to Vancouver to continue the preseason. Little confused as to why it is another midfielder. The team had plenty of quality service to the forwards last year,the problem was the finishing displayed up front by the forwards. Need a striker or two that can finish.
