And that’s play a league game in front of family and friends. Aparicio, unveiled by York 9 on Monday, spent three years on the books of Toronto FC’s senior squad (2013-15), but didn’t appear in a single MLS match. Aparicio has spent the previous three years in Spain, playing with SD Ordenes, CD Izarra and CD San Roque de Lepe. Aparicio has one senior men’s national-team cap; he played two minutes of a 2014 friendly against Colombia. He represented Canada at the 2015 Pan Am Games and played for the U-20 side at the 2015 CONCACAF Championship. Aparicio and York 9 Coach and Technical Director Jim Brennan know each other from TFC’s Academy. Aparicio was signed to a senior TFC contract in 2013 out of the academy.
