Campbell and Baldisimo saw their playing time in USL plummet after the Vancouver Whitecaps chose to shutter their WFC2 program and instead affiliate with the expansion side, Fresno FC, in 2018. In 2017, with WFC2, Baldisimo got into 23 USL matches, playing a total of 1,187 minutes. Campbell played 1,788 minutes over 25 matches. Compare that to 2018 in Fresno: Baldisimo played just 264 minutes over three games. And Campbell played a total of a whopping 43 minutes over five substitute appearances. Before heading to Bulgaria, Hojabrpour was with the Whitecaps residency. “These three are solid young players in their age group and we are glad to have them join us to continue their careers back in Canada, ” said Michael Silberbauer, head coach of Pacific FC, in a release issued by the club. “They bring energy and excitement to our growing team.” Baldisimo captained the Canadian U-17 team in 2015 at the CONCACAF Championships.
