Wishing Luck to NFSC - NIAGARA FC's 2008 Boys at Ontario Soccer Provincial Xcel Trials this Weekend!

By Christina Stranges, 03/12/22, 11:45AM EST


Another weekend and another 4 of  NFSC - NIAGARA FC OPDL's players from the 2008 Boys team will be attending the Ontario Soccer Provincial XCEL Trials in Toronto at BMO Field!

Jack McPherson, Jonah Bello, Barron Walker, and Miguel Pineros  have been selected to attend the Ontario Soccer PROVINCIAL XCEL Trials being held on Sunday, March 13th. 

The Ontario Provincial Development League (OPDL) is one of the primary programs in which potential Provincial Team players are identified. 20 players for each age and gender division will be selected over the course of the next few weeks. 

Jonah, Jack, Miguel, and Barron, along with the other 7 NIAGARA FC players who attended the Trials in the previous weekends, will await notification which will come in April.  Selected players will continue to participate in the PROVINCIAL XCEL Prepatory weekends which will commence at the end of April.  Within these events, Canada Soccer's National Team Staff will be in attendance to identify players for their NATIONAL EXCEL Programs! 

These boys have worked hard throughout the 2021 season and earned their spot for this amazing opportunity!  We are so glad to be able to provide this pathway for them and all the players via the OPDL Program and St. Catharines Club Roma Soccer Club's League 1 here in Niagara!

Good Luck again to all!!  GO NIAGARA GO!!!
