The Vancouver Whitecaps FC2 inaugural United Soccer League (USL) season was memorable for many reasons, but the professional debuts made by a number of young Canadian players, who all graduated from the Whitecaps' residency program, is a yet another exciting development of local players working their way up into the ranks of professional soccer.
On Friday morning the Whitecaps announced that the club will be bringing back (M) Terran Campbell, (D) Kaiden Chung, (M) Thomas Gardner, (D) Jordan Haynes and (D) Chris Serban for WFC2's 2016 USL season, which is set to kick off in the early spring.
"We've built a great core of young Canadians at the club, including these five players who have already made their professional debuts while still in their teens," said Koch. "There will be a number of additional returning players, as well as new additions which will strengthen the group going into our second season."
WFC2 finished the 2015 season in 11th place in the USL Western Conference with a record of W8-L14-D6.
