Forge Recruits Two More Sigma Teenagers
In a sparse matchday announcement this afternoon, reigning Canadian Premier League champions Forge FC revealed that it had signed two teenage Sigma FC products to developmental contracts.
The first of the new arrivals for the Hamilton-based side is midfielder Sebastian Castello, a 17-year-old who can play on the left wing or in a central attacking role. He’s been with the club’s League1 Ontario affiliate for almost eight years now after developing with the RVDL Lions.
The second of the duo is 16-year-old Marcus Caldeira, a forward who hails from Mississauga and appears to have been with Sigma for at least the last two seasons or so.
The Canadian Premier League side had added a trio of Sigma FC products ahead of the 2021 Canadian Premier League season, while two-year Forge forward Kadell Thomas ultimately went the other direction.
Forge FC currently finds itself in fourth place after the conclusion of the bubbled start to the 2021 Canadian Premier League season, with the side set to take on rival club York United tonight in front of a sellout crowd at York Lions Stadium, with COVID-19 safety restrictions in place.
The club will then play its first home match in a reverse fixture next Wednesday following some Concacaf League fixture rescheduling, with the club’s formal celebration of last year’s North Star Shield title defense set to take place ahead of its home game against Atletico Ottawa next Saturday.
