Forge Adds Two Depth Options Ahead Of Opening Weekend
Three-time CPL champions Forge FC are adding two domestic players just one day ahead of the club’s opening match of the season.
In is 17-year-old midfielder Khadim Kane and 23-year-old defender Malcolm Duncan, two domestic products who give the league’s most consistent year-to-year roster some extra depth.
Kane arrives as a fresh-faced youth prospect from CF Montreal, where he suited up for the club’s U-23 in the PLSQ. Standing at six-foot-three, the St. Laurent-born talent is now the club’s youngest play on its master roster.
He’s also the younger brother of Vancouver FC striker Mamadou Kane, who arrived to the league last season and played for both York United and FC Edmonton.
His arrival as the third domestic U-21 player makes the club roster compliant, with Kwasi Poku and Sebastian Castello also on the books.
Duncan is no stranger to accepting the call from Bobby Smyrniotis, having appeared on a short-term deal last season and earning a few minutes as a late game substitute against Pacific and Halifax.
The Toronto-born defender hails from the Sigma FC system, having also made some 86 appearances for Providence College throughout five seasons.
Forge FC will kick off its fifth season against Cavalry FC at home tomorrow.
