Lexington Lands Former Eddies Full-Back Terique Mohammed
Another FC Edmonton athlete has found their next club for the upcoming season.
Today saw USL League One side Lexington Sports Club confirm its acquisition of Terique Mohammed, who’s second stint with FC Edmonton saw him make 22 appearances throughout the club’s final campaign.
He now embarks on an exciting moment in North American soccer history, with Lexington SC poised to begin its first-ever campaign in a matter of months.
“Terique is a box-to-box, modern day fullback that has excellent energy and pace,” said LSC head coach Sam Stockley. “He can break lines and brings a great end product in the final third. He’s played in this league and has been in big environments while in Toronto and Edmonton; adding that experience along with his hugely competitive and winning mentality will be invaluable to our team.”
Mohammed turned professional with Toronto FC II in 2018, featuring regularly for the side before undergoing a loan to FC Edmonton for the 2020’s pandemic-impacted bubble season.
He featured in five of Edmonton’s seven matches, collecting a red card in the Al Classico derby but then contributing a fine assist against Valour FC upon his return from suspension.
The left-back then signed on with Dundalk FC, who loaned him to Athlone Town before he returned to CPL pastures as a fill-in for York United. He earned nine straight appearances for the Nine Stripes before being sidelined through injury, signing on with FC Edmonton instead last year.
The Toronto-born defender hopes to set the standard with Lexington SC, where he counts himself amongst the squad’s inaugural members ahead of their debut campaign.
“First impressions are major,” said Terique. “Many eyes will be on us as people’s curiosity grows to see how we will adapt to the level of this league.”
He becomes the third former FC Edmonton player to secure his next move over the last week or so, with Bicou Bissainthe landing in Vietnam and Marcus Simmons moving westwards to Vancouver FC.
