After three years out on the Isle as Pacific FC’s number one goalkeeper, Callum Irving is moving on – though he’ll be staying close to home if the rumours are true.

Irving had made 69 appearances for the Tridents since arriving in 2020, recording 22 clean sheets across all competitions. He helped the side to a league title in 2021, and had made 33 appearances for the Tridents this year, finishing tied for third-most clean sheets in the league with nine.

He also earned two golden glove nominations from those three seasons, too.

“We thank you for your leadership on and off the pitch, and for being an integral part of Pacific’s success through our 2021 Championship season and 2022 Concacaf run, and three seasons in stellar goalkeeping,” said the club.

Before landing in the Canadian Premier League, Irving had made nearly eighty combined appearances in the USL with Rio Grande Valley and the Ottawa Fury, having spent time developing with the Whitecaps Academy prior to that. The Vancouver-born athlete has made one appearance for the men’s national team, completing a 4-2 win over Bermuda in 2017.

There’s a goalkeeping shake-up occurring out in Langford, with goalkeeper coach Mark Village also departing. That being said, the club has returned young prospect Emil Gazdov between the sticks.

It’s unclear where Irving will land next, through it wouldn’t be a shock to see if both he and Village have landed roles with neighbouring expansion side Vancouver FC. To that end, Manuel Veth has now reported that that’ll be Irving’s next destination.

That being said, with Halifax down to zero goalkeepers and both of York United’s shotstoppers on club options, there’s a few places he could end up.
