Pacific FC Brings In Defender Duran Lee

Canadian Premier League side Pacific FC has announced the signing of defender Duran Lee, who becomes the first Canadian Premier League athlete to play for three different CPL sides.

The 25-year-old Torontonian first made the jump up the Canadian Premier League level after impressing against the Halifax Wanderers for the Vaughan Azzurri in a Canadian Championship bout, with the east coast side bringing him in to fill in for centre-back Peter Schaale later on in the season.

Last year saw Lee rejoin the league with FC Edmonton, where he made two appearances as a backup left-back at The Island Games. With the recent retirement of Marcel de Jong, it wouldn’t be surprising to see him fill in out left this year, too.

Duran is a player with good physical attributes and the versatility to play left and centre back. I am looking forward to seeing him continue his development with our club.

The six-foot-two athlete isn’t the only domestic defender to have joined Pacific FC this month, with the club also having brought in former Atletico Ottawa full-back Kunle Dada-Luke last week.

Pacific FC now has twenty players rostered for the 2021 Canadian Premier League season, four of whom are new: Duran Lee, Kunle Dada-Luke, Manny Aparicio and Matteo Polisi.

Pacific FC did not disclose the length or financial details of Lee’s contract.
