Thunder Bay Chill Adds Former CPL Prospect Felix N’sa

By on March 14, 2024 0 1537 Views

Felix N’sa is heading to Thunder Bay to continue his footballing career.

The 20-year-old defender had spent two seasons in the CPL with York United, the latter of which saw him loaned to FC Edmonton for the 2022 CPL season. Having also once trialed with Pacific FC, he now embarks to USL2 to test himself outside the borders of the professional game.

Felix recorded just one appearance during his two seasons in the Canadian Premier League, coming off the bench to make his professional debut in FC Edmonton’s final club match, after which York United opted not to trigger a club option for 2023. He’d missed that first season with York United through injury, though at the time he’d been described as a signing for the future.

The younger brother of Chrisnovic N’sa, Felix will offer versatility to Thunder Bay’s backline: he’s comfortable playing all across the backline, and at lower levels had even played as a six. It’s still unclear where the Chill will opt to play him, though at this stage of career the biggest thing Felix needs is minutes.

Felix becomes the twelth new player to sign for the Thunder Bay Chill ahead of the 2024 USL2 season, which will kick off in late May against Wisconsin’s Bavarian United. There’ll be one less Canadian team in USL2 ranks this year, with FC Manitoba quietly dropping out from the ranks.

The club recently added no less than seven international recruits from Europe, while also bringing in a quartet of Canadians from the University of Lethbridge.

The Thunder Bay Chill topped the USL2’s Deep North Division last season, winning 9 of their 12 regular season matches. The bested AFC Ann Arbor in the conference quarter-finals, but fell to the Des Moines Menace in a match that required extra time.

While it remains to be seen if the Montreal-born baller will get minutes out in The Bay, it’ll be a crucial part of his development – particularly with his stint in the CPL having already unfolded.
