With Keepers Fit, York United Ends Adisa De Rosario Loan
With Niko Giantsopoulos and Elias Himaras back to full training with York United, the club has confirmed that TFC2 loanee Adisa De Rosario has returned to his parent club.
The 18-year-old enjoyed a spell of four matches between the sticks for the Nine Stripes, helping the club put 360 much-needed domestic U-21 minutes in the bank during the final stretch of the season.
“Adisa helped us weather a difficult period when it came to our goalkeeping situation,” said Club President Ancgus McNab. “We thank him for his contributions to our club during that time.”
The club recorded two wins, one draw, and one loss with the teenager between the sticks, with a phenomenal one-on-one save against Joao Morelli proving a big highlight for the keeper’s loan spell, along with a penalty stop against Forge and this huge save in his last match against Valour.
The 18-year-old MLS NEXT Pro prospect has made three starts for TFC2 prior to the loan spell, having secured a rise up from the TFC Academy and featuring in a Canada U-20 camp ahead of the Concacaf U-20 Championship, too.
The younger brother of Osaze De Rosario had a previous stint in the Canadian Premier League last season, joining the Halifax Wanderers on a developmental deal last season and featuring in a one-nil loss to Forge.
The club has a tough choice in now fielding the more experience Giantsopoulos in a bid to maximize points at this stage in the playoff race, or selecting domestic U-21 minute earner Eleias Himaras now that he’s recovered from surgery.
