Veth: Nine Stripes Set To Sign Sturing
Northern Tribune has now independently verified this signing as well – the original article continues as below:
The 26-year-old defender has been without a club since leaving Austrian side SV Horn in the summer, having been twice-capped by the Canadian national team back in 2021.
Born in Nijmegen, Sturing proceed through the academy of local side NEC before making his professional debut in 2017. He spent three years with the club before leaving for rival side Den Bosch before landing with SV Horn in 2021.
He had also represented the Netherlands at the youth level before cap-tying himself for Canada in a World Cup Qualifier against the Cayman Islands, also featuring in a seven-nil win over Aruba before falling out of the Canadian national team roster.
He’s a player who would offer Martin Nash some options that fit the shape being played, with the centre-back capable of shifting upwards as a defensive midfielder as needed.
It was previously reported by Veth that both Cavalry and York United had been in the hunt to sign the free agent defender. Pacific was previously in the hunt for Sturing but couldn’t make their budget needs work.
While York United has yet to comment on the signing of Frank Sturing, fans of the club will certainly be hopeful that the news of defender’s arrival rings true.
