Midfielder Trivine Esprit will spend a second season with York United, with the club confirming he’s now inked a U SPORTS deal ahead of this afternoon’s 905 Derby.

The 22-year-old Scarborough native was drafted by the team last year, going on to make eleven appearances through the season after extending his stay beyond the U SPORTS deadline. He brought plenty of energy when called upon, earning three starts under Martin Nash.

“Trivine has already contributed plenty to the squad so we’re delighted to get him back,” says head coach Martin Nash.

Trivine had been with club for preseason fighting for a contract space, coming to terms alongside 2024 draft pickChristian Zeppieri. The club had also taken a close look at draft pick Jason Hartill and former United Academy standout Shola Jimoh, too.

“He’s got a terrific attitude and he’s great to have around the group. It was impressive the way he slotted in to the side last season when we were up against it with injuries and suspensions. He carried the weight and responsibility really well and delivered for us, and we all look forward to watching him grow even more in 2024,” adds Nash.

A solid depth piece for the right side, Esprit had also impressed for both the Ridgebacks and in League1 Ontario, seeing action with expansion side Simcoe County Rovers with a spell at Unionville Milliken SC afterwards. He’s still got room to develop, but looks a player who could certainly be an understated pickup heading in the new season.

York United will be looking to kick off its first home match under new ownership with a bang – and what better way to do so then against league rivals Forge FC. Fans can tune into the game on OneSoccer, fuboTV, or Telus Optik Channel 980 at 4:00PM EST.
