For­mer ACAA star Sanoh signs deal

The Chronicle Herald (Provincial) - - SPORTS -

For­mer Holland Col­lege Hurricane Ibra Sanoh has signed with HFX Wan­der­ers FC of the Cana­dian Premier League.

The six-foot-two striker from Con­akry, Guinea, dom­i­nated the At­lantic Col­le­giate Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion men's soc­cer league.

The 25-year-old Char­lot­te­town res­i­dent scored 101 goals in 70 games with the Hur­ri­canes. He was named the At­lantic Col­le­giate Ath­letic As­so­ci­a­tion player of the year four times and earned the Cana­dian award in 2017, his fi­nal sea­son, when he scored 31 times in 14 games.

“It's a dream come true be­cause it was al­ways my dream to play pro­fes­sional soc­cer,” Sanoh said for a story on the Wan­der­ers web­site.

Sanoh starred in a 2018 ex­hi­bi­tion match for Stephen Hart's At­lantic Se­lects against Ger­man un­der-21 side Fortuna Düs­sel­dorf, be­fore the CPL had even started.

Wan­der­ers vice-pres­i­dent of foot­ball op­er­a­tions Matt Fe­gan said they have been talk­ing to him since the game as the team waited for Sanoh to get his Cana­dian per­ma­nent res­i­dency.

He will be a do­mes­tic player for the Wan­der­ers.
