Former ACAA star Sanoh signs deal
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.
