Toronto, ON (February 27, 2020) – York9 FC has not had to look too far to make their latest signing.
Box-to-box midfielder Max Ferrari has made the switch from Aurora FC and signed for the Nine Stripes.
The 19-year-old made 15 appearances last season, amassing almost 1,200 playing minutes in League1 Ontario, as the Yellow and Black finished 10th.
He will aim to follow in the footsteps of Morey Doner, who made the right-back spot his own last year, stepping up from Aurora FC and establishing himself as an integral part of Jimmy Brennan’s side.
Head coach Brennan said: “I’ve known Max for a long time and it’s great to have him on board. He was sitting in the stands last year watching York9, and this year he’s going to be wearing our jersey this year. It’s great for the club, the region, and for Aurora to produce another talented young kid.
“He has a good understanding of the game and great potential: he’s got pace and wants to take players on. He has the right tools and we’ve just got to refine them and get him to understand the game a little bit more in a positional sense.
“It’s fantastic that he’s now broken into the pro environment, especially with York9, his local pro club. We’re excited for Max but for ourselves, too – having a local boy out of the York Region signing for the club is positive for everyone.”
Ferrari added: “I’ve known Jimmy for a long time, playing for a coach I’ve known since I was about 7 years old is amazing. I think this team can do great things this season.”
