Forge FC announced Thursday that the club has signed teenage midfielder Johnny Son (pictured) and added two development players, including defender Santiago Frias (FREE-uhs) and attacker Robbie Cleary.
“We are very happy to have Johnny join our club,” said Forge FC Director of Football Costa Smyrniotis. “He is a young player with considerable upside and we look forward to supporting his continued development in Hamilton.”
Son, 18, comes from the youth of Sigma FC where he has developed since the age of 11 and competed all the way up to the Sigma first team in League1 Ontario play. The 5-11 native of Oakville, Ontario’s multi-year deal with Forge FC marks his first professional soccer contract.
Frias, 18, is a 6-4 defender from Oakville, Ontario, while Cleary, 18, is a 6-0 attacker from Burlington, Ontario. Both are youth players from Sigma FC who will be added to the Forge FC roster as development players.
