    Four Trinidad and Tobago footballers have been signed by HFX Wanderers FC for the inaugural year of Canadian Premier League.

    Goalkeeper Jan-Michael Williams, midfielders Andre Rampersad and Elton John and forward Akeem Garcia have been snapped up by the club’s head coach and former T&T head coach Stephen Hart.

    All four players have won national championships and three of them have played on the international stage for their home country.

    Hart says, “I’m delighted because we have a group of players who are familiar with each other and basically they play down the middle of the park, so I think that’s very important”.

    The four new international players join the Wanderers first signing, defender Zachary Sukunda, who was announced by the club last November.

    Three prospects chosen in the University draft, Peter Schaale, André Bona and Christian Oxner will also have the chance to fight for contracts in preseason trials.
