Veteran Sierra Leone International, John Trye, is hoping the depth of talent and experience in the Scarborough SC squad can help them lift the Canadian soccer league title on Saturday.
Trye’s Scarborough will take on FC Vorkuta in the overall Canadian first league final at the Centennial Park on Saturday, October 13.
The 33-year-old goalie has been instrumental this season in Kiril Dimitrov’s first team.
“I am really excited and looking forward to playing in the final on Saturday, winning the league title will mean everything and a dream come true,” Trye told FSL
“A victory for us will mean I get to lift the first title in my career and I guess is not a bad way to end the season.”
The former ASA Charge man added, “I know we have many talented players. However, we have to play well throughout the match and take our chances if we are to be champions.”
An Aleksander Stojiljkovic goal gave Scarborough a 2-1 win over FC Ukraine United in last week’s the semi-final play-offs.
Trye, who joined the club 2016 was also part of the Green and Black side that lost last year’s finals to York Region Shooters 5-4 on penalties.
The 2016 season marked the first time Scarborough qualified for the postseason by finishing third and posting the third-best defensive record.
Their playoff run was cut short after a 3-0 defeat to Hamilton City SC.
Meanwhile, Tyre was the goalie for Sierra Leone when they lost to DR Congo 3-1 in their final Group D, African Cup of Nations qualifying match at the Stade Tata Raphaël in November 2014.
