Cavalry FC extend Sergio Camargo and Joe Mason

Cavalry FC announced Thursday that the club has extended the contracts of midfielder Sergio Camargo and forward Joe Mason. Camargo has signed a two-year extension for the 2023 and 2024 seasons, whilst the club has activated their 2023 option for Mason.

As one of the club’s inaugural players having signed in 2019, Sergio Camargo will be suiting up for his fifth season with Cavalry. Camargo previously led the club in goals scored, having scored 15 goals, and providing seven assists in 69 appearances across all competitions.

Both goals contributed to the club’s biggest scorelines this past season in matches against both Valour FC and Halifax Wanderers.

Camargo, a 28-year-old Toronto native, joined the Calgary side for its first season after spending a season in the city playing for the Foothills. He was a key component of the club’s dominant 2019 regular season run, and has been one of Cavalry’s top creative weapons since although injuries kept him out of the regular starting XI for long stretches of 2022 — including, unfortunately, the final 10 games of the year.

Mason, meanwhile, enters his third season and is now the club’s leading goalscorer, having 16 goals and two assists in 38 appearances across all competitions after joining the club in 2021. The English-born striker scored eight goals and provided one assist in 2022 in 22 appearances throughout the season.

He led Cavalry in goals both of the last two seasons despite missing games due to injury both years, and will continue to be a major focal point at the front of their attack.

The 31-year-old came to the CPL with one of the league’s most impressive resumes, having played previously played 185 games in the EFL Championship for several clubs including Wolverhampton Wanderers and Cardiff City.

Cavalry now have 17 players confirmed for their 2023 roster, including 14 players returning from last year’s squad.
