Cavalry FC signs fullback Nicolas Apostol; U-SPORTS pick Daniel Kaiser departs
Cavalry FC

Cavalry FC has signed Nicolas Apostol to their roster for the remainder of the 2021 Canadian Premier League Season.

The 22-year-old Apostol, hailing from Surrey, British Columbia, is a product of the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency Program. After joining the program in 2011, he went on to play for the club at the U-15, U-16, and U-18 levels.  In 2016, Apostol was called up to the Whitecaps FC 2 for a two-match Texas road trip, where he made his professional debut at San Antonio FC.

Most recently, Apostol joined the Whitecaps FC U-23 team this year. He comes to Cavalry to replace Daniel Kaiser, who has returned to university following the completion of his U-SPORTS agreement. Kaiser, who was chosen by Cavalry in the 2021 CPL-U SPORTS Draft, made 11 appearances for the club.

“Nic is a very good full-back that adds depth and coverage to our side in that position following the outgoing of Daniel Kaiser,” coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. said. “He is athletic and technical, with very good 1 v 1 ability on both sides of the ball.”
