Emery Welshman recalled, released by FC Cincinnati

HAMILTON – Forge FC announced Friday Canadian forward Emery Welshman has been recalled from loan by Major League Soccer’s FC Cincinnati.

Welshman and FC Cincinnati have mutually agreed to a contract termination in order for the forward to pursue other international professional playing opportunities.

“Emery is a true professional and has been a big part of our success here in Hamilton so far this season,” said Bobby Smyrniotis, Technical Director and Head Coach of Forge FC. “By showcasing his talents in the Canadian Premier League these last four months, doors have opened for him. We wish him nothing but success in this next step in his career.”

Welshman, 27, joined Forge FC on loan from FC Cincinnati March 8.

The forward started in all 11 games he appeared in during the CPL’s inaugural season to date, recording three goals and two assists with 12 chances created. Welshman also started the first Canadian Championship match against Cavalry FC and scored a goal before missing the second leg of the championship and the last three games of the CPL’s spring competition to represent Guyana in the Gold Cup.
