Pacific FC today announced the signing of forward Adonijah Reid ahead of the 2023 season.
The 23-year-old native of Brampton, Ontario comes to the Island after a recent stint with Miami FC in the USL Championship and the attack-minded winger brings significant experience to Pacific FC despite his still young age. Reid has played over 100 professional matches scoring a total of 14 goals and seven assists.
Reid’s career took off around the age of 16 in 2015, when he scored 20 goals in 20 appearances with ANB Futbol in League 1 Ontario. He went on trial with some of the biggest clubs in France, such as OGC Nice and Olympique Lyonnais, before becoming eligible for the 2017 MLS SuperDraft as a member of the inaugural Generation Adidas Canada class. Reid joined fellow current and former Canadian Premier League players in that year’s MLS draft class, including Kwame Awuah, Shamit Shome, Brian Wright and Chris Nanco. He was selected with the 40th pick by FC Dallas.
Reid was loaned out to Ottawa Fury by FC Dallas for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons. It was there that he made his professional debut alongside Pacific FC’s Manager of Football and Player Development, Jamar Dixon.
“Adonijah is a dynamic and inspiring player who knows how to find the back of the net,” said Dixon. “He has a big future ahead of him and we are happy to provide this opportunity for him to break out and take his game to the next level.”
After two seasons in Ottawa, Reid moved to France to join Ligue 2 side Le Havre AC. He later linked up with FC Miami in January 2021, making 55 appearances over two seasons, scoring nine goals and adding six assists.
Reid is also a former Canadian youth international, after representing Canada at the 2018 Concacaf Men’s Under-20 Championship.
“Adonijah is a good kid with strong character who is willing to learn and take constructive criticism,” said Dixon. “The potential to be a game-changing playmaker and consistent goal-scorer at the heart of our attack is there, and we look forward to seeing him achieve new heights with Pacific.”
