Pacific FC re-sign Heard, Daniels, Toussaint for 2023 season

Attackers Josh Heard, Djenairo Daniels and midfielder Cédric Toussaint will continue to represent Pacific FC in the upcoming 2023 season.

“We look forward to continuing our work with these three dynamic players, who are all very important to our squad,” said James Merriman, Head Coach, Pacific FC. “Josh is a leader in our team, his quality and impact on the field is there for everyone to see. Djenairo learned a lot last season and stands to have a strong off season and Cedric is a young player in our group with high potential and a bright future.”

Victoria-raised Heard, 27, made 27 appearances for Pacific FC in 2022, playing 2104 minutes and scoring six goals. He goes into his third season with the club and is well-loved by fans as a former member of Lakehill Soccer Association, and later Victoria Metro and Highlanders.

At 6 ft. 3, Daniels was a force on Pacific’s frontline in 2022. The Dutch striker signed with the team in early in the year, after previous experience representing Utrecht’s reserve team in the Netherland’s second tier Eerste Divisie. Daniel’s scored three goals in 23 appearances on his first season with Pacific.

Toussaint, 20, joined Pacific in August 2022 from York United FC and performed well in his 11 appearances with the team. Hailing from Drummondville, Que., Toussaint started his professional career by signing with York in 2021. He made 26 appearances across both the Canadian Premier League and Canadian Championship that year, adding another 17 appearances in 2022.

Pacific’s season tickets renewal campaign for 2023 will take place over 10 days from November 14 to November 23. The club will not raise prices on 2023 season tickets.

“We all know how inflation has impacted almost every aspect of our lives,” said Paul Beirne, Managing Director, Pacific FC. “The changing economy continues to impact the operation of the club. However, we also know that our club is nothing without the fans, and we want to be in this community for the next hundred years.”
