York9 appoints Aparicio captain, names five vice-captains

Midfielder Manny Aparicio is set to lead York9 FC onto the pitch at Tim Hortons Field as the club’s first captain.

The club announced the appointment on Friday, a mere 24 hours before Y9 takes on Forge FC (Saturday, 1 p.m., CBC, OneSoccer) in the Canadian Premier League’s Inaugural Match.

The 23-year-old is joined by Luca Gasparotto, Joesph Di Chiara, Kyle Porter, Nathan Ingham and Roger Thompson, who were named vice-captains.

Kyle Bekker was revealed as Forge’s captain earlier in the week.
