A second member of the N’Sa family has joined the Canadian Premier League fold.
York9 FC announced on Wednesday the signing of 17-year-old defender Felix N’Sa – the brother of recently-departed HFX Wanderers FC fullback Chrisnovic N’Sa – to a multi-year contract.
The physically-imposing Felix – who can play as a centre-back, right fullback or as a deep-lying midfielder – arrives on York Region via Quebec youth team Panellinios Montreal FC, and following a trial with Pacific FC.
Felix’s older brother Chrisnovic was a standout at The Island Games for the CPL Finalists, earning an Under-21 Player of the Year nomination in the process. Chrisnovic has not re-signed with the Wanderers for 2021, having declined their contract offer.
York9 managing consultant Angus McNab lauded the capture of Felix, whom he became aware of this past summer.
“He’s got huge potential and understands he’s going to need to put in the work to earn a job with our squad. His versatility is a huge asset and we’ll work to develop him into the best possible player,” McNab said in a media release.
N’Sa joins 14 other York9 players confirmed for the 2021 season: goalkeeper Nathan Ingham; defenders Morey Doner, Diyaeddine Abzi and Ryan Lindsay; midfielders Max Ferrari, Jordan Wilson, Ijah Halley, Isiah Johnston, Michael Petrasso and Mateo Hernandez; and forwards Alvaro Rivero, Lowell Wright, Julian Ulbricht and Nicholas Hamilton.
