Cavalry FC adds experienced Joseph Di Chiara to soccer fold
Joseph Di Chiara has signed a multi-year deal with Cavalry FC beginning in the 2021 Canadian Premier League Season.
The veteran Canadian midfielder has played the last two CPL seasons with York9 FC. In 29 appearances with York9, he recorded five goals, one assist and an impressive 87% pass-completion rate.
“Joe is a top all-action midfield player and one of the most impactful in this league,” said Cavalry GM/head coach Tommy Wheeldon Jr. “He has the ability to keep his side in possession, add a goal-scoring threat and brings a physicality in how he imposes himself in defensive duals. Joe plays to win and will fit our culture very well and complement the outstanding midfield group we have assembled over the past two seasons.”
Di Chiara has played premier league soccer in Russia, Kazakhstan and Lithuania and starred with two-time League 1 Ontario champion Vaughan Azzurri, with whom he was named league MVP twice.
