ANB Futbol’s vision is to become Canada’s leading soccer development organization. Its mission is to identify Canadian soccer talent, and to maximize the potential of players at any level, through professional coaching and training and participation in a standards based inter-academy youth league.
Former ANB Futbol striker and SAAC Inter-Academy Competition participant for 6 years, signs with France Ligue 2 club!
SAAC is proud to recognize the accomplishments of former ANB Futbol player Adonijah Reid who signed a contract with the French Ligue 2 club, HAC Le HAVRE.
Reid (1999 born) was a member of ANB Futbol from the age of 12 to 17. In early 2017, Reid was selected as one of the first recipients of a Generation Adidas Canada contract with Major League Soccer and was subsequently chosen by FC Dallas in the 2nd round (40th overall) of the 2017 MLS draft. Over the past two years, Reid was with FC Dallas and loaned to Ottawa Fury (USL). He has also been part of the Canada Men’s National team program, representing Canada at the CONCACAF U20 tournament in Nov. 2018. Most recently, he was on trial with HAC Le HAVRE and the club decided to extend a contract based on his performance.
ANB Futbol has a strong relationship with various French clubs, especially HAC Le HAVRE, where a number of young ANB athletes have gone on trial and the club is actively following their progress during their annual visits to Canada. Reid’s move to France was also facilitated through the work of Stellar Group, his representative agency.
ANB Futbol Academy Director, Bassam Naim, is happy for the young player:
“Adonijah has professional experience in North America and now we will see his abilities against some of the best players in the world. Le HAVRE has a great reputation in developing players to a highest level. I look forward to seeing him face the next steps in his futbol career. I only wish him the best! We would also like to thank his agent, Nicco Roffo of the Stellar Group, Adidas, and Major League Soccer.”
ANB Futbol is a proud founding member of Soccer Academy Alliance Canada and participates fully in all SAAC standards based, development venues for youth ages U8 – U13 and the inter-academy competitive venues for young competitive athletes ages U14 – U20. SAAC is entering its 14th year of operations for the 2019 season. If your dream is to become a world class competitive FUTballer, contact a SAAC member Academy closest to you.
