“I’ve worked with each of these players for many years and can’t thank them enough for what they’ve helped build here in Calgary and their contributions to the growth of the Canadian Premier League.  The world we live in now is an extremely challenging one where lots of sacrifices have been made by many.  Wherever they go next in their lives, I’m sure they will add value to that environment with their character and capability.”

– Tommy Wheeldon Jr (Head Coach & General Manager, Cavalry FC)


The club would like to thank each of these players for their valuable contributions to the team both on and off the pitch and wish them luck in all future endeavours.
