Cavalry FC Re-signs midfielder Charlie Trafford

January 22, 2024Cavalry FC of the Canadian Premier League (CPL) today announced it has re-signed midfielder Charlie Trafford to a new two-year deal with a one-year option.

 The midfielder signed with the club in 2022 and has made 55 appearances for the side since joining. As a strong presence, Trafford offers control within the midfield and is a leader amongst the squad, providing guidance and influence which helped the club clinch its 2023 league title. He has marked himself as one of the top within the squad in 2023 for duals won at 66%, and in passes completed, with 89%. Born and raised in Calgary, he now looks to continue his career with his hometown club and push to bring even more glory in 2024 as he extends his time to 2025 with an option for 2026.

Charlie is a valuable presence to us on and off the pitch. He is very good at starting our attacks from within our half and very important in the manner he breaks up the opponents attacks with his physicality and intelligence. On top of that, he is a person that cares about the city he is from, and it shows in the way he plays for our crest and his daily habits with the group as an emotional leader.

—Tommy Wheeldon Jr., Head Coach and General Manager, Cavalry FC
