Another soccer player from Vancouver Island is making his way north to join the UNBC Timberwolves.
Today (Friday), the T-Wolves announced the signing of Charlie Stewart for the upcoming season.
“I am really excited to take that next step and play at the highest level in Canada, and to play on a really great team. They’re really good guys with a really good coach. I am excited to make that jump and I am really honoured to have this spot. I am most excited to play for the Timberwolves. It is a pretty cool next step.”
Stewart comes by the Timberwolves program honestly, training for a number of years under head coach Steve Simonson, and even plays for the Vancouver Island Wave program for coach Sonny Pawar – the former UNBC varsity coach that helped the Timberwolves program through its early college years and into the Canada West level.
“Steve is probably one of the biggest reasons why I chose UNBC. He has coached me since I was young and he has really influenced the way I play soccer today. I want to move forward playing under Steve. When I was in Prince George, I instantly felt like I was at home with all the guys. I knew Cody (Gysbers) through EPIC, so I had that connection. Meeting all the guys, they were so friendly. I really like the program and the vibe it gives off.”
Set to graduate from Royal Bay Secondary School in June, Stewart will enroll in UNBC’s Nature-Based Tourism program this fall.
