Valour FC today announce the club has picked up the option of forwards Moses Dyer and William Akio.

“Dyer came to life when he moved to centre-forward for our club,” said Valour FC Head Coach & GM Phillip Dos Santos. “He’s dangerous in and around the box, can finish and is committed in the defensive phase.”

Akio, 23, made 30 appearances for a total of 1,929 minutes played, eight goals and four assists in 2021. The forward first joined Valour FC on May 5th, 2021 from the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley.
