Valour FC announces return of forward Austin Ricci

Valour FC today announce that the club has re-signed Canadian forward Austin Ricci.

Ricci, 24, joined Valour FC on July 9th, 2020 after spending the 2019 season with York9 FC.

“Austin fit in well with the club and the culture in a very short space of time and is a great personality on & off the field,” said Valour FC Head Coach & GM Rob Gale. “His willingness to work hard and not give defenders any rest shows he has the potential to be a top striker in the Canadian Premier League.”

In 2020, Ricci totaled 365 minutes played in six appearances, drawing two penalties.

The striker spent his four-year college career playing for the Oakland Golden Grizzlies (Oakland University.) Ricci totaled 22 goals during his time at Oakland, including a team-leading eight goals in his senior year.
