WINNIPEG, MB., April. 9 – Valour FC today announced the club has signed Canadian midfielder Louis Béland-Goyette to a one-year contract.
Béland-Goyette, 23, joins Valour FC after spending the last three seasons with the Montreal Impact (MLS).
“Louis is another fantastic signing for us and similarly to Petrasso (Michael), he is every bit an MLS-level player but with a little bit of bad luck, and without the poor timing of an injury, he’d still be there,” said Valour FC Head Coach & GM Rob Gale. “He’s a great ball-playing midfielder, a terrific character and we are over the moon to have him join us.”
Béland-Goyette joined the Montreal Impact Academy in 2011, playing through their U-18 and U-21 squads. In 2014, he became a member of the U-23 team where he made eight appearances. Later that season, he signed a professional contract with the Impact, making his first team debut as a substitution on September 13th.
In 2015, Béland-Goyette was added to the FC Montreal (United Soccer League) roster where he spent two seasons, then re-signed with the first team in November of 2016. He made 11 appearances for the Impact between 2017-2018.
Béland-Goyette also represented Canada at both the U-18 and U-20 level. The midfielder was a member of the squad that competed at the 2015 CONCACAF U-20 Championship and a member of the Canadian U-23 team at the 2015 Pan Am Games.
