Following the completion of their six-week offseason training camp this week, Vancouver Whitecaps FC announced today the signings of midfielder Terry Dunfield and centre back Greg Janicki to the club’s Major League Soccer roster.
Per club policy, terms of the contracts were not disclosed.
Both Dunfield and Janicki were members of Whitecaps FC during the club’s final season at the North American second division level in 2010. The pair joins goalkeeper Jay Nolly, right fullback Wes Knight, and midfielder Philippe Davies in making the transition from Vancouver’s United States Soccer Federation Division-2 Professional League (USSF D-2) team to their MLS squad for the 2011 season.
“Terry and Greg are very professional in their approach and bring a lot of character to our roster,” said Whitecaps FC head coach Teitur Thordarson. “Terry has played soccer at a very high level in England and we will benefit from the experience he will add to our team, as we enter our inaugural season in MLS. Greg is a player with huge potential and continues to mature as a centre back. His performances last season gave us the confidence to add him to our MLS roster.”
