Peruvian Jair Cordova signs with Cavalry FC
Calgary, AB - Cavalry FC welcomes Peruvian forward Jair CÃ³rdova to the roster for the 2020 season.
Twenty-three-year old Jair CÃ³rdova will call ATCO Field home as he joins the Cavalry on a multi-year contract beginning with the 2020 Canadian Premier League (CPL) season. Prior to coming to Cavalry FC CÃ³rdova played with Club Juan Aurich S.A, where the strong forward had 10 goals in 18 matches in the 2019 season. A left-footed forward, CÃ³rdova is a two-time top scorer in Peru's second division, leading to his recent move to division 1 club CSD Alianza. Cavalry FC activated his release clause to bring him to Canada and would like to thank CSD Alianza for their cooperation and professionalism on this.
"CÃ³rdova is a talent that we could not pass up on. His proven goal scoring record speaks for itself and at 23 years old he still has a lot more to develop. We like the way he plays the game with his clever touches, movement and attacking instincts and feel he will be a great addition to our 2020 squad. I'm positive he will be a great team mate and excite our fans". - Tommy Wheeldon Jr. (Head Coach & General Manager)
"It means a lot because it is an ambitious club that always plays to win in every game. I want to win things with this team." - Jair CÃ³rdova on joining Cavalry FC.
CÃ³rdova is expected to arrive in Calgary March 2020 to begin training pending the expected approval of appropriate visas/work permits.
