Nico Pasquotti and Jay Wheeldon return to Cavalry FC for the 2020 season


Cavalry FC announced the return Nico Pasquotti and Jonathan “Jay” Wheeldon to the roster for the 2020 season.

Nico Pasquotti signed his first professional contract with Cavalry FC in 2019 after playing 3 years for Calgary Foothills FC PDL team (now USL2) and in both League Championships (2016 & 2018).

The Lethbridge native stood out in the inaugural season playing over 2600 minutes with seven assists and five goals between Canadian Premier League and Canadian Championship Games.

Tommy Wheeldon Jr. had this to say about Nico Pasquotti:

“We are excited to have Nico back for another year. He brings with him such great game effect and pride in our colours. Nico is the type that like many of us, feel we have some unfinished business to tend to in 2020 and the work he is putting in in the off-season will show in his performances on the field”.

Jay Wheeldon returns to the Cavalry FC roster for the 2020 season. Wheeldon played for Calgary Foothills FC PDL team (now USL2) in 2018 prior to signing with Cavalry FC early 2019.

In the inaugural season, the defender played over 1800 minutes between Canadian Premier League and Canadian Championship Games.

“Jay is a valuable part of our squad and our team statistics emphasize that when he’s in the starting XI. He has such an incredible competitive edge, quality passing range and organizes the team brilliantly around him,” said Tommy Wheeldon Jr.

Cavalry FC is currently in discussion with several players from the 2019 roster. The club has options to continue for 2020 and will update accordingly as information is available.
