CALGARY — Cavalry FC has acquired Robert Boskovic from Toronto FC on a season-long loan.
The 21-year-old centre back from Mississauga, Ont., played more than 50 games for Toronto FC 2 prior to being loaned to the Ottawa Fury in the USL Championship last season.
Boskovic was named the U Sports rookie of the year with the Ryerson Rams in 2016 before signing professionally with TFC 2 in 2017.
"Robert is a great defensive addition to our group, adding cover and competition to the left side of our defence," Cavalry coach and GM Tommy Wheeldon Jr. said in a statement. "What excites me is that he is another young Canadian with a big upside. At only 21 years old, he has already banked 60-plus professional appearances and still has a massive ceiling to grow further as a player, which we hope our club is the perfect environment for."
The Canadian Premier League kicks off its second season on April 11.
