Adonijah Reid has joined Pacific FC ahead of the 2023 Canadian Premier League season.
Reid is an exciting and skillful attacking player, and is a former Generation Adidas athlete and MLS SuperDraft draft pick.
“Adonijah is a dynamic and inspiring player who knows how to find the back of the net,” says Pacific FC’s Manager of Football and Player Development, Jamar Dixon, who knows Reid well from time spent playing together with Ottawa Fury.
“He has a big future ahead of him and we are happy to provide this opportunity for him to break out and take his game to the next level.”
The 23 year old comes to the Island having most recently played for Miami FC in the USL Championship. Reid is an attack-minded winger who has received many accolades and gained top-level experience at a young age.
Reid began his career in 2015 with ANB Futbol in League 1 Ontario, scoring 20 goals in 20 appearances as a 16 year old. From there, he went on trial to some of the biggest clubs in France such as OGC Nice and Olympique Lyonnais. The Brampton native ultimately signed a Generation Adidas contract with Major League Soccer before the 2017 MLS SuperDraft as a way of entering the draft earlier than otherwise allowed. Other Generation Adidas athletes include fellow Canadians and Canada men’s national team stars Richie Laryea and Cyle Larin.
While with FC Dallas, Reid was loaned out to Ottawa Fury for both the 2017 and 2018 seasons and it was there that he made his professional debut alongside Dixon in 2017.
After two seasons in Ottawa, Reid moved to France to join Ligue 2 side Le Havre AC and then went on to join FC Miami. In two seasons and 55 appearances with FC Miami, Reid scored nine goals and had six assists.
Reid is also a former Canadian youth international having played for the U20 team on five occasions.
Like other recent signing Ayman Sellouf, Reid can play in any position across the attacking line, but is most comfortable on the wing. Reid’s quick feet and low centre of gravity allow him to beat his man in 1v1 situations, and his sharp shooting ability makes him a constant threat around the box.
“Adonijah is a good kid with strong character who is willing to learn and take constructive criticism,” says Dixon. “The potential to be a game-changing playmaker and consistent goal-scorer at the heart of our attack is there, and we look forward to seeing him achieve new heights with Pacific.”
With Reid’s arrival on the Island, Pacific FC’s roster now stands at 17 players with more additions to be announced shortly.
