Brampton Soccer’s Lowell Wright

If you’ve played in Brampton Adult Soccer for any reasonable amount of time (over the last 5-10 years) then you’ve already been in the presence of Brampton Soccer’s Lowell Wright who has recently seen a rise in his reputation as a potential future Canadian soccer star. Lowell, attending BAS matches with his referee father, Wayne Wright, was one of those talented youngsters you’d have running onto the pitch at half time and between games to kick a ball around with his brother. That’s the sort of dedication and passion for the game that has gotten Brampton Soccer’s Lowell Wright to where he is today.

Lowell has recently been called up to Canada’s U20 team and played in the majority of their CONCACAF U20 tournament games. The team struggled but Wright acquitted himself well.

His performances for a very young York United team in the CPL have also been very good and drawn the notice of bigger clubs from bigger leagues. The attention has now culminated in a transfer to the Vancouver Whitecaps 2 squad that competes in MLSNext. While joining the VWFC reserve squad may be seen as a downgrade from the CPL, it does provide Wright with the opportunity to a) be a call up for the VWFC first team and b) see him transition to the first team the way that Brampton’s Jacen Russell-Rowe and Quebec based Mo Farsi did with the Columbus Crew as both players were awarded contracts with CC’s first team after repeatedly impressing in MLSNext and as call-ups in the MLS.

A heartfelt thanks from York United for Brampton Soccer's Lowell Wright

“Lowell has shown over the past three seasons in the CPL that he is a dynamic and exciting young talent who is capable of producing moments of brilliance.

This is something we’ve been discussing with Axel [Schuster] and the Whitecaps since we had dinner with him the evening before our Canadian Championship semi-final in Vancouver back in June. I’m delighted Lowell is getting this opportunity with them as I really think some of their recent recruitment has been exciting and it’s going to be an environment in which Lowell will really be challenged.”

Angus McNab, York United FC’s CEO/President and GM
