Toronto FC (TFC) recently announced that promising young GSSA goalkeeper Jaheim Wickham has put pen to paper to sign a youth contract with the club.It is no secret that there’s something special about the 15 year old Jaheim. He was a part of the 2017 GSSA Pro Academy Showcase team that toured Northern England and trained with our U18 team. His performances in England were outstanding and he earned a trial at Bolton Wanderers FC, where he lived and trained as a professional footballer for 9 days.Bolton Wanderers remains interested in the young lad but signing with TFC offers him the immediate opportunity to continue to train in a professional environment.
Either way, it’s good for Jaheim. And who knows, just maybe we might see him starting between the sticks for either Bolton Wanderers FC or Toronto FC down the road, All of us at GSSA is proud of Jaheim and wishes him the best of luck.
