Congratulations to FC Durham Academy (FCD) 2020 Graduating Forward Darius Kerr-Cooper on his commitment to Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU) in Fort Myers Florida!
Darius will be joining FCD Alum O'Vonte Mullings at FGCU.
He has been at FCD for 5 years improving his game every year with hard work and dedication. He has helped the 2002 Boys achieve many successes on the field winning the OASL League and Cup plus various Tournaments. Darius recently represented Ontario in the CPL U21 Showcase game beating Quebec 1-0.
Coach Cormier at FGCU is excited to have such a dynamic attacking player added to the Eagles line-up. It is going to be an exciting time at FGCU with Darius and O'Vonte putting pressure on the oppositions goal.
A big Thank You to Coach Howard Jaundoo for his work with Darius. Howard has been a huge part of Darius's development on and off the field.
Congrats to Darius and his Mom Christal

Congratulations to FC Durham Academy Academy (FCD) 2020 Graduating Goalkeeper Aneesa O'Brien on her commitment to Jacksonville State University (JSU) in Alabama!
Rich Hirst our Girl's High-Performance Manager says "Aneesa has been a key player at FCD for a few years now and her and her families dedication to the Academy, her development and her college objectives is second to none. Her family has lived in Etobicoke for a couple years now but that did not stop Aneesa from remaining at FCD and also her high school in Oshawa. She also works at the ATC and is always willing to drop everything to help out when the Academy or her teammates need her. Exceptional! She is an extremely athletic and technical goalkeeper that will battle to be JSU's #1 goalkeeper in 2020 as a freshman."
JSU competes in the Ohio Valley Conference of NCAA Division 1.
Congrats again Aneesa!

Rich Hirst our Girl's High-Performance Manager says 'Abby joined FCD in June 2019 in order to explore the opportunities that are out there for her post-secondary education. Last week Abby made a verbal commitment to Ryerson University of the Ontario University Athletics (OUA). She is a goalkeeper that displays confidence, a great understanding of her position, quality technical skills and has a superior commitment to her development and our program. We believe that we will see Abby playing ample games as a 1st year goalkeeper for Ryerson in 2020 and she will contribute to the future successes of that growing program in the OUA."
