In Memoriam: Wanderers FC 2019

November 26, 2019 Dylan Matthias 0

No team in the Canadian Premier League has received as much coverage for what’s happening off the field–in a good way–than Halifax Wanderers FC. No team has received less coverage about what’s happening on the field, which is a pity, because this team is legitimately fascinating.

The inaugural CanPL/USPORTs draft presented a completely clean slate. Draftees were actually the first players formally affiliated with the new clubs, and many went on to have a lot of success. That, in turn, increased both expectation and attention for the 2019 draft.

Amongst a string of games that don’t really matter comes one that does. All season, Wanderers’ main story has been the support off the field rather than the play on it, and tonight is a chance to indulge that in a way that doesn’t feel like a distraction.

Surprisingly, these two teams have played some close games this year, mainly in Halifax. Whether Wanderers can deliver a similar performance on the road has been the devil of their season.

As mentioned on Twitter, I’ll be along a bit later tonight because of refereeing commitments[mfn]I thought the Wanderers game was at 7, okay?[/mfn] so, you know, chat amongst yourselves. I leave you in the monkeys’ capable hands.
