Pacific FC added to their attack Tuesday by signing Brampton footballer Adonijah Reid to the roster.

A 23-year-old winger/forward from Brampton, Adonijah Reid is a former Canadian youth international and FC Dallas draft pick was most recently with Miami FC in the USL Championship.

He made waves in 2015 when, as a 16-year-old, he scored 20 goals in 20 appearances with ANB Futbol in League 1 Ontario. He went on trial with France’s Nice and Olympique Lyonnais, before signing a Generation Adidas deal ahead of the 2017 MLS SuperDraft.

Dallas selected Reid in the second round (40th overall) and loaned him to the Ottawa Fury in 2017 and 2018. He played there alongside Jamar Dixon, Pacific’s current manager of football and player development.

Reid then played for Le Havre AC in the French second tier before joining FC Miami in January 2021, making 55 appearances over two seasons with nine goals and six assists.

“Adonijah is a dynamic and inspiring player who knows how to find the back of the net,” Dixon said in a statement. “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.”

Reid represented Canada at the 2018 CONCACAF Men’s Under-20 Championship.
