Reggae Boy Tevin Shaw says he’s aiming to be a first team regular at his new club Atletico Ottawa in the Canadian Premier League. The 23 year old midfielder signed a two year deal with the club on Thursday, ending his spell with Portmore United in the Red Stripe Premier League.
The former Tivoli Gardens, Boys’ Town and Camperdown High player is also hoping this move can help him to transition into the European market.
“Trying to one the standout players in my role and also be a leader; add few goals, few assists and continue to work my socks off to get a few more national call-ups and take it from there. (Also) to make the transition to a better set-up into the wider world because I aspire to play at the highest level,” said Shaw.
Shaw becomes the third Jamaican after Alex Marshall and Nicholas Nelson to sign for a team in the Canadian Premier League. The Canadian Premier League is suspended until April 11 due to the spread of the Covid 19 coronavirus globally.
