Nik Ledgerwood is headed back to the Cavalry FC.
The FC announced Thursday the Lethbridge product and team captain signed a one-year extension for the 2021 Canadian Premier League season.
“2020 has definitely been a hard year and it just magnified how much I miss sharing a home stadium with our fans,” said Ledgerwood in a release. “I honestly can’t wait to share my passion and love for the game again in a packed ATCO Field at Spruce Meadows in 2021.”
The 2021 season will be Ledgerwood’s third season as captain with Cavalry FC.
In 2020, he played over 400 minutes in seven matches at the CPL Island Games. Ledgerwood had the assist on Cavalry FC’s first goal in the opening match against Forge FC.
During the first match of the second stage of the Island Games, Ledgerwood was successful from the penalty spot which gave Cavalry the lead versus Pacific FC.
The 35-year-old began with the Cavalry FC roster in 2019.
In the inaugural season, Ledgerwood played over 1,500 minutes between the CPL and Canadian Championship games with 116 recoveries, 23 interceptions, 13 clearances and 43 tackles as well as three goals and one assist.
