Vancouver Whitecaps News: Kevin Harmse On Trial, Jay Demerit Named Captain

Posted In News - By Kevin McCauley On Wednesday, March 2nd, 2011 With 1 Comment

The Vancouver Whitecaps seem to be short in almost all areas of their roster except for fullback, so it should come as no surprise that they’re still looking for players deep into the preseason. Today, they took defensive midfielder Kevin Harmse on trial, confirmed by Whitecaps beat reporter Marc Weber.

Harmse, a Canadian international, previously played for the Whitecaps in Division 2, early in his career. He’s enjoyed stints at Toronto FC and Los Angeles Galaxy, as well as in Europe. Because of recurring injuries, Harmse has not played significant minutes for any professional team in the last two years, but if he can prove he is finally healthy, he would probably be a very good addition to a thin Whitecaps squad.

Additionally, the Whitecaps named their captain today, giving the armband to designated player and United States international defender Jay Demerit. Terry Dunfield and John Thorrington were named as the alternate captains.
