Nice to see another local product in the Premiership as David Edgar has made the jump to the first team at Newcastle this week. I personally thought Edgar was a possibility to return to Toronto FC but that notion is not likely now. With Kitchener native Edgar at Newcastle, Tomasz Radzinski (North York) at Fulham, and Paul Stalteri (Brampton) at Tottenham - Toronto /
Southwestern Ontario have 3 reps in one of the top leagues in the world. Add the likes of Iain Hume (Brampton), Paul Peschisolido (Pickering/Scarborough), Jason Devos (London), Jaime Peters (Pickering) one has to think the Toronto area is amongst the most productive export areas for soccer talent anywhere in North America (USA & Canada that is) . Add the likes of Jonathan De Guzman at Feynoord and brother Julian De Guzman at Deportivo (both of Scarborough), Atiba Hutchinson (Brampton) - showing his worth in the Champions League with FC Copenhagen to the English based players and the list becomes even more respectable.
