UFV soccer squad comes calling for Mission’s Kenny Larmour

The Mission Secondary School grad has the ability to play both midfield or centre back, which was a big selling feature.

Mission’s Kenny Larmour is heading across the Fraser River to continue his soccer career.

The University of the Fraser Valley announced on Monday that Larmour was one of three new recruits for the men’s soccer team this fall.

The Mission Secondary School grad has the ability to play both midfield or centre back, which was a big selling feature for Cascades head coach Tom Lowndes.

“Kenny will provide us with another central option, either at central midfield or centre back,” Lowndes said.

“He is a very technical and strong player who has already been playing men’s premier soccer for a couple years now.

“This should help with his transition to Canadian Interuniveristy Sport soccer and I am looking forward to see him make an impact with our squad.”

Larmour plays his club soccer for the West Coast men’s premier side, and was named a 2015 Fraser Valley Soccer League North all-star.

He plans to pursue a bachelor of science degree at UFV.

“I have chosen to join UFV because it is close to home as well as a great opportunity for me to continue my playing career,” Larmour said.

“My goals for my time here are to play as much as possible and continue to improve towards my goal of playing professionally. I’m also excited to get a post-secondary education at the same time.”

Larmour joined Nate Treampleausure from Pitt Meadows and Burnaby’s Bronson Hartley, who were also added to the Cascades on Monday.

The trio join another trio of players from Surrey United’s U18 side, who agreed to join the Cascades in January.
