Forge FC midfielder Tristan Borges, the Canadian Premier League’s player of the year in 2019, will be back with the CPL champions in 2020.

The club announced that Borges and captain/midfielder Kyle Bekker, a finalist for player of the year, are among 12 players already under contract for next season.

There had been some question about whether Borges might leave for greener pastures after the CPL’s inaugural season that saw him win the Golden Boot award as the league’s top scorer and win the Best U-21 Canadian Player of the Year in addition to MVP honours.

The Hamilton club said more re-signings are expected from the 2019 roster.
