Former NTC Player, Meconse, Signs Letter of Intent With Men’s Soccer

Men's Soccer is excited to announce the commitment of former National Training Centre (NTC) and UNBC midfielder/striker Greg Meconse for the 2017 MCAC Season.

"Greg is a solid all-around addition," said head coach Russell Willms who enters his tenth season with the program, "his technical ability is at a top-level, his work rate is very high and he clearly enjoys training and playing the game. He will be a key component of our team and will fit in extremely well with our group of players."

Meconse credits his father Joseph Wesley, who was himself a hockey player, for playing a key role in his athletic development as a youth. "When first seeing Greg play, it is his balanced athleticism that catches your eye. He is a smooth, strong player with good vision and movement. He is a fun player to play alongside," added Willms.

Meconse was issued into the National Training Centre at Glenlawn Collegiate in 2012 and 2013 after starring with Bonivital Soccer Club in his early youth years. At the under-14 level, Meconse helped his Bonivital club to an MSA Cup win and went on to score five goals in five matches at the CSA National Championships in Moncton, New Brunswick.

After graduating from Glenlawn, Meconse spent his first year of university at UNBC in Prince George, BC where he featured in the Timberwolves starting eleven on 8 of 12 league matches in the CIS (now called, USports). This summer, Meconse is lacing up his boots for WSA Winnipeg in the Manitoba Major Soccer League's Premier Division.

Men's Soccer kicks off their 2017 MCAC campaign on Sunday, September 10th at the Ralph Cantafio Soccer Complex against the Red River Rebels. CMU Athletics has also been selected as hosts of the 2017 MCAC Women's and Men's Soccer Championships. The semifinals and finals are scheduled for October 28th and 29th at the Ralph Cantafio Soccer Complex.
