Atlético Ottawa welcomes Luke Singh back on loan from Toronto FC

Atlético Ottawa has bolstered its defensive ranks, as Toronto FC defender Luke Singh has returned to the nation’s capital on loan for a second successive season.

Singh’s return follows a successful loan spell with in Ottawa in 2023, during which he emerged as a key figure in our backline. The versatile defender was rewarded for his performances on the international stage, earning his debut for Trinidad and Tobago in June of that year. His standout moment came with a spectacular goal against Cavalry FC at TD Place, a strike that earned plaudits as the best of the season.

Expressing his enthusiasm about rejoining the team, Singh stated, “I’m really excited to be back. Last year I learned to be a better person, as well as a better player and teammate. I love the environment and staff on offer at Atlético. I honestly loved being in Ottawa, and I’m really excited to come back.”

Singh’s impact on the field was significant during his previous stint with Atlético Ottawa. Making 25 league appearances, he became a linchpin in Head Coach Carlos González’s defensive setup, often dictating play from the back. Notably, Singh led the team in several statistical categories, including passes completed, blocks, clearances, and recoveries.

“We are glad to have Luke return,” said Atlético Ottawa’s Head Coach, Carlos González. “We already know that he is a player with very good physical and technical abilities, which makes him have a great impact on the team’s offensive game. During last season we witnessed great growth in his ability to compete and we are sure that he will continue to evolve due to his good natural conditions and youth.”

With Singh already joining his teammates in Mexico for preseason preparations, Atlético Ottawa has two final scrimmages left ahead of returning to Canada as we enter the final couple of weeks ahead of the new CPL campaign.
