Atlético Ottawa Confirms Departure Of Club Original Malcolm Shaw
By John Jacques (Northern Tribune)


Atlético Ottawa club original Malcolm Shaw has officially left the Canadian Premier League side following four years in the nation’s capital.

The 28-year-old striker had been with the side through every season, tallying 83 appearances for the side throughout all competitions. The striker produced 19 goals and five assists during his time with the red-and-white, fittingly scoring the club’s first-ever home playoff goal in a feisty semi-final against Pacific.

Shaw’s last campaign for Ottleti was a quiet one, with the striker scoring just one goal in 22 league appearances, prompting the side to move on from the veteran striker as it seeks to regain its position as a playoff contender.

“It’s been an incredible journey being part of this club since day one,” wrote the striker online. “You all have shown love from the jump and I’m humbly grateful for that.”

Last season proved brighter on the national team stage for the centre-forward, who made his debut for the Trinidad and Tobago national team. He’d go on to make seven appearances for the Soca Warriors, scoring his first international goal against El Salvador in Nations League action.

Following the departure of Miguel Acosta, the out-of-contract Shaw had been been the highest active Ottleti player for appearances with 83. Now, Ollie Bassett leads the charge at 60.

The Pickering, Ontario native had previously played for Swedish third division side Assyriska IK, prior to which he scored thirteen goals in one season for fourth division side Raslatts SK.

He was also fairly prolific for his NCAA Division II soccer days, scoring 27 goals across four seasons for Roberts Wesleyan College.

Shaw’s now-former side has undergone quite a roster rebuild this offseason, with Ballou Tabla rejoining the attacking line while players like Manny Aparicio, Kevin Dos Santos, and Aboubacar Sissoko look like hefty reinforcements, with Amer Didic possibly set to land there too.

“Atlético Ottawa would like to thank Shaw for his commitment and professionalism during his time in the nation’s capital and wish him all the best in his next move,” reads a statement from the club itself.

“Though I’m moving on, the memories and experience will always be cherished. Until next time,” concludes Shaw himself.

Cavalry FC signs Malcolm Shaw to 2024 roster
cavalryfc.canpl.ca


Cavalry FC of the Canadian Premier League (CPL) today announced the club has signed 28-year-old forward Malcolm Shaw to a one-year contract with a one-year option ahead of the 2024 CPL season.

Shaw spent the last three seasons with Atlético Ottawa, where he made 83 appearances across all competitions and contributed 24 goal involvements. Born in Pickering, Ontario, Shaw represents Trinidad and Tobago internationally because of his mother’s heritage. He has earned five caps for the Soca Warriors since June 2023, scoring one goal.

“Malcolm is a proven forward in this league that has scored big goals and has experienced being a key part of a league winning side,” said Tommy Wheeldon Jr., Head Coach and General Manager, Cavalry FC. “He has a great blend of power and finesse within his attacking play, whilst also being an excellent contributor to defensive moments and duals for his team.”

Shaw is one of several attacking options Cavalry has added to bolster its front line this season, joining fellow newcomers Tobias Warschewski, Lleyton Brooks, Lucas Dias and Diego Gutierrez.

“I’m thrilled to embark on this new chapter with Cavalry FC,” said Shaw. “I’m looking forward to embracing the challenges, camaraderie, and victories that lay ahead.”

The club will commence the 2024 CPL campaign as they travel to Hamilton, Ont. to face Forge FC on Saturday, April 13.

Cavalry will then return to ATCO Field at Spruce Meadows for the first time in 2024 to host Vancouver FC in the preliminary round of the TELUS Canadian Championship on Tuesday, April 23. The winner of the single-elimination match will advance to a quarterfinal tilt against Major League Soccer (MLS) side Vancouver Whitecaps FC.

The team will close a busy month of April when it hosts its CPL home opener on Sunday, April 28, welcoming Pacific FC to ATCO Field.

Was at this game. Watching him live made me realize how much of a professional striker he is. He missed a couple sitters in the first half but overall was always a problem for the defence.
