After sitting out the 2016 PDL season, Ivan Borka is returning to WSA Winnipeg in 2017.
“I am buzzing to make a comeback and make up what I missed last year due to injury,” said Borka. “As one of the youngest teams in the league, I think our first objective is to recognize our strengths and use them to our advantage.”
The 23-year-old adds a veteran presence to what will be a young team. The 6’1 Drury University product adds size and experience from both the NCAA and the PDL, a league made up of teams loaded with top university talent.
“Ivan possesses a combination of size, speed and technical ability,” said WSA Winnipeg head coach Eduardo Badescu. “He was missed last season and we are happy to have him back.”
Able to play both midfield and forward, Borka enters the summer after a senior year at Drury University. In 17 games he scored one goal and added an assist.
“After being sidelined for a year due to a stress fracture in my lower back, I was more eager than ever to come back as a better player and make an impact on the team,” said Borka.
This will be Borka’s 3rd season with WSA Winnipeg, and he is hoping his strong showing in the States can carry over into the PDL.
“There is a lot of potential across the board and I want to help them reach their best level of play too.”
