    New League1BC side Burnaby FC has named Todd May as the head coach of the men’s team.

    May had assisted FC Edmonton for the Canadian Premier League side’s final campaign, after which he helped Burnaby FC’s U-17 Boys team to a national title at the 2023 Toyota National Championship.

    “It’s a privilege for me to continue my own coaching journey in this city, embarking on a brand new era for football at this club,” said May, who had also previously worked with one of the five clubs that amalgamated into Burnaby FC last year.

    The new League1 BC was announced as League1 BC’s eighth team just one week ago and will field men’s and women’s team for the 2024 League1 BC season. The club had formed through the merger of five existing local youth and amateur adult clubs: Cliff Avenue United FC, Mountain United FC, Wesburn FC, Burnaby Girls SC, and Burnaby District Metro Soccer.

    Before his time coaching in the Canadian Premier League with FC Edmonton, May had helped coach Simon Fraser University to a second-place finish in league standings back in 2021, and had previously worked with both Mountain FC at the U-17 level and Vancouver’s Barca Academy.

    As a player, he had developed with the Brighton and Hove Albion academy – where he returned after the 2022 CPL season on a coaching course – and had been part of the inaugural Whitecaps Residency team. He captained the Concordia University side whilst playing for the Southern West Virginia King’s Warriors in the PDL, following which he helped UNC Pembroke to a quarter-final run at the NCAA level.
