LEXINGTON, Ky. – Lexington SC today announced the addition of Terique Mohammed to its roster, pending federation and league approval.

Born in Toronto, Mohammed is a 22-year-old left back joining Lexington SC from FC Edmonton in the Canadian Premier League. He appeared in 22 matches for the Eddies in 2022.

Mohammed brings USL experience to Lexington, as well, competing for Toronto FC II from 2018-19. The club participated in USL Championship in 2018 and USL League One in 2019 — the league’s inaugural season.

In 2021, Mohammed signed with League of Ireland Premier Division side Dundalk FC where he did not see the pitch.

On the international stage, Mohammed was selected to the Canadian U-17 side for the 2017 Concacaf U-17 Championship, and the following year was named to the U-20 team for the 2018 Concacaf U-20 Championship.

Mohammed was also added to the Canadian U-23 provisional roster for the 2020 Concacaf Men’s Olympic Qualifying Championship.

“To be among the first signings of this club is a huge blessing and an incredible opportunity for us players to showcase ourselves,” Mohammed said. “First impressions are major. Many eyes will be on us as people’s curiosity grows to see how we will adapt to the level of this league.

“Whatever we accomplish in this league will be history and will set a standard for this club. It will be up to us to create a brotherhood with the right energy, mindset and discipline within the team.”

“Terique is a box-to-box, modern-day fullback that has excellent energy and pace,” said Sam Stockley, LSC’s head coach. “He can break lines and brings a great end product in the final third. He’s played in this league and has been in big environments while in Toronto and Edmonton; adding that experience along with his hugely competitive and winning mentality will be invaluable to our team.”
