At twenty years old, Johnston will join the Huntsville City FC as one of the most regarded soccer prospects in Canada.

The midfielder is from Milton, Ontario and spent the past three seasons playing for York United FC in the Canadian Premier League (CPL). Last year, he led the team to the playoffs and appeared as one of the CPL’s Next Gen stars, an award honoring the best of young Canadian talent.

Johnston’s MLS NEXT Pro professional contract is pending league and U.S. Soccer Federation approval as well as the receipt of his ITC and work authorization.

According to a release from Huntsville City FC, Johnston embodies the project behind the organization and is excited to join the team.

“Hey Huntsville! I’m so excited to be joining the first professional football club in the beautiful city of Huntsville, Alabama. Being the first signing in club history means everything to me, as the club has showed faith in my abilities as a footballer and I will give everything to keep that faith in them and for the fans of Huntsville.

Thank you for all the support we have already received. I can’t wait to get started and play in front of all our Huntsville City FC enthusiasts.”
