York9 FC announced the signing of CPL-U SPORTS draft pick Emmanuel Zambazis on Wednesday, his 22nd birthday.
The first-year York University midfielder was chosen 11th overall in the inaugural draft by head coach Jimmy Brennan last November.

“We know he’ll be a player and one for the future. It will be good to get him training with us in a first-team environment,” Brennan said when he drafted the Toronto-area native.
Zambazis is the second CPL-U SPORTS draft pick to be signed by Y9, followed by former York teammate Daniel Gogarty.
