Grand Rapids, MI – The Boys in Blue are pleased to announce the signing of Vianney Durand for the 2021 season. Durand, who hails from Cameroon, represented them growing up while playing for their U-16 National team. He is currently a freshman at Western Michigan University and will be joining a number of other Broncos this summer.
“Vianney is a gifted athlete, his pace and power are on another level. We’re hopeful he can do great things this summer,” said Head Coach, Stu Collins. “It’s great to know that we can find players of this quality through the tryout process,” he added about the signing.
Durand appeared in a couple of Community Cup matches last summer for Grand Rapids FC. When asked about 2021 he said, “I am very excited to return for my second season with GRFC. I can’t wait to see old teammates as well as meet the new ones and staff. I am looking forward to playing and winning games in front of the great fans of GRFC.”
We are just over two weeks away from our first home match! Catch Durand and The Boys in Blue next week Thursday for their first scrimmage against The Grand Haven Admirals at 8:30pm.
