‘Get this boy playing!’ – Prestigious award win prompts Millwall fans to call upon Harris to give young star first-team chance



Millwall winger Kris Twardek has been voted the Canadian U-20 player of the season, confirming the youngster’s place as one of the brightest young talents in North American football.

The 20-year-old starred for the Canadians during the recent CONCACAF U-20 Championship in Costa Rica, scoring once as The Canucks crashed out at the group stage following defeats to Mexico and Honduras.

Born in Ontario, Twardek appeared for the Czech Republic at various youth levels before switching allegiances to Canada, and linked up with Millwall last year following a spell in his homeland.
