HAMILTON — Forge FC has signed former Toronto FC forward Jordan Hamilton to a multi-year contract.
The 26-year-old from Scarborough, Ont., was with Ireland's Sligo Rovers FC most recently, recording two goals and two assists in 13 appearances.
"We are very happy to welcome Jordan to our club," Forge director of football Costa Smyrniotis said in a statement. "He is a quality player we know quite well, who will strengthen an already solid attacking group as we head into the back half of our season."
Hamilton joins fellow former TFC players Kyle Bekker, Ashtone Morgan and Emery Welshman at Forge.
He adds to an already potent Forge offence. The Hamilton-based club tops the eight-team CPL standings at 10-4-2 and leads the league with 37 goals.
Hamilton spent 2011 to 2019 in the Toronto FC system, moving up the ranks to make 66 appearances for the first team in all competitions with 15 goals and five assists. He spent the 2019 and 2020 seasons with the Columbus Crew.
In 2021, he scored five goals in 18 appearances for Indy Eleven of the USL Championship.
Hamilton has won two caps for Canada and, as a youth international, played at the 2013 FIFA U17 World Cup.
