#CanPara

Samuel Charron has been named Canada Soccer’s 2023 Para Soccer Player of the Year as selected by the National Team Program. This marks the fourth time that the Canadian captain has been named the Para Soccer Player of the Year.

Samuel Charron scored his milestone 50th international goal for Canada in 2023 and he led the nation in goalscoring for the seventh time in his career. He was limited to just four matches at the Parapanamerican Games in Santiago, Chile, but he still scored three goals and one assist. Canada’s captain now has 51 career goals in 60 seven-a-side international matches. In club football, Charron moved overseas and played eleven-a-side football with Westside Strikers FC in the Australian State League.
