Ottawa South United (competing in League1 Ontario as OSU Force), is a Canadian youth and semi-professional soccer club located in Ottawa, Ontario. The club, since 2003, has operated purely as a youth and amateur club, until a side was entered into the semi-professional League1 Ontario for 2017 season.[1] Starting in 2018, the team's home ground will be Quinn's Pointe Field, part of the Minto Recreation Complex in Barrhaven.[2]

History[edit]

Though only joining League1 Ontario in 2017, the club has a 15 year history as one of the premier academy clubs in Eastern Ontario. The Ottawa South United Soccer Club was founded in 2003 as a merger of Osgoode-Rideau Youth Soccer and South Nepean United.[3]

For the 2017 League1 season Traian Mateas was named head coach and players were recruited from the soccer programs of Carleton University and Algonquin College, as well as OSU's u-18 ranks. The team had a strong start, but was unable to keep up the pace, finishing 6th in the 8-team East Division, with a W/D/L record of 6-2-14 and a -23 goal differential. In cup play, the team reached the second round, beating ProStars FC 4:3, before losing to Durham United 1:4. Forward Marco Natoli lead the team with 10 goals across all competitions, and defender Justin Earle was named a second-team all-star.[4]

Peter Mapendere will coach the side for the upcoming 2018 season[5]
