Four Whitecaps FC prospects are currently signed to Fresno FC. You can find the list of assigned players at whitecapsfc.com/USL.
Assistant coach Robert Earnshaw has also joined the Foxes from the ‘Caps, while Whitecaps FC president Bob Lenarduzzi is set to fly down to Fresno to take in the first match.
