Anthony Christopher Bahadur (born 25 February 1988 in Toronto, Ontario) is a Canadian soccer player who formerly played in the United States for AFC Cleveland and FC Edmonton in the Nasl. Currently playing for Bec Tero Sasana in Thailand.

Career[edit]

Adur played for the Italia Shooters in 2006, but had been released into free agency prior to the 2007 Canadian Soccer League season[1] and was later contracted with Caribbean Selects.[2] He has also appeared for Toronto Lynx and North York Astros (CSL). Astros finished runners-up in the National Division and were knocked out in quarter final of the Playoffs.

On 3 February 2009 signed a contract with Sengkang Punggol FC, he joined from GS United,[1] here in Singapore will play with Murphy Wiredu.[2]

In May 2012, he signed with AFC Cleveland of the NPSL.

He began his professional career with Cruz Azul in Mexico, then went to Singapore, Israel, Thailand, over to Egypt and back to Thailand before eventually ending up in Edmonton. He wants to one day wear the Canadian national jersey. But, even though he boasted a solid scoring record in Thailand, it wasn’t going to put him on the radar of the national program.

Before coming to FC Edmonton on trial, the Canadian striker was training with the Columbus Crew where his cousin, Trinidad and Tobago international Kevan George, is under contract. He was in Singapore, then made it to the youth squad of Maccabi Haifa, one of Israel’s top teams. He then moved to Thailand, spending parts of 2011 and 2012 with TOT SC. He spent time on trial with the Silverbacks of the NASl in 2014.

“Maccabi was the highest level I’ve played,” said Adur. “It’s football at a Champions League level. It took me a lot to get into that team… I loved the (Thailand) experience. You have a lot of teams in Bangkok, so when the game is on, the city shuts down.”
