Wyn Belotte, Canadian football player with Haitian roots

Wyn Belotte is a promising Canadian footballer who was a standout at the Nantes youth academy. The academy club is recognised for its rigid but effective youth system, as well as the national teams at 17. Belotte scored four goals in World Under-17 Championship qualifying tournament. Then he decided he wanted first-team football and bolted to Norkopping in the Swedish Premier where he couldn't play until turning 18.


Though Belotte's parents were from Haiti, he was born in Canada in 1984. He is not the first footballer of his family as his uncle André played for the Haiti national soccer team of under-16. Belotte was called for the youth national team for the World Youth Cup competition in 2001.

Wyn Belotte was loaned out to Angelholms in the Swedish second tier, where he didn't get to play. Both teams got relegated from their respective divisions. He then in 2002 signed a contract with IFK Norrköping. He was also signed by Wisla Krakow as to play for the reserves in 2003-04 season.

Wyn Belotte returned to Canada and played in the QCSL World Cup (indoor) competition in Montreal. He tried out for the Impact, but his work ethic was again lacking and he spent time on the field looking at his girlfriend in the stands. He was signed by the Toronto Lynx for 2005 and scored a couple of goals for them in USL First Division.

Wyn also played in an unofficial match against TNT Soca Warriors team for Haiti side in 2006.
