Who is/was your most influential coach and/or mentor? Why?

Why do you wear your jersey number?
I wear number 14 because my birthday is on the 14th, my wife´s is on the 7th. So 7+7 equals 14. My actual favourite jersey and old MISL number is 77 that was the perfect combination of all factors (77 = 7+7=14)

Pro Indoor

In his second year with the Lancers, Edgar came out strong and steady as a key defender on a team hungry for a championship.  Unexpectedly, he needed to take a leave of absence for family reasons during the middle of the season.  However, when he returned the former MLS player was in raw form, looking as sharp as ever.  He finished the season with a goal and two assists, but his veteran presence and composure helped a young team advance to the Eastern Divisional finals.

Edgar recorded his first season with the Lancers in the 2013-14 season where he recorded 19 blocks on defense as well as three goals and an assists for a total of nine points.

He began his professional indoor career in 200, playing nearly 150 professional indoor games, spending time with the Buffalo Blizzards and the Philadelphia Kixx. Bartolomeu led the Kixx to two MISL Championships and reached the playoffs every season he was with the team.

Pro Outdoor

He signed his first professional contract with the Toronto Lynx in 1999.  He played 18 games with the New York/ New jersey MetroStars of the MLS.  Bartolomeu has also displayed his winning tradition in the USL Pro, winning a championship with the Long Island Rough Riders.


Bartolomeu moved to Canada from Angola as a child.
