Club Career

After playing college soccer for the University of New Haven, Serioux started his pro career with the Toronto Lynx in the A-League. He then moved to England to join Millwall. Serioux is known to have one of the longest throws in the sport, once setting up a goal against Leicester City, from a throw-in at the half way line.[1] Opponents tend to stay close to him at throw-ins, he once got himself sent off by throwing the ball in an opponents face on purpose, during a game against QPR.[2]

Major League Soccer

Serioux joined the MLS in March 2006, signing with the MetroStars,[3] leaving England in order to take care of his ill mother.[4] However, he never played for the club, and was traded to Houston Dynamo in exhange for Danny O'Rourke before the regular season started.[5] After one season with Houston, where Serioux played well and helped the team to the MLS Cup,[6] he was drafted by Toronto FC in 2006 MLS Expansion Draft. He stayed with Toronto for only a few hours before being dealt to FC Dallas for Ronnie O'Brien.[7] In his first season with FC Dallas he was held to only 10 games because of a serious injury.

In May 2008, Serioux was fined $1,000 for a dangerous tackle on David Beckham, after telling The Sun newspaper that he and a few other players would be "going after" the England international midfielder.[8]

Serioux was traded to Toronto FC on February 24, 2009 for a first round pick and allocation money.[9]

Serioux's contract was not renewed by Toronto FC for the 2010 MLS Season. Houston Dynamo traded a third round 2011 MLS SuperDraft pick for his rights[10].

International career

He made his debut for Canada in an August 2004 World Cup qualification match against Guatemala. By December 2009, he earned a total of 19 caps, scoring 1 goal. He has so far represented Canada in 8 FIFA World Cup qualification matches[11].
