After a year or so in our U23/PDL/Reserve side, Ethen Sampson earned an ‪#‎MLS‬ deal in March of 2014. His role in the team was to provide cover at rightback. He had to be patient, but all of his hard work paid off as Robbo trusted him with two starts in matches late in the season.

The Gaffer's confidence in Ethen's ability to play in the first team was based on the progression the player had made through his time in ‪#‎VanCity‬. The tough tackling ‪#‎BafanaBafana‬ Youth International really improved his positional play and decision making as he cemented his transition from being a centre back to playing on the right side of the back 4.

Ethen, we look forward to you pushing for more games in 2015. All the best as you spend the off-season with friends & family!

Much Love,

One of the Collective
