Happy 29th Birthday to our former defender @wesleytknight! Wes, we hope today has been a meaningful one for you. We were saddened at the news that your playing career came to an end recently and yet we are excited to hear that you will continue to invest into the lives of young footballers via coaching.

Your contribution to ‪#‎OurClub‬ was personified on Saturday, March 19, 2011...when you generously put @eric292929's brace on a platter for him in our inaugural ‪#‎MLS‬ match. No one who was there that day will ever forget it.

In addition to ‪#‎GivingYourAll‬ on the pitch, you have always been remembered fondly amongst supporters in ‪#‎VanCity‬ for going out of your way off of it...especially to make people feel a part of the Club. This photo was taken, most likely by @bobfridimages (@whitecapsfc photographer), following a 2-0 victory at Swangard Stadium on Sunday, August 23, 2009. We had beaten Miami FC thanks to a ‪#‎CharlesGbeke‬ brace. This was a typical post match celebration. More often than not, you were the first player to come to the south ‪#‎curva‬ to connect with the @vancouversouthsiders and supporters there.

Thanks again for so many memories. Know that even as time passes, you are still missed. All the best for the coming year!

Much Love,

One of the Collective
