Happy Birthday Rusty!

Happy belated 23rd Birthday to our very own #ResidencyGrad, dynamic, versatile, attacking, defending, stylish, and longest serving player at #OurClub... @rt31bert!!!

Rusty, thanks for all your hard work and dedication throughout this campaign. We know it had its ups and downs, but you always remained level headed and focused. Your commitment to the cause...the way you always #GaveYourAll...was evident to the supporters.

Your lone assist this season was a gem of a cross that perfectly found the run of @darrenmattocks for the only goal away to Salt Lake. Every #CapOnTour present will never forget our first ever win in Utah! Thank you!!!

We also want to acknowledge your performance in this year's #VoyageursCup. You were awarded the player of the tournament (nice catch!), helped captained the side, and most importantly helped us raise the #VsCup for the very first time!!! For this we are so grateful!!!

We hope your day was a good one! Enjoy the off-season, give our best to your family, and we'll see you in a month or so!

Much Love,
