Manneh, Manneh...

Happy belated 21st Birthday to our dynamic attacker @kekuta16! We hope you had a special day surrounded by family and friends. We also hope that your body heals well over the off-season.

Thanks for all of your contributions to our campaign this year! Your 7 goals and 6 assists were massive, but these numbers paint only part of the picture. It was great to see you continue to develop as a player...both offensively and defensively...and again we greatly appreciate all the hard work you are putting in. We'll see you at the end of January!

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!

Kekuta Manneh - Coming Into His Own

Looking back on @kekuta16's second season in ‪#‎VanCity‬, there were signs of his progress. He played, started, and was on the pitch for more minutes than in 2013. He scored a little less and set up the same number of goals. However, his role as the wide left of the "3" in our 4-2-3-1, continued to stretch defences and created space for fellow attackers.

One question that still remains is, what is ‪#‎Scooter‬'s best position. Although he can contribute from this wide attacking position, he has had his greatest success as and out-and-out striker. One only needs to fall into a daydream of last year's trip to ‪#‎Se4tt1e‬ to remember the possibilities of having him play up top. Not only did he bag 3 goals, but he changed the spelling of ‪#‎MiddleCa5cadia‬'s cultural centre...forever!

Kekuta seems to relish the big moments...especially playing away vs. the ‪#‎Flounders‬. In this year's ‪#‎Ca5cadiaCup‬ ‪#‎Finale‬ he scored the lone goal that maintained our status as ‪#‎RecordHolders‬ of ‪#‎OurCup‬. This is Christopher Vose's photo immediately after the goal. The celebration on the pitch was muted because of the knock Scooter had taken that meant he was replaced by @kianzfroese at the half, but in sections 300/301 all the ‪#‎CapsOnTour‬ were going crazy as we were on our way to continuing our reign as the ‪#‎KingsOfCa5cadia‬!!!

Kekuta, we hope you have a relaxing & refreshing off season. We look forward to ‪#‎GivingOurAll‬ in support of you again in 2015, as you do the same for ‪#‎OurClub‬!

Much Love,
