Ethen Sampson

Happy Birthday Ethen!

Happy belated 22nd Birthday to @ethensampson27! We hope you had an amazing day! With your option being declined for 2016, we also wanted to thank you for your time at #OurClub over the past four years or so. It has been good to see you grow as a player, especially as you transitioned from centreback to rightback. We have fond memories of your strong tackles...keep it up!

We also wanted to thank you for leading #TheHumba after the #WFC2 victory vs. Arizona United at the end of May at Thunderbird! All the best to you for what is next in your footballing journey!

Much Love,

One of the Collective

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,
