Robert Earnshaw

Thank You Earnie!

 

We want to congratulate @robertearnshaw on a wonderful career as a player!  #Agent88, thanks for the one season you spent representing us on the pitch.  Your two goals for #WFC2 in #USL (including one against #Se4tt1e) were only outdone by your two massive goals for the first team.

Thanks for your header against Houston in our final League fixture of the season, which helped secure our best ever finish in the table.  We also can't express how grateful we are for your late match winner vs. Portland back at the end of March.  With a number of distractions taking place off the pitch around this game, you helped turn a tense day into one of great joy...our first home League victory over the Timbers in our #MLS era!  You will also be remembered for being a part of the squad that helped us lift our very first #VoyageursCup!

Our deep appreciation for your contributions on the field is only magnified by your openness to connect off of it.  This photo taken by @bobfridimages (@whitecapsfc photographer), of you leading #TheHumba after that Houston match, exemplifies your connection with #VanCitySupporters.  One of our partners, #MiniUltra Matthew, got your top in the kit exchange that night and he will never forget the occasion.

We look forward to having you influence the future generations of #OurClub as the coach of our U14s.  We are also happy that you'll be passing on your wisdom to our Strikers in the first team as well.  Know that, especially as you make this transition, #WeAlwaysGotYourBack.

Much Love,

One of the Collective

We ended yesterday with Birthday wishes and we'll start today on the same note. Happy 34th Birthday to @robertearnshaw! You have only been at ‪#‎OurClub‬ for a short period of time, but we are grateful for your contributions off and on the pitch. Thanks for helping build & being a part of the strong sense of community within the squad and thanks for your initial play on our turf...especially this moment of ‪#‎Quality‬ finishing! We can't wait for more like it! We look forward to ‪#‎GivingOurAll‬ in support of you and all our players on Wednesday!

Much Love,
