October 2014

October 1st

With 4 games left for our club in the regular season, we are scheduled for a home game against Houston on the 4th, a road game against NY Red bulls on the 10th, home game against Los Angeles on the 17th and our season finale is the 24th against Columbus on the road.

The MLS Wild Card is scheduled for the 28th of October

Jimmy Delgado of Hamilton FC won the MLS Player of the month for September. In 4 games he scored 7 goals.

October 2nd

With how well our club has done this season the media predicted us to finish 20th and we are 1st in the East, we have sent a possible contract extention to our goalkeeper Donovan Ricketts. He is 38 yr old currently making 5k per week and he wanted 3k so we will agree to the 2k in savings as we sent his agent an offer for 3k for 1 yr.

We need him for atleast 1 more year to help develop our possible back p goalie next season or our future goalie that will take over for Ricketts when he retires.

October 3rd

With Jimmy Delgado signing that contract extension earlier in the season our assistant is telling us to maybe improve the contract in the near future so that the player does not become unhappy with his contract situation. I am ok with that

He is signed until December 2017 at 1.2k per week and he would like a contract until December 2018. With how well he has done as of late we are happy to increase his salary to 2.8k more a week.
