XTREME FUNDRAISER FOR YOUTH SOCCER CLUB

Local  club  pulls  in  cash  through   FCE  fundraiser — By  Andreas  Morse

June  3  was  special  for  more  than   one  reason.  Yes,  the  Eddies  were  tak-­ ing   on   the   Atlanta   Silverbacks   on   a   beautiful   June   afternoon   at   Clarke   Stadium.   The   fans   and   supporters  

were  in  full  voice  that  day,  which  was   in   no   small   part   due   to   FC   Edmon-­ ton’s  biggest  ticket-­selling  fundraiser   in  club  history. On   a   day   dubbed   “Xtreme   FC   Day�,  the  Eddies  teamed  up  with  elite   youth  soccer  club  Xtreme  FC  to  raise   money   for   the   locally   based   soccer   team.  In  total,  Xtreme  FC  was  able  to   raise   over   $15,000   by   including   the  

cost  in  the  club’s  registration  fees. “We   strive   to   offer   the   best   op-­ portunities   for   our   players   to   fos-­ ter   physical,   mental   and   emotional   growth   and   development   on   and   off   the   soccer   pitch,â€?   said   Edina   Hoopern,   Xtreme   FC   administrator.   Âł$V D QRQSURÂżW RUJDQL]DWLRQ ZH DUH constantly   looking   for   fun   and   excit-­ ing  was  to  fundraise  to  keep  our  fees

WAG The  Eddie  introduces  the   people  behind  the  scenes…  

Rebecca  Ferguson #18  Paul  Hamilton’s  fiancée – Q:  How  is  a  Calgary  girl  enjoying   her  time  in  the  City  of  Champions? A:Edmonton  has  been  great!  I   thought  I  would  hate  Edmonton,   just  because  all  Calgarians  do  -­  but   I’m  really  enjoying  adventuring  in   a  new  city. Q:  If  you  could  bring  one  thing  from   Calgary  and  put  it  in  Edmonton,   what  would  it  be? A:  I  would  probably  bring  my   family,  we  haven’t  lived  in  the   same  city  since  I  moved  away  for   school  so  it  would  be  nice  to  have   them  around.  If  they  didn’t  want   to  move  I’d  bring  Chinooks  -­  I  love   the  warm  wind  and  blue  sky  in  the   winter. Q:    You  just  recently  got  engaged   to  Hammy,  can  you  tell  us  how  he   proposed? A:  It  was  perfect,  on  NYE  day   we  went  for  lunch  to  catch  up  as   Christmas  had  been  really  busy.   We  had  decided  not  to  exchange   Christmas  presents,  but  over  lunch   Paul  told  me  he  had  a  surprise  -­  he   had  organized  for  our  good  friend   Leah  to  meet  us  and  take  some  pic-­ tures.  I  was  thrilled  with  this  idea   as  we  don’t  have  many  pictures  of   the  two  of  us,  so  we  drove  to  Scots-­ man’s  Hill  which  overlooks  the   entire  city.  We  walked  along  the   ridge  of  the  hill  waiting  for  Leah,

WIVES & GIRLFRIENDS OF FC EDMONTON

I  was  absorbed  with  with  plan-­ ning  my  “poses”  and  making  sure   my  hair  didn’t  stick  to  my  lip  gloss   when  he  pulled  me  aside  and  got   down  on  one  knee  and  asked  me  to   marry  him.  It  was  perfectly  Paul,   short  and  sweet,  and  of  course  I   said  yes!  To  top  it  off  Paul  had  Leah   and  her  sister  on  stake  out  taking   pictures  of  the  proposal.  The  best   part  was  being  able  to  go  home  and   celebrate  with  my  family  before   heading  off  to  a  NYE  party  with  all   our  close  friends.  

A:  Ummmm  TBD.   Q:    If  Hammy  were  ever  to  cut  his   f lowing  locks,  what  style  would  you   want  him  to  wear? A:  I  let  him  do  his  own  thing  now,   before  he  met  me  he  had  a  pretty   solid  bowl  cut  so  I’m  happy  with   the  progress  he  has  made.  My  little   sister  occasionally  sends  Paul  pic-­ tures  of  Justin  Bieber,  or  slips  him   photos  of  the  latest  and  greatest   from  Chace  Crawford.  

Q:  When’s  the  wedding  and  where? A:  The  date  is  set  for  December  31st   2012  in  Calgary.  eeek!  Less  than  6   months  away,  I  suppose  I  should   start  doing  some  planning! Q:  You  also  added  a  new  addition   to  your  small  family,  tell  us  about   Dash. A:  She  is  the  best!  Dash  is  a  3  2/1   month  old  Great  Dane  /  Mastiff   cross  so  she  is  going  to  be  big  big   big.  For  me,  the  best  part  about   Dash  is  having  someone  to  come   home  to  when  the  boys  are  travel-­ ing,  it’s  just  nice  to  have  company.   Plus  she  is  a  d  o  r  a  b  l  e!! Q:  Who  buys  the  shampoo  in  the   Hamilton/Ferguson  household? A:  Funny,  one  of  the  biggest  fights   we  have  ever  had  erupted  after  I   used  the  last  of  the  conditioner.   We  now  use  and  purchase  our  own   hair  products.   Q:  Speaking  of  that,  whose  name   will  you  be  taking?

Q:    Your  fiancé  is  having  a  great   season  on  the  pitch,  if  he  were  to   ever  move  on  to  another  club,  where   would  you  like  him  to  end  up? A:  As  long  as  he’s  happy  I’m  pretty   cool  with  anywhere.  We  are  young   and  haven’t  had  a  chance  to  take   many  trips  together  because  of  soc-­ cer  so  somewhere  in  Europe  would   be  awesome.  If  we  were  to  stay  in   North  America  I  would  love  to  be   on  the  West  Coast,  Van,  Seattle,   Portland...  we  both  went  to  school   in  Vancouver  so  we  have  a  great   group  of  friends  in  the  surround-­ ing  area.  

Q:  Last  month’s  WAG,  Lyndsay   Stewart,  said  her  favourite  player   on  the  team  was  Paul.  Who’s  yours? A:  M.L.  #11  -­  he’s  a  total  stud.  Plus   his  roommate  is  pretty  sweet!

KENNY CACEROS —OFF SEASON SIGNING, KENNY CACEROS, HAS STARTED TO CALL EDMONTON HOME. FIND OUT

HIS FAVOURITE PARTS AND PLACES IN THE CITY OF CHAMPIONS AND HOW HE’S SETTLING IN WITH HIS NEW TEAM. Q:  With  the  hopes  of  the  Ottawa  Fury   joining  the  NASL  in  2014  -­  what  are   your  predictions  for  the  team  in  a   QHZOHDJXH":LOOLWIHHOOLNHDFRQÀLFW of  interest  when  the  two  teams  play   in  the  future? A:  The  Ottawa  Fury  has  really  ce-­ mented  its  spot  as  a  successful  club   ERWKRQDQGRIIWKH¿HOGZLWKJUHDW ownership,  coaches,  and  staff.  I  have   absolutely  no  doubt  in  my  mind  that   they  will  continue  that  success  in  the   NASL.  But  having  said  that,  when   the  two  teams  meet  in  the  future  and   I’m  wearing  an  FC  Edmonton  jersey,   Ottawa  is  the  enemy  on  that  day.

be  biased  in  that  sense.  But  it’s  a  nice   change,  I  enjoy  change.  A  new  city   and  meeting  new  people  is  always   fun.  Edmonton  is  a  really  nice  city,   but  I  have  to  admit  though,  it  has   some  crazy  weather,  it’s  very  unpre-­ dictable. Q:  Favourite  part  about  Edmonton   so  far?

Q:  How  is  the  City  of  Edmonton  com-­ paring  to  Ottawa  so  far?  

A:  It’s  hard  to  pick  just  one.  I’ve  had   a  great  experience  here  so  far.  The   people  here  are  great,  very  friendly   and  welcoming.  The  river  valley  is   also  really  nice,  a  lot  of  nice  trails   and  scenery.  The  sun  stays  up   forever  so  the  days  feel  long  which   I  like.  The  city  has  a  lot  to  offer,  I’m   very  happy  here.

A:  It’s  tough  to  compare  the  two.   Ottawa  is  home  to  me  so  I’ll  always  

Q:  Best  place  that  you’ve  travelled  to   -­  either  with  the  team  or  personally

rituals  or  superstitions?

A:  I  played  with  a  team  in  the  US  one   year  and  we  travelled  to  Germany   for  a  few  weeks  and  did  a  tour  play-­ ing  against  youth  Bundesliga  teams   and  that  had  to  be  my  favourite   place.  The  people  were  amazing,   they  held  a  huge  parade  for  us  and   treated  us  so  well.  On  top  of  that,   playing  against  some  of  the  top   youth  teams  in  the  world  made  the   experience  that  much  better.  

A:  Might  sound  pretty  boring  but  I   don’t  have  any  rituals  like  that.  I’m  

Q:  Do  you  have  any  preference  over   the  number  you  wear  with  a  team? A:  I’ve  always  been  or  wanted  to  be   lucky  number  13.  But  unfortunately   Jonathan  Joseph-­Augustin  beat  me  

not  a  superstitious  kind  of  guy.   Q:  Favourite  thing  to  do  with  your   time  off? A:  I’m  always  up  for  anything,  my   girlfriend  and  I  like  to  walk  around   and  see  the  city.  We  like  to  go  eat  at   different  restaurants  and  try  new   things.  We  went  to  a  gun  range,   played  disc  golf  (I  didn’t  know  they   had  actual  disc  golf  courses),  we’re   planning  a  camping  trip  in  Banff.   We’ll  do  anything,  but  sometimes   when  I  have  time  off  I  want  to  do   absolutely  nothing  but  relax.

WWW.FCEDMONTON.COM

Q:  Highlight  of  your  soccer  career   so  far?  

A:  I  think  my  highlight  would  have   to  be  playing  the  Whitecaps  at  BC   Place.  Even  though  we  lost,  we   played  better  soccer  the  majority  of   WKHJDPH$QGWKDWZDVP\ÂżUVWWLPH playing  in  front  of  15,000  people  and   on  national  TV.  That’s  the  kind  of   thing  I  dreamed  about  as  a  kid.   Q:  What  was  the  best  piece  of  advice   you  were  given  and  who  gave  it  to   you?  (Soccer  or  otherwise) A:  It  might  sound  extremely  clichĂŠ   but  I  think  it’s  very  true  and  applies   to  just  about  anything.  “Whether  you   think  you  can,  or  you  think  you  can’t   —  either  way,  you’re  right.â€?  Now  I   know  it’s  a  quote  by  Henry  Ford  but   a  coach  I  had  when  I  was  young  told   me  that  and  it  stuck  with  me.

Shaun   Saiko   made   a   nice   run   down  the  left  side  in  the  21st  minute,   beating   several   defenders   along   the   way   before   cutting   it   back   into   the   box.   The   Strikers   defender   was   the   ÂżUVWWRJHWKLVIRRWRQWKHEDOOKRZHYHU and  it  was  cleared  for  a  corner. The  Strikers  were  forced  to  make   WKHLU ÂżUVW VXEVWLWXWLRQ LQ WKH WK minute.  FCE’s  Paul  Hamilton  went  in   for  a  50/50  ball,  he  collided  w ith  A ndy   Herron  who  injured  his  leg  on  t he  play   and  was  replaced  by  Aly  Hasan. The   skies   opened   up   in   the   33rd   minute,   just   in   time   for   a   turn-­ ing   point   in   the   game.   Strikers’   Abe   Same  Teams,  Opposite  Result   in  Fort  Lauderdale: Strikers  hold  Eddies  off  the   board — By  Jill  Horbay   Fort   Lauderdale,   Florida   (June   16,   2012)   –   For   the   second   time   in   less   than   a   week,   FC   Ed-­ monton   and   the   Fort   Lauderdale   Strikers  played  a  1-­0  game. This  time  it  was  down  in  Flor-­ ida  and  the  Eddies  came  out  on  the   losing  end. FCE   had   a   chance   to   jump   over   the   Strikers   with   a   win   and   end  with  14  points  but  the  Strikers   held  the  majority  of  the  possession   early,   and   tested   FC   Edmonton’s   ‘keeper   Lance   Parker   a   number   of   times  inside  the  first  20  minutes. The   tempo   of   the   game   changed   slightly   when   Strikers   forward   Leopoldo   Morales   went   down   after   a   challenge   and   had   to   be   taken   off   the   field   by   paramed-­ ics   with   a   compound   fracture   of   the  leg. When   the   play   continued,   the   Eddies   were   unable   to   find   their   spot  in  the  game  –  Parker  continu-­ ing   to   make   a   couple   of   big   saves   from   Strikers   forward   Andy   Her-­ ron   and   midfielder   Mark   Ander-­ son.   Chris   Kooy,   who   partnered   Paul  Hamilton  in  the  centre  of  de-­ fence,  also  had  to  step  up  and  make   a   save   when   Herron   beat   Parker   from  a  tight  angle.

Thompson   was   brought   down   in   the   box,  according  to  the  referee,  and  was   awarded  a  penalty  kick.  Parker  made   a   diving   save   to   keep   it   out   but   An-­ tonio   Rago   was   sent   off   for   the   chal-­ lenge,  leaving  the  Eddies  with  10  men   for  the  remainder  of  the  game. The   teams   went   into   the   locker   rooms  at  half  time  tied  0-­0. Coach  Harry  Sinkgraven  brought   Michael  Cox  in  for  Paul  Craig  up  front   at  the  restart,  which  ended  up  being  a   pivotal  substitution. The   second   half   was   much   the   VDPH DV WKH ÂżUVW %RWK WHDPV VKDUHG possession  of  the  ball  and  half-­chanc-­ es  were  available  on  both  ends  of  the   pitch.

The  Strikers  picked  up  the  pres-­ sure   after   the   goal   but   the   Eddies   backline   held   strong   and   helped   /DQFH3DUNHUSRVWKLVÂżUVWVKXWRXWRI the  season  and  third  Eddies’  victory.

FC   Edmonton’s   head   coach   Harry   Sinkgraven  said  at  half  time. With  only  two  natural  defend-­ ers   on   the   field,   in   Paul   Hamilton   and   Fabrice   Lassonde,   the   Eddies   were  perhaps  lucky  to  not  be  down   by   a   goal   or   two   going   into   the   break. FC  Edmonton  came  out  for  the   second  half  an  improved  side  how-­ ever.  Michael  Cox  and  Shaun  Saiko   showed   how   well   they   can   play   to-­ gether   with   Cox   having   two   good   chances   early   on,   but   his   shots   were  high  and  just  wide  of  the  net. It   remained   difficult   for   the   Eddies  to  get  out  of  defensive  mode   as  they  were  set  against  the  waves   of   pressure   from   the   Fort   Lauder-­ GDOH 6WULNHUV ,W WRRN  PLQXWHV for   Andy   Herron   to   find   his   way   past   Lance   Parker   and   put   the   Strikers  up  1-­0. Coach   Sinkgraven   continued   to   add   to   the   FC   Edmonton   attack   as   he   put   Yashir   Pinto   into   the   game,  but  they  were  unable  to  find   that  final  finishing  ball.   “Comparing   the   first   half   to   the  second  half,  we  played  the  sec-­ ond   half   better,�   Sinkgraven   said   after  the  game.  “We  had  more  con-­ trol  of  the  game  in  the  second  half   and  played  well.�     FC   Edmonton   slip   to   seventh   place  in  the  league  –  as  the  Caroli-­ na  RailHawks  defeated  the  Atlanta   Silverbacks   -­   but   the   Eddies   still   have   a   game   in   hand.   FC   Edmon-­ ton   continues   its   road-­trip   with   a   game   against   the   RailHawks   next   Saturday  June  23  (K.O.  5pm  MDT).

The   ‘Hawks   took   that   two-­goal   league  into  the  half. “I   think   the   start   of   the   game   wasn’t   good,â€?   said   FCE   head   coach   Harry   Sinkgraven.   “We   lost   the   ball   too   easily   and   the   start   wasn’t   good.   In  the  defense,  we  gave  chances  away   too   easily   as   well.   Cox   made   some   good  runs  but  we  have  to  improve  on   that  in  the  second  half.â€?

The  chances  for  t he  v isitors  came   often  in  the  second  half,  a  chippy  half   in   which   a   number   of   yellow   cards   were  shown.  But  in  the  end,  the  Rail-­ Hawks  held  serve  on  their  home  pitch   and   the   Eddies   return   home   without   a  point. “We   played   better   in   the   second   KDOI WKDQ WKH ÂżUVW EXW XQIRUWXQDWHO\ no   goals,â€?   Sinkgraven   said   at   full   time.  “We  had  some  good  crosses  but   no  goals.  We  showed  spirit  in  the  sec-­ ond  half  though.â€?

A FRESH CANADIAN RESERVE TEAM LIGHTING SIDE CAN’T UP THE AMSL TAKE THE EARLY ADVANTAGE Canadian  U-­15  Side  loses  3-­0   to  Mexico By  Jill  Horbay — It   was   FC   Edmonton   Re-­ serve   player   Aymar   Sigue’s   first   trip   down   to   Mexico   and   also   his   first   time   pulling   on   the   red   and   white  jersey  for  the  U-­15  Canadian   VTXDG The   team   participated   in   the   Copa   Mexico   de   Naciones   Sub-­15,   a  boy’s  U-­15  tournament  in  Ciudad   de  Mexico,  which  ran  June  18  -­  24.   The   team   suffered   a   3-­0   loss   to   Mexico   in   its   first   game   of   the   tournament.   “It   was   our   first   time   playing   together,   but   once   we   start   train-­ ing  together  more,  we’ll  get  better,”  

Sigue   said   confidently   after   his   first  match  for  the  Canadian  side.   Even   though   he’d   only   played   one   game   with   the   team,   Sigue   said   he’d   had   a   great   experience   meeting  and  playing  with  his  team   members  from  other  provinces  and   hoped   that   the   tournament   and   WLPHZLWKWKH8VTXDGZLOOSUR-­ pel  him  into  other  national  sides  in   the  future.   The   young   Canucks’   second   game   was   against   another   Mexi-­ can   side   which   they   lost   1-­0.   They   lost  by  the  same  score  line  against   Chile   and   finished   off   the   tourna-­ ment  with  a  friendly  against  Costa   Rica   where   they   picked   up   a   3-­0   win.

Coach  Paulus  is  “extremely   happy”  with  his  team’s  per-­ formance By  Andreas  Morse — During   the   month   of   June,   the   Junior   Eddies   have   continued   their  run  of  impressive  play  in  the   AMSL,   compiling   a   record   of   four   wins,  one  loss,  and  one  tie.     Overall   in   season   play,   the   FC   Edmonton  Reserves  have  run  their   UHFRUG WR  ZLWK  JRDOV IRU and   only   six   against   (as   of   June   25).   After   a   disappointing   1-­0   loss   to   the   Calgary   Villains   on   June   1,   where  the  team  only  conceded  one   shot   on   goal   and   that   being   a   PK,   the   young   prospects   have   since   been   on   a   five   game   undefeated   streak   that   has   seen   them   post   three  clean  sheets.   “In   each   of   the   reserve   team   games   during   this   month,   the   Junior   Eddies   have   been   able   to   maintain  an  advantage  in  ball  pos-­ session   over   their   opponents   as   they  really  do  look  to  keep  the  ball   on  the  ground,”  said  Reserve  Team  

WWW.FCEDMONTON.COM
