Each month, Liverpool FC congratulates players at all LFC International Academies around the world who exemplify The Liverpool Way.
Congratulations to November Player of the Month Ethan Choi (2009 Bridgewater Pre Elite Boys)
Here is what coach Jeff had to say!
'Ethan is the most respectful young man I have had the chance to coach. He always greets me with a smile and thanks me on his way out whether we win, lose, or draw. Ethan has emerged as the primary free kick taker for his team, always making good decisions and ultimately making his teammates better. He is a true winner that portrays the Liverpool Core values both on and off the field that I could nominate every month!'
Also, well done to those who were nominated after an excellent month on and off the field; Audrey Tombeno, Kiley Cook, Jenna Cadieux, Spencer Rushnak, Ava Forbes Smith, Elizabeth Healy, Allison Powderly and Will Roderick.
Congratulations to our Player of the Month for October, Laura Farquhar!! Laura plays for the U13 Girls Connecticut team, and Coach Hollands, and this is what he had to say.
"Our Connecticut teams are all new to the club this fall and it's been a pleasure having them join our Liverpool family. The players have all embraced the 4 core Liverpool values of the Liverpool Way and none more so than Laura Farquhar, who could recite all 4 by the end of our second practice.
In addition to being able to recite all four values, Laura has shown Commitment, Ambition, Dignity, and Unity in all aspects of her performance on and off the field. This is particularly evident during the club practice nights when Laura's infectious enthusiasm for the game spreads throughout her teammates and all other players in attendance. This has helped to create a real sense of Unity among the Connecticut players - whether they are a U9 or a U14 they pull together as a group."
Well done Laura!! Also, Congratulations to those nominated for the award; Summer Girard, Edvin Valentukevicius, Nathan Perry, Kaelin Greer, Addison Cheney, Brady Hill, Will Rodrigues and Caroline Auger!
Congratulations to our September Player of the Month, Brooklyn Metzler!
Here's what her Coach, Chris Green had to say.
'Brooklyn displays all 4 core values that represent the “Liverpool Way”. Her ambition is truly displayed on the pitch, whether it is her dink move to get by her opponent or her game intelligence when shooting on goal (placement in the corner). With 2 older sisters also in the club (Grey & Parker), Brooklyn has been blessed with that competitive nature, having to go against her sisters when practicing at home. On the pitch it’s the same. Brooklyn is well liked by her teammates, as they want her to be on their team at the end of practice SSG’s, which says a lot about respect for her at such a young age. Soccer is a team sport and Brooklyn is the ultimate team player. Very unselfish on the ball. Will take on an opponent, but again shows her game intelligence, as she often passes to teammates that are open and have space.
Brooklyn is a joy to coach and look forward to seeing her continued success.'
Also a congratulations and well done to all that were nominated below;
Nathan Tuffy, George Baroud, Ciaran Duffy, Leighton Feynus, Addyson Curley, Adzair Cruz, Avery Curtis, Matt Horgan and Kennedy Smith
April Player of the Month- Maddelyn Tassinari-G04 Premier 1 Central.
Congratulations Maddie! Here’s what Coach Green had to say:
“Maddie, although quiet in nature, is tearing it up on the pitch. Maddie displays all four of the LFC core values which I could discuss each in detail, but I would have to say her ambition on the pitch has taken a dramatic positive step forward this year. From being a player that was hesitant going into tackles and now dominating her 1 v 1’s. From a player that would rush a pass to a player who now already knows who she is going to pass to before she does (game intelligence) and being very successful. A player that would be subbed in games to now a player that has become so valuable to her team, she plays the whole game. What a transformation as a player. Keep it going Maddie-Great Job!”
Well done Maddie, and congratulations!#TheLiverpoolWay
Also congratulations to those nominated, Josh Murray, Jasmine Moran, Addison Cheney, Mason Cruza, Kylie Dorsey.
Gabe Noguer - 99-00B NPL
Congratulations Gabe. Here is what coach John McCully had to say!
"Gabe is the leader of our defensive unit and has been named one of our team captains. During the Jefferson Cup in Virginia, he showed Ambition in his play and performed brilliantly in all 3 of our games. He commands our back line and is always ready to match up with the oppositions top attacking players. While Gabe is a defensive standout, he is able to get forward on set pieces and was able to find the back of the net at Jeff Cup and get on the score sheet. It is an absolute pleasure to be Gabe's coach and I am excited to see him and his teammates in competitive league play this Spring!"
Congrats Gabe. Also well done to all those nominated for March Player of the Month including, Brady Hill, Grace McGettrick, Dylan Ciccone, Riley Reid Davis, Olivia Greiner, Allison Powderly, Kiley Dorsey, Taylor Reed and Jen Wegmen.
Congrats to Carly Schofield who is our February Player of the Month! Here's what her coach Greg Visinho had to say, "Carly is a dynamic player who plays every game as hard as she can. It has been so wonderful to see her back on the field! She sustained an injury that has kept her off the soccer field for several months. During this time she has kept a positive attitude, which can be very difficult to do. During her rehab she was at EVERY training session and game. She was so committed not only to her team but to herself and getting back on the field. She supported her teammates all of the time even though it was killing her not to be on the field. She has overcome a lot over these past few months but you wouldn't know it because when she stepped back on the field to play she didn't miss a beat. She was flying around causing defenders all types of problems. She exudes all of the qualities of a Liverpool Player! We are so glad to have her back on the field, working hard, smiling and playing #theliverpoolway"
Also, we'd like to congratulate those nominated by their coaches for player of the Month;
Alex Phaneuf, Kylie Dorsey, Liam O'Neill, Amanda Dustin, Jackson Veugen, Addison Cheney, Abigail Diamond, Sean Catino, George Baroud and Riley Connors. Well done everyone!
