Tony Deakin Signs On For 2017
Grand Rapids Football Club is proud to announce that Tony Deakin will return for the 2017 season. The captain will feature in the center of defense and wear number 4.
“I am excited to be back with the boys in blue for another season” said Deakin. “I am looking forward to the challenge of another great season in the NPSL and I hope to help lead the boys to the National Finals this year. I will be working hard during this off season to improve and more importantly be in the best shape I can. I know with our awesome fan base, new recruits, returning players, and coaching staff we will have another successful year. I am especially looking forward to playing in the US Open Cup. Hopefully we do well and get to play one of the bigger teams”.
GRFC President Matt Roberts commented “We are very happy that Tony has decided to play another year. His leadership, toughness, and ability to defend are very valuable and have helped us to get to the point we are today. In addition to leading the team on the field, he is a great example for the younger players to aspire to off the field as well. We are excited to have Tony back to push GRFC forward”.
