TWU’s Hicks on trial

Former Spartans goalkeeper has earned a tryout with WFC2

Trinity Western University men’s soccer alum Andrew Hicks will get an opportunity to prove himself to the Vancouver Whitecaps FC2 brass, as the former Spartans goalkeeper earned a trial with the local USL (United Soccer League) side.

Hicks, who graduated from TWU this past spring, is coming off an impressive season with TSS Rovers of the PDL (Premier Development League) in which he was named the team’s most valuable player.

The TWU keeper from Surrey capped his university career by helping the Spartans to a 9-5-2 Canada West regular record and bronze medal at the conference championships.

Whitecaps FC 2 acts as a feeder team to Vancouver Whitecaps FC, who play in the MLS (Major League Soccer), which is North America’s premier soccer league.

The team plays part of their home schedule at McLeod Athletic Park, including games in Langley on Aug. 27 and Sept. 6.
