This team was a special group with every single player contributing on and off the field, which made for a one-of-a-kind incredible locker room. I will forever be grateful for this historic group that laid down a great foundation and something the community can be proud of. We look forward to what 2021 will bring and will continue to develop and improve on what has been built.”
The club thanks these players for being part of an exciting, challenging and overall outstanding inaugural season and wish them the best in their careers.
