Player of the Month - Aidan

Date Posted: 10/1/2017

Congratulations Aidan Gant

The Gaston United coaching staff decided for the September Player of the Month, we wanted to recognize a player that has shown commitment. Someone that is dedicated to Gaston United, his coach and his teammates. With multiple great nominations, Coach Vincent's recommendation carried the day. 

Aidan has been playing since he was 5 years old and continues to this day because he loves the competition, in Aidan's words, "it is fun and intense."

His parents "are thrilled to watch him play; win or lose. He has grown up and matured as a player and now a leader on the field. We are very proud of him."

Aidan has become a leader for his team and always has a positive word for his teammates. 

Off the field, Aidan has a strong interest in science, swimming, playing his PS4 and watching his favorite player, Neymar Jr. 

Coach Vincent had this to say, "Aidan shows great commitment and work rate during practice and games.  He shows commitment to his teammates by taking the leadership rows as team captain. Aidan takes feedback on areas of improvement well and is looked up to by teammates. He is always early to practice and always willing to help others during training to understand or catch up with our practice plan."
