  • Rohan Ricketts scores a hat-trick!


    ccs-54-140264009774_thumb.jpgFormer Toronto FC midfielder and TSN soccer analyst Rohan Ricketts is back at it, still trying to catch on in Europe.

    Today, he suited up for League Two's Southend United in their preseason friendly against Great Wakering Rovers of the Ishtmian League Division One North (English eighth tier) and hit for three goals, leading Southend to a 5-0 victory. Ricketts' performance was impressive enough for Shrimpers manager Paul Sturrock to talk openly about offering the one-time TFCer a contract.


    "I was impressed by Rohan and will now be talking to his agent and seeing what figures are mentioned," Sturrock told southendunited.co.uk.

    "Rohan wants to play football and has shown his commitment by coming down on the train from Coventry to play in a trialist game and then again on Tuesday night. He isn't at full match sharpness yet so there is more to come but he`s hungry to play and he did very well."

    Here at CSN, we've chronicled his post-TFC attempts at latching on with a club in written articles and discussion on It's Called Football. While he provided a bit of light-hearted fodder at times with his seeming penchant for placing his media career over his supposed football career, we wish nothing but the best for him.

    League Two isn't exactly the big time, but it just may be a suitable level for a man who had seemingly lost his way. At least he'll get paid if he latches on with the Shrimpers, unlike one of his previous gigs.
