FC Edmonton finalizes deal for Nicklaw; team sends Plumhoff to Jacksonville By Steven Sandor Posted on July 6, 2016 Comments Off on FC Edmonton finalizes deal for Nicklaw; team sends Plumhoff to Jacksonville 0 538 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Jason Plumhoff It’s official. Fullback Shawn Nicklaw, who had been on trial with the club for more than a week, is now an Eddie. FC Edmonton finalized a deal with the Jacksonville Armada Wednesday, sending forward Jason Plumhoff the other way. Plumhoff scored one goal for the Eddies in limited playing time during the spring season. “It is a situation with Jason where he is playing second, third, fourth fiddle at the moment because we have players ahead of him,” said FCE coach Colin Miller in a release. “Those players are playing well. The trade is a good fit for us, it is basically one in and one out. It is a great move for all parties involved.” With the loss of fullback Eddie Edward to the Ottawa Fury, the Eddies needed to shore up the position. In Nicklaw, they get a veteran who has not only NASL experience, but has played in Denmark and Iceland, as well. Nicklaw has represented Guam internationally. “Shawn is actually a player that I have known within the league and one of the players that we targeted when we played against Jacksonville because he was a threat moving forward,” Miller said. “He is a very attack-minded fullback and the fact that he knows the league and has played very well made the transaction a no-brainer for us. Speaking to him, he is very enthusiastic about coming to play with FC Edmonton.” Trades between Canadian and American NASL sides are rare, as they both pay out their contracts in different currencies.
