FCE’s Fordyce named NASL Player of the Week By Steven Sandor Posted on October 7, 2013 2 0 581 Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Daryl Fordyce has been named the NASL Player of the Week. FC Edmonton’s Northern Irish striker got both goals in the team’s 2-1 win over Carolina, Sunday. Fordyce nodded home the opener after fellow Northern Irishman Alberta Watson flicked on a long throw from Corey Hertzog. Fordyce’s second goal was smashed just underneath the crossbar at Clarke Stadium, after right back Edson Edward made a terrific run up the wing and pushed a pass to the top of the box. Fordyce made a clever run to find a dead spot in the box, where there were no Carolina defenders to be found. Fordyce is the third fourth Eddie to win a Player of the Week/Month award this season.

That came in the middle of May, when Michael Cox, who will miss the rest of the season with injury, was named for a two-goal performance.
