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.

At the end of August, Eddies’ midfielder Chris Nurse was named the player of the month after he went on a three-game scoring streak.

Before Fordyce, the last FCE player of the week? That came at the end of April, when Shaun Saiko got the award for scoring the match-winning penalty against San Antonio. 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. Edmonton’s other Player of the Week winner came at the end of April, when Shaun Saiko got the award for scoring the match-winning penalty against San Antonio.Last week, Saiko was demoted to the youth team for the remainder of the FCE season, and coach Colin Miller confirmed the team’s all-time leading scorer would be leaving the club at the end of the season.

    Michael Cox also took a Player of the Week Award, I believe in Week 6 of the Spring session.
