Hey all, I thought I would share this fun little blast from the past with you all.
I was going through some of my old Word docs for the blog, and I came across these starting XIs from Fury FC’s very first friendlies back in 2014, when the club was just starting out, and we were all finding our feet, whether the club staff, the players, or even the fans.
I thought this was fun to see, especially with the Fury FC about to kick off their 2015 preseason matches in two hours. Without further ado, here’s the Ottawa starting XIs from the 2014 preseason friendlies!
