Former ANB player renews contract in Serie A

Sept, 2017 (RELEASE) – Former female ANB Futbol athlete, Madison Solow (1992 born), has renewed her professional contract in Italy with newly promoted Serie A women’s club, Fimauto Valpolicella (female division of Serie A club Chievo Verona).  Fimauto Valpolicella (http://www.asdvalpo.it) won the women Serie B title in 2016 with Madison being a regular starter on the 1st team.  During the summer, Madison was offered a professional contract with two French clubs (ASPTT Albi and Rodez AF) after showing well in official trials.  However, she was happy with the Italian club and decided to stay in Verona, Italy.  A recent article of her decision can be found here: http://www.tggialloblu.it/pages/620084/calcio_donne/valpo_fimauto_con_solow_domani_a_sassuolo.html

Madison trained & played with ANB Futbol during her youth development years.  She was part of the Canadian Youth national team program and received a soccer scholarship from University of California (Irvine) where she graduated in 2014.  After graduation, Madison traveled to Europe to play with various clubs.  At the senior international level, Madison has represented Poland during the 2015 Euro Qualification phase.  During her offseason time in Canada, Madison would continue her training at ANB Futbol.

“Despite Mady receiving two official offers from French clubs, we fully respect Mady’s decision to stay in Italy and we wish her much success.  She will be playing at the highest level of female futbol in Italy!  As can be read in the article, she is an integral part of Fimauto Valpolicella plans.  I know she will do well since she has a fantastic work ethic and strong technical abilities built from her training days at ANB Futbol,” says ANB Academy Director, Bassam Naim.

Written by: Matthew Pedias

SAAC’s Championship Weekend at Centennial Stadium was a huge success. We would like to take this time to thank all SAAC Academies who put in a tremendous amount of work in both on and off the pitch the entire season and especially preparing for SAAC Championship Weekend. We congratulate all of you on a tremendous season and are already looking forward to seeing you again in the Spring.

2016-11-08

U15 Male:  vs. 

The opening match of Championship Weekend kicked off with Spring Champions (Toronto Skillz) and Fall Champions (Rush Canada) battling it out for the U15M Academy Cup. It was a very tense game, as neither team was able to find the back of the net in regulation time. Thus, going straight to penalty kicks. In the end, Rush Canada won 5-4 on penalties, with the final moment being captured below. SAAC congratulates both teams on a spirited affair! Great match.

U16 Male: vs. 

Next up, Spring Champions (ANB Futbol) took on Fall Champions (Power FC) in the U16M Academy Cup Final. After a scoreless first half, ANB stormed out with two goals and seemed to put the game out of reach. However, Power responded quickly after with a goal of their own. The final moments were exhilarating as Power attempted to find the tying goal, but ANB were able to hang on and secure a 2-1 victory. SAAC congratulations both teams on a great match!

U17 Male: vs. 

We follow that up with Spring Champions (FC Durham) who took on Fall Champions (Sigma FC – B2) in the U17M Academy Cup Final. FC Durham opened the scoring moments before the end of the first half, then added to their lead early in the second half! Sigma FC kept the game close with a goal shortly after that to bring them within one, but FC Durham quickly responded put the game out of reach shortly after and came out with a 3-1 victory to claim the U17M Academy Cup! Congratulations to both academies on their respective trophies.

U20 Male: vs. 

Finally, we wrapped up ‘Day One’ of Championship Weekend with Spring Champions (Sigma FC – B1) taking on Fall Champions (ANB Futbol) in the U20M Academy Cup Final. An absolutely enthralling match that came down to the wire! Sigma FC went ahead early, but ANB responded with three consecutive goals. Sigma FC then cut into the lead shortly after, making it 3-2 with just over 20 minutes to play. ANB seemed to seal the victory after going up 4-2, but Sigma FC was not going down without a fight. They pulled one back in the dying minutes off of a corner kick, and now it’s 4-3! However, ANB stayed composed and were able to lock down the win and take home the U20M Academy Cup.

Congratulations to all SAAC Academy teams and we look forward to another successful season next year! Enjoy the break.SAAC
