This week’s Déjà Roo takes a look at the dramatic 2-1 win over long-time rivals Charleston Battery in the 2014 USL Playoffs Quarterfinals. After playing 90 minutes tied at 1-1, the two longest, continuously-running professional clubs in the country headed to extra time. With penalties looming, Matthew Delicâte came off the bench to net the game winner in the 118th minute.
During the match, Kickers Manager of Digital Content, Nathan Heintschel will be joined by Kickers legend Matthew Delicâte and current Kickers defender Conor Shanosky.
Making 249 appearances over 10 seasons in Richmond, Delicâte is the Kickers’ all-time leading scorer with 113 career goals and 28 career assists. Adding 21 assists in a Kickers' uniform, the four-time USL All-League First Time honoree and 2014 USL Most Valuable Player Finalist also owns the club record for career points (209) over 10 seasons in Richmond.
The longest tenured player on the current roster, Shanosky has made 111 appearances with Richmond, dating back to the 2013 season. Between the 2013 and 2014 seasons, the Pittsburgh native spent the time with the Kickers on loan from D.C. United before going on to sign with Louisville City FC for the 2015 and part of the 2016 season. Shanosky returned to Richmond halfway through the 2016, where he has remained.
