All-time club leading scorer Rory Agu will return to Tacoma Tide FC for 2009

Tacoma Tide FC recently got good news as they look ahead to defending their PDL Northwest Division crown. Rory Agu, a Tacoma native who is the club's all-time leading scorer, plans to return and play for TFC for a fourth straight year.

Rory will miss tryouts and pre-season training because he is in school in Fresno, California. However, he's struck a deal to train with a Tide playoff rival, the Fresno Fuego, to get ready for the season. In fact, Agu has been with the Fuego for nearly a month.

Agu's timing is just right in terms of getting some exposure. The Fresno Fuego will play the Major League Soccer San Jose Earthquakes on Friday February 20th, and Rory is likely to see some playing time against them.

Recently Rory kept his scoring touch alive with ten goals for Fresno City CC.

Tacoma Tide FC open their 2009 season May 13th with a visit to Seattle to help the Wolves make their PDL debut at Starfire.
