Kickers Matthew Delicate returns to active roster Saturday

RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Thursday afternoon Kickers head coach Leigh Cowlishaw revealed the franchise’s all-time leading goal scorer, Matthew Delicate, will make his return to the active roster this Saturday against Orlando City B at City Stadium.

Delicate is coming back from a minor stint with kidney cancer that turned out to be a benign mass, getting removed during surgery on June 3rd.

“Deli” won’t start the game and isn’t guaranteed to come onto the pitch as a reserve, but Cowlishaw says if there is a need for a goal Delicate is the best option in his back pocket.
