Republic FC's Thomas Enevoldsen Named to USL Championship Team of the Week
SACRAMENTO, Calif. - Sacramento Republic FC forward Thomas Enevoldsen has been named to the USL Championship Team of the Week, the league announced today. Enevoldsen, who made his Republic FC debut on Saturday night after signing with the club last week, scored twice in the 4-0 win against Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC over the weekend.
Sacramento goalkeeper Bobby Shuttleworth, who also made his club debut on Saturday, was named to the Team of the Week Bench for his role in maintaining the clean sheet against Switchbacks FC.
Enevoldsen joins Republic FC midyear from Indy Eleven after finishing the 2018 season as the league's Golden Boot Runner-Up with 20 goals and 10 assists for Orange County SC.
