Ricketts recently signed a professional contract in Romania

Green Bay, Wis. (GreenBayPhoenix.com) - Green Bay men's soccer alum Tosaint Ricketts (Edmonton, Alberta) has signed a three and a half year professional contract with Politehnica Timisoara in Romania.

"Tos has worked hard to continue to improve his game at Mypa in the Finnish League and has done really well," said Green Bay head coach Tom Poitras. "This is a great opportunity for him to continue to better himself as a young professional player and as a person."

Ricketts played for the Phoenix from 2005-08 while leading his team in goals (8) and points (18) his senior season. Green Bay was 40-28-11 while Ricketts was a member of the team. Ricketts was a two-time First Team All-League selection after being a Second Team selection his sophomore year.

Ricketts joined Veikkausliiga club MyPa in 2009 and was formerly on trial with Hammarby IF. He made his debut on March 4, 2009 and scored his first goal against Kuopion Palloseura on June 13. He scored two goals in Europa League against Politehnica Timişoara, who Ricketts will play for the next three and a half years.

"I'm glad I signed with Poli, to me is a step forward in my career. I can't wait to play at my new team and I can't wait to reunite "Poli" fans, which impressed me when I played here in Europa League with MyPa-47," said Ricketts at his press conference.
