Ellertson hangs 'em up



The Columbian website is reporting that defender Tina Ellertson turned down Thorns FC contract offer and is directing her attention to coaching. Critical to her decision seems to be Coach Riley's intention to increase the workout tempo from that set by former head coach Parlow Cone.

"Riley intends to have the Thorns train more than once a day, a commitment that would have challenged Ellertson as a mother and as someone who hopes to someday coach college soccer. "I'm so committed to my Salmon Creek club and to my family," Ellertson said. "I didn't feel it would be fair to them for me to be away that much."

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
