All signs point to a fierce competition for playing time this year between returning Ottawa Fury FC striker Tommy Heinemann and newcomer Andrew Wiedeman.
Both have Major League Soccer backgrounds and a nose for goals and will be looking to play significant roles with the club this year. But by the sounds of it, the battle between the two Americans will be a healthy and good-natured one with Wiedeman already full of compliments for Heinemann as the squad reported for fitness testing and medicals Monday.
