Philadelphians Abroad: Valentin helps Bodø/Glimt to promotion, Warshaw on a roll

With five games left in the season, Lancaster, Pa.’s  Zarek Valentin has helped his club to promotion this week. On loan from the Montreal Impact, Valentin has been a defensive stalwart for the Norwegian Adeccoligaen (First Division) leaders FK Bodø/Glimt, who clinched their return to the Tippeligaen (Elite League) with a 1-0 win over SK Vard Haugesund. Valentin has made 22 league starts with the side since going on loan at the beginning of the year, contributing to 12 shutouts (including Monday’s) for a team that has conceded only 19 goals all season. For his efforts, Valentin was also voted Man of the Match in Monday’s league winner.

Meanwhile, another area native on loan has also been thriving in Scandanavia. Mechanicsburg’s Bobby Warshaw, who has been getting a lot of press in this column lately, has managed to notch another goal for Swedish side Ängelholms FF. Warshaw’s presence has had an instant impact on the team. Playing in an attacking capacity for the team (rather than the defensive roles he has grown accustomed to stateside), the goal marks his third in five leagues game and the second late game equalizer in two weeks.
