“We felt this was the right move for us as a club on multiple levels,” owner Robin Waite said. “We’re looking forward to starting our first season in the NPSL, which will be a new adventure for us in many ways.”
Head coach and general manager Cameron MacDonald said the move is a positive step for the club, as it widely opens the pool of players for the club to consider signing.
“Every year as the leagues above us continue to expand, it gets tougher to find players who have graduated college but still slip through the cracks,” MacDonald said. “The club served a great purpose when the USL especially was a small league, but now, we want to be able to develop the next generation of pros as well. We think this actually gives us a better chance to put a quality team on the field, since we can now essentially sign any player we want without having to worry about their college eligibility status.”
