ABERDEEN, WA—Grays Harbor Gulls FC are getting closer to kicking off their first season in the new Western Washington Premier League (WWPL.) In recent days they revealed their official crest and hosted open tryouts to harvest talent in the county.
Grays Harbor Crest
Ben Barene of the Gulls talked about how the crest came into being. “It was made by Studio Intramural, a start-up design company who was looking to do some design work to get off the ground, so we are kind of their guinea pig,” he says.
“We are also just starting out so I think we are good partners (for each other.) It is inspired by the harbor itself, when on a clear day you get beautiful sunsets and all the seagulls flying around. The two blues were inspired by the water and the sky and we really liked the balance between the two.”
The Gulls held open tryouts last weekend at beautiful Stewart Field. “Tryouts went really well,” Barene says. “We had a total of 35 over the two days. We selected a group of 25 players to our squad who will continue to battle for a spot on the match day 18. We will begin training on Saturday the 10th.” Want to match up against the Gulls? “We are looking for friendlies still in mid April,” Barene says. Contact the club at firstname.lastname@example.org.
