CARL REYNOLDS, “Unique… fantastic for players in so many ways…”
Southern States SC, Director of Player Development, Carl Reynolds, explained the thinking behind the club's most recent developmental move. “This is unique. What an opportunity, just fantastic for players in so many ways. Here is a chance to push themselves into high-level youth competition with a sprinkling of experienced, older players allowed. This will be a made for purpose, a true reserve league along European lines with the step up into the adult, minor league team a real target for these players”.
Southern States SC expects a high-level fall league such as this would attract college coaches and help in the recruiting process. With the NPSL minor league season played through the late spring and summer, these players can also look forward to coming home for summer ball as well.
Carl Reynolds added, “The chance for youth players, college freshmen, and a few older players to come together like this continues to help bridge the gap between youth and adult play”.
WHAT IS THIS LEAGUE ABOUT? Our new Under-19 reserve league team will play in the National Premier Soccer League’s Gulf Coast Conference. The team will be allowed to include three overage players and directly connects with our new NPSL adult, minor league team.
