Following the previous season's exciting announcement that former Club USL League Two captain Conor McGlynn signed with Hartford Athletic, FA Euro New York is pleased to announce that ongoing collaborations will continue with the USL Championship side. The Club's 2006 (U14) age group will participate in an away exhibition friendly match against Hartford Athletic's newly formed U14 team on Friday, 7:30 PM, October 30th at Dillon Stadium. A return leg where the Club will host Hartford Athletic will be scheduled for sometime in November.
"The objective is to collaborate closely alongside USL Championship and League One sides to create further outlets of opportunity for our aspiring youth academy," comments FA Euro New York Executive Director, Marco Balsamo. "Hartford Athletic have been incredible since day one and we are happy to be working hand-in-hand with them by offering players more opportunities on the USL's proven Path2Pro model. The club's philosophy has always remained the same, we strive to be a top level feeder system for the professional level and are focused on creating many more avenues in helping players realize their professional dreams."
