PSC's Select Team return home after a successful Turkey tour

PSC’s Select team of American professional & college players have returned home
from their 12 day showcase tour in Belek, Turkey.

PSC’s elite team consisting of professional & college players from the USA arrived at their 5 star sport resort hotel in Belek ,Turkey on the 26th January 2012 and played a total of six Exhibition games against professional teams from various countries.

The PSC team was led by professional coaches Paul Taylor (Walsall FC) and Guy Newman (former MLS coach with Kansas City Wizards) and recorded 5 win and 1 defeat during the tour.

“I think overall the 12 days went very excellently. The players seemed to get more confident game by game and it showed in their performances. We had a good performance and an unlucky defeat in our first game after only a day of training together, then after this we won all five games against some excellent professional teams. Coming up against quality sides definitely was a great experience for the boys,” said Paul Taylor.

PSC’s licensed player agent Mark Taylor added, “the quality the players showed during the tour did not go unnoticed and we are currently speaking to clubs from Norway, Denmark and China who have a serious interest in many of the players in our squad. In fact we expect to announce a deal for one of the players to Danish Super Ligaen team HB Koge in the coming days”.

The 2012 squad roster included:
Troy Hernandez
Dan Williams
Shawn Nicklaw
Brennan Tennelle
Kevin Butler
Yahaya Musa
Troy Cole
Ryan O’Neil
Michael Mesle
Michael Reed
Garry Lewis
Mike Palacio
Chuck Chijindu
Chris Akwaja
