Philadelphia Lone Star FC Women held its first tryout ahead of its inaugural season in the Women's Premier Soccer League on Sunday, December 23rd at the Suburban Sports Training Center.
The tryout drew out over 30 players from the Philadelphia area as well as New Jersey and Delaware. Most of the players who participated in the tryout were NCAA Division I, II, III, and JUCO players as well as elite high school athletes and former college players.
Head coach Charlie Flowe, strength and conditioning coach Tony Bates along with evaluators Kris Anderson, Kathleen DeLitta, John DiCriscio, Sean A. Matteo, and Max New were on hand assessing all of the players during the two-hour tryout.
“First off, I want to thank all of the players, fans, families, and current Lone Star men’s players for coming out. I was very impressed with the level of play, intensity, and positive attitude of all of the players. This tryout was our first step to building a roster and we definitely saw talent that we will look to sign. I was pleased with how quickly the chemistry developed between several players. I’m excited to see what kind of team we’ll build over the coming months,” Flowe said.
