The Seacoast United Phantoms are gearing up to kick off their PDL season against the Western Mass Pioneers this Saturday, May 13th 6pm at Seacoast United Sports Park. The team hosts a new coach, Alistair Bain, who comes with a wealth of experience and new promise for the coming season. Bain commented, “It was an honor when I was approached by Paul Willis to take over the team & my main goal is to produce a team that the entire club can be proud of.”
The Phantoms will be looking to regain the Northeast Division title they won in 2014, and Bain feels as if he has recruited a squad to do so. “We have some magnificent young men representing our club this summer & we have been working hard at practice this week ahead of our home opener on May 13th," added Bain. "There are a number of individuals who I am sure our spectators will instantly warm to, none more so than Terence Carter who has been with the program for 4 seasons & become a fans favorite on and off the field. We look forward to starting our season & having the opportunity to meet with our fans after the game.”
Seacoast United’s NPSL and WPSL seasons also commence this weekend.
