Boston City FC is to hold a second Open Tryout for prospective players at Daly Field in Brighton on Saturday, April 13, from 12pm to 3pm.
Head coach Michael Bustamante and the Lions’ technical staff will continue the search for players with the potential to compete with the first team in the National Premier Soccer League (NPSL) and the Boston City FC II development squad in the Bay State Soccer League (BSSL).
Players wishing to join the tryouts must register and complete payment at the Boston City FC website here: https://www.bostoncityfc.com/2019tryouts/. All tryouts participants must be aged 18 or older.
Boston City held tryouts on March 17 and identified several players with the potential to join the club’s first team squad.
The 2019 NPSL season is set to kick off on April 27, while the new BSSL league and cup campaign opens on March 30.
The tryouts have been moved to Brighton from the originally scheduled time of 9-11am and the club’s home venue in Revere, where the Boston City FC II development team will face BRFC Druids in Bay State Soccer League action.
Open tryouts have given opportunities to several first team regulars including 2016 top scorer Homero Morais, defender Marcelo Cunha who is the club’s appearances leader, and 2017 regional all-NPSL selection midfielder Michael Rincon. Last year, midfielder Chris Gilbert and forwards Danny Apajee and Reko Wesad Al-Saadi were among those who emerged from the tryouts and saw action in the BSSL and U.S. Open Cup qualifying.
Boston City FC plays at the highest level of the United States Adult Soccer Association (USASA) sanctioned league structure in the eight-team North Atlantic Conference of the NPSL Northeast Region and will call Harry Della Russo Stadium in Revere home for the upcoming season. The neighboring city of Medford, where the Lions have strong ties to the local youth soccer community, will also host two regular season matches, at Hormel Stadium.
