Sidekicks Premier Debuts in PASL Premier Men’s Summer League
Before the Dallas Sidekicks return to the Allen Event Center for another run at the Ron Newman Cup in November, the team is taking time this offseason to nurture and build its young talent. Head coach Tatu is bringing together several Dallas Sidekicks players and prospects this summer to compete in the PASL Premier Men’s Summer 2013 league as the Sidekicks Premier.
The Sidekicks Premier will play an eight-game schedule on weekends from June 2 to July 14.
“This is a great chance to get our younger players some more experience and to see how they can take on leadership roles,” Tatu said. “The team and these players are a constant work in progress, and this is another step for these guys to be competitive and develop their game.”
A number of players familiar to Dallas Sidekicks fans will make up the core of the squad, including star forward Jamie Lovegrove and midfielder RJ Luevano, as well as defensemen Cody Ellis and Sean Bellomy. Dejan “Milo” Milosevic will tend net for the team.
“It’s a great way to stay fit and focused during the summer,” Bellomy said. “We can continue building chemistry among ourselves and help some of the newer guys learn the game. Hopefully we can put together some quality wins and build confidence going into next season.”
Also joining the team are several prospects that were discovered throughout the season or at open tryout sessions in May. These players will get the chance to show their potential in front of Tatu and work to earn a spot on the 2013-14 Dallas Sidekicks roster.
All Sidekicks Premier home games will be played at Inwood Soccer Center (14801 Inwood Road, Addison, TX 75001), where there is an entrance fee of $5.
