The Atlanta Ultras made a quick trip down to Tampa to watch their beloved Atlanta Silverbacks play the Rowdies on June 13, 2015. My camera was denied at the gate, and cell phone footage was not up to par, so here are some quick shots from the pre match. Contrary to popular belief, the Atlanta Ultras are very much alive and well for 2016. Be on the lookout for more info this week.
It was a special night at the MCU Center in Brooklyn, New York where the New York Cosmos hosted the Ottawa Fury on Saturday May 2, 2015. Non League America was on site to witness history, as the Cosmos B took the field for the very first time in the National Premier Soccer League. We also had the pleasure of interviewing Dr. David Kilpatrick, a New York Cosmos club historian.
A very special thanks to La Banda del Cosmos, The Borough Boys, and the Cross Island Crew. Thank you.
It was early April when Keasel Broome signed his first professional contract. The former Premier Development League (PDL) standout had previously been drafted by MLS San Jose Earthquakes, but due to a shoulder injury was released. Keasel instead made his way back to the East Coast, and signed his first professional contract with the New York Cosmos of the North American Soccer League (NASL). Keasel, a Delaware native, began playing soccer at the age of three years old. He states that he “began playing keeper because I was overweight and had asthma, it was the only position I could play. Soccer was always my first choice sport, but I did also play a little basketball, and I was also the kicker on the football team.” Keasel now attributes his time spent in the PDL to developing his game and he believes it prepared him for his first professional contract. Broome has played for three PDL teams throughout his college career; Reading AC, Ocean City Nor’Easters and Boston Rams. Read more →
