TSS FC is proud to announce a new professional male soccer team to their family. TSS FC Rovers, who will begin play in the Premier Development League [PDL] for the upcoming 2017 season, is coming to town.
TSS FC Rovers will begin play in the Northwest Division against teams such as the Seattle Sounders U23, Lane United of Oregon, last year’s finalist Calgary Foothills, and the well established Victoria Highlanders from Vancouver Island.
“TSS has been developing local players for over 17 years” says Colin Elmes, co-owner of TSS Academy and Head coach of TSS FC Rovers. “We have always been about trying to provide opportunities for our country’s young players. TSS FC Rovers provides a landing place for aspiring players that may still develop into top professionals and national team players one day. It is a labour of love but one we feel is necessary to provide players a leg up on their way up the football pyramid.”
TSS FC Rovers will be coached by Colin Elmes and Willie Cromack, who will also be the General Manager. They will begin play in early May at the iconic soccer stadium in Burnaby, Swangard Stadium.
“We look forward to providing a great environment for upcoming Canadian players, coaches, and fans to express themselves” Willie Cromack explains. “Over time hopefully we can all show what our country is capable of. It should be a lot of fun.”
