Last weekend, Lane United held open tryouts for the 2016 season. Trialists from across the country attended the two-day tryouts with the hopes of earning a place on LUFC’s 2016 roster. Participants attended two sessions per-day on Saturday and Sunday, culminating in a scrimmage versus Corban University’s Men’s Soccer Team on Sunday afternoon.
When asked about the tryouts, Head Coach John Galas said, “I was generally pleased with the weekend. I thought the trialists where professional, they worked hard, and showcased well. Having them finish the trials with a match vs Corban University is always a nice way to evaluate them and I thought they competed well against one of the best teams in the region. We certainly appreciate Corban including us in their spring schedule, and think it adds great value to our tryouts.
Coach Galas and Assistant Coach Conner Cappelletti will evaluate each player’s performance to determine who will be a good fit for this year’s roster. A select number of trialists will be called back to participate in a pre-season game versus Oregon State so that both coaches can continue to evaluate their performance both individually, and with other members of the team. Check back here for further roster updates and player news as the season gets closer.
On Sunday, Lane United FC held their 2016 Kit Launch Party at Oakshire Public House. The event provided fans with a chance to get a first-look at the new home and away jersey designs for the 2016 season as well as sneak a peak of new Club Shop merchandise. The party kicked off at 1:00pm and featured a fashion show of the new jerseys and merchandise that included LUFC fans and former players as models.
The new jerseys featured some changes from last year. The red home jerseys incorporate more of LUFC’s signature red than in previous years. They also included a collared neckline, custom LUFC numbers, and the new Oakshire logo. The away jerseys are white with blue and green accents and were inspired by Cascadia’s strong soccer culture. The Pacific Northwest soccer community has been incredibly welcoming to the club over the past three years so we wanted to demonstrate our support and love for the Cascadia community through these jerseys. The kit features the Cascadia flag on the back of the neckline and custom LUFC numbers. Fans were able to pre-order jerseys at the event and the new kits will be available through the LUFC Club Shop in the coming weeks. Both jerseys will be available in men’s, women’s, and youth sizes.
Stay tuned to our website, Facebook, and Twitter pages for more event and club announcements over the coming weeks!
