LUFC commits two danish players, Marc Skytte Olsen a Goalkeeper and midfielder Soren Jensen.
“Both Marc and Soren come to Lane United highly recommended by former Oregon State alum and Central Arkansas Head Coach Ross Duncan. Ross has done an amazing job recruiting some of the best European talent in the country and we are delighted to welcome these two standouts from Denmark. I think they will both add tremendous experience and talent to our roster this year. Marc has proved he is one of the best GK’s in his conference, while Soren is new to Central Arkansas, I think he will be one of the top performers for Coach Duncan this coming fall. ” – John Galas
