ESL Recruitment | San Andreas Spirit | Seafax Strikers
The last two ESL teams with head Coach vacancies filled them today. The San Andreas Spirit named Patrick Brady to lead them, whilst the Seafax Strikers have promoted from within- Jon Lewis, who was the assistant Head Coach has taken on the role of Full Head Coach.
With these two positions in place, the ESL is fully stocked at the management positions- just the whole matter of the transfer window merry-go-round to go through before the season starts!
ESL Transfers | Scott Donahoe
The window has only just opened, but here are five ESL moves to have gone down on #FaststartFriday!
1. Aron Mulder CF (Juvenese to New Jorg United)
The young Anderland international was looking for somewhere to play regularly. Should be a great asset up front to replace the departing Michael Ameche. Stood out as a super-sub for Juvenese in the past two CONCAFA Champs League rounds, now gets to be a starter.
2. Blake Solo CM (Elverpool to Rochester United)
Solo slipped out of favour in Elverpool. With his confidence hit, he (and his agent) jumped at a chance to rebuild the ‘Solo13’ brand at newly-promoted Rochester. When on form, one of the top playmakers in the ESL.
3. Saúl Blanco LW (Independiente to Angel FC)
With Carlos Suárez’s move pending, Angel have not waited. Blanco is a talented left-winger, making great runs and tracks back well, too. The Aguadorian is a good pick. Will not directly replace Suárez in terms of goals and chances, so they will need to add more.
4. Dante Reed GK (Carlton to FC Coratia)
The goalie gives Coratia some ESL experience between the sticks, both sides will be hoping that he has less shots to save than when with Carlton last year. A good, young keeper with lots of potential.
5. Alváro CF (West Hampton Athletic to Olympians)
The task of replacing Nelinho and Hernandinho (both certain to move on) begins with a low-key move for Alváro of West Hampton Athletic. Good at NLS1 level and stood out in Copa Eboria ties, but untested at ESL level. An intriguing choice, who will be to follow?
ESL Players | Adelphia Arsenal | Diego Martinez
Diego Martinez has left Adelphia Arsenal on a free transfer today. The club have poured out the respect and love of a key player in the seven seasons he was there. Martinez won two league titles, two Copa Eborias and this past season- the CONCAFA Champions League. They have had #ThankYouDiego trending on social media.
The Honduran native is said to be speaking to Nova Porto and Giapoli in the next few days. At 33, the player said he wanted a change of scenery and a new challenge. The club respected his wishes and granted him the free transfer to go wherever he likes.
On behalf of the ESL, we wish Diego Martinez well and thanks for the memories, Diego!
