PSC is delighted to announce that 2017 Pro Soccer Combine participant Dante Leverock has signed with Estonian top-tier side JK Narva Trans.
The 25-year-old defender penned a one-year deal with the club earlier today, following a successful trial period, and becomes the latest player to benefit from PSC’s Baltic network.
Bermuda international, Leverock, impressed a number of professional coaches and scouts during PSC’s Fort Lauderdale combine last month, and PSC’s network of Baltic scouts, including former Narva Trans striker Aleksandrs Čekulajevs, quickly recommended the defender to the club.
And PSC Director Tom Taylor, who has monitored and assessed Leverock’s progress in recent years, was full of praise for the former USL player’s professionalism.
“I’m really pleased to see Dante sign this contract in Estonia,” said Taylor.
“From attending the combine to earning trials to earning a contract – he’s demonstrated great professionalism and displayed a fantastic attitude throughout the whole process. He’s gone over there [to Estonia], got his head down, done the business on the field, and been rewarded with a professional contract in Europe.
“It’s really rewarding when you see a player with professional experience in the USL make it happen for themselves. Many players in Dante’s position would have waited for an opportunity to arise, but he had the motivation and confidence to attend our combine and prove himself again.”
Taylor won’t have long to wait to see Leverock in action for Narva Trans, with the Estonian outfit among a number of European sides set to face a team of select players during PSC’s Showcase Tour of the Baltic region in February. Having sampled a taste of the high-quality players PSC can attract, the Narva Trans coaching staff will be on high alert during the contest – as they look for additional players to add to their squad ahead of the upcoming 2018/19 season.
Meanwhile, for Showcase Tour attendees, the game will provide an opportunity to follow in the footsteps of Leverock and make an immediate impression upon the club’s coaching staff.
