PSC Agency Staff (Worldwide Recruitment)


Since 2002 PSC has forged a respectable reputation in the professional game working with players, coaches, and teams from Europe’s top leagues such as the Barclays Premier League through to American leagues such as the MLS, NASL, and USL Pro. This long-standing reputation for working in the professional game has led to a number of trials and signings of combined participants with clubs around the world who trust the opinions of the PSC Agency staff.

Professional clubs trust our recommendations, and after an event, our Agency Staff will look to recommend any player who has proven they are capable of playing professionally to clubs around the world. The following list is a sample of players who attended a PSC combine or tour and received no interest from attending coaches but trialed or signed with a non-attending club based on PSC’s Agency Staff recommendations. This recommendation can come within days, weeks, or months of the original event:

  • – Brett Croft (2015 San Diego combine) SIGNED with Swedish 3rd Division side Melleruds IF in 2015
  • – Jason Sangha (2015 Ft Lauderdale combine) SIGNED with Swedish 2nd Division Side Gallivare Malmbergets FF in 2015
