Tulsa roughnecks are led by USL Hall of Famer David Irving who knows PSC combines well, having signed over 20 players from PSC events over the last 3 years. The Roughnecks roster currently boasts players such as Oscar Jimenez, Ryan Price, and Eli Galbraith-Knapp all of whom were signed from PSC’s 2014-15 winter combines
Wilmington Hammerheads will be attending our 2015 winter combine after signing numerous players in the last 2 years from PSC events. Players such as Mickael Barroso, Albert Edwards, Troy Hernandez, Arron Patrick, and Shaun Utterson were all signed to the Hammerheads from PSC events as well as many more. Current MLS and PSC Agency Player Luke Mulholland began his career with the USL Side before moving on to the NASL and MLS.
Karlslunds IF will be attending PSC combines for the first time having been heavily involved with PSC’s showcases over the past 2 years where they have provided fierce opposition for our Elite tours. Following games against our 2014 Residential Academy the club signed midfielders Adam Brundle and Tyrelle McLeod-Bentley for the 2014 season. They will be in Walsall looking for players ahead of their 2016 season
Julian Lundberg has been working closely with PSC for the last 18 months helping place players throughout the leagues in Sweden in both the Men’s and Women’s games. So far in 2015, he has been responsible for the signings of 15 players in the men’s and women’s games including Brett Croft and Gary Cennerazzo to Melleruds IF, and Cameron Selamie and Zak Epplette to IFK Amal amongst others. He will be looking for further talent from this winter's combines to market to his contacts in Scandinavia.
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:
Players who perform well but are not selected to sign by professional coaches will be invited on a PSC Professional Showcase Tour. On our tours, players have the chance to compete, and prove themselves, against professional opposition and earn a contract, or an Agency recommendation. The following players all proved on showcase tours that they were capable of playing with, and against, professional teams and were rewarded subsequently:
