Orlando Pro Tryout Attendee Signs in Europe

By PSC Soccer, 04/04/24, 2:45AM PDT


PSC are proud to announce another success story from our Winter Tryouts as Florida Pro Tryout attendee Julia Carr has signed with TB/FCS/Royn in Faroe Islands.

The central midfielder performed well over three sessions but did not receive any offers from the attending clubs in attendance from Iceland and the German Bundesliga. PSC Women’s Director Simon Deeley recognized she had the ability to play professionally in Europe and when the Faroese club reached out in search of a player coach for the 2024 season he was quick to recommend her. Such is the strength of reputation PSC have in Europe the club agreed to sign her without trial and she joins up with the squad this week.

Deeley commented: “Julia had a really good tryout and unfortunately but understandably did not fit the profile that the attending clubs were looking for. We felt she could play at the professional level and were comfortable recommending her to our contacts. This is the value of trying out in front of a FIFA Licensed Agency with a wide network as she is the now the fourth player from this winters tryouts we have placed at a club that did not physically attend the tryout!”

He continued: “I’m really happy for Julia, her performances were worthy of an opportunity to sign pro and she has shown the right attitude throughout the whole process. Some players turn their noses up at professional opportunities if they are not top tier but more and more in todays games top tier clubs will not take a chance on a player without some professional experience in Europe. Sometimes you have to go and prove yourself in Europe in order to progress to higher levels.”

We caught up with Julia before she flew out to join up with her new squad….


What is it about playing in Europe that you are most looking forward to?
I am looking forward to embracing a different culture, creating meaningful connections, and gaining experience playing overseas!

The combine was well organized and ran smoothly all around. There were high quality training sessions , excellent communication and perfect delivery. I was very pleased with the experience.


How has your experience at the PSC tryout in terms of the quality of players and coaching?
The PSC tryouts provided a competitive environment and a prestige line up for its coaching staff. The feedback from coaching staff was excellent and honest. It has helped guide me in the direction to be able to achieve my goals.

Simon was very professional, trust worthy and committed to deliver the best deal possible! I can’t be happier with my dealings with Simon.


Is there anyone you want to thank / acknowledge / give a shout out to?
I would like to give thanks to my family, friends, teammates, and coaches for the overall support. I would like to give my players whom I coach a shout out for inspiring me to never giving up on my dreams. Most importantly, I would like to give credit to my personal soccer trainer, John Kostelis, who has taught me everything that I know about the game!
