Our west coast tour of the United States with West Bromwich Albion was arguably the best training camp I have ever been on. The trip was great and Mark Taylor (PSC Managing Director) was very helpful.”
Roy Hodgson,Former England National Team manager and current Crystal Palace Manager (EPL)
“The best thing about it [the combine] was that each coach from each country looked at the game a bit differently so it felt like all of the different types of players in attendance could attract attention from professional coaches. It was easier to go to one location, do what I love, which is to play soccer and showcase to around 10 coaches from Europe and the USA.”
Gianluca Cuomo (Warner University) signed with San Antonio FC
“I’ve been coming to PSC’s combines for 3 years now, it gives players a chance to showcase what they can do as a player. It’s also important for the coaches, you can always find player no matter where they are because we are such a big country and thats why PSC combines are so special.”
Mike Anhaeuser, Charlseton Battery Head Coach (USL Pro)
“I want to thank PSC for providing me with an opportunity to further my professional career. The combine was a great experience and well organized, I was able to showcase my skills in front of a number of coaches. I am grateful to Tom and the PSC team and excited to challenge myself at the premier league level in Europe”
Dante Leverock (Bermudan National Team) signed with JK Narva Trans (Estonian Premier League)
What PSC are doing here in Orebro, Sweden is great. It’s a chance for American players to be seen by great coaches and scouts. As a coach its always fun to come out and see new players, even more to see players from a new country and different culture”
Axel Kjell, Orebro SK Coach (Swedish Allsvenskan)
“Your past accomplishments don’t really matter during the tryouts; I feel that if you play well over the three days, you’ll get a chance. There are so many coaches at the combines, and even if they don’t offer you an opportunity, the guys from PSC will work hard to help you organise a tryout, which is what happened in my case”
Steffen Kraus (George Mason University) signed with Karlslunds IF (Sweden)
I have had a great relationship with Tom Taylor PSC for 5 years now. At combines I get to work with players directly and learn their character which is important. I also trust PSC’s judgement of players even if I have not seen the play directly as they have a great reputation in the professional game
Christian Samuelsson, BK Boden Sporting Director (Sweden)
The Showcase tour was a great experience! I discovered that coaching staff of Danish Super League side HB Koge was watching. Talks between Mark Taylor (PSC CEO and Agent) and HB Koge progressed over the coming weeks and I ended up signing a two-year contract!
Shawn Nicklaw (UConn), signed with HB Koge (Denmark)
I’ve been working with PSC since they began in 2010 and these events are great for players and for coaches. I get to see a large number of players all at one time playing in a high level, professional environment that PSC create for the players.
Dave Irving, USL Hall of Famer, Tulsa Roughnecks (USL Pro)
The coaches and staff were exceptional in creating a comfortable, non-stressful environment where the players could be free to play. Since then, there’s been a lot of consistent communication and it has made this process easy to follow. I really appreciate everything that PSC and Simon Deeley (PSC Director) has done for me.
Tori Ornela (CSU Bakersfield) signed with Haukar FC (Women’s Icelandic Premier League)
“The players we have brought in from PSC have made a substantial contribution to our success and promotion. Simon (PSC Director) has been a great support in sending us players, helping us with contracts and other practical details.”
Ingemar Haglund, Vasteras BK30 (Women’s) Director (Sweden)
“I have been to other tryouts/combines and this one was by far the most professional, organized and had the best exposure for each player to show their talents for every coach in attendance. I would recommend it to any aspiring Pro player
Ryan Price (Florida International University) signed with Tulsa Roughnecks (USL Pro)
Gianluca (Cuomo) is a player we would never have found without the services of PSC. Tom and Simon (PSC Directors) do a great job of organizing the events and assisting the signing process following the combine.
Andy Thompson: San Antonio FC Assistant Head Coach (USL Pro)
Having done several combines and tours, I was unlucky not to find a club to sign for. However, PSC took personal time to make sure I was able to showcase my skills and earn a contract. They are a fantastic group of people who will help achieve your dream.”
Gus Villalobos (CSU Northridge) signed with Ange IF (Sweden), Qormi (Malta) and OC Blues (USL Pro)
“After working with Tom & Simon at PSC for a number of years, I know that they work as hard as they can to help individuals progress to the next level, so work as hard as you can when you’re at the events!”
Juha Malinen: Recent Finland U21 National Team Coach & former Kazakhstan National Team Coach, Current Finland Premier League Coach
“PSC helped me showcase my skills for five weeks in Europe, and earning a trial with a club in the Championship is something I never thought was possible for me. I feel ready, especially after training hard every day with PSC’s professional coaches for the last five weeks.
Stevie Manios (CSU Northridge) trialed with Brentford FC (England)
I’ve been to a few PSC combines now and I love it here. The facilities, the set up, the staff are all first rate and it is by far one of the most organized combines I have been to which allows me to focus on evaluating players. The quality of players at these tryouts has been much higher than I have seen at other tryouts and we’ll be seeing some of these guys in the pros for sure.
Rick Schantz: USL Championship Winning Coach with Phoenix Rising
PSC have been absolutely incredible. I couldn’t have asked for a better agency. They’re always concerned with how things are going. Constantly asking for updates, and asking if there is anything more that I’m needing. They’re also fast and efficient. I’m never sitting around wondering about anything. I would like to thank Simon (PSC Director), who checked up on me several times through my ACL recovery this last year and got me on a team as soon as I was ready.
Heidi Giles: Signed with FHL, Iceland
I was very impressed with the high quality. I knew I would find good players here but the quality was far higher than I had ever expected. It’s a great opportunity not just for the players but also for me as a coach I can see a lot of talent in one place and see them tested in a high quality environment.
Nicky Law: Former EPL and SPL player, current Tampa Bay Rowdies Head Coach (USL Championship)
I’ve been attending tryouts for the past 5 years now and signed 12 players for our men’s and women’s teams as a result. We get sent a lot of highlight videos but they are a risk and as a coach it is much more valuable for me to see the players live and work with them to get a feel for their character as well as their ability. This is why we sign players from PSC every year.
