Keeping updated on player movement in lower leagues
   April 7, 2015 (12:02 AM) by Matt Benson

While most people are aware when the Freddy Adu’s of the world make a transfer, there have been a lot of moves made at the lower leagues involving Americans over the last couple months.  With the help with David (who helps me on a lot of the behind the scenes stuff), here are some of the moves we do know with a bunch of the Scandinavian leagues set to kickoff in the next couple weeks.

Paul Torres was at Landskrona in Sweden last season and now he is with Sandnes Ulf in Norway.

As for another player leaving Sweden, Andy Lorei scored a couple goals for Bodens BK last season, but he has returned to the US and has signed with the Tulsa Roughnecks.

Lorei isn’t the only player returning to the US.  Kevin Sawchak has signed with the Atlanta Silverbacks after bouncing around Finland since 2011, spending his last season with the always fun named KooTeePee.

Taylor University product Matt Poland has signed with Finnish side Sporting Kristina.  And it looks like ex-USL Pro winger Tyrone Hall is also on the team.

Going back to Sweden, Sandvikens IF have recently signed Chris Harris.  Looking at their roster, you will also see they have fellow Americans Adam Kelemet, Anthony Allison and Seth Rudolph.

Want another smaller team with a bunch of Americans?  I was already aware that US U-23 potential goalkeeper Tyler Miller was at SVN Zweibrücken in Germny, but they also have Americans Jimmy Lannon and Evin Nadaner.  I remember when Lannon was at FC Lustenau in Austira, but it looks like he also had a stop with German side 1.FCA Darmstadt in between.

Staying in Germany, Nigerian-American Abuchi Obinwa has been promoted from Hannover 96’s U-19 team to their U-23 team recently as he made a bench appearance in a Regionalliga game at the end of March.

Also in the Regionalliga, defensive midfield Jonathan Koshko signed with Wormatia Worms back in February.  It looks like he was also at 1.FCA Darmstadt with Jimmy Lannon at one point.

Want to cheer for a player in the Faroe Islands Premier League?  Mayowa Alli has you covered.  He was last seen at Vendsyssel FF in Denmark but he is now out on loan to KÍ Klaksvík.

For all you Armenian Premier League die-hards, you are well aware that Bryan de la Fuente is on Ararat Yerevan (duh?!).  He is now joined by Moises Orozco and Victor Garza.

For those of you that remember the run up to the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, Jay Denny was a midfielder who captained the US U-20 team a couple times but missed out on the tournament due to commitments at Stoke City (that is what wiki tells me).  Since then, he has bounced around various teams in the lower levels of England and he has recently signed with Conference National side Worcester City.  This will be his second stint with the Faithful after playing in two games with them in 2012-13.

This is a shout-out to OT reader Trent who loves himself some Irish soccer and now he was a new player to keep track of in forward Michael Lyons who signed with Irish First Division side Cabinteely.

And finally, for those of you running the J.C. Mack fan club, I don’t know exactly where he is, but he played in a game with Jaro in Finland in February and was last seen on trial with Dalkurd FF in Sweden in March.

With the Scandinavian leagues starting up over the next couple weeks, I am sure we will find out about more guys popping up on random teams.

Ararat Yerevan signs three Americans
   August 1, 2014 (4:10 PM) by Howie Michaels

You no doubt remember the excitement we all had over Tigran Tiraturyan signing with FC Pyunik, providing us a reason to become your go-to site for coverage of the Armenian Premier League. Now, we have three more reasons to track news from Transcaucasia, as Ararat Yerevan has signed three Americans to contracts for the upcoming season.

Bryan de la Fuente is probably the most notable of the three, having spent multiple spells with Chivas USA as well as a brief stint in Tijuana and some PDL gigs.

We’ve mentioned Jamel Wallace here once, when he was on trial in Sweden. He was a late draft pick by Seattle in 2010 and has spent time with a couple of USL Pro outfits in addition to his current stint in the PDL.

I’m having trouble finding stuff on Christian King beyond the fact that he’s 26 and a midfielder. is b

Ararat Yerevan is best-known for winning the 1973 Soviet double.

I should be in bed, but here are some links
   June 13, 2012 (2:05 AM) by Matt Benson

It is too late, but here are some links.

Nurnberg forward Jann George has been loaned out to Slovakian Super Liga club FK Senica for the upcoming 2012-13 season.  FK Senica finished fourth in last year’s Super Liga and will be in next season’s Europa League, entering in the first qualifying round.

Frank Simek has verbally agreed to sign a new contract with Carlisle United.

I haven’t been fully paying attention to the messy situation at Rangers, but it looks like the clubs is getting pushed towards liquidation.  The new possible owner Charles Green might just end up buying the team’s assets and form a new company (Rangers v2.0?).  If that were to happen then there is a whole mess about whether the club should be allowed to be in the Scottish Premier League or start all over in the a lower division.  Doesn’t look so hot for the “Lone Rangers” (a.k.a. Bedoya/Bocanegra/Edu).

Mike Grella apparently met up with Scunthrope United manager Alan Knill in New York recently to talk.  Grella turned down a deal with Bury last week.

Tijuana midfielder Bryan de la Fuente is in Sweden training with Hammarby this week.

Former USF left back Ben Sweat is also in Sweden, but training with Djurgården.

And finally, Robbie Findley and Nottingham Forest will be wearing these shirts in away games next season.
