Cody Arnoux is staying abroad. Sort of.
   August 18, 2010 (9:09 AM) by Howie Michaels

Former Wake Forest forward Cody Arnoux had trouble in his one-year run with Everton, never making a first-time appearance and spending most of the latter part of the year going on various trials (often with fellow American Toffee Anton Peterlin). While Peterlin landed a spot with Plymouth Argyle of League One, Arnoux has signed with the Vancouver Whitecaps of USSF Division 2.

The Whitecaps, as you may know, are actually moving up to Major League Soccer next season. This is where things for Arnoux (along with U-20 forward Omar Salgado) get complicated:

He could play for his new club as soon as Thursday’s USSF D-2 tilt at Tampa Bay. Next season, when the Whitecaps jump from the second division to the top-tier Major League Soccer, it gets a little more complicated.

MLS courted Arnoux before he left for Everton in 2009, and league sources said Tuesday that he’d have to go into either January’s MLS SuperDraft or a weighted lottery to play in the league next season.

For Vancouver, Arnoux, like 16-year-old American forward Omar Salgado, could be a case of try-before-you-buy.

Salgado arrived here last week on a three-month loan from MLS, who had signed the U.S. youth international as a Generation adidas player — a partnership with U.S. Soccer that encourages top young talent to play in MLS.

so it seems likely that Arnoux will join MLS in some format next year.

Anton Peterlin and Cody Arnoux: another update
   July 14, 2010 (10:50 PM) by Howie Michaels

As we noted last week, ex-Everton reserves Anton Peterlin and Cody Arnoux have been on trial with Plymouth Argyle of League One (having previously trialed with Motherwell in March). has an update on their respective statuses. It sounds as though Peterlin is likely to sign with the Pilgrims. Arnoux, meanwhile, does not seem likely to sign and is considering options elsewhere, including the aforementioned Motherwell in the Scottish Premier League:

The 23-year-old has impressed manager Peter Reid on trial and his agent believes the chances of a deal are “about 90 percent.”

“Something is happening with Anton,” Barry McLean told “There’s a good chance he will sign with Plymouth. We are trying to work it out.”

Compatriot Cody Arnoux, however, was not in uniform at Torquay and his future appears to lie elsewhere. The striker has contact with clubs both inside and outside the United Kingdom, though McLean will only admit to the presence of longtime suitor Motherwell among the small crowd.

“Cody is weighing a few other options,” said the agent. “Motherwell has definitely expressed their interest and there is a possibility outside the UK.”

Anton Peterlin and Cody Arnoux: on trial with Plymouth Argyle
   July 2, 2010 (12:09 PM) by Howie Michaels

It appears that their respective runs with Everton are over, so they are looking to catch on with the League One side (coached by former New England assistant Paul Mariner):

“There are a couple of lads who were at Everton last year. Also, one lad from Europe.”

The two former Toffees are Anton Peterlin, a 23-year-old defensive midfielder, and Cody Arnoux, a 22-year-old striker.

Reid continued: “I’ve spoken to one or two [of the squad]. At the initial meeting we had yesterday, I told them that if anybody wants to come and see me, they can.

“No-one has been to see me up to now but I’m sure I’ll get a knock on the office door.

“If you know what agents are like, then you know they’ll be working on behalf of their players. That doesn’t bother me because that’s the way football is nowadays, and you’re not going to change that.

“If deals should be done, it’s good for all concerned but while they’re here, they’re Argyle players. We pay their wages, so they’ve got to do their jobs.”

Anton Peterlin and Cody Arnoux: on trial with Motherwell
   March 24, 2010 (8:36 PM) by Howie Michaels

You might remember hearing about these two players at various points in the past few years. Peterlin was an incredible story last March when he signed with Everton, having had a quiet career as a defensive midfielder in the Big West Conference.

Striker Arnoux was a two-time All-American (3rd team in 2007 and 2nd team in 2008) while helping Wake Forest to three consecutive College Cup appearances, including the title in 2007. He had 32 goals and 16 assists in 50 matches over his sophomore and junior seasons before signing with Everton last summer.

Sky is reporting that both are getting a trial following a solid performance in an exhibition against Celtic’s reserves.

Neither has made a senior appearance with Everton yet. Both were on one-year contracts, so it appears that David Moyes is allowing them to begin exploring their options for the future (since it seems unlikely at this point that they will be renewed). Motherwell are currently 4th in the Scottish Premier League and are in a Europa League qualifying spot, so it may be a great opportunity for them to land and make their way in Europe.
