4. TRANSACTIONS: USL1 sensation headed to Norway
Cam Weaver, who went from being
the last player to make the USL1 Seattle Sounders' 2006 roster to
sharing the league scoring title with Brazilian great Romario, has been transferred to FK
Haugesund of the Norwegian First Division (second level).
"We will certainly miss Cam and his goal-scoring abilities, but this is
another great example of the Sounders being able to identify and
develop local talent," said Sounders coach Brian Schmetzer. "He deserved a
chance to play at a higher level, and Haugesund was first in line. I
think Cam has a great soccer future and we wish him well."
Weaver, the 2006 USL1 Rookie of the Year, finished the year tied for
the league lead in goals (18) and points (39) with Romario, who played
for Miami. He joined the Sounders after starring for Skagit Valley
College and Seattle University.
