Academy's goal: Seek out soccer talent by Judy Peterson
(Los Gatos Weekly Times)
English club Sunderland was in the town of Los Gatos, Calif., seeking out players from the local Pacific Soccer Academy. Bryce Clark, a local seventh-grader, will be heading to England next month for training at Sunderland's youth academy. Bryce has been forewarned about the differences that await him. "Even the weather plays a role in the boys' development," Sunderland coach Les Shaw claims. "They play faster in England because it's so cold."
