Brian Ainscough, Executive Director of Coaching and Technical Director for the FC Greater Boston Bolts announced today that the club is expanding to New Hampshire, with teams beginning league play fall of 2012. “We are extremely excited to establish a full Bolts club in Londonderry New Hampshire. The new club will be known as FC Londonderry Bolts. After a very successful year partnering with Londonderry United, the Bolts organization decided that there was a tremendous opportunity for us to offer the talented and committed younger soccer players the opportunity to play with Bolts Coaches, using the Bolts Training System, locally, reducing the amount of travel time placed on younger players and their families. Players in the U10-U12 age groups will continue to have the opportunity to play Travel Soccer with their town clubs. This is an added opportunity for talented soccer players in New Hampshire to receive additional soccer training at the highest level.”
Ainscough added “we are very pleased to appoint Emma Okonkwo as Director of Coaching and Joel Ogbunamiri as Assistant Director for our new Londonderry Club. Both Emma and Joel have significant soccer experience; have been working successfully with players and staff in Londonderry for the last year; and are committed to ensuring player development”.
Tryouts for the new FC Londonderry Bolts teams will be conducted this June.
