Brian Ainscough, Director of Coaching and Technical Director for FC Bolts Celtic, formerly known as FC Greater Boston Bolts, announced today that the club is expanding into Central Massachusetts, with teams beginning league play in Fall 2012.
“We are extremely excited to be bringing the Bolts Way to Central Massachusetts! The new FC Central Mass Bolts will be part of FC Bolts Celtic. The club decided that there was a tremendous opportunity for us to offer 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 may choose to continue to play travel soccer with their town clubs. For players in Central Massachusetts, this provides them additional soccer training at the highest level.”
Ainscough added “we are very pleased to announce that the coaching staff in Central Massachusetts will be led by Dave Teggart & Marco Koolman, head men’s soccer coach at Holy Cross, and will include Chris Gbandi, assistant men’s soccer coach at Holy Cross and Andrew Greiner, formerly of FC Celtic. Additional coaches will be named shortly. These coaches have significant playing experience; have been coaching successfully for many years; and are committed to ensuring player development”. Ainscough concluded, "The biggest benefit of creating a premier option is to give the most talented soccer players in the Central Massachusetts region the opportunity to play at a higher level without traveling great distances. We are bringing the best coaches and the best training directly to them.”
