Dax McCarty joins Stars!

Second City Soccer Club is pleased to announce the official signing of midfielder Dax McCarty as the team's first ever player.  McCarty was acquired from Gold Coast FC in exchange for a fourth round draft pick.

"Though we're aware the news got out some time ago, we wanted to wait until all the paperwork was final before we made the official announcement," explained Stars GM Clayton Weimers. "We're very excited to bring a player of Dax's caliber to the side and we strongly believe he will have a big year for us."  Weimers was known to be in attendance as McCarty captained the USA side which tied with Chile in January.  Could this have been a motivating factor behind the signing?  "I was definitely glad to see Dax get the armband in that game, but the truth is, he's been on the radar for some time."

When asked if there would be any more pre-drafts trades, Weimers commented that he saw it as unlikely, but he would not rule out the possibility should an enticing offer come in.
