Friend of the Storm gets Pro Coaching Assignment

Matt Weston takes Head Coaching job at
VSI-Tampa Bay FC - USL Pro team in Tampa

Santa Clarita Storm would like to congratulate Matt Weston on his appointment to head up the new U.S.L Pro League team out of Tampa Florida. Matt is a good friend of Gerald Brunner - Owner & CEO of United Sports Int & Futbol Club Santa Clarita Storm. The two
met through Doug Peterson who owned New York FC -  a team that operated out of Garden City, NY and had an affiliation with N.Y.F.C to develop players for the pro level. Brunner & Weston struck a relationship that continued after Weston had left N.Y.F.C.  Brunner
learned through social media of the promotion of Weston to take the helm of the Tampa Pro team .

Matt Weston -VSI- Tampa F.C
Weston, a former professional player in the UK with Ipswich Town, moved to the U.S. in 2006 to pursue a player/coaching career and has quickly established himself as one of the brightest, young, up-and-coming coaches. Last season Weston led the Ocala Stampede to the PDL Southeast Division title in the club’s inaugural season, and impressed the VSI management with his team performances and entertaining style of play.
“Matt was an obvious choice for us as he best reflected the values we wish to achieve with our newly formed USL PRO team,” said John Mitchell, VSI Head of Operations for North America. “We saw him coach firsthand last season when our PDL team played against Ocala Stampede who, without a doubt, were the standout team in the division.”
“I am excited by the challenge and wonderful opportunity of being named head coach of the VSI Tampa Bay FC USL PRO team for its inaugural season in 2013,” said Weston, 36. “Once I met the ownership group and discussed the long-term vision of VSI, it felt right and I was delighted to accept the position.
“After spending some time in USL PRO in 2011 with FC New York and a very successful season with new PDL franchise the Ocala Stampede this past summer, I was champing at the bit to get back into the pro game. VSI are looking to build for the future, they are forward-thinking with their approach and mirror my philosophy for long-term player development. We will be looking to play a brand of soccer that will excite as well as entertain, and hope that the fans here in Tampa come out to support their new professional team."

Santa Clarita, California - Futbol Club Santa Clarita Storm announces the transfer signing of a Storm player to a professional contract to play with the Anaheim Blot of the P.A.S.L (Professional Arena Soccer League).
  Jayro Martinez, one of the Storms starting midfielders in F.C.S.C's very successful 2012 season, signed to play this season with the professional indoor team based out of Anaheim & will play in a season that runs in between the N.P.S.L. season.
Martinez is one of three players from the United Sports International Organization to sign professional contracts; Carlos Aguilar was the first player when the team played in the P.D.L. of the U.S.L under the Lancaster Rattlers brand. Aguilar signed with the Rochester Rhinos of the U.S.L Pro League. Miguel Ibarra who in 2012 was drafted in the M.L.S draft second round to the Portland Timbers. However, signed
with the Minnesota Stars of the N.A.S.L Pro Leagues, a second division of U.S. Soccer .

  Martinez started playing at the youth level with some of the most competitive club teams in his local
area of the San Fernando Valley, California. Club teams such as Samba, Strikers, and C.V.U, as well
as participating in top tournaments like the Surf Cup, the Dallas Cup, Nomads and the National Cup.
      Martinez went on to a successful college career; first with L.A Mission College,  where he won M.V.P honors as well as First Team All Conference and helped lead  his team to a Western Conference title in the W.S.C.  Martinez completed his final two years of his college career with both Kansas Wesleyan University (where he helped his team to a conference title) and with California State University of Los Angeles.

     From College Martinez continued his pursuit of a career in soccer as he spent time with the Southern California Seahorses and the Ventura County Fusion of the P.D.L. He spent some time in El Salvador playing with the U-21 National Team before once again returning to the P.D.L with the Lancaster Rattlers who have now rebranded and relocated to Santa Clarita and play in the National Premier Soccer League under the new brand of Futbol Club Santa Clarita Storm.  Martinez spent the 2012 season with the Storm and helped his team to a successful inaugural year in Santa Clarita.
     Jayor; with his good sense of the game both on and off the field and ability to execute quick and efficient play should be an excellent addition to the Bolt.
