ODDS AND ENDS FOR FRIDAY

The team completes a week of training today and has the weekend off before returning to action next Wednesday on the road at Real Salt Lake.  Training with the team this week are Caleb Patterson-Sewell and Jack Traynor, who both competed in the USL First Division for the 2009 season for the Carolina Railhawks and Miami FC, respectively.

Both players were significant contributors to their sides, as Jack appeared in 20 matches for Miami (8-17-5, 29 pts., 9th place), earning two assists.  Caleb put up impressive numbers with Carolina (16-7-7, 55 pts., 2nd place), ranking in the top-10 in every GK category.  He posted a 7-3-5 record over 1350 minutes, with a 0.533 GAA, 10 shutouts, and 66 saves.

In other news, if you are looking for something to watch on Saturday morning other than cartoons, head over to FSC at 11:30 AM to catch the first leg of the New Zealand-Bahrain series, as Andy Boyens and the All-Whites look to take the first step towards South Africa in the aggregate series with Bahrain.  The home leg will take place November 14 in Wellington.

After that match is over, why not head to MSG to watch USA-Honduras at the Play By Play Sports Bar!  CLICK HERE to get more information and to gain access to a discounted admission rate!

    Both players seem like good players to have in camp. Paterson-sewell’s GAA of .533 is almost half of danny cepero’s GAA average of 1.00 when he played for the harrisburg city islanders, even though paterson-sewell is playing in a higher league than cepero did. those are really impressive numbers for any goalie in any league, so maybe he has more to offer than the team origanally thought when they cut him loose the first time. Sewell is also an inch taller than cepero (6 foot 3) and two years younger than him (22). 10 shutouts in 15 games is another interesting statistic. This kid sounds like he has game.

    I heard he was a talented keeper, did we loan him out or fully release him? (I thought we released him ages ago that’s why). Looking forward to the NZ match as well, come on Boyens!

    • lou Says:

      Yeah i think we released him to alle, it would be great if we just loaned him out but i don’t think that is the case. Either way those are phenominal numbers that he put up especially when you consider that he is only 22 years old.

    good luck Boyens! and it’s nice to see old guys come back and train with the Red Bulls, nice to know there is no bad blood.
