Know the Opponent: Texas United FC
Bryan/College Station, Texas – April 30, 2018 – Texas rivals Texas United will look to improve upon a 2017 season that saw the team finish mid table in the Mid-South division in 2017. FC Cleburne will play their 2018 home games at Airhogs Stadium.
For Texas United, they will be led by first year Head Coach Arez Ardalani. Aradlani spent last season as an assistant coach for FC Cleburne and has experience coaching at the PDL, College, and US Development Academy level. Ardalani has served as an assistant coach for the UTRGV soccer program, while also serving as a staff coach for the Houston Dynamo South Texas Academy. Ardalani was also responsible for the Houston Dutch Lions’ first ever PDL Invitational Tryout.
To be successful in 2018, Texas United will need to replace the star player from last year’s club, Miguel Velasquez. Velasquez leaves Texas United to join the Brazos Valley Cavalry FC and was the leading source of offense for Texas United last season. Last season, Velasquez led the team in goals with 5 and was second on the team in assists, behind Flavio Guzman, with 3. Texas United will hope to cut down on the 28 goals they conceded last season, which was in the middle of the pack last season.
