In our first wave of signings we’re proud to announce the promotion of four Revs Reserves to the Senior team for the 2018 NPSL Season!
“All of these players have been crucial to the Revs Reserves successful ADASL campaign and I’m certain they will have an impact in the NPSL. This season we’ve promoted four players to a very strong NPSL roster with a few more we are looking at who may be promoted soon. The purpose of the Reserves is to identify and develop players with the potential of joining our NPSL team. By adding the U23 Team this ADASL season, we have over 40 adult players training and playing year-round with the Club. Coupling this growth and consistent professional training, I’m sure we will continue to promote more players in future.” -Eric Morrison, General Manager.
