Boston Victory Soccer Club announced this morning via press release that they have signed former New England Revolution midfielder Andrew Sousa. Sousa will be joining the new USL Premier Development League (PDL) side for their upcoming inaugural season.
"Andrew is a very talented player who will bring experience and some extra quality to our midfield," said Boston Victory head coach Sergio Taborda. "It is important to us that we have signed a local player who grew up and learned to play soccer in Massachusetts. I am sure he will quickly become a favorite among our fans this season."
Sousa, a Providence College product and Fall River, Mass. native, was selected by the Revs in the 2011 supplemental draft and played primarily in the MLS Reserve League. He also made an appearance in New England’s US Open Cup match against Sporting Kansas City. He was waived by the Revs at the end of their 2011 campaign along with fellow reserve league teammates Alan Koger and Otto Loewy, who also never broke into the first team under Steve Nicol.
Boston Victory will kick off their inaugural 2012 season in May, with their first 2 matches to be played against other PDL newcomers CFC Azul (away, May 5th) and Worcester Hydra FC (home, May 12th). All three clubs will compete in the northeast division of the PDL eastern conference which includes teams from throughout New England as well as Ottawa, Canada.
