    So, this is John Spencer's and Brett Goulet's doing?

    I'd like to learn more.

    Hope it works well for him. It's a very disfunctional club.

    Wow, Interesting. SCR Altach is the former Club of Nate Jacqua, they also have Armando Ochoa, although I have no clue if he's featured w/ SCR Altach 1st team.

    I don't think players will pay to become professional. Doesn't it normally go that a player is paid to become professional. I think it is great that American's are choosing Europe. The training environment is much better. I am curious about this "system." Normally though it is the clubs who are paying players to be professional not the other way around.

    "This past summer, Gatt received international recognition with his participation in the Discover Europe™ Tour"

    Josh has worked hard for this and truly deserves it. The SuperElite® system gave him the foundational opportunity



    I'm pretty sure that ain't a charity...kinda diminishes my opinion of TopDrawer Soccer as a news source

    Jaqua did and played pretty well. I was a little surprised they didn't extend his contract.

    Edit: He scored 5 goals in 13 games.

    Forget the charity or not...it is great to see an American Kid get an opportunity to play in Europe. I hope Josh has a great career in Europe. Good Luck kid!

    plenty of American kids are getting tryouts in Europe I don't like everybody being convinced they need to spend a couple grand a year to get a tryout opportunity...or a sniff of a scholarship

    Great step for him, I don't know how much he would learn in one year of college soccer if he planned to go pro anyway.

    From a YA.com article on Gatt:

    "The plans for me in the first season are that they want me to get there early in June and work on the kinks in my game," Gatt said of his plans for his first year. "But then they want me hopefully to be the starter on the first team by their first game in July."

    Apparently he also attracted interest from Mainz.
