    Could be C.J. Crooks from this roster from 2005:

    GOALKEEPERS (3): Jon Harris (Arlington Heights, Ill.), Josh Lambo (Crystal Lake, Ill.), Chris Miller (Garland, Texas); DEFENDERS (9): Mykell Bates (Rosevill, Calif.), Brice Carr (Mequon, Wis.), Mizuki Hamada (Cupertino, Calif.), Christian Ibeagha (Edmond, Okla.), Ian Kalis (Plano, Texas), Brandon Lee (Tenafly, N.J.), John Raley (St. Inigoes, Md.), Matthey Uy (New Hyde Park, N.Y.), Daniel Wenzel (Federal Way, Wash.); MIDFIELDERS (8): Jared Jeffrey (Dallas, Texas), David MacVane (Middle Grove, N.Y.), Norberto Ochoa (Riverside, Calif.), Yannick Salmon (Westbury, N.Y.), Brandon Tarr (Knoxville, Tenn.), Kirk Urso (Lombard, Ill.), Abraham Villon (Garden Grove, Calif.), Brandon Zimmerman (Pasco, Wash.); FORWARDS (7): Gary Andrade (West Palm Beach, Fla.), Danny Barerra (Thousand Oaks, Calif.), Walter Hines (Brooklyn, N.Y.), Vincenzo Bernardo (Madison, N.J.), C.J. Crooks (West Orange, N.J.), Ellis McLaughlin (Seattle, Wash.), Sam Redmond (Arden, N.C.).​

    Lots of interesting names there. Though, as we know, citizenship isn't required for U15 involvement because the group has no FIFA competitions. And it's still possible he was born overseas, and further possible that he was both born overseas AND a citizen nonetheless.

    It probably is CJ as I've seen his name as CJ Brooks other places and the FAU bio lists West Orange, NJ as his hometown.

    http://www.shp.org/ftpimages/398/misc/misc_77530.pdf A picture of him at the bottom of a high school soccer camp. Made the all state team for the same high school his Senior year.

    He was born in the UK but I guess its possible he could have citizenship....I guess its on standby tell we find out more.

    He may have moved recently to Nantwich Town. They seem to be in the seventh or eighth division.

    Did not play in their game on 4/23, however:

    Salford City is in the bottom half of the table in the vaunted Evo-Stik North League Division One North (8th tier), in the same league as Radcliffe Borough:

    He's apparently scheduled to attend an upcoming SoccerVisa combine, so presumably he is without a club at present.
