Clarke retornó y partió a Europa - Diario La Estrella - Denise Isla Nice article that touches several loose ends. Clarke returned from his South American trip where he looked at a couple of players in Argentina and Brazil. Clarke has left for Ireland to spend Christmas with his family and then will go to Holland on a scouting/recruiting trip. Clarke said this year's off-season is easier because he doesn't have as many holes to fill on his roster. His focus is on defense and midfield, although if he does come across a nice forward he will pursue as well. Clarke's feelings on the Quakes move mirrors how most of us feel. He is happy to have an intrastate rival, but sad for the great fans of San Jose. Apparently there was a match played at PHP yesterday. FCD Sales vs. the rest of FCD personnel. FCD Sales lost 5-4. Hitch scored two goals for the winning squad.
