I have only heard of two at TopHat and three at UFA who are playing up with 05s on DA. There are so many quality players from 04-06.
More importantly my personal philosophy on soccer is that there is A TEAM for every player at every ability and that is part of why soccer is a beautiful thing. I love that anyone who wants to play can find a team. To me in theory the leagues just help “organize” the levels of play. No one likes to win every game without effort and no one like to lose every game with a pants kicking.
Personally I am glad SSA is being awarded an ECNL spot. With TH and CF ECNL just a few miles apart and AFU and GSA likewise in Gwinnett. It’s nice to see an “option” further north and west.
As an aside with all the new leagues and team movement sometimes “we” forget it’s all the same players and coaches ... the only thing that really changes is what uniform they wear and who they play against.
Hopefully next May all the changes “were worth it”
