Ex-Cosmos, Minutemen Keeper Dies

I never read the obituaries but I happened to glance at them this morning (long commute, short newspaper) and noticed one for a Bronislaw K. Sularz. Also known by the name Jerry Sularz, he was an NASL and ASL goalkeeper in the 1970's; from 1973-1974 he was the starting keeper for the New York Cosmos with a 1.22 GAA, and a backup named Shep Messing. Sularz was also named NASL Goalkeeper of the Year in 1973. He would also stand between the pipes for the Boston Minutemen, and Gornik Walbrzych of Poland.

Please pour a little out for one of North American soccer's old soldiers. R.I.P.
