Austin USL Side Sign Former England Youth National Teamer
While I --and probably many of you-- have been keeping an eye on the expansion doings in Seattle and Philadelphia this off-season, USL 1 new boys Austin Aztex have been quietly going about the business of getting their sh*t together. They have signed a pair of PDL players and today announced there 1st "major signing".
Enter former Watford & Stoke City striker Gifton Noel-Williams, signed on a two-year deal from Millwall. A journeyman in recent years (he's spent time in Spain's second division as well as with Burnley & Yeovil Town) but still on the right side of 30, it seems like a pretty good pickup for an expansion USL side. Sh*t, on paper he sounds better that most of the strikers at RBNY. And a random factoid about him; for a time he was Michael Owen's strike partner in England's U-18 squad.
Welcome to America blokey.
