FC Edmonton Press Release

Saskatoon Soccer Star Set for FCE Academy Debut

EDMONTON, AB (October 9, 2014) - For the first time in the FCE Academy history, the program has included its first player from the neighbouring province of Saskatchewan. From Saskatoon, Gabriel Milo caught the eye of the FC Edmonton staff who offered him a spot in the 2014/2015 FCE Academy program.

“Gabriel came here on trial last year and the staff immediately noticed his technical ability and soccer IQ,” said Jeff Paulus, FCE Academy technical director. “We are delighted that Gabriel accepted our invitation and encouraged that we are viewed as a development centre for all young players trying to achieve their dreams of professional soccer.”

Milo started with the ASTRA Soccer Academy, formerly known as the Samba Soccer Academy, in Saskatoon in 2011 where he came from the Eastside Soccer Association. The ASTRA Soccer Academy has proudly produced some of the province’s top soccer players including former U-20 Men’s midfielder Kerr McLeod and Kaylyn Kyle, currently a member of the Canadian Women’s National Team.

Approximately 40 players between the ages of 14 and 18 have been scouted throughout the 2014 season to participate in the FCE Academy. Together, FC Edmonton technical staff and Alberta Soccer Association technical staff are responsible for scouting players.

“Gabriel has always been an outstanding worker who is very focused on his goals,” said Percy Hoff the owner and director of coaching development at ASTRA Soccer Academy. “Although he is not yet a finished product, he is well prepared fundamentally, and at FC Edmonton, we are sure that he is in the right hands to complete the final stages of his soccer education.”

“Throughout my time with the National Training Centre, I have been fortunate to work with and learn from some fantastic coaches,” said Paulus. “One of them who I have the upmost respect for is Percy Hoff, so when he calls to recommend a player, I will always listen.”

Milo will have his first match with the FCE Academy program on Thursday, October 9 against the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) soccer team at the NAIT field (11762 106 St NW) at 4:30 p.m. MT.
