Following standout performances at PSC’s 2022 UK Residential program and 2023 LA pro tryout Chase Gozdieski has signed full time with Orange County SC Academy of the USL.
The sixteen-year-old midfielder spent the summer of 2022 in England training with PSC Residential Director Lee Holmes after being recommended to PSC by Glen Malone of MLS Next side City SC of the MLS Next. Having began his football education with City SC he then developed further during his time in England with PSC. He returned to USA and after showcasing in front of Orange County Head Coach Richard Chaplow at PSC’s California pro tryout has now joined up with the clubs academy full time.
Lee Holmes, who was instrumental in Chase’s development and signing, was delighted to see Chase get his well deserved opportunity: “Off the field Chase has done everything correctly since the start and shown the character and personality needed to progress into the professional game. On the field he has taken on board what we have tried to teach him and his game has developed to a point where this opportunity is well deserved. He is now the fourth player from the residential program to receive a professional offer and hopefully we can match, or even beat, that success in our 2023 Residential program.”
Chase commented: “The PSC Residential Program in England was by far the most beneficial component to my soccer development today. Every training session was physically and mentally demanding and required a high level of intensity. ”
All here at PSC wish Chase the very best at Orange County this season. PSC’s 2023 residential program will begin this summer looking for more players like Chase to help into the professional game. Interested in taking part? Attend one of our summer pro tryouts.
