Phantoms Announce 2015 Roster 13 Players to Return
April 15th, 2015
Building on the back of a successful 2014, the Seacoast United Phantoms look ahead to the 2015 season in the Premier Development League. Thirteen players
are set to return from the 2014 Northeast Division champion squad (11-1-2) who advanced to the PDL Eastern Conference semifinal.
The Phantoms open the season at home on Sunday, May 10th when they play host to Real Boston Rams at 7pm. A difficult early-season schedule presents 8 of
their first 11 games on the road, including the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup 1st round matchup with Global Premier Soccer MA (USASA) on May 13th. All 5 games
scheduled for July are at home, with the regular season wrapping up on July 12th vs. Western Mass Pioneers.
PDL MVP finalist Anthony Grant looks to continue his assault on division opponents after finishing 2nd in the country in scoring last season with 14 goals and 29
points. Grant was also named to the All-Eastern Conference and All-League teams for his outstanding performance.
The front line for the Phantoms will include returning striker Terence Carter who complimented Grant nicely on the Phantoms attack last season. The two will be
joined by Frantdzy Pierrot (Northeastern University/Medford MA), the CAA Rookie of the Year who was also named to the College Soccer News All-Freshman team.
In the midfield, Abel Perez, Alex Ryan, Andre Simmond, Ben Havey, and Malcolm McLean all played vital roles during the Phantoms run for the division last season
and will don the Seacoast United uniform once again this summer.
Both Pierrot and Simmond are products of the Seacoast United U.S. Development Academy program.
Three of the 5 defenders from 2014 are listed on the current roster: AJ Dubois, Andrew Chaput, and Drou Goff. Captain Ben Brewster was offered a professional
contract with Tulsa Roughnecks FC (USL-PRO) in February, while Pablo Agudo is currently training in Ireland as he begins a career in law enforcement.
Supporting the back line, goalkeeper Dominic DiMaggio returns between the pipes to solidify a defense that conceded the fewest goals in the league. DiMaggio
posted a 0.384 goals against average, best in the entire PDL for 2014. Paired with DiMaggio is Dominic Colman entering his 2nd season in the PDL.
New faces include midfielders Barry McCabe, Sofiane Tergou (Southern NH), and Matias Candia, Spanish Internationals Nerry Andrade, Papeleo Vicent, Sergio
Pons, and Alejandro Ramirez, and defender Cam Omsberg (GPS Phoenix).
Head Coach Iain Scott enters his 5th season with the Seacoast United Phantoms in the Premier Development League. Scott has led the Phantoms to two division
titles in the last four seasons. The PDL recognized the franchise in December, with Seacoast United receiving the 2014 Progress Award after the operational
changes proved extremely successful for the New Hampshire based club.
“Nobody experienced in soccer makes bold predictions,” offered Scott when asked about his squad’s expectations for the upcoming campaign. “What I will say
is that we will be competitive on the park and the players will have a good experience while at Seacoast United.”
