Sockers sign five new players
The Sockers, San Diego’s professional indoor soccer team, announced the signing of five new team members for the 2009-10 season on April 9.

Paul Wright, Nate Hetherington, Braeden Cloutier, Miguel “Chicky” Luna and Tony Velezquez will be five of the 26 players on the Sockers’ roster for the upcoming season. Wright, Hetherington and Cloutier previously played for the San Diego Sockers between the 1980s and 2001-2002 season.

Players were chosen on the basis of their talent and soccer skills during an open tryout last month. The coaching staff also took into consideration players who had some experience or history with the San Diego Sockers to help in making their decisions.

“The San Diego Sockers name carries a winning tradition and now it is up to the players to keep the tradition alive. I just feel honored to be wearing the Sockers jersey,” Luna said.

Open tryouts to fill the remaining roster will be held late in September or early in October before the start of the Premier Arena Soccer League’s (PASL) season, which begins in November 2009. As members of PASL, the San Diego Sockers will host 12 home games at the newly renovated Del Mar Arena. Season tickets are available at
