We caught up with the U14 Boys GPS Forida West team after a successful postseason
The U14 Boys GPS West team finished third at nationals after defeating Valeo FC, 3-1 in their final game of the season. After a historic postseason run, we caught up with head coach Danny Fahey to get some more insight on what this experience was like for the team.
What has this post season opportunity meant to your club and team?
“The ENPL post season has not only allowed the team to pit themselves against higher level competition thus giving them a better idea of where they stand amongst it, but to bring a GPS Florida West team out to Massachusetts and then Colorado highlights the hard work being put in as well as the quality that we can bring from our small corner of Florida.”
The playoffs put your club and team at the same event as the ECNL qualifiers. What was your experience with the combined League playoffs?
“I think this is an excellent idea, the ECNL Clubs always bring great organization and quality. The NPL qualified Clubs are guaranteed to be strong so the match ups are always competitive!”
What do you find that playing in the ENPL also gives your club and teams in addition to the post season events?
“Allowing teams a pathway to Regionals and Nationals via their NPL League play puts extra emphasis on the NPL League games and season as a whole. Rather than just receiving a shiny medal for placing in the league, teams can earn the liberty to compete in a postseason pathway that guarantees excellent opposition and very professionally ran competitions/events.”
