@ Atlanta Silverback Park
Atlanta- The Atlanta Silverbacks organization is a model of what the Pumas would like to follow in Palm Beach. The Silverbacks have a pro team at the USL Division 1 Level, W-League & PDL Franchises, and a youth system. As the Pumas continue to build their youth outreach, college prep and PDL programs they continue to seek and develop land for soccer complexes that will cater to their programs. The Pumas are making progress in these areas and will be making future announcements regarding soccer fields. It is the Pumas goal to have a W-League Franchise and Pro team to compliment our youth and PDL programs.
Atlanta Silverbacks New Stadium will not be open
for the Pumas match on Thursday
Atlanta is 1-1-2 with 5 points. The Silverbacks are led by forward Damone Priestly who has 4 goals. John Drammond (Scotland), a veteran midfielder has 2 assists in the early season. “Records mean nothing this early in the season. Atlanta has had a tough schedule, like us they have only lost one game.” said Pumas Coach Bobby Lennon. The Silverbacks have tied the Cocoa Expos, a team which the Pumas lost to 4-0.
