Dear Spirit of Liverpool USA Players and Families,

First off, I would like to thank each and every one of you for your patience and understanding during these unprecedented times. We appreciate your commitment to the club and your support through this spring season. 

It's become apparent that we will not be able to complete this spring season. Therefore, we have put together several options for you to choose from as we complete the 2019/20 season. An email was sent out to access those options.

We would like to share with you some changes and our plans for Spirit of Liverpool USA 2020/21 season. We are proud to announce that Spirit of Liverpool USA have been accepted into the DPL (Development Player League) along with 10 other New England Premiership clubs. We will also continue to compete in the NEP (New England Premiership) and NPL as before.

We continue our international partnership with Celtic FC ,Scotland’s Premier league champions 9 times in a row. Although we had to unfortunately cancel this year's Celtic FC EPP (Elite Player Program) due to the pandemic, we are still hopeful we will be able to continue with the Celtic FC Pre-Season Camp in August.

We have a NEW partner: wegotsoccer. Working with PUMA, our long time uniform partner, wegotsoccer will provide our NEW online uniform ordering platform for the 20/21 season. Wegotsoccer is a local company located in Taunton MA. They will replace as our online club uniform and apparel vendor.    

Partnering with Toptekkers and TheCoachingManual has given us the platform to provide online training throughout the club as well as the team zoom training sessions our coaches have performed over the past several weeks. As we enter a new normal, we plan to continue with an online platform to provide our players with as many opportunities to grow and develop as well rounded players.

We have updated our Mission, Vision, Core Values and Philosophy and posted them on our website. We feel it is important that you see that we care, and we are committed and determined to provide you with a quality player development program competing at the highest possible level at an affordable cost.

As noted in previous emails,  ALL players will be offered a roster spot for the 2020/21 season, however we will run ID clinics for team placement and new player recruitment once we are able to do so.  

Thank you,

 Spirit of Liverpool USA Administration

Our coaching staff and our players are all excited and ready to learn the Celtic way.”
