PORT ORCHARD, WA—Port Orchard Football Club continues to gather great players from all over Kitsap County and surrounding areas. Kingston goalkeeper Alex Worland is the latest player to be officially announced by the new Cascadia Premier League side.
“Alex is a guy that makes our keeper group strong right out of the gate,’ says Port Orchard FC Head Coach Pat Leonard. “He gets it and his leadership and communication back there will help us stay organized. We are excited to have him on board!”
Worland was highly respected when he played at Kingston High School (2015 graduate.) Memories of his performances have evolved over time into the stuff of legend. He was named league MVP his senior year. He also played premier with Bainbridge Island FC.
Now the challenge for Alex, who has continued to play indoor soccer as an adult, is to regain match form outdoors at a high level.
“Alex is a keeper with good experiences from his days at Kingston,” Leonard says. “I think having an assistant coach like Mark Nowak that has such high levels of experience and expertise in goalkeeping will take a player like Alex and give him the tools to only get better.”
Here Come The POFC Boys
Alex joins Hunter Milbrot (Silverdale), Sam Meade (University Place), Armando Valez (Lakewood) joins Sam Gomez (Bremerton), Kolby Juarez (Silverdale), Bryan Weathington (Port Orchard), Aidan Harvey (Bremerton) and Nick Riders (Bremerton) as announced from the Official Roster for the 2023 debut season of Port Orchard Football Club.
POFC will continue to announce players as the season approaches. The first-ever match comes on Sunday April 30 with a 3 PM Friendly against Nido Aguila Club America Seattle at South Kitsap High School’s Ed Fisher Field.
