Silverbacks to host combines in search for talent

The Atlanta Silverbacks will host a series of professional combines, including two local sessions, in a search for talent for the 2013 North American Soccer League season.

The club will host combines Dec. 13-14 and Jan. 5-6, both at Silverbacks Park. It also plans two international combines, Dec. 7-9 in England and Dec. 9-11 in Germany, and another Jan. 26-27 in Thousand Oaks, Calif. For the domestic combines, head coach Brian Haynes and team advisor Eric Wynalda will evaluate talent. Wynalda also will be considering players for his California-based amateur club, Cal FC.

Men's players at the tryouts must be 18 or older. For more information, check www.atlantasilverbacks.com or email to nathan.charlton@atlantasilverbacks.com.
