Liverpool FC IA Texas 2000 Boys Keegan team qualified this year to participate in the prestigious Dallas Cup Tournament. The Dallas Cup is one of the most coveted youth soccer tournaments in the world and attracts elite level teams from more than 6 continents, 30 international countries and across the US to participate. The 2000 Boys Keegan team, under the direction and leadership of Director Colin Rocke has been working towards qualification for several years and this year achieved it with a combination of results in league play as well as tournament results.
Many of the 2000 Keegan players have been together for five plus years, training, growing, gaining strength, earning success and prominence through their dedication and loyalty to their Liverpool team. While many are looking forward to playing soccer at the collegiate level, they opted to earn those pathways together, with their coach as a team rather than jump to leagues that promise results. After watching the team grow and develop for years, Coach Colin Rocke summed it up this way, “It is a very special team with an unwavering support for each other. I am very proud of this accomplishment and we look forward to competing and representing Liverpool in the Dallas Cup this year.”
The Dallas Cup 00 B Keegan team schedule is:
Sunday March 25th- Richland College #3 2 – 0 Win
