WENATCHEE, WA — Wenatchee FC of the Evergreen Premier League had been sitting on some pretty big news all week, Finally on Thursday night at Foothills Middle School WFC and Wenatchee Fire Youth Soccer unveiled their plan to align with each other in a move that clears a single club pathway for players from Cashmere to Wenatchee to all of the Valley to go from rec to elite youth to semi-pro under one badge: the green and gold of the “Capitals.”
Friday morning WFC youth coaches Matt Wisen and Neil Oyston got up early to sit in on KW3 103.9 morning radio and share the news with Connor and Mel. They brought t-shirts with the club crest and Oyston played along as the DJ’s asked him to interpret British figures of speech and what they mean there and in America (Oyston is from the Cleveland area of England.)
Finally as the music boomed on in the background the guys were able to talk about the new aligned club. It also seems that Connor didn’t get the news that earlier WFC had dropped “United” from their name. Now he has a shirt to remind him!
