Newark, New Jersey – The USL announced today that Ironbound SC will be the newest club to join USL League 2. The club will compete in the Metropolitan Division.
“We are extremely excited to be participating in USL League 2. This is a great opportunity to extend the organization’s relationship with the USL, which dates back to 1993. It is an opportunity for our staff to take their game to the next level.”
The club’s mission is to provide underserved players from New Jersey and New York with the opportunity to create a professional future and play the game at the highest level at the lowest cost.
“We are thrilled to welcome Ironbound SC to League Two,” said Joel Nash, Vice President of USL Youth and Pre-Professional Properties. “The club has a well-documented history of helping footballers reach the next level and build careers in the sport.”
The football club started in 1983. That’s when Pastor Peter Uhde started a youth soccer program called Ironbound Strikers to enable children in his area to participate in healthy and positive activities. In 1987, Coutinho joined the club and helped the club become a nationally recognized programme.
In 2006 Ironbound merged with other large clubs in the region to form Ironbound SC. Since then, they have been involved in competitions for his USL academy, partnered with professional clubs as youth development affiliates, and now Leeds, his United midfielder, and Hudson, who is the technical director of the Hammers. One Tyler he has been training Adams for.
