Duo kicking it with Whitecaps this season

A pair of Langley soccer products have landed full-time spots within the Vancouver Whitecaps FC Residency programs.

Fourteen-year-old John Kasper, who began in the Langley United Soccer Association before switching to Surrey United SC, was named to the Whitecaps U15 roster.

And on the girls side, 17-year-old Carley Radomski was named to the U18 girls elite program.

The midfielder/defender got her start with Langley FC before joining Magnusson Ford Mariners FC.

Whitecaps FC U-18 Girls Elite open their MWSL season on Sept. 9. As a provisional member, all Whitecaps FC Girls Elite results will count in the MWSL Premier standings. However, the team will not be eligible for post-season play.

This past summer, the Girls Elite team finished as runner’s up in both the Pacific Coast Soccer League (PCSL) Premier Women’s regular season, and in the 2012 Challenge Cup.

Internationally, four girls from last year’s Girls Elite squad played on the Canadian U-17 women’s national team that qualified for next month’s 2012 FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup in Azerbaijan, including Radomski.

Kasper and his teammates will play a schedule of friendlies against local competition. Exhibition matches are scheduled within the Pacific Northwest region against elite club teams, including teams from the EA SPORTS BC Soccer Premier League (BCSPL), Major League Soccer Academies, and other USSDA Pre-Academy teams.
