Sacramento Republic FC have continued to make moves throughout the season, adding 15-Year-Old Forward Quincy Butler to an Academy Player on a Professional Team contract.
This is the first time Sac Republic has signed a player to such a contract, which allows Butler to be called upon during a Sac Republic match, but will preserve his status as an amateur.
Butler has been a part of the Sacramento Republic FC’s development academy since it first started in 2015 and has been impressive from the start. He scored 26 goals while playing in 64 contests since he first joined the academy and most recently played for SRFC’s U-17 team.
“Quincy impressed me when I watched the academy play,” said Republic FC Head Coach and Technical Director Paul Buckle. “He currently is involved with the first team, though the emphasis will be about training and gaining experience. We have high hopes for him.”
It will be interesting to see how the young lad is going to be used in such a crowded group of forwards, joining the likes of Wilson Kneeshaw, Harry Williams, Gabe Gissie, Sammy Ochoa, Lamin Suma, Tyler Blackwood, Trevin Caesar, Christian Chaney, and Matt Wiesenfarth. It will be fun to see when Paul Buckle has a starting lineup of 1 goalie and 10 forwards.
