           MYSA/BBSC Director Gary Hamilton

Recognized by fans of Middlesbrough FC 

Middlesbrough Football Club of the English Premier League recently named MYSA Executive Director Gary Hamilton to its all-time team. The club nominated 30 former stars, 10 each from three distinct eras; 1876-1966, 1966-86 and 1986-present.  Fans voted Hamilton, a former midfielder, top of the 1966-86 poll. Hamilton played 272 games for the club before being forced to retire through injury at 26.

MYSA and Border Bandits are proud of the accomplishments of its Director and would like to congratulate Hamilton on this recognition. As top vote getter of his era, Hamilton will have his name added to the "Boro Brick Road," dedicated to the club’s legends and the fans who have cheered them on.

Practice Makes Permanent

 

 

  McAllen Youth Soccer Association executive director Gary Hamilton, right, keeps his eye on the action on the field at a soccer camp held Tuesday afternoon at the soccer fields on Bicentennial Boulevard in McAllen.

 August 17, 2007  

‘Practice Makes Permanent’: A retired soccer star is bringing his expertise to coaching.

When Gary Hamilton left England 15 years ago, he couldn’t walk down the street without someone recognizing him.

Hamilton, now 41, played professional soccer for the Middlesbrough Football Club for 10 years. The midfielder retired with a knee injury in 1992.

Now that he lives in McAllen, Hamilton doesn’t have to worry about overzealous fans.

Tribute to RVYSA President, Joe Bazan's Son

Jersey No. 12 saved for Harlingen family

A game like soccer has the ability to unite a team.

But for the Bazan family of Harlingen, seeing jersey number 12 out on the field has helped them through the most difficult of times.

The Bazans said a Tuesday game pitting Harlingen Cardinal's boys soccer team against the Harlingen South Hawks has special meaning for them.

"I didn't get the number 12 until my junior year due to my brother having it," said Daniel Joseph Bazan. "So, I had to watch him wear that big number 12 and I always wanted it. I always wanted to wear that number. I always wanted him to be proud of me."

Facebook campaign roots for Gary Hamilton

 

 Facebook campaign roots for Gary Hamilton

A Facebook campaign has begun, rooting for former midfielder Hammy as the next Boro manager.

Organiser Liz Hamilton said: “I started the campaign to spread the word and within the first few hours more than 100 fans have pledged their support.”

Those supporters include former Boro defender Paul Ward, who wants to be Hammy’s assistant!

Since retiring from the Boro in 1992, action man Gary has been executive director of the South Texas Soccer Academy in McAllen, Texas.

McAllen's Hamilton getting support for Middlesbrough job

Gary Hamilton thinks he might be the right man to bring English soccer club Middlesbrough FC to prominence.  And at least 300 people on Facebook agree.

 

Hamilton, who currently serves as the executive director of the McAllen Youth Soccer Association and head coach of the Dynamo South Texas Academy, is a darkhorse candidate for the vacant manager position at second-division Middlesbrough, the club he played for from 1983 to 1992. His candidacy is being supported by a Facebook group called “Gary Hamilton for Middlesbrough FC Manager” started last Tuesday by his daughter Liz Hamilton.

 

“I kind of did the gentle nudge to say, ‘Why can’t you apply for that? You’re qualified,’” Liz said. “I guess he didn’t have the confidence but I wanted to show him how many fans do love him and are rooting for him. And it’s worked.”

 

Since the group started, it has grown to 302 members as of Saturday afternoon. On Friday, he appeared on BBC radio in Middlesbrough to talk about his candidacy, one that seems well-received by the club’s supporters.

MAYOR RICHARD CORTEZ KICKS OF FALL SEASON 2010 FOR MYSA

College athlete from Valley wins a national championship

By JIM McKONE   Published: Thursday, January 6, 2011 

Sarah Stansell of McAllen hit the winning soccer goal that enabled Hardin-Simmons University to advance to the national championship game in December.

Her winning shot in penalty kicks gave Hardin-Simmons a chance to play in the finals of the National Collegiate Athletic Association Division III Women’s Soccer Championship. HSU was looking for its first Division III team title in any sport.

“This means everything to us,” said Stansell, after 110 minutes of a defensive struggle that resulted in a 0-0 tie with Ohio’s Otterbein University. “We have worked hard to get here, and I know we are going to face a great team. I am just so excited to be playing for a national title.”
Stansell and the HSU Cowgirls went on to face the two-time defending champions, Messiah College of Pennsylvania, defeating them 2-1. HSU finished the season with a 24-0-1 record and ranked number one in the country. Stansell, a four-year starter for the Cowgirls, served as a captain and started all 25 games this season.

 Special-needs children get a shot at soccer

April 11, 2011 7:23 PM   Ildefonso Ortiz  The Monitor

Luisa Ramirez watched her 7-year-old daughter, Sara, run across the soccer field — and score.

The mother smiled and cheered, but the young player didn’t celebrate: She ran back to her position and waited for the ball to come her way before kicking it again.

That brought more cheering from her coaches and family.

“She tells her friends that she plays soccer,” Ramirez said. “This is her game.”

South Texas teams to compete in prestigious Dallas Cup tournament
South Texas teams to compete in prestigious Dallas Cup tournament

April 01, 2012  Alex E. Pena  Special to The Monitor

Ted Nonov remembers his time as a 13-year-old enrolled at Monterrey C.F.’s youth soccer academy and seeking the advice of the older players. Like any other kid, he’d dream of making it big.

Now, a 19-year old graduate from McAllen High, Nonov reflects on those many experiences as his Under 19 Houston Dynamo South Texas Academy squad opens play in the prestigious Dallas Cup today. The Dynamo is sending two teams — its Under 19 and under 13 teams.

for full story click on link:http://www.themonitor.com/articles/monterrey-59829-year-teams.html

Dallas Cup is the oldest international youth soccer tournament in the United States, celebrating its 30th year in 2009. The Texas Longhorns Soccer Club founded the tournament and it was originally a way for the club to return the friendship shown to their teams that had traveled throughout Europe. When applying for the first tournament’s sanction it was called “The Texas Cup”. As this name was already in use by another organization the name “Dallas Cup” was selected by the tournament organizers. Since its inception in 1980, Dallas Cup has played host to teams and referees from over 45 states, 100 countries and 6 continents. The tournament is held every spring from Palm Sunday to Easter Sunday.

Dallas Cup Update Day 1

www.houstondynamo.com/news/2012/04/dallas-cup-update-day-1

The Houston Dynamo Academy kicked off the Dr. Pepper Dallas Cup on Sunday and got off to a rough start, losing all three games they played.

The Academy U-16s, who are competing in the U-17 bracket, fell 4-2 to UAE Precor, a youth team from the United Arab Emirates. Midfielder Carlos Ibarra picked up a red card in the 10th minute and the Dynamo found themselves in a 2-0 hole after the 30-minute mark. The squad regrouped in the second half behind goals from Bryan Salazar and Elochukwu Ozumba, but the defense could not keep UAE Precor off the board. Edgar Garibay scored in the 68th minute and Tim Ruhrseitz scored off a free kick in the 73rd minute to give the Middle Eastern side the opening match victory.
