Will Seymore makes move from USA to Ireland
After spending the last nine years in the United States, both at university and playing soccer, client Will Seymore has made the move back to Europe.
The 27-year-old returns having graduated from Oregon State University and played professionally for a number of teams like FC Cincinnati and Reno 1868 FC.
Seymore’s two-year spell with Reno was brought to an end when the midfielder put pen to paper to sign for League of Ireland Premier Division side Sligo Rovers.
Midfielder makes the move back to Europe
Before going to the USA in 2011, Seymore grew up playing for Colchester United, Cambridge United and Soham Town Rangers.
The midfielder, during his time as a student-athlete, also spent time with Portland Timbers U23 and Lane United of USL League Two.
Seymore spoke about making the move back across the pond and said it is an “aspiration” for any footballer to play the game in Europe.
“Moving from the US to Europe is always an aspiration for any player and I was able to do it, which is huge and great because every player wants to play in Europe,” Seymore said. “The chance to qualify for a European competition is huge.”
He continued: “I had always been looking to make a move back to Europe and closer to home. A teammate of mine at Cincinnati Richie Ryan, played at Sligo and we all connected and moved forward that way.”
Seymore will take winning mentality into new season
Seymore was drafted in the third round of the 2015 MLS SuperDraft by FC Dallas. He later went on to sign for USL side Whitecaps FC 2 before signing for FC Cincinnati in 2018.
The new season gets underway in mid-February and Seymore will be looking to make an impact for his new team.
The midfielder spoke about his aims and ambitions for the coming season and said his mentality is to “win”.
Seymore said: “I have personal goals to play as many minutes as possible and play as many games, but my main goal is to play well and to help the club achieve silverware.
“Then any goals I have will be positively affected from the team success. I take my mentality everywhere I go because I always want to win. I want my teammates to want to win too.”
