Big Changes for Charleston

Lots of changes are swirling around the Battery as the club begins to gear up for the Carolina Challenge Cup and the 2013 USL Pro season.  Camp begins tomorrow and the CCC kicks off in just over a week, so I'm sure we can look forward to news of the latest signings and returning players over the next several days.

Patterson Re-ups 

Perhaps the biggest news this week is that Nicki Paterson has agreed to terms, returning for his third season with the Charleston Battery.  The Scottish international has notched 20 goals and half a dozen assists playing for Charleston, earning over 50 caps for the Black and Gold.  Paterson is currently training with the New York Red Bulls, but is excited about his return to the Lowcountry.  He is expected to be available for selection in the Carolina Challenge Cup.

There are eleven other players currently listed on Charleston's 2013 roster.  They are as follows:
Micheal Azira  
Jose Cuevas    
Cody Ellison
Colin Falvey
Kevin Klasila
JC Mack
Taylor Mueller
Ryan Richter
Amadou Sanyang
John Wilson
Mark Wiltse

New Website

In case you haven't noticed, the Battery have just unveiled their entirely redesigned website.  The new page not only looks sharp, but it has a sleek design and an interface that's easy to navigate.  The site boasts several new features and links, including a detailed photo roster, simplified ticket purchasing, and my personal favorite Battery TV!

New Kit 

This year the club has moved from Umbro to Nike as the official provider of team apparel and gear.  The switch will encompass everything from training uniforms, player gear, and the official kit used by the Charleston Battery.  The new kit will be revealed February 15 in the press conference preceding the Carolina Challenge Cup.

New Sponsor

The team also has a new lead sponsor SPARCET.  SPARCET is a software company whose applications are used to recognize and engage employees across a network with the overall goal of boosting morale and productivity.
