Former Coast Players Sign With Battery
Monday April 4, 2016
CHARLESTON — Four teenage prospects from the S.C. Battery Academy have joined the Charleston Battery 2016 roster through a program that allows USL teams to sign amateur players from their affiliated academies without it costing the prospect his NCAA eligibility.
The players are: Forwards Robbie Robertson of Camden and Conor Sloan of Murrell’s Inlet, midfielder Alex Henderson of Daniel Island, and defender-midfielder Cole Gulledge of Murrell’s Inlet.
This year’s crop of academy talent isn’t the first group to earn spots on the Battery’s available roster, but with Battery goalkeepers coach Dusty Hudock now in his first season as head coach of the S.C. Battery Academy U-18s, communication between the programs is improving.
“It’s a physical link between both programs,” Hudock said of his dual duties. And with more than six years as Coach Mike Anhaeuser’s assistant, the two men are on the same page when it comes to soccer talent.
“He has enough trust in me that when I recommend a player, he is willing to bring him in for a training session,” Hudock said. “On their part, we’ve had players who know their jobs and have been able to do them. We have to give credit to these guys for how well they’ve done.”
S.C. Battery Academy is an independently owned program that is affiliated with, but not managed by, the professional soccer club. It fields teams at the U14, U16 and U18 levels.
Cole Gulledge
Cole Gulledge
Cole Gulledge, 18, is a versatile 6-3 senior at St. James High School who will play for College of Charleston in the fall. He joined the academy four years ago and wound up making an appearance for the Battery last July in Charleston’s 2-1 exhibition loss to West Bromwich Albion. He calls that experience his best moment in soccer so far.
“Natural ability took over,” Gulledge said. “The crowd just went silent for me. (I was) playing alongside a great group of guys, they took me in well, and I just couldn’t be happier about it.”
At 6-3, he’s an aerial specialist who is working on his quickness and technical skills. “I’m more of a holding midfielder, sitting behind the playmaker, and I can also slide into a center back role, or even, as I did recently with the first team, I can slide out to the right back. I was pretty successful there.”
Alex Henderson 
Conor Sloan
Conor Sloan
Conor Sloan, 17, has known Gulledge since the two were four years old and they came up as players together in Murrells’ Inlet.
The 5-9 striker began to take soccer seriously after attending a camp in Alabama while he was still in middle school, and he’s appeared in Battery preseason matches. The left-footer plays forward, but prefers to work at left wing. He’s committed to Furman University.
“I would say my major strengths are probably my quickness and my speed, my ability to take players one-on-one. My weaknesses would be my right foot, that’s for sure. I need to work on that, and I have been.”
In the meantime, Gulledge has been the member of the academy contingent with the most Battery mileage.
“Every time he’s performed, Augie has been happy with him,” Hudock said. “He’s been more than satisfied with his knowledge, his tactical decision-making, and his physicality.
“Augie is a trust guy. He’ll give you enough rope, and then if do well, he’s going to give it to you more and more. He keeps asking for Cole. And Cole would probably knock out everybody on the field right now to play for the Battery. That’s how much he cares. He really wants this.”

“Coast FA is extremely proud of the achievement of Cole and Conor” said Coast FA DOC Ross Morgan, “They are a great example to all the younger boys and girls at Coast FA of what is possible through hard work and dedication.” They can often be seen at Socastee Park putting in extra work on their own. Many of our rec players will recognize them as they turn out to referee games in the McDonald’s rec league on their off weekends. We look forward to watching the next chapter of their soccer careers with excitement.

Coast U9 Boys Sweep St Patty Cup
Dateline: Monday March 14, 2016
Coast FA entered their top two U9 boys teams in the St Patty Cup over the weekend in Columbia, S.C. and both returned home with championship trophies. (U9 and U9 Champions) Coach Justin Wolf's group captured top honors in the first and second divisions of play posting a perfect 8-0-0 record along the way. " Not only is this group of boys very talented but they also put in the work at training. This age group is very consistent in their attendance each week and they are reaping the rewards this season" said Coach Wolf. 
The Coast 01 Red team finished as runner ups in the top division of U14 boys. Coach Thomas Tamale's team fought their way to the finals but ran into a very strong club from Ohio that only surrendered one goal in the tournament. " I am very proud of the team's accomplishment this weekend and am excited about the remainder of our spring season" added Coach Tamale.
Coach RJ Bass split his group into two balanced teams for the U8 girls division and brought home the best result possible. The Coast 07g Red met the Coast 07g Black in the championship match so the girls brought home all of the tournament hardware. " We were divided in pool play but united at the end while accepting the honors. This is a tight knit group of girls with a very bright future" said Coach Bass. 
Coast 05 Red Champs in Charleston
Dateline: Tuesday February 23

Coach Mario Benjamin's U10 boys squad earned a hard fought championship trophy over the weekend at the Charleston Battery Cup. The Coast 05 Red were placed in the top division against the best teams that Jacksonville Florida, Raleigh North Carolina and Mount Pleasant South Carolina could produce. The boys escaped the round robin qualifying matches with a 1-1-1 record setting up a rematch with Jacksonville in the final. After going down early the 05 Red pulled out a 3-2 victory and claimed top honors. " I do not know that I have ever been more proud of this team. They clawed their way through three very difficult matches to set up a rematch with a team that has beaten us handily the past two times that we have faced them. To finish on top of this event is a nice accomplishment" said Coach Benjamin.

Coast 05 Girls are Champs in Augusta
Dateline: Sunday January 31, 2016
Coach Cora Weaver had a good feeling about her squad going into the Columbia County Spring Shootout in Evans, Georgia over the weekend. Turns out she was right, her girls showed up ready to play and captured the U-10 championship. The team posted two clean sheets in the qualifying rounds and squeeked out a 2-0 victory in the finals." The girls were well prepared after several weeks of good training sessions and put together four very good results. They showed up focused and ready to play this weekend" said Coach Weaver.
Three other Coast teams came up short in championship matches to finish as finalists in the Columbia County event and at the Boys Rule tournament in Savannah, Georgia. The Coast 04 Black team coached by John Weaver could not find a way to beat the hometown Bulls 04 Red and dropped a 1-4 decision in the finals. Coach Vinny De La Cueva's Coast 02 Black team clawed their way to the championship match before coming up short 0-4 against Augusta Arsenal. Over in Savannah Coach Justin Wolf directed his Coast 06 Black team to three consecutive victories before falling in the finals 1-7 to Inter Atlanta FC Elite. 
Great way to start off the spring season !
