Two More Re-signed

With Clubs Unwilling to Negotiate Alamo City Makes Personnel Decisions

It wasn't for lack of trying, but it appears that the Alamo City Battle have come up dry in the off-season negotiation department.  "Several clubs were contacted, in fact, they all were ... even the expansion sides.  What really bugs us, is that only a few even bothered replying.  That's just poor.  We understand if clubs don't want to deal or if they don't want to deal with us.  That's fine.  But to not even reply ?  Just poor ... It'll all come back around."

Things have been quite tense at the Alamo City offices the last couple of weeks.  While the club tried to negotiate and make some moves and the majority of the league simply ignored the inquiries waters were boiling down in Texas.  Despite several thoughts of putting out a press release on that matter the club decided to make their own deals, with their own players.

Mauro Diaz has officially been named the club's 2nd Designated Player.
Tesho Akindele has officially been named the club's Retention Player.

Going into the 2015 BSL Draft the Alamo City Battle will already be armed with Obafemi Martins, Mauro Diaz, and Tesho Akindele.

New Year - Same Battle

Alamo City SC Sets Tone For New Season With First Official Press Release

- San Antonio

First and foremost we want to say "Happy New Year" to the BSL Network and fans.  It has been one heck of an off-season so far with player movement and numerous opportunities opening up for the league and of course us.  Most notably is the departure of club and league legend Thierry Henry.  Our on-field and locker room leader for four seasons has chosen to move on from the playing portion of his career and we have nothing but thanks and praise for his efforts.  It is time though, to move forward.  We have and fully believe that a player already on our roster can step forward and carry the torch that Henry lit so brightly here.  Alamo City SC fully endorses its belief and officially announces that Obafemi Martins will return Alamo City for 2015 as a Designated Player.  Oba has lit the BSL on fire since his arrival just like Henry did.  This past season we saw him grow comfortable with the style and pace of the league and we cannot be happier or more optimistic about what the future holds. 

With the option to retain a second player via the Designated Player mechanism, Alamo City is digging deep into the roster and identifying possible candidates but is open to trades and/or purchasing a player from another squad.  At this time we have three players (Tesho Akindele, Harry Ship, Gonzalo Pineda) that are eligible for the Retention Player slot.  Analysis is ongoing on these players and a decision isn't imminent as there is over a month before the deadline for both DP and Retention players.

Alamo City is actively looking into trades for draft picks.

More news as it becomes available.
