Despite suffering from jet lag that had him wide awake at 3AM this morning, new Rocket City United assistant coach, Mike Lee, was able to get to his first RCU practice this afternoon. He was nice enough to talk to me about his role with the team and his thoughts about his first practice.
Lee, who is a former player of RCU coach Desmond Armstrong at Montreat College in North Carolina, is a native of South Africa and has recently completed a tour of English training grounds and youth academies including Sunderland and Newcastle.
In other news, Rocket City United will host the Nashville Metros of the PDL in their second preseason match of the year next Saturday at 7:30. The location of the match has not been finalized.
