Railsplitter Soccer Team Adds Two More Players for 2009 Season

HARROGATE, TN - Lincoln Memorial University Soccer Coach Helio D'Anna has received word that two more players will be joining the squad for the 2009 season. Chris Nash (Cuffley, England) and Lucas Pereira (Monte Siao, Brazil) will make LMU their home with the beginning of 2009 preseason workouts.

Nash is a 6'0 ft midfielder, who from the age of 11 was a member of the West Ham Elite squad.  As a junior player, Nash represented the Amateur Football Alliance county team playing games around the country.  He also played with a successful school team at Goffs High School which reached the semi finals of the National School Championships in 2006.  Nash recently played for the Chestnut FC U18 in the Southern Counties Academy floodlit League and now represents Cheshunt FC at the senior level.  "Chris is extremely talented with a fantastic technical ability," says Cheshunt FC Coach Gavin Harman.  "He is equally able with both feet, has good balance and has a good sense of vision.  He leads by example inspiring players around him."  "Chris is a very nice addition to the team," says D'Anna.  "He is strong but technical and has a nice touch.  He will fit well for our style of play."
Nash is son of Kay and Michael and will pursue business as a major at LMU
 
Pereira comes to LMU as a transfer from Coffeyville Community College, a Division I NJCAA school.  A 6'1" defender and Brazilian native, Pereira played in the youth systems of Brasilis FC.  This is a team founded by Brazilian national team legend "Oscar" Jose Bernardi.  During his youth career, Pereira won a number of titles representing his club until a chance to come to the United States became available.  After two years competing at Coffeyville, the defender caught the attention of LMU head coach Helio D'Anna.  "Lucas is technical and strong," says D'Anna.  "He shows good leadership skills and maturity and is also an excellent student and a person of excellence."

Pereira is a Phi Tetta Kappa academic award recipient and the son of Carlos and Ines Pereira.  He will pursue a degree in business while attending Lincoln Memorial University.
 
The LMU soccer team is now going through their spring workouts and is gearing up for what promises to be an exciting year in 2009.
