LMU Men's Soccer Puts Finishing Touches On 2009 Roster

HARROGATE -- Lincoln Memorial University soccer coach Helio D'Anna has put final touches on his roster for 2009.  Two players have chosen LMU and will suit up this Fall.  They are Calum Calder (Strathaven, Scotland) and Chris Matthews (Toronto, Canada).

Calder attended Strathaven Academy in Scotland and played with Strathaven Dynamo soccer club.  A 5'10" midfilder, he was a Player of the Year three times with the Dynamo and a Player of the Year one time with the Gretna U14's club team.  He also won four silver medals in high schools sports in serveral disciplines from sprints to long jump.  He has also played youth soccer with Glasgow Rangers and Airdrie United FC.  According to Andrew Kean (FirstPoint USA), "Calum is a very fast player who has been coached at a high level.  His ability to get on the ball from deep positions as well as find space makes him a real asset.  He is highly regarded at FirstPoint."
Calder is also an accomplished student and will pursue Physics while at LMU.  He is the son of Alan and Elaine Calder.
 
Matthews is a 6'0" forward and attended Humberside Collegiate High School.  He also has played for the Swansea Eagles since 2005 where his team has won several tournaments including the Ottawa Icebreaker, Downsview Hanger Xmas TNT and were TSA league champs in 2006.  In 2007, Matthews led his team in scoring to capture the outdoor CSL title.  Chris’s team won the city of Toronto U-15 championship in 2006 and were promoted upward into the south Central Ontario regional system winning again at U-16 and at U-17 regionally.  Last season he recorded 15 goals and 10 assists in 19 games.  This past winter, his team competed in a provincial level 11 v 11 league against the highest age class teams in the province.  For the past three years, Chris has played under the tutelage of Adrian Llewellyn who before taking up coaching full time spent two years in the German Bundesligua after four years in the NCAA and time with the Canadian national team.  Adrian Llewellyn says, “Lincoln Memorial University is quite fortunate to have acquired such an endowed soccer player who has scored superior goals in clutch situations.  In all my years of coaching, I have yet to come across a more natural goal scorer than Chris.  From my point of view Chris can only become a more dangerous striker under a competitive program over the next few years."  The son of Fred Matthews and Jane Tucker, Chris will pursue Business Administratuin at LMU.
 
"These two young men will fit right in," says D'Anna.  "As with all the players on the roster, they have unique traits they bring to the program.  I look forward to seeing them in action this Fall."  The Railsplitters begin the fall season August 27 against Asbury College.
