Ladies and Gents, I’d like to introduce you to a pair of new boys in town. Eric and Lane Chapman arrived in Springfield a few days ago, after a visit to family in Kansas in time for Christmas. The boys and their parents moved here from Adelaide Australia, where they have lived for the past 10 years.
Erik (on the left) completed his secondary education on December 15th in Adelaide Australia and is enrolling at Missouri State. He’s been invited to train with the soccer team during the Spring semester. Lane (on the right) is enrolling at Kickapoo for the Spring semester where he’ll be a sophomore.
I took this picture at the Lake Country Soccer dome on Friday evening where the boys were observing the Bounds Soccer Systems training session. Expect to see them participating at the remaining sessions as well as around the area as they get to know the Springfield Soccer community. Be certain to say hello, they love the game the way we do!
