Midweek Headlines: SSC merger, Williams ban reduced

Summerville Soccer Club has merged with the new Charleston Battery Soccer Club Youth Academy, and Romario Williams has served his ban after a red card against Richmond. It’s all in the Midweek Headlines.

Following last week’s announcement of the Battery’s new Youth Academy, the club  announced a merger with Summerville Soccer Club on Wednesday following a vote from the SSC board of directors and parents.

The club has been a staple of youth soccer in the area for 35 years, having been active since 1981. It currently is home to approximately 1,100 players, who will become the first players to play for Charleston Battery Soccer Club.

Romario Williams was issued a red card for a kick out at a defender against the Richmond Kickers last weekend and subsequently handed a three game ban. However following extensive conversations with the league, the ban had, as of Wednesday evening, been reduced to one match, and was served in Wednesday’s win over the Charlotte Independence, making him eligible for the clash with Orlando City B on Saturday, the 23rd.

The match against Orlando kicks off at 7:30 and is available to watch on MyTV Charleston or stream on the club’s website.
