Djorn Buchholz resigns as Louisville City president; Amanda Duffy tagged as replacement

By Taylor P. Sorrels:

The Coopers were made aware on Sunday afternoon that Louisville City FC’s first president, Djorn Buchholz had resigned from his position with the club, effective, essentially, immediately. Vice President of Operations Amanda Duffy has been named as his replacement in the same role.

The news was obviously quite a surprise to Coopers leadership. In the time he was with the club, Buchholz took great pains to engage with the Coopers, appearing on multiple podcasts and joining us for events and meetings. He will no doubt be missed, and we as a supporters club wish him nothing but the best in whatever direction his future may take him.

With respect to Duffy, while she is new(ish) to Louisville City FC, she’s not without a stacked resume, having been director of USL’s W-League prior to joining LCFC. We have nothing but confidence that she is up for the task of running the club in its inaugural season, and look forward to working with her for the best fan experience possible going forward.

What the new developments out of the USL Pro AGM means for Louisville City

By Taylor P. Sorrels:

Chances are high that unless you a) work for Louisville City FC or b) are one of the board members for the Coopers, you had no idea that USL Pro held their annual general meeting in Clearwater, Florida last weekend. But now you do! And, hoo boy, are there a lot of changes afoot. Read more »

Per Jonathan Lintner at the Courier-Journal:

[Juan] Guzman is a veteran who [Coach James] O’Connor, a former Orlando City Soccer Club player, faced off against in the 2013 USL Pro championship. He’s a 28-year-old Charlotte, N.C., native entering his sixth season in the league.

“He has very good attributes,” O’Connor said. “He’s a holding midfielder, so he can play a specific role and he’s going to be a very good asset for us.”

[Kadeem] Dacres, 23, is a former Chicago Fire draft pick but wasn’t signed by the Major League Soccer club. The Rosedale, N.Y., native went on to score three goals and add an assist last season with the Arizona United.

“Kadeem is a talented player who is fast, direct and a real threat to opposing teams,” O’Connor said. “He has great potential and I think he is one that will really excite our fans this upcoming season.”

The first-year head coach pulled [Guy] Abend, 24, from an Israeli league he scored two goals last season.

“He is a player I’ve had my eye on for a while,” O’Connor said. “I’m thrilled we could come to terms.”

THIS IS AWESOME! We Ka-deem this Juan special day in Louisville soccer history, you Guy(s)!
