2015 Signings Round-Up

The weather is still frightful which means the pre-season has been delayed a bit. There hasn’t been a ton to talk about in the recent weeks, so let’s take a moment to recap a bunch of player signings within the last month or so.

Kevin Kerr Returns

Not much to say about this one other than we’re glad to see the official announcement that Kerr is back. There were some whispers and then silence which got us worried. Kerr is a solid midfielder who joins other returning players in what we hope will be the strong core of the team.

The Hounds sign another defender in Drew Russell

Russell is a 24 year old, second year pro following coach Steffens from Charlotte. Being a defender there’s not a whole lot of stats to look up on him,…



2015 Steel Army AGM Recap

agm

 

We kicked off the 2015 season on Sunday, February 22nd with our Annual General Meeting!  A huge thanks to everyone who came out (~50 of you!) and a special thanks to Richard Nightingale and the Riverhounds Front Office, for providing not only the venue, but a full buffet & beverages for everyone.  Much like the Oscars later that night, our meeting ran over its allotted time, but for all the best reasons.  It was jam-packed with discussion and information, all of which we’ll try to summarize for you here!

Riverhounds FO Q&A

Riverhounds President Richard Nightingale began our meeting by introducing himself, Head Coach Mark Steffens, and owner Tuffy Shallenberger.  Richard and Mark did most of the talking, passing the metaphorical “talking stick” back and forth as the questions from the Steel Army members warranted.  The Q&A section lasted over an hour, the contents of…



Annual General Meeting Is Today!

2015 Steel Army Annual General Meeting

Today, 3PM

Highmark Stadium

After months of waiting for a new season to roll around, we officially kick off the Steel Army year with the AGM. We know there may be a decent amount of new people showing up today, so we’ve put together an FAQ of things we’ve been asked in the last couple of weeks as well as some additional information.

Q: Where should I park for the AGM and for games?

A: You should be looking to park in what we’ve referred to as the West Lot. It is the parking lot that is on the same side of the stadium as the offices, locker rooms, and no longer will be referred to as the bistro. Refer to this map to help guide. Basically, if you do not drive underneath the Fort Pitt Bridge, you are in the…



A Message From Team President Richard Nightingale

2015 Steel Army Annual General Meeting

Sunday, February 22, 3PM

Highmark Stadium

Disclaimer: This letter is from Richard Nightingale and was sent to us in advance of Sunday’s AGM. It does not speak for the Steel Army and should not be considered as such. The Steel Army has been and always will be an independent voice for the supporters of the Pittsburgh Riverhounds and our opinions about the team and its management will be sincere. There has always been a clear opinion of many that the team needed to have a more open and transparent relationship with its supporters. We believe that stronger relationship started last season and will continue to grow this season.

 

TO: THE STEEL ARMY

FROM: RICHARD NIGHTINGALE (President, Pittsburgh Riverhounds Soccer Club)

I look forward to welcoming you all to Highmark Stadium, the home of The Pittsburgh Riverhounds Soccer Club for your AGM on Sunday…
