Details announced for men’s soccer alumni weekend

BANNER ELK, N.C. --- The Lees-McRae College men's soccer program is pleased to announce the details for its alumni game, slated for April 16, 2011, as well as a signing day for incoming freshmen earlier that afternoon.

The alumni game is a great opportunity for former Bobcats to meet new and current players, and enjoy a friendly match along with good food and drink afterwards. Post-game dinner and festivities will take place at the Banner Elk Café located minutes from the pitch. Prior to kickoff, head coach Matt Thompson and his staff will officially welcome the program's next freshman class into the Bobcat family with a special signing day ceremony.

Lees-McRae enjoyed a tremendous season this past fall, concluding the campaign with a 13-5-3 record and advanced to its fourth straight NCAA Tournament appearance after capturing the program's fourth consecutive Conference Carolinas regular season title. The Bobcats are expected to return 16 lettermen for their Conference Carolinas Tournament Championship squad, including all-Conference Carolinas First Team selections David Palmer (Gateshead, England), Luke Perry (Cheshire, England), and Luke Duffy (Wakefield, England).
