The move signals the first stage of developing a partnership between Hartford Athletic and the Southampton Academy, which may in the future involve player loans. It also allows the club to strengthen the identification of talented young players in the US whilst sharing knowledge and experience of young player development.

Sounds like a win win. And HA needs wins.

Was just about to post this exact thing. A developing partnership with a Prem team? Yes please! Even if they ever get relegated, having a connection with an English Soccer club in the top two tiers of soccer is amazing.

This would keep HA alive for many seasons if this holds true and stays.

Pretty exciting news.

The relationship with Southampton would have carried more weight a few years ago when they had a great youth program. That has deteriorated as well as the 1st team.

To me, the hiring of Paul Buckle (Mr. Rebecca Lowe) as Technical Director is a good hire. His contacts within England will help with player recruitment more than the Southampton relationship.
