Stockade head coach David Lindholm is excited about the start of the season.  "We’re thrilled that these players have decided to join Stockade FC this season. It’s a group capable of playing at a high level while also being great ambassadors for soccer in the Hudson Valley. I want to thank every player that tried out for the team, since they left us with a lot of difficult decisions and allowed us to make the strongest squad possible."
