Sierra Leone Sports: Salone player Mansaray failed to make Battery’s first roster

James Kamara said the Charleston Battery on Friday announced 12 initial players that would remain with the club for the 2019 USL Championship season. During the announcement, Sierra Leone native Victor Mansaray, who entered his first season with the Battery in 2018, was not amongst the names released. The club also confirmed negotiations with other members of the side that finished fourth in the Eastern Conference this past season. “With the tremendous growth of the league, it is a huge benefit for the Club and coaching staff to be able to bring back a quality core of players every season,” said Battery Head Coach and General Manager Mike Anhaeuser. “We’re looking forward to continuing to build the roster around these players.” He was named in the USL Team of the Week after scoring the winning goal against North Carolina FC in Week 29 last season. He trained with FC Cincinnati and Seattle Sounders 2 on loan in 2017 prior to joining Swedish third-tier club Umea FC in August. Mansaray joined Seattle as a Homegrown Player in November of 2014 at the age of 17, making him the youngest player ever to sign with the Sounders. The winger also became the youngest player in franchise history to play in a match when he made his first MLS appearance for Seattle months after signing.
