Sacramento Gold FC has added two more players – Andre Brown and Steven da Fonte -- to its roster for the 2016 NPSL season. Both will be a part of the Gold for the first time.
Andre Brown joins the Gold after four years with the UC Davis men’s soccer team. He played in all but one of the team’s matches in both his junior and senior seasons. The Los Angeles native was also a Big West Conference All-Academic Team selection his senior year. Brown earned All-CIF recognition and was first team All-Mission League during his senior year at Loyola High School.
Steven da Fonte has experience playing in the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, having been a part of Westchester Flames’ PDL. The New York native has also trained with CD Aves (Portuguese 2nd Division) and New York Red Bulls II (USL), his brother, Mike, having played for the latter. The family moved to the West Coast after Mike was signed by Sacramento Republic FC this past offseason.
