The latest guest on New England Soccer Journal’s “The Goal” podcast is an integral figure for one of the most respected youth clubs in New England.
Boston Bolts ECNL Director Sam Matteson joined the podcast with host Matt Langone for a compelling discussion that dove deeper into the spring ECNL season, how the league and the Bolts have developed over the years, and coaching at the club and college levels.
Matteson is a native of Stonington, Conn., and played midfield for Division 3 Mitchell College, before earning a master’s degree at the University of New Haven. He is in his seventh year with the Bolts, as he also coaches the 2007 and 2003/04 ECNL teams for the club, and this fall will be his third season as an assistant coach at Division 1 Holy Cross. He had previous coaching stints at New Haven, Bridgewater State University and Bryant University.
