Orange County SC are Making Moves in Busy December

After a second half collapse that forced the club out of the playoffs, Orange County SC have since made a list of wholesale changes this offseason, especially this month.

Earlier in the offseason, the club parted ways with first-time manager Logan Pause. The former Chicago Fire man was 11-11-10 as manager missing out on the playoffs by three points.

In the beginning of December, the club re-signed experienced midfielder Richard Chaplow and upstart Zach Kobayashi. Both players will be critical for their upcoming 2018 campaign.

On Friday, the club also announced that Braeden Cloutier, the assistant to Logan Pause last season, was the man to replace him as manager for the 2018 campaign.

Finally, in a coup, the club have signed one of the premier performers in the Western Conference last season in Christian Duke. His experience in midfield will be vital for OCSC in their push for a playoff spot next season.
