Three FCB alums have new pro homes

[ ON SALE: 2016 season ticket packages ]

Three FC Buffalo alumni from Season One to this past summer have found new homes around the world in recent weeks.

Ex-FCB captain Daniel Stevens (University at Buffalo, pictured above) was FCB’s first Grankulla_IFK_logo.svgplayer to go professional, and the first to play abroad. After scoring 15 goals in 48 matches for PS Kemi Kings in Finland from 2011-12, he moved to BK-46 where he scored 12 in 26.

After a season with FC Vikings in the same country, he’s back in the Finland’s second tier, the Ykkonen. Stevens has started preseason with new club Grankulla IFK (GrIFK) this week.

Longtime FCB goalkeeper Andrew Coughlin (Canisius College) has signed his first pro deal and is starting in goal for arena soccer side the Syracuse Silver Knights. He was named to the MASL Team of the Week during his first week on the job.

Finally, another University at Buffalo product is going to play in Slovenia’s third-tier. Striker Kristian Lee-Him scored a goal and made a handful of substitute appearances for FCB in 2014 before finishing his studies at UB. Lee-Him’s new side is called MNK Izola.
