Three more Wolves join for 2016


FC Buffalo head coach Brendan Murphy added another three players to the 2016 roster, the club announced Thursday.

2015 NPSL All-Midwest First Team midfielder Andrew Ferguson is joined by former Niagara teammate Nicky Watson and ex-Canisius star striker Regan Steele on the roster for 2016.

“Not only is this our deepest and most talented roster, it’s our largest,” said co-owner and general manager Nick Mendola. “With wildly differing academic calendars, we will have an incredible amount of competition for spots in the lineup later in the season.
