[ SUPPORT: Sponsor a player for the summer ]

FC Buffalo continues to fill out its roster for the 2016 NPSL season with an exciting trio of WNY-based players, two of whom are Buffalo-born and bred.

Midfielders Braden Scales and Hunter Walsh play for Stu Riddle at the University at Buffalo and are products of St. Joseph’s Collegiate Institute in Kenmore.

Also joining the club is Niagara defender Koby Sapon-Amoah. The 5-foot-11 Texan plays for Bill Boyle, and started nearly every match as a freshman for the Purple Eagles.

“This trio of players will provide great options at a few different spots,” said head coach Brendan Murphy. “We see qualities in each of them that will translate very well into the NPSL. We are happy to continue our positive relationship with these two local programs.”
