Grays Harbor Gulls FC have added General Manager Daniel Langer for the start of the 2022 season. He will be working with Head Coach Drew Grannemann and club president Ben Barene as the Gulls prepare for their 4th season of action.
The club was founded in 2018, and competed in the Western Washington Premier League. Over the past few seasons, the league has continued to grow. Starting in 2022, the league will be called the Cascadia Premier League, a more encompassing name for the growing league. To adapt to the growing landscape, Langer will take over the General Manager duties and oversee the Gulls on field product with coach Grannemann. The move allows club president Ben Barene to explore ways to grow the club, most importantly a competitive youth program that will allow young soccer players to compete at a higher level than what is currently provided in the Harbor.
“Daniel has shown he has the best interest of the club in mind since he arrived in Grays Harbor.” Barene said. “He has a wealth of ideas and creativity and will be a valuable asset as our club continues to grow.”
Langer moved to Grays Harbor with his family from Renton in 2019 and joined the Gulls last season and became an important piece of the club both on and off the field. He is currently also involved with the Hoquiam soccer program and Harbor Youth Soccer.
“We are pleased to bring Daniel into the fold. He brings a strong desire and passion to grow and promote the Gulls. I look forward to working closely with him this season as we work to reshape and redefine our culture. ”Coach Grannemann said.
The 2022 season will kick off in late April and run through July. Preseason open fields will start in January with tryouts in late February. Official dates are yet to be released.
