IRVINE, Calif.- A fresh breeze of European air has arrived at the Orange County Blues FC as they officially sign US born players Seth Moses and Fabrice Gautrat. Both Gautrat and Moses look forward to further develop their skills on US soil alongside OC Blues FC.
Seth Moses, 20, joins OC Blues FC after a brief stint in the PDL with the Baltimore Bohemians in 2013. Moses previously played for Austrian side SC Rheindorf Altach II and USV Eschen-Mauren where he spent a season with each club. “It feels great. I like the weather, I’m excited for the beaches, it’s a different vibe compared to Baltimore.” said Moses, regarding his new California state. “The team itself is welcoming, I like the players, I’m ready to get my career started.”
“A player with a great future for OC Blues; and he has the will to improve and he works really hard to achieve that,” said Head Coach Daryuosh Yazdani. “He should be nicknamed the team’s Gattuso (Former Milan Midfielder).”
Fabrice Gautrat, 26, joins OC Blues FC after three seasons overseas in France where he played in Championnat de France amateur (CFA), for Marseille Consolat, and UJA Maccabi Paris Métropole in Championnat de France amateur. “I am a hard worker, and I understand that nothing comes easy in this world without hard work. I am very positive and I know how to turn negative or dire circumstances into positive ones.”
Gautrat followed his dreams of playing professional soccer after his college experience at University of San Diego and The Master’s College, where they were named to the 2009 All- Tournament team of NAIA. Gautrat’s experience at Masters College has been a stepping stone to his professional soccer career. “Fabrice came from our first tryout back in November”, says General Manager Jon Spencer, “He is left footed and we feel he will be important at centre back or left back. He is another player we are excited to sign. He is someone with a desire to see his career move forward.”
