Academy Director, Red Bulls Academy: Sean McCafferty

“We are very happy to be adding a player of Kevin’s quality to our U17 Academy. We are well aware of Kevin’s ability in possession, but he has also shown his willingness to work hard in the ball recovery phase of the game which is pleasing to see.

It will take Kevin a little time to fully understand our playing philosophy both with and without the ball, but we look forward to working with him on a day-to-day basis in an attempt to accelerate his development and ultimately help Kevin fulfill his potential here at New York Red Bull Academy.”

Academy Scout, Red Bulls Academy: Fouad Kawtari

“We are very pleased to have been able to sign Kevin Mearse to our Academy. He is an intelligent player who is brave both in and out of possession. Kevin is very efficient in possession and has also shown that he has the willingness and ability to recover the ball when we are out of possession, both of which are essential in our philosophy.

Kevin brings with him an edge that will be most certainly valuable to our club and we wish him all the best moving forward and cannot wait to have him excel within our environment.”

Academy Coach, Red Bulls Academy: Jonathan Rhodes

“We are delighted to add Kevin to our player pool. He quickly came in and impressed the coaching staff with his ability on the ball. He understands the importance of maintaining possession but at the same time has the courage needed to take risks and be a positive force in the attacking 3rd. During this short period, we have challenged Kevin with some of our against-the-ball learning objectives and he has demonstrated an open mind and willingness to adapt.

Kevin has all the attributes to progress within our program and we are looking forward to helping him on this journey.”
