The Dynamo announced Wednesday that the club would be starting a U-23 squad that would begin competing this season. Houston already boasts an academy, but this will help serve as a bridge between the academy and the first team. The team will fall under the direction of the Dynamo Academy and will be coached by James Clarkson, assistant director Eddie Robinson, and technical coordinator Tom Harris.
"This is another step forward for our player development system," Dynamo director of youth development James Clarkson said in a press release from the team. "It will be great to work with the college players again and hopefully we find some outstanding talent at the Trials. I'm very confident of putting together a very competitive group this summer."
The season for the team will run from mid-May until mid-July. They will be competing in the Copa Alianza in May as well as the U.S. Men Under-23 Cup Tournament that will run from June 13-15.
The team will be hosting trials to help complete the roster for the squad at a soon to be determined time.
