PGSA Board Candidate Bio's

Voting Member :

Joseph R. McAlduff

My name is Joey McAlduff and I would like to join the PGSA Board to help continue the progress of the club for years to come. I believe that becoming a member of the PGSA board would allow me to network and grow our organization bigger than it already has become.  My number one objective would be to help raise more money to benefit our kids and eventually creating a new facility that would be competitive with surrounding areas. 
I grew up in Goldsboro, NC and have been around soccer virtually all my life.  I began playing at 4 years old and eventually played soccer at Barton College.  I moved to Greenville in 1999 and have either coached, played or refereed soccer ever since. I currently hold a USSF National “D” License in Coaching Soccer.
My PGSA involvement began around 2006 playing with the adult league.  I volunteered multiple years as a future stars coach and eventually helped with our academy program.  I am currently the 2007 Boys Classic Soccer Coach.  I currently work at Hyster-Yale Group as a CPQ Analyst and have an MBA from the University of Mount Olive.  My dedication to developing our youth and club takes a high priority with me, I hope you will seriously consider me for a seat at the board.

Espen Spangenburg

Hello, thank you for giving me the opportunity to tell you more about myself and how I can be an asset to the Pitt-Greenville Soccer Association (PGSA).  My name is Espen Spangenburg, BS, MS, PhD, professor, avid soccer fan, and coach.   

I am an associate professor in the Brody School of Medicine at ECU.  I lead a research lab and teach classes to medical students about all things concerning skeletal muscle.  The focus of my research is on topics such as muscle injury, muscle fatigue, muscle hypertrophy/atrophy, muscle strength, and exercise physiology.  My lab is currently funded by the National Institutes of Health and I have raised millions of dollars to fund research on skeletal muscle function.  Overall, I have published more than 100 scientific articles on skeletal muscle function.  I am also currently in multiple leadership positions at ECU.

With relevance to the sport of soccer, I have also published physiological function measures of the former Hermann Award winner (like the Heisman award but for soccer).  I have also published results of research investigations on professional soccer leagues in England.   

I started playing soccer in 1979 and have coached youth soccer since 1998.  I currently hold US Soccer National D, E, and F coaching licenses.  I am also a standing member of the United Soccer Coaches Association.  I have coached classic teams in Virginia, Maryland, and North Carolina for large and small clubs. I have had former players move on to play soccer collegiately at places like William & Mary, Virginia Tech, etc.  One of my former players is currently the assistant coach of the women’s soccer team at the University of Miami.

All three of my sons have been involved in the PGSA academy program with two currently playing on PGSA Classic teams and one still active in the Academy.  Since we joined PGSA, I have been fortunate to coach at both the academy and classic level.  This fall I will continue my role as the head coach for the ’09 Boys Classic team and the ’11 Boys team in the PGSA Academy program.  

I am strong believer that we need to develop and maintain a strong core of coaches to ensure each player is given the opportunity to develop to his/her full potential as a soccer player. We can accomplish this in a number of ways including licensing of the coaches, mentoring, peer evaluations and in-services on a variety of topics run by the most experienced coaches in the club. 

I can also help the club raise money through philanthropic sources.  Recently, I was a significant contributor to PGSA’s effort in securing more than $70,000 in funding through a private foundation to redo field 3.   In my current profession, a significant part of my job requirement is obtaining grant money to conduct research, and thus I am in a strong position to help the PGSA leadership write grant applications as evidenced by the success I have had in raising funds both professionally and as a volunteer.  

Overall, my goal would be to help improve the experience for all the PGSA soccer players and their families. With my experience and background, I believe I can help PGSA with coaching development and improving the facilities at the soccer complex.

Thank you for considering me as a member of the PGSA leadership team.

Eric Smith

Hello, my name is Eric Smith and I’d like to be considered as a PGSA board member.  PGSA has become a major part of my families everyday life, and I wish to be a part of the successful future that lies ahead for this growing club.

I was first introduced to PGSA when my oldest daughter began playing Academy in 2017.  We fell in love with the organization and the purpose behind it.  I witnessed what the girls loved most, what the girls needed to succeed, and things that still need more work in order for PGSA to continue to be competitive among the other clubs. Our youngest daughter began to play Academy in 2018.  While my interest and desire’s do revolve around our daughter’s individual success, I do realize that their success is totally dependent upon the success of the overall organization. 
While my sports background as a child is solely based upon baseball, PGSA introduced me to soccer, and learning this game has been fun to say the least.  I have been employed by the City of Greenville for the past 20 years as a firefighter and paramedic.  I also operate a local lawn care business that began in 1996.  I am licensed by NC as a lawn and ornamental pesticide applicator, landscape contractor, and irrigation contractor.  I feel I would bring knowledge and experience in these areas to the board, as grounds maintenance is one of PGSA’s largest expenditures.  That said, my sole purpose would not only be to make sure PGSA has the greenest grass among all the clubs, but to offer guidance not only in grounds maintenance, but guidance in all areas that will coincide with the overall mission of PGSA to give every athlete the best opportunity they have to succeed.  

My wife, two daughters, and I spend a lot of time at the Soccerplex, and plan to be a part of many more practices and games in the years to come.  We enjoy the friendships and life lessons that have been learned since becoming a part of an already amazing organization.  Please consider me for a position on the PGSA board so that I can become a part of helping PGSA develop boys and girls through the sport of soccer.

Thank you
