72nd Minute

Another match in the books for your Contra Costa FC as they took a 1-0 victory over Elk Grove Everton FC in Liga NorCal. For the second match in a row rain and wind drastically altered the outcome of the match, as well as dictated the pace of play. CCFC held possession for the majority of the match as opportunity after opportunity seemed to slip by. It wasn't until the 72nd minute that Max Mirner finally found the back of the net as a ball was slotted across the face of the goal. The Elk Grove keeper made a valiant effort but the ball slipped by to put CCFC up 1-0. CCFC never looked back as they maintained possession and continued to earn opportunities on goal.
Up next, your Contra Costa FC takes on Pajaro Valley United at home, February 16th, in a UPSL friendly.

Contra Costa FC holds on playing with 10 men

The weather was a major factor in last weeks match; however, the elements were not the only thing that caused a rift. In the infancy of the match a CCFC player received a “last man” red card, which made Coach Brown adjust his match tactics rather quickly. Playing down CCFC found a way to play together and put 3 goals in the back of the net. Acoreano never stopped playing and put pressure on CCFC while Konstantino stayed strong in goal. CCFC moves on in the league to host Elk Grove Everton FC this upcoming weekend, Saturday February 9th at 6:00pm.

UPSL Announces Contra Costa FC as Western Conference Expansion Team

The United Premier Soccer League (UPSL) is pleased to announce Contra Costa Football Club as a member starting with the 2019 Spring Season.

Based in Concord (Calif.), Contra Costa FC will begin UPSL play in the Western Conference Wild West Division and play its UPSL home games this season at Northgate High School Stadium (425 Castle Rock Rd., Walnut Creek, CA 94598) in compliance with UPSL’s Minimum Standards.

United Premier Soccer League Wild West Division Manager Nick Arellano said, “Contra Costa FC is a well-run club and we think they’ll be a great addition to the already competitive UPSL Wild West Division. The Contra Costa FC staff has assembled a winning organization in Concord, and they are committed to being among the clubs competing for the UPSL 2019 Spring Season Championship.”

Contra Costa FC is owned by Mark Wine, 33, CEO of Functional Muscle Fitness and the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach at Concord (Calif.)’s De La Salle High School.

Contra Costa FC Owner Mark Wine said, “We feel like it’s the right time for the club. Our biggest goal is to bring a top level Pro Development club to this area. We feel like there’s a need to inspire the youth players that are all around, and give them a place to play as older players and role models to look up to. We need to take the next step up and the UPSL is where we want to be to play a higher level of competition. This is something that we want to do and something that we’ve promised to our players; It’s just one of those moments where we sensed it was the right time for us.”

Contra Costa FC has played in the prestigious NorCal Premier League since its inception in 2015, and claimed the Liga NorCal Copa Cup championship in May 2018.

“A lot of our players come from local youth clubs and that makes us unique because we’re not attached to any one youth club (and) because of that we’ve been able to build a bigger and stronger community,” Wine said. “We have a surrounding community of numerous clubs and we have representations from almost all of them, players which in many cases were the best players from those clubs.”

Gabe Cienfuegos serves as General Manager for Contra Costa FC. Cienfuegos, 34, played collegiately at Belmont (Calif.)’s Notre Dame de Namur University (2005-’06) and is a youth coach at Walnut Creek (Calif.) Surf Soccer Club.

Derricke Brown is Head Coach of Contra Costa FC. Brown played collegiately at Moraga (Calif.)’s St, Mary’s College and is in his eighth season as Head Coach at Concord (Calif.)’s De La Salle HS, where he’s led the boys varsity soccer team to four California Interscholastic Federation section titles in six championship game appearances. Brown also coaches at Walnut Creek (Calif.) Surf SC.

Jon Scoles is the Director of Player Development and serves as an Assistant Coach for Contra Costa FC. The Director of Coaching at Heritage Soccer Club, Scoles also is a Men’s Soccer Coach at Contra Costa Community College.

The club is hosting its next tryout on Jan. 13, 2019, and will announce its upcoming game schedule.
