It was a big weekend for two Arizona natives as Richie Ledezma made his first team debut for PSV and Sam Gleadle was signed by Major League Soccer's Minnesota United FC.
Ledezma (Phoenix native) was a 74th minute substitute with PSV already up 2-0 in the Eredivisie (the Netherlands). In the 83rd minute Ledezma notched his first assist.
This year, Ledezma has made seven appearances for Jong PSV (reserve team) scoring two goals and recording one assist. In 2019, Ledezma was named to the U.S. U-20 World Cup roster where he made two appearances and recorded one assist against France in a Round of 16 win.
Gleadle (Gilbert native) joins Minnesota United after spending two seasons with USL's Reno 1868 FC where he appeared in 43 matches while scoring seven goals, and notching seven assists. In 2019, he was named Reno's Young Player of the Year. Minnesota is currently 4th in the West Conference and Gleadle is eligible to play in matches for Minnesota this season. If you're not familiar with Gleadle, check out this interview from back in 2018 when he first signed professionally.
