Three in the morning:
*A three-round WPS dispersal draft for the 20 players from the defunct Sol begins at 10 a.m. today. St. Louis has the first pick: Marta or Torrance’s Shannon Boxx?
*The disintegration of the Carson-based David Beckham Academy is apparently all but complete (and yes, I’m aware the link to the local academy redirects to Beckham’s defunct London branch, which merely underlines the point): Stephen Myles, 48, the academy’s director of competition the last two years has joined the New England Revolution as assistant coach.
He also spent the last two seasons coaching the LA Galaxy’s Under-16 team and was at Sheffied United for nine years before relocating to the U.S.
Kenny Arena – the son of Galaxy coach Bruce Arena – is now head coach of the U-16 team, BTW.
*Finally, the USWNT is wrapping up its three-week camp at Home Depot Center ahead of the Algarve Cup.
