Dundee FC-Dynamo Juniors of Central Texas
Dynamo Juniors of Central Texas (DJCT) Executive Director, John Nelms, has been named Director of Football Operations and to the Board of Directors of Dundee FC in the Scottish Professional Football League. John, as part of a group entitled Football Partners Scotland (FPS), has invested in Dundee FC to help the 120-year-old club back into the top flight of Scotland - the Scottish Premiership. John, as part of his role, will oversee the youth academy program for the Dark Blues, the nickname for Dundee FC.
The affiliation between Dundee FC and DJCT will be unique to just about any youth soccer club in the country. DJCT will have the ability to send players to Scotland to train with Dundee FC Academy, along with Dundee FC coaches/players traveling to the U.S. to compete with & against DJCT teams/players.
John will still serve as the ED for DJCT, but will split his time between Dundee, Scotland and Austin, TX. DJCT’s affiliation with the Houston Dynamo, as the only MLS-affiliated club in Central Texas, remains with the club serving as an official affiliate.
