Sockers Announce Barnes' Return
Coach led turnaround season in West Texas this summer
Following a strong turnaround in 2014, Midland-Odessa Sockers FC is looking to expand upon that success in the coming seasons. The franchise took the first step to that end today with the announcement that head coach Matt Barnes will return for a second year with the club. Barnes was hired in November 2013 and guided the team to a 7-4-3 record, finishing in a second-place tie in the PDL's Mid South Division this summer.
