Seattle Sounders winger Lamar Neagle is enjoying the challenge of being involved with a MLS club.

The 22-year old local product made his professional debut with the Sounders against English giants Chelsea, which he described as ‘overwhelming’ but is also enjoying the development side of things as he strives to get some regular first team game time.

“It was pretty much overwhelming – playing Chelsea, my debut, hometown, 65,000 fans,” Neagle said of taking his first official kicks for the Seattle Sounders FC.

“Everything kind of just added up.

“It definitely has been a great thing for me, especially trying to adjust to a different level,” he added.

“It has been challenging, but I think I’ve done all right. So hopefully, I keep improving and get some time.”
