SSM would like to congratulate Charleston Battery midfielder and 2011 and 2012 Team MVP Nicholas Paterson for winning the 2012 USL PRO Championship.  The Charleston Battery went on to defeat the Wilmington Hammerheads 1-0 in front of 4963 fans at Blackbaud Stadium in Charleston, South Carolina.  Click HERE for the official press release from the game.

SSM's President and Players' Agent Justin Stone traveled to take part of the weekend festivities and spent time with Nicki Paterson exploring Charleston and relaxing prior to the match.  Justin Stone had a chance to visit the famous 3 Lions Pub and take in some of the great memorabelia located throughout the bar which brought back some very good memories in soccer history including Manchester United's 1999 Treble winning side.

The Battery dominated play and Paterson lined up in his usual free role in midfield.  Paterson created a few scoring chances both attempting shots on goal and providng good looks for his teammates.  He also ran constant breaking up plays and defending well.  

Once the final whistle blew, the local crowd applauded with excitement to see the Battery finish the season with the league's top prize.  Here are a few photos during the celebration:

The team stayed around on the pitch as the Battery fans were able to celebrate on the field and get autographs from the Battery players.  Everyone then headed to the Pub for more celebration that included parading the Cup around with the fans and players.  Here is a photo of Justin Stone and Nicki Paterson with the Cup:

Paterson also was able to share good news that evening as it was confirmed that the New York Red Bulls placed an MLS discovery on him and would bring him in the following week for evaluation in time prior to the MLS Roster Freeze.  Paterson performed well in his week, and the New York Red Bull coaching staff asked him to stay with the club for further evaluation after deciding to sign a defender for their remaining roster spot.  During his NYRB stint, Paterson played in two reserve matches notching an assists in both games against Toronto FC and New England Revolution.  

Stay tuned to find out where Paterson will play in 2013 and once gain congratulations to him for his team and individual success!
