Bayonne, NJ - NJ Teamsters FC is pleased to announce Michael "Nana" Crentsil has accepted an internship with the club and will be working closely with President/GM Alex Geraldino and Director of Operations, Joe Santella. Michael is a NJ Teamsters FC 'center back' who tried out for the team in 2017; he's a starter since our 1st Pro Premier Season earlier this year with United Premier Soccer League and is one of the most respected leaders on the team.

Mr. Crentsil hails from Newark, New Jersey, is a senior at St. Peter's University and is a fierce center back for St. Peter's Peacocks and of course, NJ Teamsters FC! Working with the front office team will allow Crentsil to earn college credits, a stipend and will provide hands on experience in scouting, operations and sports management.

Alex Geraldino is excited to have Mr. Crentsil as a part of the front office staff. Geraldino says, "NJ Teamsters continues to strive towards hiring from within, to give opportunities to our players. When Nana applied for the position, he submitted his resume after seeing the social media post, passed two interviews and will begin working with Santella and I next week. His knowledge, dedication and level of interest to excel not only on the pitch but, also off the pitch, is commendable."

We look forward to sharing more exciting news about Nana!
