The Glens will take the week off before resuming their schedule against FC Golden State Force at home on Sunday May 26 at 4pm. The Breakers have a quick turnaround with a Sunday game against the San Diego Zest (LA Galaxy U23s) Sunday May 19 at 1pm.
In a rivalry game that was the home opener for SF City, and the season opener for the Glens the two teams picked off where they left off last year at Kezar. While the Glens got on the board early, it was City that drew even at 1-1 only to see the visitors take the lead 2-1. However, the result was different this time with the home team winning 3-2.
City will hit the road with a game at San Diego on Saturday May 11 5pm kickoff. The Glens will do so likewise with two Southern California matches against the Golden State Force on Friday May 10 at 7pm and at the Orange County 2 on Sunday May 12 at 2pm before opening up their home schedule on Friday May 17 at 6pm against the Santa Cruz Breakers.
In their final tuneup before opening up the 2019 USL League 2 (formerly PDL) season at Santa Cruz, City scored a goal in the second half to get a 1-0 over hosts Menlo College at their Atherton campus. However, the hosts were able to sneak in a goal in the waning minutes of the match to get a 1-1 draw.
SF City opens up their season with a road trip at Santa Cruz on Friday May 3 at 8pm. They kick off their home opener against inter-city rival the Glens 2 days later on Sunday May 5 at 6pm.
The Glens came off with a 6-3 victory over the Academy of Art in their preseason tuneup at the Beach Chalet.
The Glens will have one more friendly, this time against the San Jose Earthquakes reserves on Saturday April 27 5pm at Skyline College in San Bruno. Admission is free. Of note: the main team will be on the road at Dallas on the same day with a 12:30pm kickoff on Univision.
The Glens will open their season the road against SF City on Sunday May 5 with a 6pm start time. They will continue their away slate with 2 games at Southern California–one against Golden State Force on Friday May 10 and then Orange County U23s on Sunday May 12 before opening up their home schedule Friday May 17 against the Santa Cruz Breakers 6pm kickoff.
After a 9 month hiatus SF City finally made their 2019 debut with a friendly against the Academy of Art at the Beach Chalet fields. The result did not go their way as the college scored 3 unanswered goals to give them a 3-1 win. The match was merely to try out some players who could make the roster at the start of their USL League 2 (formerly PDL) campaign beginning May 3.

Also, Jimmy Conrad was introduced as the SF Glens Technical Director/Associate Head Coach. It looks like that he will be coaching not only the PDL (USL: League Two) outfit as an assistant but also will be overseeing the various teams under the team’s umbrella ranging from futsal to the youth groups. Conrad’s playing resume includes stints with the San Jose Earthquakes/Clash, Kansas City Wizards (Sporting Kansas City), and in college with UCLA. He also played in the 2006 World Cup for the USA.
The latest interview is with Jimmy Conrad at path2prosoccer.com and also there are other chats with Reno 1868 coach Ian Russell, former SF Deltas coach and current LAFC assistant Marc Dos Santos (who has been linked to the Quakes and Whitecaps head coaching jobs), Todd Dunivant, Paul Holocher, and Nick Lima to name.
