A.J. Soares isn’t the only footballer with ties to New England who’s anxious to continue his career in Scandinavia this year.

Former Western Mass Pro Soccer striker Will Daniels has signed a contract with Icelandic second division side KF Aegir following a successful week-long trial in which he scored and assisted in two preseason scrimmages.

Daniels, who tallied seven times in 10 games for the Lusitanos during the fall 2014 ASL campaign, will join Aegir ahead of their 2015 campaign, which kicks off on May 9.

“It was good,” Daniels told of his trial. “It was a very good experience for me to get to see a difference professional angle than what I’ve seen in the United States … they treated me very well, made me feel at home.”

Daniels originally joined the Western Mass organization in 2013 after spending the bulk of the PDL season with the Kitsap Pumas. He scored in his Pioneers debut, and returned for the 2014 season. In 14 games, he scored five goals and added two assists for the Ludlow-based selection before moving on to join the organization’s pro club for the fall.

The 6-0, 172lbs. forward attended Quinnipiac University (Ct.) from 2010-12.
