STEINKOPF AND BAKER COMPLETE LOAN TO NEPTUNE CITY F.C.
ASBURY PARK F.C. SEND STEINKOPF AND BAKER ON LOAN TO LOCAL RIVAL NEPTUNE CITY F.C.
Punk stalwarts and Neptune City residents move to their local club for the remainder of the 2017 campaign
ASBURY PARK, NJ., (Monday, Nov. 6, 2017) --
Asbury Park F.C. has sent club legends Pete Steinkopf and Brian Baker on loan to Monmouth County rivals Neptune City F.C. effective immediately, the club announced today.
Steinkopf, influential guitarist for New Jersey punk icons The Bouncing Souls, will take over at forward for the injury-laden side while star striker Jody Fishmonger recovers from a recent foot tattoo.
Baker, co-founder of Minor Threat and Dag Nasty in addition to being long-time guitarist for Bad Religion, will bring experience and versatility to the midfield in the absence of the suspended Pete Inelda.
“While the presence of Pete and Brian will be missed around the clubhouse, the chance to help out our noisy neighbors is one the club would never turn down,” says Asbury Park F.C. Co-Chair Shawn Francis. “Also, they’re going to pay their wages while they are away so our hope is that what we save on salary can be spent on a new hot tub for the club training ground. The old one only gets lukewarm now and that’s just gross.”
