The Queen City Football Club is extremely excited to announce the hiring of Mark Sienko to take over as the Director of Operations for the club. Mark will begin slowly in the fall while being fully integrated beginning in November. In addition to running the day to day operations of the club, Mark will direct the boys groups under 12 (younger than 2007 birth year).
"Mark brings many years of experience, expertise and energy to our program as a coach and a formal professional player. We are extremely excited to have someone of his stature in the Vermont community join our leadership team as well as work with our fine players," said Shane Bufano, Queen City FC President.
Mark is a local product from Shelburne, Vermont, and brings extensive soccer experience to the program as both player and coach. Mark has a diverse background in soccer where he is currently an assistant coach entering his 5th season with the women's soccer program at Middlebury College. The Panthers reached the NCAA tournament last season and had a final ranking of #18 in the country. In addition, he has spent the past decade working at Nordic Soccer Club with various premier teams. His love of coaching stemmed from a successful playing career where he was a standout at perennial powerhouse Champlain Valley Union High School. After high school, Mark played club soccer at the University of Vermont and then continued on to play professionally in Poland for Stal Rzeszow ZKS and also in Northern Ireland for Coleraine FC.
