St. Louis Scott Gallagher will join the USL League Two in the Heartland division beginning May, 2021.
“We’re thrilled to welcome an organization with the pedigree of St. Louis Scott Gallagher to the league,” said USL League Two Vice President Joel Nash. “As one of the top youth soccer clubs in the nation, its values align perfectly with League Two’s, and I’m excited to see how the addition of a senior team will bolster the club’s development efforts."
Led by SLSG Academy Director, Steve Trittschuh, Saint Louis Scott Gallagher will compete in USL League Two's heartland division against Des Moines Menace, Green Bay Voyageurs, Kaw Valley FC, Peoria City, Chicago FC United, and FC Wichita.

“We are extremely excited to be joining USL League Two,” said St. Louis Scott Gallagher Club President and former U.S. men’s national team player Brad Davis. “As we continue to push forward and provide our club and members with a great experience, this gives us the ability to provide another platform for our players to develop. This is a great addition for our player pathway and we want to thank USL League Two for the opportunity.”
