Jersey Express is an American soccer team based in Newark, New Jersey, United States. Founded in 2007, the team plays in the USL Premier Development League (PDL), the fourth tier of the American Soccer Pyramid, in the Mid Atlantic Division of the Eastern Conference. Prior to the 2011 season the team was known as Newark Ironbound Express.
The team plays its home games at Lubetkin Field on the campus of the New Jersey Institute of Technology, where they have played since 2008. The team's colors are white and burgundy.
Newark Ironbound Express entered the PDL having enjoyed a great deal of success at a junior level with their Ironbound SC club, which was a major force in the USL Super-Y League for several years. The senior Express team began life in the PDL with a bang with a 4-1 opening day victory over fellow expansion team New Jersey Rangers that featured a brace from former New York Red Bull and current Haitian international Jerrod Laventure. Ironbound were consistent all year long, enjoying several impressive victories over much more established sides, notably a 3-0 over Ottawa Fury in early June (in which Ted Niziolek scored a hat trick), a 4-0 win on the road against Ocean City Barons (which featured a Laventure hat-trick), a dominant 3-1 win over 2007's unbeatable Hampton Roads Piranhas, and a battling 4-2 triumph over Virginia Legacy. By the time the final weekend rolled around, they were still in with a shot at a place in the Eastern Conference playoffs: they enjoyed overpowering 6-2 demolition of Westchester Flames, in which Chris Karcz netted three times, and were fortunate to make the playoffs ahead of Ottawa Fury, who had an exactly equal record, but lost out on head-to-head results. Unfortunately, Ironbound's trip to the playoff was a short one as they fell 4-2 first time out to eventual Conference champions Reading Rage, but for a young side in their debut season there was much to applaud. Chris Karcz and Jerrod Laventure were monsters in front of goal, scoring 10 and 9 goals respectively.
The team formally rebranded as Jersey Express on January 6, 2011.
As of June 8, 2011.
