Kearny Soccer: John Harkes

May 16, 2014 (Kearny, NJ) The Major Leaque Soccer Leaque has put together a short film entitled Great Scot about John Harkes and his selection along with Tab Ramos and Tony Meola as starters for the 1990 United States World Cup Team. The film traces the roots of a strong soccer tradition in town from Scotland and Scottish workers who immigated to the United States to work in the mills in Kearny. Immigrants continue to this day with the greater West Hudson Soccer Tradition.

The film has scenes in Kearny including a walk with John Harkes and his father Jim Harkes from his home to the Scots Club in Kearny. The Scots Club soccer teams have played and continue to play a role in Kearny's rich soccer tradition and history. The film is directed and edited by Jim Podhoretz for the MLS Insider sponsored by Adidas.
