DC United's Under 23 developmental soccer team was in town Sunday night to play an exhibition against an alumni collection of players from the Roanoke Star club squad.
      But before that the folks from United put on a clinic for nearly a hundred youngsters ages 7 to 12 at Cave Spring's Bogle Stadium.   It was an opportunity for the kids to take the field with D.C. United U-23 staff and players, and included interactive elements straight from the Academy training program.
        It was all part of an effort to grow the DC United brand and expand the fan base in our region.
