NYCFC players stop by soccer practice in Mullaly Park

Two players from the New York City Football Club stopped by at Mullaly Park Saturday to give some words of motivation to some young soccer players.



Tony Taylor and Connor Brandt met with about 100 kids from a youth ministry in Yonkers who kept their heart rate up by running drills and playing scrimmages.



It's part of new initiative between the football club and Goya foods to help soccer fans lead healthy lifestyles.



"I think it's good for them to get out and have fun, you know, make friends and enjoy being outside," Taylor told News 12.
