Euan Holden (born 2 February 1988) is an American professional soccer player who currently plays for Stockport County in the Conference National. He is the younger brother of Bolton Wanderers and USA international midfielder, Stuart Holden.

Career

Club career

Holden signed a one year contract with Vejle BK after a trial with the club,[1] despite having been drafted by Houston Dynamo in the 2010 MLS SuperDraft,[2] the former club of his brother Stuart.[3] Following the season, Holden's contract was mutually voided after injuries prevented him from establishing himself at Vejle, having been limited to only two substitute appearances.[4]

During September and October 2010, he had trials at English Football League clubs Crewe Alexandra, where he appeared for the reserves against Shrewsbury Town,[5] and Derby County, for whom he featured in a reserve defeat to Rotheram United.[6] From 9 February 2011 Euan went on trial at Oldham Athletic.[7] On 20 April 2011, Holden confirmed on his Twitter account that he had signed for FC Hjørring. Later that year, he joined Stockport County on a two year contract, and made 33 appearances in the 2011-12 season. Under new boss Jim Gannon, he was deemed surplus to requirements and not given a squad number for the following season, despite remaining on the playing staff. He has since been on trial at other clubs, including Southend.[8]

International career

Being eligible to represent Scotland, national team manager Craig Levein has been keeping tabs on his progress.[9]

Personal life

Holden and his brother, Stuart, were both born in the city of Aberdeen. Holden emigrated at the age of seven to the United States.

Holden's father lost a six-year battle with cancer in early 2009. He has a mother and sister still living in Houston.[10]
