''It was my first full season playing with the (under) 23, it was pretty great,'' Olosunde said to the Trentonian Soccer.
''I really enjoyed it and had a pretty successful season for the most part. I really grew as a player and being able to get called up to the first team a couple times was a great experience.''
He added : '' (My goal) To make my debut, I hope to achieve that this season. If I can make a couple more appearances after that and maybe stay as a steady option for the first team.''
