Lincoln Phillips, coach of the Washington Darts of the North American Soccer League, left this week to tour the West Indies in search of two new players for the Darts' inaugural season in the NASL.

Phillips, the Darts' player-coach, is interested in signing a defender plus a winger, in order to strengthen the former ASL Champions. Phillips, prior to the 1967 season, signed two players from Trinidad, Gerry Browne, Victor Gamaldo, both of which were outstanding players for the ASL champions.

The Darts' Coach was named ASL Coach of the Year in 1969 in the ASL, and also was named the All-Star Goalie for the last two years. While showing the best goaltending record in the League, Phillips led in shutouts, blanking opponents 14 times.
