The Austin Aztex is Austin's only professional soccer club and the first MAJOR professional sports franchise in Austin, Texas. It was founded in 2008 by Phil Rawlins, a British-born, Austin-area entrepreneur, who also has ownership interest in Stoke City FC, which plays in the English Premier League. The two teams have an official affiliation that includes exchanging players, talent scouting, and sharing best practices.
Heath comes to the Aztex and the United States with a wealth of experience as both a top-level player and coach in Europe for more than 20 years. He played professionally in Europe for 18 years beginning his career with his hometown club, Stoke City, before moving on to play for Everton, Espanyol, Aston Villa and Manchester City.
With Everton, Heath won two League Championships, the FA Cup and European Cup Winners Cup in a six-year span. His performances for the club earned him a place in the Everton Hall of Fame.

Hopefully I can get to their friendly pre-season warm-up tomorrow night v Houston Dynamos — and if any other "local" Evertonians can make it, then wear your Everton shirts to make Inchy feel at "home" and wish him the best. I personally would love to meet up with him to thank him for all the fantastic memories I have of the fabulous 80s, even including "that" night at Oxford where it all began....
