History[edit]

North Sound SeaWolves was announced as a USL Premier Development League expansion franchise on November 29, 2010.[1] The team is, essentially, a replacement for the Yakima Reds franchise, which folded at the end of the 2010 season after over a decade in the league, and which was also owned by SeaWolves owner Alex Silva.

The team announced on February 23, 2011 that they had signed former English Premier League player Adam Nowland as player-coach for the SeaWolves' inaugural season.[2] Nowland will serve as assistant coach to head coach Alex Silva as well as be a field player for the squad.

The club signed long-time Seattle Sounders (USL) player Craig Tomlinson on 18 March 2011.[3]

The SeaWolves played their first competitive game on May 7, 2011, a 0-0 tie with the Washington Crossfire.[4]

On January 16, 2013, the club rebranded as Puget Sound Gunners FC after partnering with the Issaquah Soccer Club. [5]

On January 29, 2016, the Gunners PDL franchise rights were sold to the Victoria Highlanders so they could rejoin the PDL. [6]
