FC Steel, a youth soccer organization that is headquartered in Saucon Valley, had a host of teams who were in action over the weekend in league play.  All FC Steel teams are participating in Eastern Development Program (EDP) this year.  The EDP league is a competitive travel soccer league that arranges for high level teams to compete on a routine basis. The EDP league is a regional league meaning teams can expect to play other quality teams that are located in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
