REAL MARYLAND FC SIGNS TWO FROM
U-23 CUBAN NATIONAL TEAM
April 15, 2009 – Silver Spring, MD – On the last day of the first international window, Real Maryland FC is pleased to announce the signings of two international players from Cuba - Yendry Diaz and pending USSF approval, Loanny Cartaya. Both are former players from the U-23 Cuban National Team.
Yendry and Loanny come to the Monarchs hoping to solidify the midfield and back line, two critical spots for the team. “I am more than excited to have players like Yendry and Loanny on the squad,” said Coach Hudson. “They bring a level of experience and approach to the game from having trained with the Cuban National Program.” Hudson spotted Diaz at the annual United Soccer Leagues’ Player Combine that was held in Charleston, SC and immediately noticed his unique combination of skill and size.
Diaz has made two appearances and Cartaya has made one, for the U-23 Cuban National Team and are looking forward to making their first professional appearances for Real Maryland FC and the United Soccer Leagues. “We can’t wait to get the season started,” said Diaz and Cartaya. Both Yendry and Loanny bring very different qualities to the team. They are both hungry to play and progress in the game, but one in the defensive line and the other in the attacking midfield line “I am happy that both players have landed here at Real Maryland FC,” said General Manager David Noyes. “I think they add a very important piece to what we are trying to accomplish here.” .
The Monarchs open their 2nd season in the Second Division of the United Soccer Leagues on April 25th against the Bermuda Hogges. The game will be played at Richard Montgomery High School’s Lester Stadium. The match begins at 6 pm. For tickets, please contact .
