Summer 2011: Urbana University Announces Signing of VEC's Goalkeeper

Urbana University in Ohio in the USA is a full member of NCAA Division II -  Urbana University Head Men's Soccer Coach Nick Roberts has announced 4 international signings , focusing first on the keeper position.  The Blue Knights' 2010 starting goalkeepers are not returning in 2011, leaving an immediate need at the position. "This left us with a huge hole to fill in 2011," explained Roberts.  "The need to find two quality goalkeepers became our biggest priority.  Thankfully, we have just completed signing two outstanding goalkeepers with a multitude of experience and talent. 

The first signee is goalkeeper Antons Trifonovs, a  6'2 goalkeeper and a 2-year associate degree graduate from Lakeland Community College in Mentor, Ohio. Trifonovs is a native of Latvia.

In addition, the Blue Knights will add another very talented goalkeeper from Dublin, Ireland.  Darragh McGinley, a 6'1 goalkeeper, is a graduate student from the Institute of Art and Design in Dublin.  McGinley provides another credible and talented player to the Blue Knights' roster in 2011-12.

"McGinley is an accomplished goalkeeper and a great addition to our University and team," said Roberts. McGinley was signed from VEC FC in Dublin, Ireland.
