Completing another impactful deal over the weekend, Louisville City FC is pleased to today announce the signing of midfielder Devon “Speedy” Williams to a new contract.
The 26-year-old officially agreed to terms to return to the reigning USL Cup champions and has re-joined the squad ahead of the Club’s 2019 preseason camp.
After inking the deal, Williams told LouisvilleCityFC.com:
“I’m really excited to be back with a special group of guys. We are all looking forward to competing at the highest level again and succeeding together.”
The Kingston, Jamaica native has won three consecutive USL Cup championships—two with LouCity (2017, 2018) and one with New York Red Bulls II (2016).
Coach John Hackworth sees Williams’ signing as one of the final pieces to his competitive roster:
“Speedy is a key returning player for us. His consistency last year and performances throughout the season and into the playoffs was an important part of our success. We’re thrilled to have him back and are again ready to work with him as we elevate our quality and expectations for the season.”
As preparations continue, Season Ticket Membership packages for the 2019 USL season are still available for purchase.
