EL PASO, Texas -- The El Paso Locomotive FC continued this week to add depth by signing pacey Jamaican midfielder, Saeed Robinson, pending league and federation approval.
Robinson spent the past two seasons with USL Championship side Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC where he featured 59 times and scored eight goals. Prior to his professional debut, Robinson played his collegiate career with West Texas College and Grand Canyon University.
“By signing a player like Saeed, we are continuing our mission of bringing top-notch talent to El Paso. Saeed is an out and out offensive threat that can dribble or shoot and he gives us more depth on our roster. Saeed has proven that he can compete at this level and is a player with loads of pace. I am thrilled to have him in the team,” said Locos head coach Mark Lowry.
Robinson is now the 18th rostered player for the 2020 campaign, joining newcomers Distel Zola, Fabrice Fokobo and Marios Lomis. Fourteen members of the inaugural team have re-signed for the second season, keeping the core of the successful first-year team intact.
