The Fury FC had been hinting at a signing or two for the past week or so, dropping hints that he is a defender with CONCACAF experience, and today, Chris Hofley of Ottawa Sun confirmed that Jamaican int’l RB O’Brian Woodbine has been at training with Ottawa and is expected to sign with the club this week.
Woodbine comes in with international experience with his country, playing for Jamaica in the 2010 WC qualifiers, has played for Charleston Battery (USL), and was most recently signed to New England Revolution, though he did not appear in any MLS matches.
Woodbine fills a need in our defense with the loan recall of RB Ryan Richter, the injury to CB/RB Drew Beckie, and the suspension of RW/RB Phil Davies. He should provide good competition to RB Andres Fresenga, who is returning from injury, and CB/RB Kenny Caceros, who Hofley reported has been training with the starting XI this week for the match vs. Carolina.
